Our custom slides are of three types
- those needed for a particular service, but which may never be used again. (custom)
- those specific to our church, and used in most services (local)
- those which come from a central authority, and which will be used in most churches of the same denomination. (liturgy)
I project at a British Methodist church, which uses the Methodist Worship Book, but we have people worshipping with us from a United Methodist background, my parents worshipped at an Anglican church, and I attended a Church of Scotland church when I was younger.
Being able to split off the parts of the database which should be the same, and to easily distinguish them from the other sections would be useful, particularly when setting up OpenLP for a new projection volunteer, as at the moment people get a copy of everything which has been projected.
The custom module would not need much change (I think), mostly a selection of which database is being used, and probably an ability to copy a 'template' piece of liturgy from the main liturgy to the current or custom section. This would be mostly for baptisms and similar where the names of people need to be entered and he/she used as appropriate.
