Survey Collection Plugin

April 7, 2023

Attention all Disciple.Tools users!

We are happy to announce the release of our new survey collection and reporting plugin.

This tool helps ministries collect and present the activity of their team members, enabling you to track both lead and lag metrics. With regular collection from the field, you’ll get better data and trends than sporadic and infrequent collection.

This plugin gives each team member their own form to report their activity, and automatically sends them a link to the form every week. You’ll be able to see a summary of each member’s activity and give each member a summary of their activity on their dashboard.

Additionally, this plugin allows you to work and celebrate together with the combined metrics summary on the global dashboard.

We encourage you to check out the documentation for more information on how to set up the plugin, add team members, view and customize the form, and auto-send email reminders. We welcome your contributions and ideas in the Issues and Discussions sections of the GitHub repository.

Thanks for using Disciple.Tools, and we hope you enjoy this new feature!

Thank you Team Expansion for funding a portion of the development! We invite you to give if you are interested in contributing towards this plugin or supporting the creation of more like it.

Curious about Magic Links? Heard about them before?

A magic link might look like this:

Prayer Campaigns V.2 and Ramadan 2023

January 27, 2023

Prayer Campaigns v2

We are happy to announce that in this new version the Prayer Campaigns plugin is ready for Ramadan 2023 and Ongoing Prayer Campaigns.

Ongoing prayer campaigns

We could already create prayer campaigns for fixed time periods (like Ramadan). But more than a month wasn't ideal.
With v2 we have introduced "ongoing" prayer campaigns. Set a start date, no end end, and see how many people we can mobilize to pray.
Prayer "warriors" will be able to sign up for 3 months and then have the opportunity to extend and keep on praying.

Ramadan 2023

We'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to join in praying and mobilizing prayer for the Muslim world during Ramadan in 2023.

To mobilize 27/4 prayer for the people or place God has put on your heart the process involves:

  1. Signing up on
  2. Customizing your page
  3. Inviting your network to pray

Disciple.Tools Summit Summary

December 8, 2022

In October, we held the first ever Disciple.Tools Summit. It was a great experimental gathering that we intend to repeat in the future. We want to share what happened, what the community thought about it and invite you into the conversation. Sign up to be notified about future events at Disciple.Tools/summit.

We’ve captured all the notes from the key breakout sessions and hope to make them public soon. We used a framework of discussing the current state of a given topic and what is good about it. We then continued into a discussion around what is wrong, missing or confusing. Conversations that led us to several “We must” statements for each topic, which will help lead the community forward.

Starting in 2023, we plan to hold regular community calls to demo new features and use cases.

Disciple.Tools Webform v5.7 – Shortcodes

December 5, 2022

Avoid duplicates on form submittion

We've added a new option to reduce the number of duplicate contacts in your D.T instance.

Normally, when a contact submits their email and/or phone number a new contact record is created in Disciple.Tools. Now when the form is submitted we have the option to check if that email or phone number already exists in the system. If no matches are found, it creates the contact record as usual. If it finds the email or phone number, then it updates the existing contact record instead and adds the submitted info.


The form submittion will @mention the assigned to all record the form contents:
