Worship Planning is a solid program for team management

2017-12-22

Makes team management easy

Pros

I like that the user interface (from the user side) is simple and easy to use.

Cons

The admin side is quite confusing in my opinion. Especially switching from user to admin. It doesn't work very well. I also don't like that you cannot create a spotify playlist via the admin side. It will create a sort of playlist, but it doesn't direct you to spotify, it only opens a dialogue box that you can list from.

Thanks so much for taking time to post the great feedback! It sounds like you've identified a few places we need figure out how to make smoother for you.

I believe some of the items you mentioned are possible to do, though we may need to improve how it is implemented if someone with your 4+ years experience is still getting hung up with it. We'd be happy to have a call to discuss, if you're interested.

Feel free to give us a call at 877.399.3342 after the holidays, and we'll help you out and figure out how we can improve.

Online Worship Service Planning

2019-11-13

Worshipplanning.com is a straight forward and functional website. It gets the job done at a fraction of the cost of its competitors.

Pros

The browser-based software is easy to use and it covers all the necessary basics needed to create and plan a worship service. The online scheduler is very useful, the file-hosting is great and the integration with CCLI and other popular worship software programs is really well done.

Cons

The user interface could use some work.

Hi Alexis,
Thank you for the review! You'll be happy to hear we have a major update, including a new user interface, that is live for new sign-ups, and being rolled out over the next few months to existing accounts. If your organization is interested in using the new update sooner than currently scheduled, feel free to contact me or our support team.

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback.

Solid, reliable and easy to use

2017-12-22

Sometimes on mobile the lyrics for a song can be cut off.

Pros

We've been using WorshipPlanning.com for years, and it has never let us down. It does just what we need without being bloated with stuff we don't need. Every Sunday is organized, and everyone can see what is going on. We have a rotation of disparate music leaders, so having visibility into what has been played recently was important to us. Everyone is now literally on the same page! There are more features available than we use because we are so small. But I can see that there is a lot of power available if we needed it.

Nancy F.

Very user friendly. My music ministry members would now be lost without it!

2017-12-21

The ability for my music team to always know what it going on and what is coming up.

Pros

The ability to post charts and recordings for my volunteers and the ability to communicate with them through your website

Cons

Unfortunately, it is a little hard to understand for our older, less tech-savvy volunteers.

This website is a lifesaver for organization and communication between our staff and volunteers.

2017-12-28

Organization, communication, planning

Pros

We use Worshipplanner.com daily to send emails to volunteers, upload files for our worship team, schedule volunteers and create detailed services.

Cons

There are really very few issues we have come into with this website. I think the versatility of copying/linking services could be somewhat improved but overall there is not much to complain about!

Thanks for the feedback, Anna! We're especially excited to hear that the SongSelect integration is helpful! Keep an eye out for more similar integrations!

It's good to know that copying/linking services could be a little smoother for you. We'll take a look at how we can improve that area.

WorshipPlanning.com makes scheduling teams so simple!

2018-01-30

Team members have expressed that the software can be confusing to use. There are many great functions that take some time to figure out.

Pros

The ability to import from sites like SongSelect makes it all very worthwhile!

Worship Planning is a great company with a useful product that could use an update

2018-06-22

Worship planning helps our team coordinate its schedule and get on the same page ahead of our practices.

Pros

Worship planning does a good job of the basic functionality of coordinating the schedule of our team.

Cons

Worship planning has pretty basic functionality compared to its competitors and could use a modern design refresh.

We sincerely appreciate the feedback, Tim. It truly helps us improve! In the 15 years we've been around, our internal development motto has been "be the best at the basics". In other words, while there are many solutions out there with lots of bells and whistles, we feel those often come at the expense of making things complicated and expensive.

That said, we've worked hard to keep up with what the majority of users ask for...things like text notifications, self-signups, song arrangement management, and a growing list of integrations with other cloud-based software.

