Wow, last month was a long month!! Shannon and I had our 4th wedding anniversary, my daughter had her 1st birthday and this was my first year doing taxes for myself and my business, what a learning experience. And through all of that I have been able to get a lot of great features into this new version of Planning Center!!! And with no further ado here they are:
Ministry Positions allow you to add a position to your plan without knowing who is going to fill it, and then easily find a person for that position based on your custom properties. This, combined with templates, will be a powerful feature which we plan on adding a lot more to in the next update.
Download All PDFs is a link at the top of each plan that combines all PDF's attached anywhere in your plan into one single PDF
New song selection dialog when adding a song to a plan that allows you to filter using your custom properties
When adding a song to a plan, it remember the notes from the last time you used that song
People & Song reports allow you to see when you used a song or person for a particular ministry
Ministries can now have attachments
Chord Charts now allow for different font sizes and the interface changes based on which font you select
You can now hide any songs you don't want to see in your song list but need to keep for archival purposes.
All sent e-mails are tracked so you can see who received which e-mail.
You can now see & modify blocked-out dates from each person's page
You can now attach files to people
CHANGE: Scheduled viewers can no longer view personal information of others in the plan
CHANGE: Scheduled viewers can no longer see services that they have been scheduled for but the notification has not been sent
New features tour
Miscellaneous bug fixes & interface clean-up
Well with this release out of the way I am already working on the next release which promises to have some pretty cool features in it. I am also going to start gearing up for all of the Worship Conferences this Summer & Fall. So, if you know of any conferences that would be good for me to exhibit Planning Center at, please shoot me an e-mail or leave a comment. I am also trying to come up with some cool swag to give away so please let me know if you have any ideas for those also. Thanks,
