Planning Center is used as the hub for our worship team. We use it to schedule volunteers; allowing them to communicate their availability as well. We also use it as a tool for planning services, preaching schedules/sermon series, and special events. It allows us to coordinate with volunteers, get them the information they need, and make sure we're all on the same page as a staff.
- Volunteer coordination with blockout dates.
- Fantastic repository of resources.
- Adding files to an item on a playlist can be hard to find outside of that set.
- Previewing songs on import gives very limited info - can be hard to find the correct one.

Planning Center is very scalable for use in both small and large applications. If you're already using ProPresenter, it integrates well, saving time. It really shines with the added Music Stand app for use by team members for practicing on their own time. If you have a very small or limited team without the need for advanced scheduling, another more "basic" option could be more suitable.

Planning Center is being used at my church for different areas, such as the nursery schedule, worship leader schedule, and Sunday School teacher schedule. It helps tremendously to keep everyone on the same page, updated on curriculum/song selection, and allows everyone to see other people's schedules (ex. someone going on vacation on a certain weekend, so someone else can volunteer for a slot). This is a great communication tool to have multiple people informed always of what's going on, changes, etc.

Planning Center is a great tool not only for church groups (where you have several different ministries running at the same time and/or different people work in a couple different ministries), but it's great for those who have many different events that they are trying to plan or stay on top of at the same time. It keeps everyone informed of what's going on, what's needed, and if there are new places to sign up.
