Planning Center provides the option to “Block Out” dates that you know you are not available to serve.  To block out a date, click the “Block-out dates” button below your calendar, select a start and end date for when you will not be available, and click accept.

PCO Block Out Dates

To help remember dates that you have been scheduled, you can integrate your Planning Center calendar with iCal on Mac, Outlook on Windows, and Google calendars.  You can also integrate Planning Center with your Facebook account.

By clicking on one of the dates you are scheduled, you can view the service plan for that weekend.  Specific details about songs, special elements, and final service order are updated on Thursday of each week.

PCO Order of Service

At least once a quarter you will be receiving a scheduling email similar to the one below.  This email verifies that you have been placed on the schedule.  We need you to open this email and click the “Accept” button if you are able to serve that day.  If you are certain you will not be available to serve, click the “Decline” button.  By accepting the scheduling requests, we will know you are confirmed to serve that weekend, otherwise we’re not sure if you will be there or not.  You should also be getting an email on Thursday before the weekend you are serving just as a reminder.
