The MSP Web Terminal: An Improved Mobile Experience

Notice a difference when checking your schedules from your mobile device? Read on to learn more about the new Ministry Scheduler Pro Web Terminal mobile experience changes and how you stand to benefit!

The new and the old

The Web Terminal could always be reached from mobile devices, but the interface was not designed specifically for mobile phones. With mobile device use consistently on the rise, we we decided to change that.

First, we made the text larger. No more squinting to read important information.

Next, we integrated buttons in place of links. Buttons make it easier and faster to navigate the Web Terminal, saving you time and frustration.

Lastly, the Web Terminal layout looks and feels more like an app than a website, making it easier to scroll up or down to find information on the page.

Now volunteers and Ministry Leaders can enjoy a great mobile experience regardless of whether they choose to download the app or just view the Web Terminal from their mobile browser.
