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 like they are with feeds. If you need to refer to those events in one place, you can connect them to a service type, event, signup, or group from other products. This lets you jump between products associated with the event to see details as you add the schedule, rooms, and resources.

Notice

Connections do not sync. Any changes made in one product must be made in the connected products.

If you want signups and groups to sync, use feeds.

Add Connections to Events

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

  1. Select New connection.

  3. Choose the associated service type, event, signup, or group.

    You can only see and connect to products that you can access. If you cannot find what you need, contact an administrator.

    Notice

    If a signup doesn't exist, 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.

Move Between Products

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

Notice

You'll be taken to an error page if you don't have the appropriate access for the other product.

Select the connections icon or View to go to the event in the other product.

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

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.

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

Groups

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 and send it to group leaders.
