Welcome to Registrations! This article will introduce you to key features in Registrations. If you haven't already, you can check out our Product Website, which shows you how Registrations works for your church.
If you cannot log in, follow the steps in this article.
When you create a signup, you can manage the settings that others will see when they register on Church Center.
Enter the description, and choose the dates, times, image, location, and category, as well as assign managers, on the About tab.
From the Settings tab, choose how to show the signup on Church Center, set it to open and/or close for registrations automatically, and adjust payment and registrant options. You can also add any email addresses to the Notifications list for people who need to know when new registrations come in, and add a support contact for people to contact with questions.
A "Standard" Selection Type is included for you at setup since you have to have at least one in your Signup, but you can change the name and settings or add more.
Create Discounts based on the date people register, how many people register together in a group, or by giving out a code.
Add Scholarships and apply them as payments to attendees' registrations.
Add a custom confirmation email that will be sent to people when they register on the Confirmation message tab.
You can set up the ability to take attendance using a Check-In Station or a Check-In Event on the Check-Ins tab.
If you have used a different product for signups, here's the best way to transition to using Registrations:
Open a past event in the other system and recreate a signup in Registrations.
While setting up that signup in Registrations, make notes of the differences between the two products.
Planning Center partners with Stripe to process online payments. To take online payments, you must be connected to Stripe.
However, if you choose to only accept physical payments for signups, you don't have to be connected to Stripe.
All public signups live on Church Center, a website and mobile app created for you with a personalized URL .
When someone chooses a signup from the list, they'll be taken to the signup page, which is created based on your chosen settings.
Once you set up your event, register yourself for it to test it out! Once you've finished testing, you can delete completed test registrations in the signup.
When you click that, you'll see this helpful dialog box.
Suggested articles will give suggestions based on the page you're on when you click the question mark.
Click browse our documentation to be taken directly to our online manual. You'll be able to see all of our help articles and open them from there.
Type in what you're looking for. This will search our online manual and return articles on that topic.
Send an email to our Support Team. For the most efficient support, be sure to include specifics about what you're working with. When you submit your questions from here, we receive lots of information about your account, including the page you're viewing, which allows for fast and accurate support for your request.
Planning Center Support Team is dedicated to getting you an email response within an hour by looking into the issue in detail, asking for help from other seasoned team members, or even consulting a developer, if necessary. This type of direct assistance and shared knowledge is unavailable on the phone.
However, if you need a phone call, you can schedule one when you open a ticket.
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
