Connect Other Events to Calendar

Created on:
Updated on:

Each Planning Center product handles events differently, and not all of those details need to be in Calendar, but you may need to refer to those events in one place. When you create a Calendar event, you can connect it to a service type, event, signup, or group from other products. This lets you jump between products to see details as you plan events and add rooms and resources using Calendar! 

Add Connections to Events

Administrators and Event Creators can connect a Calendar event from the Connections tab.

  1. Select New connection.

  2. Select the product with the corresponding event.

  3. Select the connection based on the product.


    You can only see and connect to products that you can access. 



The connection is the group, not the group event.


The connection is the signup.

If a signup doesn't exist, Registration Administrators can create a new one by clicking Create signup. The information from the Calendar event will be copied to the signup, and you'll be taken to Registrations to complete the remaining information.



The connection is the Service Type where the plan is located.


The connection is the Check-In event.

Move Between Products

Once a connection is made between two events, the Administrators in both products will see a link to move between events.

From Calendar, you can select the connections icon or View to go to the event in the other product.



If you don't have the appropriate access for that event, you'll be taken to an error page.

In other products, Administrators can switch to the Calendar event by selecting the Calendar event from the dropdown icon.



Connected items do not sync. You must make changes to both products.

Registration Events

When a signup is created from Calendar, information like the name, dates and times, and event image will be copied. Once an event is connected to a signup in Registrations, you can jump between the event in both products.

  • You will need Administrator access to Registrations to create a signup from Calendar.

  • Connected events do not sync between Calendar and Registrations. If you change the date, time, or Church Center visibility settings, you must change events in both products.

  • If you are using a custom URL for your signup, you can add this to the Settings tab of the event.


Calendar events can connect to individual groups so that you can navigate between the group and your Calendar event. You must create an event in Calendar to connect it to a group. If you want group leaders to add their events to Calendar, create an event request form.

Convert Feeds to Connections

You can convert your feeds into connections. If you convert one feed, make sure you convert all feeds to see the connections on events. When you convert your feeds, all feed events will be made into connections, and you'll need to connect any newly created events to other products.


Converting feeds into connections is optional. If you rely heavily on auto-creation and sync between products, wait to convert feeds into connections.

What happens when I remove the feed?
  • The feed no longer appears in the filter; it is moved to the Connections dropdown.

  • Events are no longer automatically created, and edits to events no longer update corresponding events.

  • If you keep your events, they connect to another product, and event activity, information, and bookings stay intact.

Converting feeds is done the same way for Registrations and Groups. Follow the steps to convert your feeds to connections:

  1. From the filter, click the gear next to the feed you are converting and select Manage feeds.

  2. Confirm that you want to convert this feed to a connection by selecting Preserve events.



    If you want to delete all the events from this feed from your calendar, select Delete events.

If you have another feed to convert, repeat the steps above.
