Its the administrative staff I never had that frees me up to create and focus on worship

Pros: It is simple as you want it to be and deep as you want it to be. In the short term and for the quick and easy it can put together a program in minutes. In the long term as you keep using it and the repertoire grows, it is fast and doesn't miss any administrative events. I depend on it and I haven't missed a beat. As a leader, it puts the onus on the team to follow through on assignments that and cover for subs when called for. As a communication tool I use it to organize any kind of concert as the timeline is flawless in sticking to a timeclock. So good is its coverage that I often use it in broadcast TV situations along with Pro Presenter.

Cons: It competes and exceeds performance of other software packages, but doesn't have the exposure and marketing advertising that others may have because the company puts its resources into the software. That would be a "con" to some who are interested in having marketing rule their brand.

Wow! Thank you so much for the great review, Yabo!

This website is a lifesaver for organization and communication between our staff and volunteers.

Pros: We use Worshipplanner.com daily to send emails to volunteers, upload files for our worship team, schedule volunteers and create detailed services. It's connection to Songselect is very useful as we choose music, as is it's ability to make detailed notes for everyone involved in Sunday morning. The unlimited storage is also a definite plus for us.

Cons: There are really very few issues we have come into with this website. I think the versatility of copying/linking services could be somewhat improved but overall there is not much to complain about!

Overall: Organization, communication, planning

Thanks for the feedback, Anna! We're especially excited to hear that the SongSelect integration is helpful! Keep an eye out for more similar integrations! It's good to know that copying/linking services could be a little smoother for you. We'll take a look at how we can improve that area.

Solid, reliable and easy to use

Pros: We've been using WorshipPlanning.com for years, and it has never let us down. It does just what we need without being bloated with stuff we don't need. Every Sunday is organized, and everyone can see what is going on. We have a rotation of disparate music leaders, so having visibility into what has been played recently was important to us. Everyone is now literally on the same page!

There are more features available than we use because we are so small. But I can see that there is a lot of power available if we needed it.

Overall: Sometimes on mobile the lyrics for a song can be cut off. But that's not something we use often anyway.

Thank you for the feedback! We try to keep the more advanced features out of the way when you only need the basic functionality.

Pros: I like that the user interface (from the user side) is simple and easy to use. I've been using it for about 4 years now.

Cons: The admin side is quite confusing in my opinion. Especially switching from user to admin. It doesn't work very well. I also don't like that you cannot create a spotify playlist via the admin side. It will create a sort of playlist, but it doesn't direct you to spotify, it only opens a dialogue box that you can list from.

Overall: Makes team management easy

Thanks so much for taking time to post the great feedback! It sounds like you've identified a few places we need figure out how to make smoother for you. I believe some of the items you mentioned are possible to do, though we may need to improve how it is implemented if someone with your 4+ years experience is still getting hung up with it. We'd be happy to have a call to discuss, if you're interested. Feel free to give us a call at 877.399.3342 after the holidays, and we'll help you out and figure out how we can improve.

It takes some time to set up, but helps a lot for managing worship team environment.

Pros: I like the way the software helps me to manage my teams and communicate assignments. I also like the way it works at a glance to see what my plan is for a given week. It also allows me to import songs from SongSelect and print out lyrics or highlights of the plan for other participants.

Cons: I haven't found very many negatives at this stage. Perhaps it would be nice to have additional options for communication with the team.

Overall: Excellent tool for planning worship services and communicating with the team!

Pros: No paper for our rehearsals! Everything is centralized! Everything is consistent! Love the ability to schedule our Praise Team members for different Sunday's they're assigned to sing! Love the ability that allows them to add another person on their team when they're NOT available or something comes up! Love the song books; music library!!!

Cons: Not being able to listen to the music and read the lyrics is a big issue! I am hoping this is changed in an upcoming version.

Thank you for the feedback, Barry! WorshipPlanning.com does allow you and your team to view lyrics and listen to music if that information has been added to the song, so we'll connect with you about where you might be having trouble.

Very user friendly. My music ministry members would now be lost without it!

Pros: The ability to post charts and recordings for my volunteers and the ability to communicate with them through your website

Cons: it is a little pricey. Unfortunately, it is a little hard to understand for our older, less tech-savvy volunteers.

Overall: The ability for my music team to always know what it going on and what is coming up.

Pros: This software is really easy to use. I have a small team at my church and am able to get the plan entered and send it out in a very timely manner.

Overall: I am able to save a lot of time in the worship planning process. I am currently only using the service planning page and scheduling.

Thank you so much for the review, Jason! We try to keep a "no church/ministry too small" philosophy, and are thrilled to hear it is helpful to your small team.

Pros: It's intuitive, it's easy to learn and use, response to feedback and enhancement has been superb, and it's expandable for use by many different types of ministries. We not only use it for worship planning, but we use it for kids and student ministry as well, and also as a type of database for storing files and other info in logical ways, and making that info available to others.

Cons: Like any software, I have several small nits - small nit-picky things that I'd change in the way that it behaves, or enhancements that might make a common task for me more easily accomplished. But overall, I'm very happy with it.

Overall: Great planning tool, great way to distribute information across many different ministries and people.
