Contact Information Permissions

Giving people access to Planning Center depends on their role at your church. Staff and background-checked leaders may have enough trust to access people's information, whether to edit or view, but people outside of that trusted circle should be given lower permissions.

Important

Only organization administrators can edit profile information for people across all Planning Center products.

This table outlines who can access people's contact information based on their permissions in another product.

Give Access

You can make someone an administrator from the People page or a manager from the specific signup.

When a person is added, they'll receive an email that allows them to set their password and log in.

Important

Emails are sent to the primary email address, except for Account Settings. Account Settings sends an email to every email address listed on an organization administrator or billing manager's profile.

Administrator

To give administrator access to a person, search their name on the People page.

From the Permissions tab on their profile page, click Admin.

Managers

Managers are added to individual signups and can manage settings and registrations for the signups shared with them without being an administrator. They cannot access any other signups.

If you want someone to be a manager, go to About on the signup's Configuration tab and search for their name to add them to the Contributors list.

Remove Access

Remove an administrator by clicking Non Admin on the Permissions tab of their profile.

Remove a manager by clicking the X next to their name in the Contributors section.

Removing a person's access will not notify them. When they try to log in, they will encounter an error page.
