User Accounts Overview

Tom Metz -

Every church using WP can have user accounts for their team leaders and members to use to log in. Each person is given their own unique login credentials, since WP does not permit login accounts to be shared by multiple people.

There are two types of login accounts in WP: Planners and Helpers. Planners are typically team leaders and those responsible for helping plan the details of the worship service. Helpers are typically the volunteers that help with the worship service, but aren't really involved with scheduling and planning.

Planners access WP via the main WP site using their userid and password. Churches have a limited number of Planner accounts that can be created, depending their subscription plan. Each Planner account has a "security level" of 0, 1, 2, or 3. Security level 0 has only “view” access, and can not add or change anything in the church's account. Level 3 can add, change, and delete anything in their church's account. More details on the privileges of each security level can be found on the Security page.

Helpers access WP via the MyWP site (http://my.worshipplanning.com) using their email address and password. On this site, they can view most details of services for which they are scheduled to serve, including service flow, song details, and file downloads. They can also respond to service assignments, indicate their serving preference and availability, change their contact information, and view contact information of other Helpers. If discussion threads have been set up, they can also access those threads. WP does not limit the number of Helper accounts each church can create.

    WP team,

       Is it possible to allow a team member to find their own substitute?  i.e. Mark, our drummer will be out.  It would be great if he could have permissions to use the WP.com tools to find and contact a replacement drummer directly instead of having to go through the team leader.

    Hi Matt.  This is an feature we are planning on developing.  I can't give you an exact timeframe yet, but it has been requested several times, and I imagine it won't be too long before we develop it.  Thanks for letting us know it is something that'd be helpful to your team!
