Share Your Plan

Created on:
Updated on:

You can allow someone who does not have a login to your Planning Center account to access a public view of the plans you've created and generate special "Permalinks" that will take you to a specific plan based on a date.

Select the information you'd like to show on the plan from the Public View tab of the Service Type Settings.

Once you've made your selections, Accept, and go into a plan to enable public access.

Click the dropdown and check the box to Enable Public View.

1. View the Public Plan Page

Click View to view the public plan page.

Notice

Public plan pages can be viewed by anyone, even if they don't have a Planning Center login.

If any of your songs have public attachments, anyone viewing this page will be able to click on the button below your songs to be taken to those sites to listen to those song attachments.

Once you are on a public plan, you can copy the URL and share the link, so others can access that specific public plan, or, if you don't want to open the public plan page every time you want to share the link, use the Permalink.

2. Share on Twitter or Facebook

When you choose the Twitter icon, a box with a pre-composed tweet of all the songs from your plan opens, as well as a hashtag, and a shortened URL to the Public Plan Page.

Edit the tweet to your language then log in and tweet.

Similar information is pre-loaded for Facebook.

Any songs are listed in the text of the link. When people click the link, they'll be taken to the public plan page.

  1. Select where this worship set is posted: your own Timeline, a group, a friend's page, or if you manage your church's Facebook page, you can post it there.

  2. Add your own comments about the post if you'd like.

Once you're done, post it to Facebook!

Notice

Planning Center will never post anything to your twitter automatically. You will have to log in and tweet in order for the tweet to be shared. We value you and your church's privacy, and we have our own Twitter and Facebook pages that we post all of our updates or information to. We won't use yours for that.

3. Link to Specific Public Plan Pages

Permalinks take you to a different plan based on a specific date, like a link on your church's website that always takes people to last week's public plan.

  1. Choose one of the following type of links:

    • Plan links to a plan that requires a person to log in and have permission to view the plan.

    • Public View links to a plan that can be viewed by anyone with the link as long as public view is enabled.

    • Services Live links to Services LIVE for people with permission to view the plan.

  2. Choose the time period before or after the current date.

    • If you choose Public View before today, you can put the link on your church website and name it Last Week's Service. That link will take people to the closest public plan before the current day, so they can view any song links you've made available.

    • Choose Services Live after today for the computer that runs Services LIVE and either bookmark it or set it as the home page for the person running the computer to easily access it.

When you have the link set up, click Copy link, and then paste that link on another site or make it a bookmark for quick use.
