Planning Center and aware3 Integration

Planning Center and aware3 Integration

When it comes to Planning Center Online, aware3 is connected in four key areas to save you time and build ongoing engagement: Events, Registration, Profiles, and Giving.

Events
Your PCO calendar can be pulled directly from PCO using the calendar feed.

We'll automatically keep your public-facing calendar in sync with your mobile app. All we’re looking for is your iCal feed. Learn more about how to find your iCal link in Planning Center here.

Once you have your iCal feed, simply plug it in to your Events feature in aware3

Registration
We can point to any registration form inside your app. If you’re using PCO forms and want to plug those in to your app, you'll want to use a Link or Links feature!

Profiles
Running People? As people complete their profile info in-app, we'll automatically write it over (including their profile pic). You can find instructions for setting up integration with PCO People below.

Profile Matching Process
When a user gives through any channel, the following logic will determine which PCO user profile is matched:

  • If the given email address does not exist in PCO, no profile is matched
  • If the given email address does exist in PCO, then
    • If only one user has said email address, the profile is matched
    • If more than one user has said email address, then
      • If one user's first name matches, the profile is matched
      • If more than one user's first name matches, no profile is matched

Giving
When a church member gives (with our processor PaymentSpring), the gift will write to both People and Giving. You can find instructions for setting up integration with PCO Giving below.

Setting Up Integration for Profiles and Giving  

To make the connection with your PCO Profiles and/or Giving, reach out to support@aware3.com and let us know that you're running Planning Center and would like us to set up integration. 

  • Using PCO People and PCO Giving? 

    • Note: Since we write back donations with our processor, PaymentSpring, not your Planning Center give page, you'll need to complete the PaymentSpring merchant account application and use PaymentSpring (aware3 Giving) for your app giving. You can continue running Planning Center for your web giving, and run PaymentSpring in parallel for your app giving if you want. 
    • Add the following user as an Administrator for your Planning Center People and Giving, which will allow us to set up the PCO People and Giving integration with your app:
  • Using PCO People and not PCO Giving?

    • Add the following user as an Administrator for your Planning Center People, which will allow us to set up the PCO People integration with your app:

Your church’s Planning Center Organization Administrator who subscribed to PCO should add aware3 as an Administrator in Planning Center People/Giving. Other Organization Administrators will not be able to do this.

First, log in to your Planning Center account. Navigate to the Giving section, select People, then select Administrators. Click the green Add Administrator button.
