Changing from one software platform to another can be tricky. Some can be surprisingly easy, while others make us go to our knees in prayer.
Transitioning your presentation software presents its own set of unique challenges, but with a little bit of preparation you can minimize issues and eliminate some potential headaches.
Here are four steps to help you make a more seamless transition from PowerPoint to your preferred church presentation software.
1. Don’t Rush It
While transitioning to a new presentation platform can be made to happen quickly, for the sake of everyone involved, please don’t rush the process. Try to give yourself and your team some time to adjust. Set some time aside and familiarize yourself with the following:
- Customizable software interface
- Creating service schedules
- Downloading songs from CCLI SongSelect
- Downloading media into your media library
- Set up/install the Bible translations you need
- Logo, Black and Clear buttons (my personal favorite)
- Nursery and Message Alerts
The more comfortable you get with the software, the smoother this transition will be.
Remember, like EasyWorship, most church presentation software options include the ability to import PowerPoint presentations into the software. Don’t be afraid to take advantage of that. In fact, do take advantage of it, while you learn everything your new software can do. This is about making sure that you run the software and not the other way around.
