CCLI Reporting

Created on:
Updated on:

Planning Center cannot report to CCLI for you automatically, but if your account administrator enables CCLI Reporting for your account, you will be able to manually log your song usage throughout the year. When your reporting period comes around, you can run the CCLI Report to get the information that you need to submit to CCLI.


Editors and above can view the integration settings, record song usage, and run reports, but only Organization Administrators can enable the CCLI integration.

Enable CCLI Reporting

To enable CCLI reporting, click the gear in the upper right corner of the Songs page, and then click CCLI Settings.

Record Song Usage

Report song usage in each plan when you reproduce (ie. project, type out, copy and paste) the words of a song for a worship service.

  3. Tally the occurrence for each type of usage, and then press Enter.

Generate a CCLI Report

When it's time to submit the report to CCLI, go to the Songs page, click the reports icon, and select CCLI Copy Activity.

  • Click Generate Report.

Recorded CCLI data is only saved for two years. Attempting to run a report for a date greater than two years in the past will reset the From date field.
