"Our Virtual Assistant"

Kommentare: Our team has come to a place of embracing this product and using it well for planning worship events. Early on, it was a bit of a learning curve. Having been use to software having phone support with programs. Over all, this product has become a virtual part of our team. We like the ability to update it on the fly, even in the middle of an event. We have also used the "groups" portion of the app, but not a lot. Our next adventure with this product is to be implementing the "check-in" portion of the app. The PlanningCenter portion is great for setting up teams to serve and for bringing our sheet music library into the 'plan.'

Vorteile: This app/program has become a great aid in planning worship services and events for our Sunday Services and other events. It helps us get all of our information into one spot. Secondly, in planning our worship services and other events, it has become a template that leads us to our 'finished product,' a well planned and detailed event.

Nachteile: All support is done through tutorials and through email contacts. There is no phone support, at least that I have found.

Hey Timothy, thanks so much for your feedback and sharing how the software helps your Team get to the finished product for your events.

As for phone support, you are able to schedule a call via the (?) on the top right of the app you have questions in. While email support is the fastest most efficient way to receive support. You can still schedule a call via the (?) via the "open a ticket" modal.

Hope you have a blessed one!

"Church Done Right!"

Kommentare: Planning Center has streamlined our ministry operations and has allowed us the freedom to operate in a way that helps grow smaller churches into larger ones without skipping a beat.

Vorteile: Planning Center Online (PCO) has been amazing for our church over these last several years. PCO Services gives us what we need to schedule and plan our Sunday services without any trouble. We love the templates that PCO allows us to set up in order to duplicate a service style easily. Easter and Christmas every year are a breeze with PCO Services. We also use PCO Giving, Check-In, People, and Groups as our foundation of running the behind the scenes of our ministry. The user interface (UI) of each module is similar and easy to use, understand, and follow. I tell pastors about PCO all the time. Especially the People account, which is Free!

Nachteile: I do wish that PCO would create an app for each of its modules, such as groups. It would be a little easier for a Small Group Leader to access all that PCO Groups has to offer without having to open a computer. Also, the cost of each module seems to be adding up quickly. A "small church" with a tight budget may be put off by the cost. However, I can say that it is worth every penny if that church is a planning church.

"High quality Church Management Software with a few areas for growth"

Kommentare: Overall, Planning Center is a fantastic platform that offers a number of robust features and solutions for most of your church management needs! With the numerous optional aspects of PC such as services (service/event management), groups (small group management), people (database management), check-ins (attendance management) & giving, this platform is essentially a one-stop shop for most of your church management needs!

Vorteile: Planning Center is an extremely useful & powerful tool that really helps simplify & improve my everyday workflow; one that is clearly committed to excellence and consistently striving to improve their platform. Planning Center creates an easy-to-use platform for a number of different needs - including planning services, organizing teams, managing a database of people, kids check-ins, and a simple group organizational platform; all of which helps create a simple, cohesive, one-stop-shop for church management. All in all, there are very few things a church would need to do that planning center could not help them accomplish (see below); and with the Planning Center team constantly accepting feedback & looking for ways to improve the platform; this is an excellent piece of software that every church should consider getting!

Nachteile: While Planning Center offers a robust set of powerful features, it has a steep learning curve that some users may find difficult. While fairly intuitive, it carries so many different features; some of which don't appear to have any documentation or explanation, that it can be overwhelming for a first time user or someone who struggles with technology. That being said, once it is setup properly the majority of these problems go away. Planning Center also offers an intriguing Event Management platform called "Planning Center Registrations" - which is essentially a less-intuitive and much more complicated version of Eventbrite. While the Registrations platform ties in with the rest of the Planning Center platform; we have found it to be extremely difficult to setup properly; with a very confusing event configuration UI. Potentially, this is a part of the platform that I simply need to learn; but the fact that a platform like Eventbrite offers a similarly priced & very simple interface makes me less likely to ever use Registrations. My only other complaints about this software is the fact that Planning Center necessarily collects so much personal data about people; yet it does not offer simple admin tools such as 2FA or password guidelines for upper-level account editors & admins. This lack of optional security settings is concerning, as it creates a risk for low-quality passwords that could simplify data leaks from the platform.

"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.

Vorteile: 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.

Nachteile: 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.

"Exactly what we needed to take our organization to the next level"

Kommentare: Planning Center has been a dream for our church. Before we made the move we had a different system for everything and none of them talked to each other in any way. We were scheduling 200+ volunteers 8 weeks out in an Excel spreadsheet. Our previous database software did almost nothing useful and we avoided even using it. Now with Planning Center we're more organized, automated, and streamlined than ever. I know we're not yet using it to it's full potential, there's so much more we can do still and we're excited to see how Planning Center will continue to change, grow, and get better.

Vorteile: Planning Center apps more than make up for their cost by the time, headache, and agony they save us. They are well designed and regularly adding new features. Planning Center listens to user feedback and is very friendly. They want to see churches empowered and so they listen to users for direction as they're implementing new features. Their help docs are great. The apps themselves are powerful. They may not always do what you want in the way you want it, but there's always a way to get it done. The integrations – Lists, Automations, Workflows, Forms – transform People from a database app into a powerhouse of tracking and automation.

Nachteile: Some more complicated tasks are not alway simple for PC novices to figure out; they do require some problem solving and hoop-jumping at times but it's still better than going without. Better training docs for getting users or volunteers up to speed for the first time are currently missing. I find myself having to create these based on existing help docs and my own material.