Regarding the design looking a little aged, we agree. We are actually in the midst of a user interface redesign. Thankfully, the way we've coded the software allows us to do a redesign without doing a complete rewrite.

Thanks again, Tim, for your honest feedback. I'm more than happy to chat with you further about any of these, or other items. Just give us a call at 877-399-3342 and ask for Tom.

Confusing and not intuitive

2019-10-25

When everything could be done far easier using excel and email and PDFs of songs sheets.

Pros

I like that links to songs can be added to the worship service liturgy, so worship team members can access the version of the song being sung.

Cons

Unfortunately - The site is difficult to navigate, is not at all intuitive, scheduling groups or individuals is confusing, going between 5 different areas of the website to get people scheduled is time consuming and tedious. Everything that can be done in WorshipPlanning can now , for the most part, be done in CCBm, where we already have schedules and groups set up.

It takes some time to set up, but helps a lot for managing worship team environment.

2017-12-21

Excellent tool for planning worship services and communicating with the team!

Pros

It also allows me to import songs from SongSelect and print out lyrics or highlights of the plan for other participants.

Cons

I haven't found very many negatives at this stage. Perhaps it would be nice to have additional options for communication with the team.

Affordable and Functional

2019-07-19

Good experience overall. No issues. No outages. Consistently works with no surprises.

Pros

The price point is great. It has pretty much all the bells and whistles you need in a service planning website. Organize, schedule, plan and provide resources all in one spot. Very well done.

Cons

The user interface is clunky and ugly.

Worshipplanning.com has been a great tool for us in planning worship and related tasks.

2017-11-28

Great planning tool, great way to distribute information across many different ministries and people.

Pros

We not only use it for worship planning, but we use it for kids and student ministry as well, and also as a type of database for storing files and other info in logical ways, and making that info available to others.

Cons

Like any software, I have several small nits - small nit-picky things that I'd change in the way that it behaves, or enhancements that might make a common task for me more easily accomplished. But overall, I'm very happy with it.

Not the Best Service Planning Software, but not Terrible

2019-04-30

Comparatively, it's just not as good as Planning Center Online. It's not terrible, but it's also just not as intuitive.

Pros

I like that our worship leader is able to attach many file types to the songs.

Cons

It's just not the most intuitive software to use.

Great tool for helping plan & organize worship service

2020-03-03

Very limited, but overall very positive. I would definitely consider in the future.

Pros

It allows the various people involved in our services to access the order of service/notes of the components of our service

Cons

This was a great tool. I enjoyed it a lot. However, being a smaller church, It just wasn't necessary for us at this time. We ended up canceling to save money.

Solid and Inexpensive Church Service Planner

2018-10-09

Overall it has been solid. It does what we need it to do and the price is great.

Pros

Scheduling and planning functionalities all work well. Integrates with most other programs and platforms you would need it to.

Cons

It is not the easiest site to navigate but it does have most of what you need once you learn it. It is not a good looking site either.

Thank you for the honest review! If forced to choose, we'd take "solid performance" over "good looking" any day of the week. But you'll be happy to know we are working on a major update that will give everything a new look and make the functionality even more intuitive.

As with every customer (or potential customer), if you ever have trouble or issues, you are welcome to give us a call. We are delighted to assist by phone (or email if you prefer). 1-877-399-3342.

Thanks again!

Its the administrative staff I never had that frees me up to create and focus on worship

2017-12-31

Pros

In the long term as you keep using it and the repertoire grows, it is fast and doesn't miss any administrative events. I depend on it and I haven't missed a beat.

Cons

It competes and exceeds performance of other software packages, but doesn't have the exposure and marketing advertising that others may have because the company puts its resources into the software. That would be a "con" to some who are interested in having marketing rule their brand.

When planning is key!

2018-03-12

Pros

To be able to see the layout of when everything is instead of waiting for "cues" has made Sunday's so much easier! We are able to program how many people will be on that altar, the song list and order, and email everyone.

Cons

There are very few problems that we have had. Overall, there is not much to complain about! I wish we would have used this sooner.
