The Planning Center Giving API now supports webhooks—messages sent from our system to yours to let you know about new or changed data in our software.
Our goal is to continually improve our API (Application Programming Interface) so outside developers can build their features off of current code easily.
Planning Center Services' internal apps and some of the web app's new pages have moved to v2 of our API, so we are beginning to depreciate API v1.
This week, Planning Center released something very near and dear to my heart: the Planning Center API Explorer!
The Giving API is open for business! We're also introducing Payment Sources - a new way of tracking donations that came through an external donation system.
This one is for the programmers: introducing webhooks! Webhooks give your website or application a way to receive updates from Planning Center in real time.
Last year we met a youth pastor who shared with us how he uses our Check-Ins API in his ministry; we loved his ideas so much we wanted to share a few with you!
