The Planning Center app is the best way to access your Planning Center Online account on your iOS device. Planning Center Services is an online scheduling and worship planning application to keep your staff and volunteers connected. With our native app, you get an optimized Planning Center experience wherever you are. Manage your schedule, accept or decline scheduling requests, blockout dates, upload your user picture, and if you are a musician, use the media player or attachments section to access music for rehearsals.
If you are responsible for scheduling volunteers or planning services, the app has features just for you! Add users to your schedule, check for conflicts, and email them at any time. Add items, songs, media or headers to your order of service and drag and drop them to reorder. Plus, the plan page and your schedule update in real time even without having to refresh!
What's New in Version 2.10.5
Last release we "fixed" a bug causing "Could not load resource" to pop up repeatedly, but unfortunately we only fixed some instances. Now we think we've fixed them all.
Isn't it ironic that we're repeating a message saying we fixed a message that itself was repeating too much? Don't ya think?
Serving the Church's Needs
This app is a tremendous help for on the fly scheduling and adjustments to Planning Center Online Services when not at a computer. The interface has a good amount of features but isn't to complicated. It can be a little difficult to explain to new users on your team but overall it serves your teams needs to stay connected to what's happening in your services.
If I can add a suggestion it would be to make it a little easier to access plan files. Also I find that when I hit repeat on a media file or song file in the media player if I navigate away from the app it plays nicely in the background. However if I reopen the app to check a service plan or item, the player stops the repeat function and so I have to navigate back to the previous place that the original media file was in order to play it again and turn the repeat function back on. It gets a little frustrating at times.
I use an iPhone 6s which has a larger screen. Maybe you could make an app similar to Music Stand (simple form of PCO) for iPhones for when a team member only wants to review a services music and chord charts. Just a suggestion.
Again, overall this app will serve as an incredible resource for you and your team in connection with Planning Center Online Services.
Better push notifications please
It would be beneficial if I had the option for this app to send me push notifications when media files are added (Or any general change is made to the service after the initial posting). That way I know when my church uploads music for me to listen to without having to always come back into the app and check.
For example, a song, order of service, or file can be swapped out or updated and I wouldn't know unless I made a habit of coming back into the app and checking myself. Push notifications would remove that hassle.
Really Great App!!!! (Easter Egg)
First: I love this app. I'm the production/worship director at my church and this app makes it SUPER easy to plan a worship service and assign roles right from my phone.
Second: If you're ever bored and need to pass time, go ahead and hit the log out button from the menu. When the prompt appears to ask if you want to log out, tap and hold anywhere and move your finger while holding. Easily passes 2-3 minutes depending on how bored you are 😬👍🏽.
