Adding Songs to Sidekick via SongSelect

By |2024-01-02T09:54:05-08:00January 3rd, 2024|Sidekick Hero Blog|0 Comments

One of the things I have always dreaded about making the slides for youth group each week was typing in the lyrics for songs. Not only did I not enjoy typing out every word of a song, but without fail, I always ended up with at least one typo (even though I double and triple-checked!).

Thankfully, those worries are now a thing of the past, thanks to CCLI SongSelect integration in Sidekick! Now, with just a search and a few clicks, I can add the lyrics for any of CCLI’s 100,000+ songs to my presentation!

Connecting your Sidekick account to your CCLI SongSelect account is super simple! To find out how, just watch the video below, or scroll down to see step-by-step instructions.

Adding a Song to Your Sidekick Presentation

It’s really that easy! Thanks to Sidekick, you’ll save yourself countless hours of typing. Plus, you’ll keep all of those accidental typos from causing a distraction during your worship services (wait… other people do make typos, right? Please tell me that it’s not just me?!? 😄).

How Coleader & Sidekick Work Together

By |2023-12-27T14:42:54-08:00December 27th, 2023|Sidekick Hero Blog|2 Comments

I remember when Coleader first launched almost a year ago. I was immediately blown away by a few features that I considered game-changing at the time:

  • Building a service from scratch (seriously, I still can’t believe how easy this is),
  • Adding call-outs for important notes that I needed our volunteers to see,
  • Moving and reorganizing service elements without any hassle,
  • Choosing which details of the service I wanted to include when I emailed a copy of the service to our small group leaders ahead of time.

In my mind, these features alone made Coleader the obvious choice when it came to planning and building our worship services. But then, this past summer, Coleader launched the Year 1 Roadmap, which included even more incredible features:

  • An annual curriculum that was written, edited, and programmed by youth ministry legends Doug Fields & Josh Griffin and a team of incredibly talented youth ministry veterans,
  • Student Events, Parent Events, and Volunteer Events that somehow manage to think of everything you could possibly need to host a memorable event (I’m looking at you, NEON NIGHT!!),
  • Magic Swap for those moments when the Roadmap Series just doesn’t quite fit the context.

Honestly, at this point, I didn’t think I needed anything else. Coleader was everything I could have hoped for and more.

But then everything changed again with one little button…

Ok, admittedly, the image above isn’t technically “little,” but that’s just because I wanted to make sure everyone understands how incredibly powerful this button is… but first, I want to show you how to find it.

First, you’ll need to be a Coleader Premium or Coleader Premium+ Subscriber. Basically, these subscriptions get you access to a lot of really great features:

  • Coleader Premium:
    • 260 Credits (the equivalent of 26 weeks of programming)
    • 1 Year of Access to Sidekick Essential (includes 5 phone connections for Live Voting)
  • Coleader Premium+:
    • 520 Credits (the equivalent of 52 weeks of programming)
    • 1 Year of Access to Sidekick+Phones (includes 50 phone connections for Live Voting)

Second, once you’re a Coleader Premium or Coleader Premium+ Subscriber, you’ll just need to select a series from the Coleader Year 1 Roadmap and copy it to your account.

And third, open your newly copied series, and then open any session within that series (in the image below, I selected Session 1 from the HABITS Series that released December 1st, 2023). When you do this, you’ll notice a new button that appears that says “Open in Sidekick.”

(click image to enlarge)

All you have to do is click the “Open in Sidekick” button, and then choose whether or not you want to automatically import the lyrics to the selected songs…

(click image to enlarge)

And before you know it, you’ll be looking at a fully-loaded Sidekick presentation containing EVERYTHING included in your Coleader session! You’ll find countdowns, games, song lyrics, the bumper video, the lesson slides, and even the small group discussion questions! It’s all there, just waiting for you to hit the “present” button!

(click image to enlarge)

…and that’s it!

