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.

Watch the video to see how easy it is to report to CCLI or follow the steps below to enable reporting on your account.

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.

Access CCLI

Enter your CCLI Number, select Enabled in the Reporting section, and then click Submit to enable the integration.

Record Song Usage

When you schedule a song to a plan, you'll see the CCLI Reporting box at the bottom of the item.

Enter the number of Digital, Print, Recording, and Translation activity in every plan for every song, according to their Reporting Categories, so that you will have an accurate report to submit to CCLI.

Now when scheduling a song to a plan, you will see this yellow box

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.

Access CCLI

Make sure that CCLI Copy Activity is selected.

To generate the report:

  • From the dropdown, select the Service Types that you want to include in the report
  • Set the dates for the reporting period.
  • Click Generate Report.
Enter the dates and service types you wish to see.

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.
