Create a New Service Type

Created on:
Updated on:

When you first sign up for Services, you're prompted to create a Service Type. If you need more Service Types later, you can add them and customize them to fit your church.

A Service Type is a container for your plans, teams, and templates. You don't need to create separate Service Types if your same service happens at multiple times; just add multiple times to plans within one Service Type.

Limit Reached?

Some older pricing packages limit the number of Service Types you're allowed to have. Your Organization Administrator can let you know how many you're allowed to create. If you try to create more than the allotted amount, you'll be prompted to upgrade your application.

From the Plans tab, hover over Service Type and choose Create a new service type.

Plans page

Only Administrators have the option to add new Service Types and Folders.

Name your Service Type according to the plans you'll add to that Service Type then choose from some of the Default Teams, consisting of the most frequently used teams and positions.

choose default teams

If you add any of the Default Teams, you can edit or delete any that aren't exactly what you need. If none of these teams are what you need, create your own teams with the positions that match your church.

Select Accept to add the Service Type to your account and be taken to the first plan, where you can add the first time.

select times

Now that you've created the Service Type and added your first plan, you can edit the settings, add more information to your Plan, or delete a Service Type.

Once you add multiple Service Types, you can rearrange their order on the Plans page from their folder.
