DisplayChurch.Events (DCE) is an app which allows you to easily create beautiful, embeddable calendar views by integrating your Planning Center (PCO) account. At the moment, we sync with the following PCO products:
Calendars - allowing you to create calendars filtered by tags and groups (if you wish) to only show the events you wish to display.
Registrations - so you can link your forms for RSVP.
Section 1: Creating a free account
Go to the DisplayChurch.Events home page and click on Get Started for Free.
Complete the form with your name, email, and password.
Then click Start Free Trial to begin the process.
Section 2: Activating your DisplayChurch.Events account
2a. Have a look at the Configuration Checklist on your Dashboard. Click Activate account to start your free trial (brown box in image above).
2b. Then, go to your email. You should see a message from DisplayChurch.Events. Make sure to check all your tabs including the Spam folder. If you do not see a message, return to your Dashboard and click Resend activation link (turquoise arrow above).
2c. Click on the link in the email to activate your DisplayChurch.Events account. The green circle with the check mark shows you that you have successfully activated your account (see image below).
Section 3: Setting up your PCO - DCE integration
3a. There are two ways to get to the Integrations page.
One option is via the Dashboard.
Choosing your integration(s) is the second item in your Configuration Checklist (see brown box in image to the left).
Click on it to begin.
Another option is via the dropdown menu near your name.
Click on your name in the top, right-hand corner of your Dashboard.
A dropdown menu will open.
Click on Integrations (turquoise box in image to the right).
The Integrations page will open (image below).
The Planning Center (PCO) integration is in the middle (turquoise arrow above). Click on the Start integration button (brown box above).
NOTE: The button will turn blue as you hover over it.
3c. Click on the blue Integrate with PCO button.
3d. If you are not logged in to PCO, you will be taken to the log in screen.
3e. If you need to give permissions, DCE will prompt you. Here is an example:
Click on Allow to continue with the integration.
3f. Once logged in, the above confirmation will display. Click on the blue GO TO INTEGRATIONS PAGE button.
As you can see in the image above, the integration was successful because there is now sync information.
You will also get a confirmation email. Make sure to check all your folders -- sometimes important things end up in Spam!
Congratulations! Now you are ready to begin adding calendars and customizing them to your church branding.
