Manage Built-in Pages

Created on:
Updated on:

Built-in pages help congregants join groups, give, view, register for, and check in to events, depending on the Planning Center products your church uses. The pages are set up in the product that corresponds with the page, but you can choose to show or hide them on Church Center from Publishing.

Not all pages are built-in pages. The built-in pages have the corresponding product icon under the Built-In Page column to indicate where the page comes from.


If you can't edit a built-in page, ask an administrator to make the changes for you or give you access to the product.

Show or Hide Built-In Pages

You can tell which pages are published by their status. Unpublished pages will be shown as Draft.

If you want to hide a built-in page from Church Center visibility, select the Actions menu for the page, and choose Unpublish.


If the page is a Draft, you can publish it from the Actions menu.
