The Best Thing Out There Planning center is perfect for our congregation and context. As a worship Pastor, I can say it's just incredibly intuitive and powerful for scheduling virtually every worship serving team on Sunday morning. The interaction volunteers have with the scheduling process has drastically decreased instances of people missing their shifts. The musicians love it because they can rehearse with all of the music. All around solid app!
I like it but needs updates! Overall I like PCO. What I would like to recommend to the app developers is some updates to functionality. Keeping in tradition of church, I have 3 points 1. You can't change a song after you linked it. I have to delete it and add another service item. 2. You can't add files or link youtube videos. 3. You can't order pizza. #3 was to make sure you are listening. To wrap up, I want to challenge you to go out and share the good news with some awesome updates! God is good! Edited... thanks for the response!
PDFs Will Not Download Every time I try to download a PDF, my PDF viewer will not open it due to it being an "Empty File". I have tried many different PDF viewers, and it's the problem with every one.
My phone is virtually unusable as long as the media player is open; even if it isn't playing anything. In addition, the means to kill the media player are the most obscure I've ever seen. You can't actually kill the player from the player screen. You have to back out to the previous screen (the plan screen) and kill it. IOW, there is no way to kill the media player from within the media player, the only way to do it is to go to the "Plan" page. This makes absolutely no sense. In addition, you can actually kill planning center, and the media player is still running. This isn't a big deal except that the only way to kill the resource hogging media player, is to re-launch Planning Center, navigate to the "Plan" page then kill the player. So I gave this app 2 stars because of the asinine way the kill button for the media player is hidden plus the fact that the media player hogs resources and makes my phone very slow.
I've reset my password from my desktop several times and I still cannot log in from the app. Looks like it's browser-based planning for me.
Doesn't work anymore!!! I receive emails with the "Accept" or "Decline" options, but nothing shows up on the Planning Center app when I open it! It shows i have nothing scheduled! If I go to the online version, some things are there, but not everything. I uninstalled and reinstalled and still nothing. PLEASE FIX IT!!!
