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:

Disciple.Tools and Media to Movement efforts

February 3, 2021

Disciple.Tools is frequently a tool of choice for media to movement practitioners. A collaborative effort to learn how Media to Movements (MTM) efforts are implemented around the world is being conducted through a large scale survey.  As part of the Disciple.Tools community, we want to gain insight from your experience.

If you haven’t, please complete this anonymous survey by Monday, February 8 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern London time (UTC -0)?

This will take 15-30 minutes depending on the length of your answers. Please make sure you have enough time to answer every question. 

It is possible that one or more of your teammates are receiving the same request to complete this survey. We welcome more than one response per team or organization. If you get the same request from others, please fill out only one survey.

Regardless of your experience level, the information you provide will lead to insights about what works and where there are gaps in implementing MTM. These insights will help everyone use MTM more effectively.

Feel free to pass on this survey link to others you have trained in MTM. If those whom you trained are unable to do the survey in English – could you serve as an advocate for their opinions by helping them fill out the survey? Everyone’s contribution is important. 

Our goal is to release the results of the survey by April 7, 2021. The results from last year’s survey have been broadly distributed and have helped improve MTM training methods around the world.

The organizations co-sponsoring this survey are:

  • Crowell Trust
  • Frontiers
  • International Mission Board
  • Jesus Film Project
  • Kavanah Media
  • Kingdom.Training
  • Maclellan Foundation
  • Media to Movements (Pioneers)
  • Media Impact International 
  • M13
  • Mission Media U / Visual Story Network 
  • Strategic Resource Group
  • TWR Motion 

 Thank you for your willingness to share your MTM experiences.
