Managing Built-in Pages

Created on:
Updated on:

Built-in pages help congregants view, register for, and check into events, join groups, and give, depending on which Planning Center products your church uses. They are set up in the product that corresponds with the page, so they can't be managed in Publishing.

Check out the video below on built-in pages, and then read the rest of the article for more information.

If you don't have Admin access to configure a built-in page, you won't be able to edit it. Ask the product Admin to either make the changes for you or give you access to the product.

Publishing or Hiding Built-in Pages

By default, the products that you chose to display when you set up your Publishing account will be published to Church Center. 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 Unpublished pages will be shown as Draft.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, find the page in the All Pages tab, click the triangle menu  to the right, and select Unpublish.

If the page's status is Draft, you can publish it from the dropdown menu.

Updating Built-in Pages

Built-in pages can be updated from the Admin side of Planning Center, as shown in the table below. See the linked articles for details on how to make these updates.
