At the top of the screen, tap + New and then tap Service in the menu.

 

Services are used to plan your service items and manage the teams, positions, and people required.

The service type categorizes your services; some example service types are:

  • Church
  • Youth
  • Kids
  • Contemporary
  • Traditional
  • Midweek

A new service type isn’t needed for each service time; for example, you can have a Church: Sunday service with 9 am and 5 pm service times. If you need a new service type, simply type the name in the Type field when creating a service.

Service owners are the people who have the most permission for any particular service; they can edit the service plan, add teams, positions, and assign people.

Next, set when the next occurrence of the service is and pick one or more days that the service occurs along with how often. If the service repeats monthly, then you can either repeat on the same day of each month (e.g., the 15th) or the same occurrence (e.g., the 2nd Sunday or last Sunday).

If you have Saturday and Sunday services and they differ slightly in order of service, then pick both to repeat on both days. You can then set up the service order of both services independently.

The Service times section lets you specify the service time or times. For instance, you might have a rehearsal Thursday, and service times at 9 am and 5 pm Sunday. Given people’s busy lives, you don’t want people to forget to turn up, so service times are used to send reminders to scheduled people. These reminders are currently sent two days in advance.

More details

If you tap More details, you’ll see the service permission. By default, services are Public, meaning anyone with the service permission can view and change them. Changing this to the Protected option means only the service owners can change the service, while still allowing team leader to assign people. The Private permission option means only the service owners will be able to see the service; team leaders won’t see these services and won’t be able to assign people, this will be up to service owners to do.

Use the restrict access option to further limit the group to a group of people with that security area permission. For example, use this to limit to a particular campus.
