Introduction for Managers

If you're in charge of a signup for your church, you can access its settings and attendees by logging in to Registrations.


If you cannot log in, follow the steps in this article.


As a Manager, you will only have access to the signups you can manage. Click a signup to see its information.


You can add as much information to your signup as you'd like. Here's a quick overview of each section under the Configuration tab and links to show you how to use them.

  • Enter the dates and times, description, choose the image, location, and add other Managers from About.

  • From the Signup's Settings, choose how to show the signup on Church Center, and set it to automatically open and/or close, manage payment methods, manage registrant options, add a Support Contact, and add an email to the Notifications List. When someone registers, they receive a confirmation message. You can customize that message and list any email addresses that should receive an email when someone registers.

  • You added your first Selection at setup, but you can change the name or add more.

  • If you have any options or merchandise you want people to add to their registration, put those options in the Add-Ons options tab.

  • To gather information about group preferences, add custom Questions.

  • Create Discounts based on the date they register, how many register at the same time, or by giving out a code.

  • Add Scholarships and apply them to attendees after they've registered.

  • If you have any release forms, upload or attach them to Forms.

  • Create a custom confirmation message to be sent to all attendees after submitting their registration.

  • Configure Check-Ins for your event to take attendance using a station or Check-Ins event.

Once you've set up your signup, you can view it on Church Center.

Manage Attendees

The Registrations tab shows you all the attendees registered for the signup and gives an overview of their registration information.


Once you set up your event and before you send others to register, register yourself for it! You can create a discount code just for testers, and you can cancel the registration once you've finished it.

  1. Register people for the signup, if they are unable to do it on the public page.

  2. Take attendance for those who attended the signup or any meetings.

  3. Email the attendees.

  4. Create reports based on all attendees or export a report based on the attendees filters.


The Payments tab shows how much attendees have paid for this signup and how much is still due.



The Assignments tab allows you to organize attendees by placing them in the right place. You can assign your attendees to specific areas, seats, classes, automobiles, groups, and more!


Make sure all attendees are assigned for the most helpful results!



The Automations tab is where you can set up actions to happen to a profile automatically in other Planning Center products when an attendee is registered or cancels, or when a person is the registration contact of a new or canceled registration.
