How can I get training or support?

Created on:
Updated on:

Some management systems require much training before you can get started. Planning Center is designed with simplicity in mind, so most features are easy to use. In addition, all applications come with a 30-day free trial you can activate on your own and instantly start using.

If you need help, we have training materials and courses that can scale and be used by many people--not just Administrators of the account.

Brainstorm with Other Churches

The Planning Center Communities are great ways for churches to share advice and connect. They are for strategizing with other church members, not for support.

If you have a part in implementing any Planning Center product at your church, sign up on Slack or Facebook and join the conversation!

Organization Administrator Requests

These requests to Support can only be made by organization administrators:

  • Data removal or corrections you can't make yourself (undo old CSV imports, iCal imports, etc)

  • Request promotional pricing (legacy plans, church plants, Giving contract promotion)

  • Gain access to anything that was created and managed by someone else in the account

  • Restore or fully delete a canceled account

  • Disconnect a Stripe account

  • Request access to Giving (if there are no current Giving administrators in the account)
