FAQ

I’m New, What Do I Do?

  • Download the Slack app, if you don't already have it.
  • When you receive your invitation via email, sign into the app! You can choose your own adventure by muting or leaving channels (click on the channel name, and then the gear icon). Click on Channels to see a full list of what’s out there.
  • Head over to #introductions and let everyone know who you are, where you're from, and which Planning Center apps you use. By sharing your areas of expertise and interests, your fellow members know what to come to you for.
  • Then, check out all of the channel options, and join whichever ones you'd like. We've created app-specific channels, as well as channels for you to connect to churches in your area.

What's This All About?

We have three loves here at Planning Center. We love our team, we love technology, and we love our customers. This Slack experiment gives an opportunity for our customers to chat with each other, and help each other out. We'll poke our heads in from time to time, and possibly even schedule some AMA's (Ask Me Anything) with certain product managers and the leadership team.

Rules of Engagement

Let's all remember to treat each other right! That means no offensive language, objectionable content, or general un-constructive criticism of each other. We'll always give you the benefit of the doubt --- if we see something that we think isn't appropriate, we reserve the right to remove members at our discretion.

What If I Have a Support-Related Question? Can I Get Help Here?

This Slack community wasn't designed for support issues. We have a super friendly and knowledgable team that you can easily contact by clicking the [?] at the top right of any of our apps.