I know. It feels like there should be more steps or like it should be more complicated, but it just isn’t. Sidekick integration into the Coleader Premium and Coleader Premium+ Subscriptions is just another reason why I’m 100% convinced that Sidekick will be an absolute GAME-CHANGER for you and your ministry.

…Plus, you didn’t hear it from me, but there are a few REALLY BIG Sidekick updates coming out within the next week or so. 🙂 So stay tuned!

Adding Speaker Notes In Sidekick

By |2023-12-19T15:00:10-08:00December 20th, 2023|Sidekick Hero Blog|0 Comments

Every youth worker has been there. You just finished teaching, your students start to leave, and you realize… I DIDN’T EVEN SAY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING!! Or maybe you’re telling stories from 1 & 2 Kings, and you’ve been practicing all week to make sure you don’t get Elijah and Elisha mixed up… but then, the moment you open your mouth, you keep saying one when you mean the other, and somehow you’ve even added a third pronunciation into the mix!

Thankfully,   Sidekick includes a super-useful feature called Speaker Notes that will make experiences like these a thing of the past.

Adding Speaker Notes to a   Sidekick presentation is super simple! To find out how, just watch the video below, or scroll down to see step-by-step instructions.

Adding Speaker Notes to Your Slides

Viewing Speaker Notes During Your Presentation

It’s really that easy! Thanks to  Sidekick, you’ll never have to worry about forgetting to tell that one story, or losing your place in the middle of a message ever again!

Pro Tip:

You can actually add Speaker Notes to ANY SLIDE in a  Sidekick presentation. That means you can add all those important details about Camp to the Speaker Notes for your Camp Announcement Slide. That way, you’ll never forget the registration deadline ever again!

Or, if you have students or volunteers who host your announcements and game, you can add Speaker Notes (like “Don’t forget to smile and introduce yourselves!”) for them as well!

 Sidekick to the rescue!

Creating a Live Poll with Image-Based Questions

By |2023-12-19T15:04:21-08:00December 18th, 2023|Sidekick Hero Blog|0 Comments

Creating and running a   Sidekick presentation with a Live Poll that uses Image-Based Questions is super simple! Just watch the video below, or scroll down to see step-by-step instructions.

Creating a Live Poll with an Image-Based Question

Presenting a Live Poll with an Image-Based Question

It’s really that easy! And, of course, you can add multiple Live Polls with Image-Based Questions to any presentation in Sidekick. And, what’s even cooler is that because the QR Code is unique to your entire presentation, you don’t have to show the QR code before each question. Just show it once at the beginning, and you should be good to go!

Pro Tip:

Sure, adding Image-Based Questions to a Live Poll is a pretty simple process, but trust me, your students can do this faster than you 🙂

Don’t get me wrong. You could probably make 5 image-based polls in about 15 minutes, but a student could probably do it in 5 minutes, tops. Plus, if they’re building the presentation, they’ll have a sense of ownership that they wouldn’t have if you made it yourself.

Live Voting: Would You Rather

By |2023-12-12T19:48:46-08:00December 11th, 2023|Sidekick, Sidekick Hero Blog|0 Comments

Live Voting is one of my absolute favorite new features in Sidekick. Without a doubt, it allows students to engage during a service like never before!

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be showing you some really cool ways that you can use Live Voting in your services, and I can’t think of a better way than one of my favorite ways to start a service: WOULD YOU RATHER.

If you’re curious how this might work, below are 12 different Would You Rather questions that our team came up to get you started. Just click on an image to see the two options that students would be choosing between…

On its own, Would You Rather is a fairly simple concept. Students are given two options, and they must make a choice between the two. One of the reasons Would You Rather is so much fun is that sometimes the options are related, and sometimes they aren’t even in the same ballpark. The other reason (and this is my favorite) is that often you’ll see friends who thought they agreed about something suddenly find themselves on VERY different sides of the issue.

