Plans created in Planning Center Services can be imported directly into Playback (or the website)! All songs linked to popular recordings in the song catalog will be automatically added as a brand new setlist that stays linked to the imported plan.

This article walks through the steps to import songs from a Planning Center Plan directly into a new setlist all within the Playback app.

Planning Center Service's Plans can also be imported from, or auto-imported. Learn More about Auto Import and Auto Update here.

Before Starting

  • Importing Planning Center Plans into Playback can be done by any user that has the role of Team Leader, Campus Admin, or Organization Admin. Team Members will not have the permission with their role to import plans as setlists for the organization. (See sharing setlists with your team for more info).

  • Make sure your account is already linked with your Planning Center account. (Article)

  • Make sure your Planning Center songs are linked to songs* (Article)

*Cloud Songs cannot currently be linked to Planning Center songs for the setlist integration

Importing Plans in Playback

  • Navigate to the Setlists Menu and choose Import from Planning Center.

  • Navigate to the correct Planning Center Service type, where you will see the plan title, series name, date and service times.

  • Once you see all songs laid out in the plan, tap Import after which you can select to open the setlist immediately. Playback Rentals customers can rent unowned songs or automatically load any tracks that are already purchased for songs.

Your Planning Center plan has now been imported into and linked to Planning Center!
