Not Tax exempt? "Uncheck" the Tax Exempt checkbox and click "Save Changes". By setting your account to not tax exempt, we'll automatically charge sales tax on your monthly invoice. 

Enable Unlimited Text Messages

Breeze allows users to text one or more people at a time for quick communication. The texting tool is meant for one-way communication and cannot receive replies. Churches can send 250 text messages per month at no additional charge. While we do pay for each text (and so need to have boundaries at some point), you're welcome to enable unlimited texting to exceed the 250 monthly limit. It's just one penny per text after the first 250.

Login Page Logo

The logo attached here will display at your URL login page. This is helpful for your users as it visually confirms they are in the right location. This also appears in your volunteer reminders in the header image.

Supported image formats: jpeg, png, gif, tiff and bmp. 

Breeze will automatically resize the image, keeping proportions the same.

  • Is there a recommended width/height for the log-in image?

    do any of you use it to remind people of contact info or a privacy policy link?

    many of our members are just learning how to use breeze and i'm thinking we might get some mileage out of this.

    No matter the size, Breeze does format it to fit the page appropriately. As far as dimensions go, 400x400 pixels may be a great size for a logo. Also, making sure it's a .png (with no color background) could be beneficial to it appearing nicely on the page! 

    I have not heard of anyone using it with a privacy policy as it may not be clearly seen after uploading. 

     

    Cheers!

  • I see we can add our own image/logo to be used on login page. I was wondering if the same is true for the normal pages we navigate that have the breeze logo in the top left hand corner. I have no issue with the site being branded but it was just the mix of being able to have our logo on the login page but NOT on the other pages. Any info regarding that? Thanks!

    Great question! Currently, there isn't any additional branding functionality within Breeze for other pages. If this is something that you feel your church needs, we'd certainly love for you to voice your need for this customization. Click Here: Submitting Feature Requests

    We look forward to hearing from you again soon!

  • How can I remove an outdated note on my weekly giving to my church? Even though I've canceled and reinstated this weekly giving at least two times, the note section for my gifts have read "Balance for Mexico mission trip" for two years. I can't figure out how to remove this note. Thanks for your help, Mary Vanac

  • @maryvanac!

    Thanks for reaching out! So sorry that this happened! Good news, I have went ahead and removed this note for you. Because of the way it was stored, we had to remove it from the backend!

    Hope this is helpful!

    Blessings!

  • The CSS for the login page limits the image to 100 pixels high by 300 pixels wide, constricting both the height and the width. Please add the height limit to the documentation above. Also, Steven Ivey's advice on 2/13/2020 for a 400px square logo is pretty bad, as that will be displayed as a 100px x 100px square. 

    I'm also submitting a feature request to display the Church Name field on the login page, whether or not there's a logo, and to use the Church Name as the alt text for the logo. It's surprising that that's not already a feature. Even with a logo, since there's no option for alt text, people with accessibility issues may not get any verification that they're on the right page.

  • @Thomas-Thanks for the feedback. Great idea on the feature request to display the Church Name field on the login page regardless of logo use! I could see that being a very helpful addition, especially for accessibility.
    Thanks for clarifying the image limits as well. I'm going to be updating our article to provide additional clarity there. Ultimately, however, the uploaded logo will maintain its proportion if reduced.
    We have some additional tips on image recommendations as well (directly related to email, but indirectly relevant here as it pertains to file size, color, and resolution) at https://support.breezechms.com/hc/en-us/articles/360008612033
    Thanks again, Thomas, for submitting that feature request as well - that really does help our Product team know how and where can best serve churches and ministries.
