Deputation Scheduling Site FAQ

Deputation Scheduling FAQ

Key: relevant to Requesters (NMI people), relevant to Speakers (missionaries), both

  • I have a Naz ID, but I cannot log in, why?
    • Your account needs to be activated to work with the scheduling site. Email scheduling@nazarene.org to for login assistance.
  • I need help logging in with my NOA account information, who should I email?
  • How frequently should I be logging in to the scheduling site?
    • When you get requests from churches/districts outside of the site and need to add it to your schedule.
    • Every other day/daily if you are in discussion with a church.
    • Once you have submitted an event, the missionaries will be notified. Once they reply to your request you will receive an email.
  • Why is the “Add an Event” button grayed out?
    • This happens when a missionary does not have scheduled home assignment dates.
  • Why is the “Show Schedule” button grayed out?
    • This happens when no events have been accepted in the scheduling site.
  • I am adding an event. Is there a way for me to change the requester? I want to make sure the church hosting the missionaries gets the emails about the event.
    • Yes! Beneath the Requestor field is a checkbox that, when un-checked, allows you to enter a host name and email. The email entered in that field will receive a confirmation email, a document called “How to Be a Great Missionary Host”, and a survey a few days after the conclusion of the event.
  • What if I do not have the church's/district's email address to enter into the Host field?
    • Typically, you can find an email for a church online with a quick Google search.
  • How do I edit/delete an event before it is accepted?
    • Go to your inbox and click on “Sent Events”.
    • Find the event you need to edit and click on it – it should say “requested” instead of “accepted”.
    • Once you are on the page with the event details, go to the left side of the page and click on the edit/delete button.
  • Can I edit/delete an event after it has been accepted?
    • If you need to adjust something on your schedule, email scheduling@nazarene.org and they can make the correction for you.
  • I have no idea which speaker to invite. How can I find a speaker for a specific date?
    • There is a yellow button in the upper left-hand corner that says, “Speaking Opportunities”. You can add an event there, which allows Global missionaries to see the request and contact you if it will work in their schedule. They can then reach out to you.
  • Do I have to use the scheduling site?
    • Short answer: yes.
    • Long answer: since we are in a time of transition and everyone is at different stages of scheduling their Home Assignments, we understand that it will take some time to get fully integrated into the site. However, the end goal is to have everyone using the site for all deputation scheduling.
    • We would like to be able to run different reports out of the site like:
      • Which districts are inviting missionaries?
      • Which churches have had missionaries?
    • This will also help NMI president’s resource missionaries well by finding missionaries that will be close in proximity to them. In turn, this will help Global Missions connect missionaries with churches.
