First of all, let's assume we need to add a special Christmas Eve service. When Planning Center adds new plans, it copies all the times from the last plan in the list. If we add our Christmas Eve plan to the end of the list, then when we are ready to make a new one, it will copy the  times from Christmas Eve instead of our regular service. So to prevent that, we will make 2 new plans. The first one is the next "regular" service AFTER Christmas Eve, and the second one is the Christmas Eve plan.

If you already have your next regular plan, you can skip this step.

Now add your Special plan

Now add your Special plan

From your new plan, click the plus icon next to the main dates to add a new plan

Click "Change the dates for this new plan"

Click "Change the dates for this new plan"

This will allow you to set the master service date before the plan is made so that all other times are created relative to the master service date.

Enter the plan date for the special plan

Enter the plan date for the special plan

Type the date or click the calendar icon to choose a date. Once your date has been chosen, you will see any other times reflect this change.

When you are done, click accept.

Modify any of your times

Modify any of your times

You are taken into your new Christmas Eve plan that is not the last plan in the list since we've already created the plan after this one. Modify any of your times by clicking to edit them, or by adding new times.

Back on the main plans page, you can see your Christmas Eve plan has been inserted in the right place. Now when you make new plans, it will copy all of your regular times from the December 28 plan.
