Adding an Image

Last Updated: Jul 22, 2019 @ 8:54 am

Increase engagement in your PocketPlatform app by adding images to your Opportunities, Groups, and Events in MinistryPlatform! Plus, most dashboard recipes require Opportunities and Events to have a default image set in order to display them on the dashboard, so having an image attached is an all-around good thing to do.

Please be aware that this article assumes that you have an Opportunity, Event or Group created already. For more information on creating these resources, please visit the MinistryPlatform Knowledgebase: Opportunities, Groups, Events.

Image Best Practices

While PocketPlatform will display a wide variety of image sizes and formats without issue, you can foster a more robust and engaging environment for your users with some consideration in how you format your images.  PocketPlatform was designed with the understanding that the majority of church graphics are created to be used on a standard 16:9 ratio screen. Below, you will find examples of different images with text and how they display on the opportunities screen.
