The Services Settings page holds the default settings for all Service Types.

Default People permissions are set from the People page.

To access Services Settings, an Organization Administrator can click the gear in the upper right corner of a Service Type page, and then click Services Settings.

Access Services Site Settings

If you do not see the settings icon next to your church, you are not an Organization Administrator. Only Organization Administrators have access to the Services Settings Page, which affects all users of Planning Center Services. You can be a regular Administrator and not an Organization Administrator.

Calendar, Files, and Lyrics and Chords

Use the dropdown menus to update settings for the calendar and user permissions.

  1. Set the day that the Master Calendar starts on.
  2. Allow an audio file to be downloaded by default. If this is set to False, audio files can be streamed, but only people with permissions set in the next field can download them.
  3. Set the user permission for people who can download files. People with this permission can change an individual song setting to allow it to be downloaded, even if the default is only streaming.
  4. Set how your lyrics and chord PDFs print by choosing your defaults. You can also override these defaults in the format setting on the Chord Editor.

Attachment Types

Some team members don't need to access all the files for a song. Attachment Types are used to hide files for specific users, which is especially useful when you have lots of files for each song and don't want your users to have to search for the one file they need.

Learn how to use Attachment Types before you add new Attachment Types or enable Service Types to have them.
