We've partnered with a third party called Checkr to provide integrated background checks in Planning Center apps.
When you use Checkr for running background checks on your volunteers and staff, you can have confidence that the results are reliable, and the process is compliant to your local laws and regulations.
Whether you need to sign up for a new Checkr account or you are already a Checkr customer, go to the Integrations tab to connect Checkr with Planning Center.
Scroll to the Checkr integration, and select Connect to Checkr.
Create your account with Checkr or Sign in at the the top of the page.
When you sign up for Checkr, you will be asked to select the Purpose of your Checkr account. Choose Employment.
According to FTC, potential volunteers are covered by the same protections and compliance concerns that potential employees are. When it comes to background checks, you can think of volunteers as unpaid employees.
If you choose Legitimate Business Need, the candidate's driving records will not be available for order due to compliance issues.
If you've already created your Checkr account and know that you set that setting wrong, you can email Checkr support to ask them to change it.
Once you've integrated with Checkr, begin running background checks!