All in all, Would You Rather is an incredible way to help students lower their guard a little bit so that they are more willing to engage with the service that’s about to happen. And in my opinion, Sidekick Live Voting takes that to a completely new level! Suddenly, students will be able to see the results of everyone in the the room’s choices in REAL TIME!

While we’d always encourage you to come up with some of your own that your students will resonate with, we also created this handy text document with all twelve of our questions so you can copy and paste them into your own Sidekick Live Polls:

What Are Connections & How Do I Get More?

By |2024-04-10T11:16:49-07:00December 7th, 2023|Sidekick Hero Blog|0 Comments

One of the biggest questions we’ve gotten since launching Sidekick, is:

What Are ‘Connections’ & How Do I Get More?

So we’ve written this handy guide to help you understand connections and how the number of connections are related to your DYM Gold or DYM Gold+ Membership:

Understanding Sidekick ‘Connections’

The most basic explanation is that “connections” are the number of phones/tablets/devices that are able to connect and participate in interactive elements (like Live Voting) at the same time. Here are a few helpful scenarios to show how we calculate the number of connections in different situations:

Scenario 1: If you are presenting to a room of 50 people, and all 50 decide to scan the QR code to vote in a Live Poll, you are using 50 connections.

Scenario 2: If you are presenting to a room of 100 people, and 50 decide to scan the QR code to vote in a Live Poll, you are using 50 connections.

Scenario 3: (However unlikely) If you are presenting to a room of 50 people, and all 50 decide to scan the QR code on their phones AND on their tablets (effectively letting each person connect twice) to vote in a Live Poll, you are using 100 connections.

This means that if you are planning on using the live voting element during your presentation, you’ll need to make sure that you have enough connections available for each person to scan the QR code that is presented on the screen.

Since launching, our users have asked a lot of really good questions about connections, so we wanted to take a moment to answer them here for everyone:

Nope! ’50 connections’ refers to the first 50 devices that scan the QR code shown on the screen during an interactive element such as Live Voting. As soon as your presentation ends, all connections are reset, and you are able to connect a completely different set of 50 devices. The same is true for our 50, 100, 250, and 500-device plans.

The number of connections in your plan covers the number of phones/devices that are able to connect and participate in interactive elements (like Live Voting) at the same time. Here are two scenarios that may help make this clearer:

Scenario 1: If you have multiple groups who are using Sidekick at the same time (like youth group and kids ministry both meeting at 7pm on Wednesdays), this would mean that the number of connections is shared between those two groups. If your plan includes 50 connections, but you have 40 participants in each group (totaling 80 participants trying to connect at the same time), only the first 50 participants will be able to connect. In this scenario, we would suggest increasing your membership to include the

Scenario 2: However, if you have multiple groups who are using Sidekick, but they meet at different times (for example, your youth group meets on Wednesdays at 7pm, but your kids ministry meets on Sundays at 11am), you will only need enough connections to cover each group individually. For example, if your youth group and kids ministry each have 40 participants, you will only need a plan with 50 participants, since the two groups are not trying to connect at the same time.

That’s so exciting! In order to increase the number of connections on your account, you will need to upgrade your account to the next DYM Gold+ membership tier. The best way to do this is to contact our support team at [email protected] so they can pro-rate your current plan so that you’re not paying more than you need to (plus they’re super-nice people who are always eager to help!).

If you need more connections than your current membership allows for a one-time event, please reach out to [email protected]. Our support team is made up exclusively of veteran youth workers who totally get what it’s like to lead from the trenches. Plus, they’re really nice people, so when in need, reaching out is always a good idea.

Understanding DYM Memberships

Whether you are considering purchasing a DYM Gold or DYM Gold+ membership for the first time or you’re thinking about upgrading in order to have more connections on your plan, below, you’ll find a comparison of all of our DYM Gold & DYM Gold+ memberships, including cost and how many connections come with each membership tier:
