Plans: An Overview

Updated on:

A plan is an individual service flow that is usually created on a weekly basis. You can manage everything happening in the plan right from the app!

View Plans

Everyone can access plans from My Schedule. Tap the date for the plan that you want to view.


From My Schedule, you will only be able to open plans that you are scheduled for, even if you have the schedules of household members showing on your My Schedule page. Plans for your household members will be grayed out.

If you have Viewer permissions and above, you can also access a specific plan that is not on your schedule from the Plans tab by navigating through the folders.

From a plan, you can use the share button at the top of the plan to open the plan in Music Stand, Headcounts, or your device's default mobile web browser.


You must have the appropriate subscription and the app installed on your device to access the other Planning Center apps.

Add Plans

You can add a plan to any service type you are an editor or administrator for by tapping the plus sign in the lower right. 



Depending on your permissions, you can do any of the following things from a Plan page:

  • View and manage all of the things happening in your plan's Order of Service.

  • Manage your scheduled team members by importing templates, adding individual people, and setting up needed positions.

  • View your assigned plan times, or add, edit, or delete plan times.

  • Add plan notes in any category. Categories themselves can only be edited in the Services web app.

  • View all file attachments for your plan items, plan, and service type.

  • Services Live allows you to step through your plan in real time to keep track of timing, see your item notes right when you need them, and stay in sync.

  • All of your audio files (mp3, m4a, aac formats) can be played and temporarily downloaded to your device with the Media Player.

    Files will automatically delete from the device 30 days after the day that the plan is scheduled for.
