I tried to update a contact in our churches Oak Grove News which is through ICON. It said I needed to click on Web Services, App Market, etc. When I did this it would not give me access.
Access permissions are set up by the church’s administrator of your Icon account. In the case that a screen says you do not have access, you will have to contact the administrator of your account and ask them to grant you access to that screen.
