Set Up Order of Service
Create your order of service, complete with the current series and informationa about each element of the service. Follow the steps to set up your full order of service to look something like this:
Add the Series Title & Artwork
At the top of the plan, tap/click to enter the title of the series as well as the title of this week's plan.
Once you type enter, the titles are saved.
If you have art that goes with the series, select Add Art to upload it to the plan. When other plans add this series as a title, the artwork will carry over as well.
Select Accept to add the art to the series.
When you add the series to a new plan, the artwork is automatically populated for the new series.
Other plans with the same series will show the artwork on the main Plans page, so you can see at-a-glance which series the plans are in.
Add Elements to the Plan
Select add an item to create your first element of your plan.
Type i to use the keyboard shortcut to add an item.
Enter the information about the item you're adding to the plan.
- Type the title of the element that's happening in the service, enter the number of minutes and seconds this item will take, then choose if it's going to take place During Service or Pre/Post Service.
Items that are pre or post service will not be included in your total service length.
- Enter a line or a sentence explaining the element. If you have longer, more detailed information, or want to change fonts, colors, text-size, or formatting, select edit.
- Add any specific notes to the categories.
- If you're using a specific song or media during this element, select link a song or link media, which will take you to the song or media sections to choose.
Select Accept when you've entered all the information to the item.
If you want to separate your items, use the convert to header feature, which just shows a new section of service.
Add Attachments to Items
Once you've added many items, add attachments to them in the plan for your people to access.
Hover over the gray box and select add an attachment.
If a gray box has a number in it, attachments are already added to that item. To add more attachments to a song or media item, go to the song or media.
Once the items are added, you can move them around in the plan by selecting and dragging them.
Once items are in the place you want them to be, view the times to ensure service stays on schedule.
View the item's length or the actual time the item should occur by selecting the arrow.
If you have two Service Times, choose which items will occur in which service by clicking/tapping the time in the appropriate column to select or deselect it.
The times around it will automatically adjust based on the removed item.
Hover over the empty space and tap/click to add the item back to that service time.
Now that the Order of Service is set, schedule your people to the plan.
