Setting a high bar
Kommentare: We use Planning Center for online giving, service planning, check-ins, and registrations for events and services. We have had great success using all these apps for managing our church.
Planning Center's suite of apps work together very well, and they integrate into other programs that we utilize, too. They have been flexible with so many of the COVID-related issues over the last year, with great customer service and continued support.
There are some features that I don't think we take full advantage of because they are buried under other useful features, or they are a little less intuitive for some users.

Necessary for worship/service planning, other features could integrate better
Kommentare: We actually like Planning Center a lot. It has its issues, but overall it's nice to be able to integrate every area of our church in one database. I do like that it's a sliding pricing structure and you can choose what you need and what you don't. I wish it were cheaper, but I get it.
The worship planning software (Services) is unmatched as far as I can tell. It pretty much contains everything we would want in a database solution, the Giving portion is fairly easy to use, Groups and Registrations both work pretty well and our congregation doesn't seem to have a lot of trouble with signups through those. Scheduling volunteers is very simple through Services. Their customer support seems to be pretty consistent and helpful.
2 things: 1. The individual modules for Planning Center, though I like that you can select which ones you need and don't need, don't seem to integrate super well with each other. The fact that you need to re-import people from the database portion into the other modules can be annoying, and the navigation among them as a whole doesn't seem to be totally cohesive. 2. (My biggest pet peeve) It is ENTIRELY too easy for people to add themselves as a duplicate. We've had 5-6 profiles with the exact same email and name, and people can just create a new profile over and over again. If this could be solved, I would honestly be a lot happier with Planning Center.
Part of it Works for Us
Kommentare: At this point, it is used in a minimal way, to lay out our order of service and schedule 2 ministry teams out of the 10+ teams that serve at each of our services.
Makes scheduling and organizing our order of service very simple for the administration team. When an item such as teaching changes from 30 minutes to 40 minutes, the modifications are easy to implement without having to recalculate the time of day from one item to the next. When that same item is moved someplace else in the order of service it's a simple drag and drop and all times for the service are automaticallly adjusted.
Not a great tool for our volunteers. The scheduling module is a little difficult to train volunteers to use. They all give it a shot but most revert to using excel spreadsheets. Report templates, unless you are an html programmer, aren't flexible enough to give me the layout I am looking for. We tried to use it to check in our children but the unreliability of connecting and printing name tags caused huge delays, aggravated our parents and frustrated the volunteers. I am advised they have resolved that problem, however, due to their prior experience our children's church isn't willing to give it another chance.

Hi Karen, Thanks for the review! Our support team is able to help you with some parts of coding those reports if you'd like to reach out to them for help, and give them an example of how you would like your report to look. They would also be able to give you some tips for making scheduling volunteers easier in Services. Sorry to hear that hardware issues were keeping your Children's Ministry from using Check-Ins efficiently. If they're willing to give it a second chance in the future, we'll be glad to help troubleshoot those problems up front.
Great for Volunteers and Worship
Kommentare: We have used Planning Center for many years and continue to love the easy of use and volunteer scheduling.
It is easy to schedule and have your volunteers schedule themselves to serve. It has really helped all ministries work much more efficiently. The worship team use and scheduling services has been the overall reason for sticking with Planning Center. They have added different modules through out the years, but their number one asset is "Planning".
Since they started as a planning platform, the giving side of things is not up to par as other platforms. Group is a good feature, but could be more features.
Makes Church Volunteer Scheduling Easy
Kommentare: Planning center is a necessity to the job I do as a Worship Leader. I schedule many people a week for positions in the band or on the tech team and I can’t imagine handling that without planning center. They can see the order of the service and access audio and pdfs they need for each song. Users can blockout days that they will be out which clears up scheduling confusion when planning. I can plan months in advance and let people know when they will be needed and planning center sends out all of the reminder emails each week. If you handle any type of scheduling for a group of volunteers I recommend Planning Center above all else.
Schedule all volunteers needed from the week to assigned positions. Ability to group people by position. Ability to control what level of access each person has. Ability to email all scheduled people or all people in a certain group. Automatically sends reminder emails to scheduled people.
Hard to remember which settings menu has certain features you are looking for. New update has changed the way certain things are done or where they’re found that will take adjusting to.
