Breeze App

For consistency across platforms, the app received a new look and feel on June 1, 2021 to reflect the current, most up-to-date design when accessing Breeze through a web browser.

If you are looking for a Breezy way to access your Breeze database on the go, consider using the Breeze app. Because the Breeze app is a wrapper of our website, using the app should feel familiar! The look mimics the web based version you are accustom too, along with the functionality you need to complete important ministry tasks, all at the ease of your fingertips.

Sharing the app with your members is a great way to allow them to view information on their profile, to easily give online and to Manage their Recurring Giving, among many other things! (Each user experience may vary a little, as the features available are all based on the unique role permissions you have selected to provide

How to Access Breeze through the iOS App 

On July 22, 2021 an update was pushed to the iOS app. This requires the app to be updated. This updated different areas of the app and will change the icon on the home screen of your phone when accessing Breeze, as well as bring improvement to speed and allow for opening external links and export reports. 

  1. Download the Breeze App on your mobile device from the App Store for iOS.
    • The app icon on your home screen will display the Breeze logo (Image_2021-07-22_at_3.37.21_PM.jpg). 
  2. Open the App and click Login.
  3. Select Church by typing in your Church subdomain and hitting Continue
    • The subdomain is part of the URL that you use to log in. For instance, if you log in at cornerstone.breezechms.com, your Church ID is cornerstone. If you don't know your Church ID, please contact your church.
  4. You'll be prompted login entering your unique username and password
  5. Once you have successfully logged in, enjoy using the app! 
Click to view iOS App Limitations
  • Does not have the ability to edit Forms or Profile Fields (This is because of the drag and drop functionality required in these sections) 
  • Does not have the ability to restore archived people
  • Does not have the ability to view Profile Pictures in the "People" list view (Android users can use a web browser set to "Desktop site" to do view pictures)

If you run into some of the above App limitations you may want to try using a web browser on your mobile device to access Breeze. 

  1. On your Phone, go to a Web Browser (Safari, Google Chrome), and enter your full breeze url (example: www.churchname.breezechms.com)
  2. Log in with your Breeze Credentials
  3. You will now be able to access the Breeze platform on your phone, without the app. 

If you cannot access an area of Breeze (specifically the Tags) from the Breeze App, and you get a message that says: "You cannot browse this page at "(churchsubdomain).breezechms.com" because it is restricted."

This is more than likely due to the parental restrictive permissions set on the iPhone. Because the Breeze App is technically a wrapper of the website, the parental settings can cause tags to be restricted based on tag names.

  • I get it that y'all really love Apple iPhones, but will there ever be an update to the Android app on Google Play?  It seems that the IOS app continually gets updated (since it says it was updated June 1st,) but the Android app hasn't been updated since 2017? A lot has changed since 2017. Can we please get an update soon?

  • @hayjam627 this "new look and feel" was pushed out to both apple and android users. We do not preference or love one over the other. Android will still give you a warning that the app has not been updated since 2017, but the reality is, that is just not true. You can by pass the warning and continue using the app. On the backend we use a "wrapper" for our website for the app. It's not a native app like many others you are accustom to downloading. What this means is that when we pushed this new look out, neither apple or android recognizes it as an official update to the app. You should see when you login to the app on your android that the look and feel match the current Breeze desktop design. I hope this is helpful! Please let us know if you see something different on your app. Again, you will need to just by pass the nice warning android gives you, because it is simply not true :D

  • Thanks so much for the update and clarification about the app. I stopped using the app (but kept it on my phone in hopes of a future update) when it was the older version and just used my phone's Chrome instead. I re-opened the app this morning and it shows the updated format like you said. I like this much better! Thank you again.

  • You are so welcome! To be honest, having Breeze on your phone will be a very similar experience, but without the limitations of the app. Feel free to use either!

  • Is there anyway we can cache my credential on the phone if we set an idle timeout on the roles?
