Why did FORMED change in the Fall of 2019?
We have been hard at work these past few months listening to you, your parishioners, and all of our customers and we are excited to announce the new and improved FORMED.
In response to what you asked for, the original FORMED that you know and love now has improved performance, an enhanced search tool, new features, and new ways for our users to watch our programming, listen to audio or read e-books on their connected TVs and devices.
Watching great Catholic content at your parish just got a whole lot easier. In addition to browser, iOS, Android and TVOS, we now offer Roku, and many more avenues for you and your parishioners to engage with our content.
Offline playback, My List creation and the ability to resume watching where you left off are all features requested by our users that are now on the platform.
Additionally, an improved search function will help you better discover the content you are looking for, making it easier to find our movies, programs, e-books and audio.
Lastly, our newly designed user interface, mirroring some of the best-of-breed On-Demand solutions in the market, will make navigating the experience even more enjoyable.
Do my parishioners still need to use our parish code or custom registration URL?
Registering has become a lot easier and parish codes and custom registration urls are no longer needed for your parishioners to register for FORMED through your parish! Now, parishioners simply need to go to formed.org/signup and find your parish to register.
Passwords are difficult and insecure. Which is why many technology companies are moving toward passwordless authentication, relying on the security of technology giants like Google, Facebook and Amazon. In short, passwords are being phased out online. We debated doing this ourselves, and in doing our research, we found that the number one reason for the majority of our support calls was lost passwords. Additionally we wanted to provide the most secure solution to our users. The decision became clear. We too would move away from passwords. Going forward, your emails will still work. You will just be authenticated through your email, rather than directly on the site. Once logged in, you will not need to re-register. Going forward, as long as you don’t log out or clear your cookies, you will remain logged in.
I can’t find my Dashboard. Where is it?
This is great, but is my FORMED subscription going to cost more now?
The best part about all these new improvements to FORMED is that they’re available to you at no additional cost!
In the past, the FORMED site has occasionally had technical issues, will this be addressed?
