Very useful 5/5
The app is super helpful, there are occasionally a few glitches, but they constantly work to improve the app and fix any problems. Thanks!
So Helpful 5/5

This is a great app!

Great App NEEDS Calendar feature 4/5
I enjoy using this app. Scheduling is easy to accept or decline plus music stand is helpful. It would be GREAT if there was a monthly calendar that members could view that would detail rehearsals for the teams not just those that are scheduled for events.
I love the new update but, somethings need to be fixed ASAP 3/5
By RALPHIE Q
I use this app regularly, I even schedule people on this app. Most of the app runs just fine like I’m able to view plans, review the itinerary, times, etc. The thing that I hate the most is that when you make a change to your schedule on the computer it won’t register correctly in the app. For example let’s say I moved myself to another position and filled that position with somebody else, it will show that that person was requested but it will still say that I am confirmed for two positions when in reality I’m only confirmed for the one I moved to. (This glitch only happens on my iPhone because when I view the app on a Samsung device everything works perfectly) This isn’t just a glitch on my end however, my supervisor has the same problem along with many people in my church. You really need to fix this, because it’s confusing a lot of people as to who is and isn’t scheduled!
Been complicated since 2012 1/5
It’s great when it works. I’m playing at multiple churches and have to log out of one and into the other after a password reset under the same email. Why can’t it just stay under my one profile and have the ability to select a service like before. This is incredibly annoying and things like this have been a problem since I started using this app. Other issues include the media player freezing and the app not opening or freezing when opened. I select one date and then go to another and the media player from the other date pops up. This app has proven problematic over and over. Please fix this.
Shows old plans 2/5
In “My Schedule” it shows the last 3 or more plans that I was in. 2 months after Christmas it still showed Christmas Eve services. Please fix as it is annoying and takes more time to find the current plan. Yes I have cleared Cashed Data
I don’t know if this is possible, but it would be really awesome if there was a transposing thingy in the app so you could just insert one of your songs and transpose it to a different key
Unable to use the app 1/5
HELP. Every time I attempt to log in, after numerous attempts it comes on the screen with a weird creature that says, “ uh oh, something went wrong, try logging out and back in again”. PLEASE HELP As I cannot see when I am scheduled to greet at our church services. I’ve even tried deleting the app and re installing it.
Not good 1/5
App is not good due to the constant updates
Not user friendly 1/5
As mobile apps go, this needs work. So many aspects just aren’t intuitive.
I don’t like this 1/5
By Eastveiw Christian Church
I don’t like this update because I cannot get to my music
Please Fix 🚫 4/5
First off, I love this app so much! But I have one problem. The app won’t let me change my profile picture. It’s been like this for a while and I really need to change it! Thank you guys!
Good but... 4/5
By zach lioez
This app is a great way for me to see what I’m scheduled for and to communicate if I can make it or not. However, recently I haven’t been receiving any schedule request for one of my positions and I don’t know why any help would be greatly appreciated.
The best update descriptions on the internet. The app is good also.
Great app, missing one thing 4/5
My church loves PCO and use it for every service. It’s awesome to have this app to make quick changes during meetings or see what’s going on in service from anywhere on campus. However, I wish administrators can change user permissions from this app, versus having to sign in online to do this.
Never Connects 2/5
Seems half the time I use this app there are network issues and it doesn’t allow me to enter Blackout dates or see my updated serving schedule. Since that’s all I use this app for I don’t have anything good to say about it.
Bug problem 5/5
I have this app and music stand on my phone and they are great. But i have it on ipad and when i sign in it returns to the login screen immediately. I tried resetting my ipad but i dont know what the problem is.
“Sign ups available”? 3/5
The button marked as above does not link me to available shifts for which to sign up.
I love the app update write ups!! 5/5
I go to the App Store just to check to see if the PCO app was recently updated so I can read these!!
Not accepting 2/5
I’ve used for years now every time I try to accept a request I get a “oops that didn’t work” message. Needs to be fixed.
I need help! 4/5
At the top of my app it says “my schedule” but it doesn’t have “plans” and I have no way to access old chord charts that are in the app.
BEWARE- this app has a VIRUS 1/5
Our church asked us to use The Planning Center for volunteer signups. Several of us downloaded the app and we got a virus! We all downloaded it at different days/times too. Some a couple months from each other. Anyway- our phones are really, really screwed up. Email apps need to be deleted and reinstalled, Drains batteries like crazy, kicks you off of WiFi, asks for your passwords constantly and now I can’t even access safari without spam coming up. DO NOT INSTALL!!!
Logging in! 1/5
I can’t seem to get logged in?
Unreliable for service planning/revising 2/5
I don’t know what our church would do without PCO.
But—it seems like a coin toss whether or not the iPad app will save the changes I make to plans. Item notes, needed positions, song attachments, you name it. I’ll hit the check mark to confirm the change only to see it not actually take effect.
I’ve gotten used to having to make the same change multiple times. Wish that I could eliminate this redundancy and frustration from my workflow.
PCO app 1/5
The new version of the mobile app is not working properly. I can’t sign up how I used to???? Please help fix the bug
Services not working with new version of app 1/5

