Planning Center is a popular church planning software-as-a-service that also features ways to organize your worship team. Many musicians prefer to use OnSong on stage. OnSong features integration with Planning Center to import songs and service plans into your OnSong library.
To access Planning Center, locate the Songs button in the upper left corner of the Menubar and tap to open the Songs Menu. Make sure that you have the Songs tab selected and that you are viewing All Songs or a book. Tap on the + button in the lower right corner to access the Add Songs Menu and then tap on the Planning Center option under the Import section.
Of course, before OnSong can access your Planning Center account, you will need to sign in. Enter your Planning Center credentials. If you are having trouble signing in, reset your password since this screen is provided completely by Planning Center. Once you're signed in, you should be able to view songs and plans in your account.
You can easily import songs listed in your Planning Center account by tapping on the Search Songs option to view and search from all the songs in the Planning Center library. Once you've found a song you want to import, you can tap on it to place a checkmark for import. You can then tap on the Import button to import the song into your OnSong library.
Of course, if you've already pulled the set to perform for the service, you can import those songs by choosing a plan. To do this, tap on a service type in the first screen to view plans in the service type. This will show plans that are upcoming. To view previous plans, toggle the Include Past Plans switch in the bottom toolbar. Once you've found a plan, tap on it to view the plan. You can then tap on the songs in the list to preview the song and choose a different version to preview which changes the file that is imported. When you're done, tap on the Import button to import the songs into a new set within OnSong and switch to that set in the Song Viewer.
Songs in Planning Center can have attachments which are different versions of the song. By default, OnSong will attempt to automatically select the version of the song that works best with OnSong such as a text-based chord chart. If you want to choose the version of the song to import, tap on the preview icon on the left of the songs to open the Preview Screen. Here you can tap on the Versions button in the upper right corner to choose the attachment to preview. Once you've previewed this version, you can close the preview screen and that version will be selected for import.
When Planning Center integration was first released, we've made a video tutorial to demonstrate some of this functionality. Things have changed in minor ways since then, but you can learn more about this integration in the following video.
