Caution

Planning Center does not limit the number of campuses you can have, but if you're adding a campus for the Check-ins Mobile Pass, keep in mind that each Apple Pass can only hold up to 10 addresses.

The campus information that you add will be used for organizing people, events, and features throughout other Planning Center products, as well as providing important information to people using the Church Center app.

Notice

If you subscribe to Planning Center Publishing, you will have the option to edit the campus names, visibility on Church Center, and locations in the account settings. All other campus details will be managed from within Publishing.

campus name & description_numbered
  1. If you have more than one campus, you can use a name for each campus that identifies the campus location. If you don't name your campus, it will be named after the city. The campus name will be shown in features throughout Planning Center, like when assigning campuses to folders in Services or in People forms.

  2. Check if you want the campus information to be available in the Church Center app.

  3. Add the campus address and time zone. The time zone is used for the Master Calendar in Services.

  4. Choose the Geolocation setting.

    • When Geolocation is set to Use address, the address is used to determine the location for Mobile Passes to Check-Ins users and for users of the Church Center app to find churches near their location.

    • If the geolocation service doesn't bring up your mobile passes or church in Church Center, you can choose Use coordinates from the Geolocation dropdown, and enter the coordinates for your church location manually. You can find your latitude and longitude coordinates on Google Maps.

Edit or Delete a Campus

Once you've added a campus, you can edit any information that has changed by clicking the pencil to the right of the campus.

After making all of your changes, click Save at the bottom of the page.
