Now that you’ve acquired new Verbum resources for your church group, you’ll need to assign them to the members of your group. In this article, we’ll walk you through that process step by step.
Are you a license recipient? Skip ahead to instructions on how to get started with your new resource(s).
If you purchased resources, but don’t have permission to assign them, ask your group’s administrator for assistance. To find your group’s admin, click Directory in the navigation sidebar, and look for the group member(s) with the Admin tag.
If you’re still having trouble, give us a call at (800) 875-6467. We’re happy to help.
Step 1. Go to Faithlife.com and sign in to your account
Step 2. Find your church group
Step 3. If you haven’t done so already, invite the resource recipient(s) to join your group
Step 4. If sending new invites, wait for invitees to join the group
Step 5. Go to “Settings”
Step 6. Select “Licenses”
Step 7. Click “Assign” for the relevant resource(s)
Notice that some resources are automatically distributed to everyone in your group, while others must be manually assigned by an Admin.
Step 8. Add names and click “Assign”
Step 9. Let people know about their new resource!
Now that you’ve given your group members access to a resource, it’s time to let them know! We’re hard at work developing a way to notify your recipients automatically. Meanwhile, if you’ve purchased a resource for someone, here’s a message you can copy and paste into an email or send as a group message in Faithlife.
Share this message with your recipients:
“Hi [Name], I’ve given you access to [Resource Name]. You can start using it today by heading over to the Verbum web app. As soon as you’re logged in, click the library icon, search for the resource, and open it. That’s it!
You can also access the resource on the Verbum mobile app (search for the Verbum app in the iOS or Android store if you don’t have it already). There’s even a downloadable Verbum desktop app you can use if you prefer.
When you access Verbum on any of these platforms, you’ll log in with the same account you use on Faithlife.com. Let me know if you have any questions!
Hope you enjoy!”