Won’t let me confirm my request 3/5
Every time I’m scheduled for a job at church like pro presenter I click the confirm button and it will say error the request is invalid it is very frustrating. Help please
Great service 5/5
By Spencer Hola
My boss told me everything via this app! This is a great service and I recommend it for your church.
Please fix 3/5
I don’t know why but recently when switching between the plans for my church and my school the app crashes. Please fix!
Can I get app for my PC?
Good App 4/5
Love the app but can someone tell me why I don’t have the option for My Plans?
Photo Upload Issue 1/5
You all need to fix the uploading a photo option. I’ve been trying to upload my picture since December 19, 2018
Sometimes Amazing 3/5
It glitches all the time. When it doesn’t it’s the best thing ever but that rarely, if ever happens. It doesn’t seem to properly sync up to the website. The information is often wrong and sometimes random people show up in my scheduling. When that doesn’t happen it’s an amazing app but, that’s a very rare occurrence.
Works well 4/5
App works well
Ok app 3/5
Every week i have to pray extra hard so the mp3s decide to show up on it. It’s a hit or miss, I need to work with both the app and the webpage on my computer, that’s the only way to do it. Other than that i think is a good app.
Why can’t I use this to modify plans and create new ones? 2/5
This should be called “Planning Center Services Companion” app. If you are simply using it to look at your scheduled plans, it’s passable. Although the UI is a bit perplexing with many dead ends (back buttons anyone?) it does the job more or less if u are needing to a hand in practice, but that’s about it.
That’s being said, I don’t think modern people want to use just a portion of a service in an app. I don’t understand why I can’t use this to even ADD a person to a plan. As a leader it’s a real pain if, say I forget to add a person, and then I want to give them access to set on stage and I have to grab my laptop. Of maybe I wanna just review future plans on the fly I haven’t been scheduled on but I MADE BECAUSE I’M THE ADMIN and I can’t do it. Just annoying. I want a uniform experience.
By Help 04
Hi, I’d like the option of printing Order of Service directly from Planning Center App. Great app!
Is this app even actually available for newcomers? 3/5
Hi there. I see that at the top of the app’s description, it says: you must already have an account to use this mobile app.
Does this mean that I cannot create an account? Is it only available to former users? There is also no option to sign in, which leaves me wondering.
It seems to me that this app has great potential, but a tip or two, maybe some clarity, would be helpful. Thank you!!
Super helpful! 5/5
By O.o reviewingguy
Had a problem with things not updating I contacted help and support and they gave me an easy solution that fixed everything😁
“Oops… That didn’t work. Please try again.” Constantly. 3/5
No other app I use asks me to re-enter my password as often as this one does, destroying the convenience factor you expect when using an app.
Also, the app sometimes gets stuck in an out-of-sync state, and can’t be persuaded to reflect the true information visible from the website. This requires me to force-quit the app and/or go into Settings and use the “Reset” option under Cached Data. (I feel bad for my regular users, who will have no idea when their app data is stale and won’t know how to fix the problem.)
Additionally, it still seems to be using its own custom-built UI elements in certain areas, resulting in intermittently unpredictable behavior when dragging & dropping things in service order. Elements I’m moving can end up randomly hopping to different spots, so I sometimes have to switch to another service and back again to see where my latest changes actually ended up.
Overall, it feels like this app is built on an overcomplicated legacy codebase, which results in a less than ideal user experience. It’s still generally useful, but not as reliable as it needs to be.
A Game-Changer for Ministry 5/5
The guys at PCO have truly revolutionized how the local church prepares for events and services in a convenient and user-friendly platform. They consistently update the app and listen to their customers. Great job!
App is great! 5/5
Overall this app is great and works amazing in everything we do to organize our services, and the cross platform between groups Is great! There sometimes is bugs with the app and music stand, but the longer I use it the better it gets!
This app is amazing! It helps you with whatever your doing and every aspect of life. If your planning a concert,party, or anything else you might need an orginized way to plan this will work! Thanks planning center for all the help you provide
Just downloaded the app 3/5
Where’s the option to create an account so I can log in?
Works well. 4/5
EDIT: I tried a few things on my phone and it turns out another app was messing with the internet. So the issue has nothing to do with the Planning Center app. I fixed the issue and the app runs fine now.
Since I upgraded to iOS 12 every time I open the app it tells me there’s no internet connection and doesn’t load anything so I can’t use it right now.
Uh oh 1/5
By ✌️that girl
Whenever I log in it says “uh oh something went wrong.” It’s been doing this since I got the app and this is very stressful because I’m part of band at church and I can’t see when I’m on the schedule 🤷🏻♀️
It doesn’t work me cause I’m an usher for my church and I don’t get anything from them within several weeks!!!! I give this app “1” star cause of the service...
Slow Tempo Feature for Files 4/5
I like the app, I just wish there was a feature where you can slow down media files so musicians can better grasp melodies while practicing.
