This article is a quick overview of how Display.Church (D.C) connects with your Planning Center (PCO) data. A 'deeper dive' overview is available here.

Which Display.Church products are available?

At the moment, all of the D.C products are available to PCO users: Calendar views, Groups widget views, and Event ALERTS.

Which event filters are available?

Filtering is done in the Setup Tab. Here is a list of the data filter options:

  • Show hidden events: Display those events which are marked as hidden in PCO.

  • Show events with images only: Just show those items which have some sort of picture or other image.

  • Merge recurring events: Show only 1 occurrence of events which repeat.

  • Filter by tag(s)

  • Filter by tag group(s)

  • Filter by group(s)

  • Filter by approval status

Can we include CTA forms?


For calendars, D.C. can link to your PCO sign-up forms.

For groups views, we offer up to two CTA buttons and a number of linking options (see dropdown menu in image below).

What does the integration process look like?

Basically, you will need to log in to D.C, go to the Integrations page, and give D.C permission to access your PCO data. This is called SCOPES.

There are three permissions:

  • People: This first item is a must. It is automatically turned on by Display.Church.

  • Calendar: Permission to pull your events from the PCO Calendar service.

  • Groups: Permission to pull your groups so you can filter events by groups.

How to give permission:

Check the items you wish to use. The box will turn blue.

Uncheck the items you do not wish to use. The box will be greyed out.
