Custom Reports

Created on:
Updated on:

We provide common reports, but if you want different data or layouts, you'll need to create a Custom Report. Although it's better for a person fluent in HTML, CSS, or basic programing knowledge to create the report, we have listed some helps for you to use. The links to the Templates Help as well as the References will help get you started.

Check out this video for more information or follow the steps below.

Click edit custom reports from any print page or go to services.planningcenteronline.com/reports.

Only Administrators can edit custom reports.

There are several different reports that you can create:

At the top of this report, you can see that it will not print Plan Notes because it is set to false. If you'd like to print Plan Notes, just change false to true.

Set Categories to Print

Set Categories to Print

By default, when you set a section to print, it will print all of that section, like people. If you don't want to print all people, or you want to print all people but in a different order, then set assign all_categories to false.

Indicate below which categories you want to print in the correct order. If all_categories is set to true, then your category names and order in the report will be ignored.

Enter your categories names EXACTLY like they are titled in your plans including capitalization and spacing. If your category names aren't exact, they won't print.

Save your changes

Select Save Changes at the bottom of the window to save your report.
