Linking Accounts from Multiple Churches

This lesson shows you how to link and unlink your accounts when you have Planning Center accounts for multiple churches or organizations.

Why Link Accounts?

Let's say you volunteer as a singer at two churches. In this scenario, there are two primary reasons for linking your accounts:

Reason #1: Fast church switching.

Reason #1: Fast church switching.

When you log into Planning Center Services, you'll no longer be asked which church you would like to log into. You'll simply be taken to the last one you were viewing. From within Planning Center Services, you'll be able to jump back and forth between churches in the upper right.

Reason #2: Combined "My Schedule" view includes all churches

When looking at "My Schedule" you'll be able to see all the upcoming Plans you're currently scheduled for, across all churches. Your availability and scheduling preferences will be shared. No more double booking!

How to Link Accounts:

Unify Passwords

Set passwords for each account to the exact same password, and make sure your first and last name are the same as well.

If you do not have a 'Link these accounts' link, something is different about your accounts and you will need to edit them.

In this case, Scott's name is spelled differently between the accounts (Scott vs Scotty). He will need to log in and change one of them to match the other. Remember: the name, email and password need to be exactly the same in order for the accounts to match.

How to Unlink Accounts:

Click "unlink these accounts"

Click "unlink these accounts"

If you don't want your accounts to be linked anymore, simply click, "unlink these accounts" and you'll be logged out of Planning Center as well.

When you log back in with your username and password, you'll see the option to link those accounts again. If you ignore that & log into one particular account, you won't be able to switch between accounts, and any changes made to your profile will not sync with those other accounts you are a person in.
