Linking Multiple Services

Tom Metz -

To plan multiple services that are identical in service flow (or nearly identical), WP allows you to "link" services. A service that is linked to another will automatically inherit the service flow changes you make to the "master" service. A linked service can be "unlinked" to no longer inherit changes to the master service. But once the link is broken, it cannot be re-established.

Multiple services can be linked to a single master, and they do not have to be on the same day as the master.

If services are linked, you are given additional options when making changes to service details, as well as when scheduling roles and assigning people. While changing service details (message title, location, Bible passage, etc.), you'll be given the option to have any changes you make copied to the linked services. While adding roles and people, WP gives you the option to have them added to the linked services as well.

To link a service, it must be created as a linked service (and the master service must be specified). The pages used to create single services and series of services give you the option to designate linked services.

    Thanks, this is helpful but I just have 1 question. When making edits to the master service, it doesn't seem to give the option  to have any changes you make copied to the linked services, it seems to do this automatically. Am I missing something?

    Hi Annie,

    No, you're correct. This is a change that was made over time that we need to update in the documentation. Thanks for pointing this out to us!

    I also have a question. I've already created a series of services titled 1st Quarter Sunday Am. Its a 8:30 service. We have a 10:30 service thats identical except for some teams and there's no worship flow added. In the 8:30 edit mode I link the 10:30 service and add the different teams assigned and save. Correct?

    In order to do this for the entire series I must edit each date or do it when creating the series?

    Hi John,

    I'm moving this conversation over to a support ticket. Look for an email shortly.
