To begin creating a service plan for a service as an MSP administrator, open your live schedule from the Schedules pane inside of MSP. From the open schedule, click on a date and then the service you would like to begin editing the plan for, and then click the “Edit Plan” button at the top of the schedule window. This will open a new dialog with the edit service plan screen for that service.

Resources

You can upload resources using the “Add another resource” button. You can upload:

  • Songs (mp3 files, chord sheets, lyrics, etc).
  • Readings (PDF, Word, or other document types)
  • Videos
  • Power Point presentations
  • Any other document or resource your volunteers will need

You can also add a link to a webpage as a resource.

When uploading files or adding links, you can optionally choose to attach a particular resource or link to all related services that week, all other services at the same day and time, or every single service, as well as specify that only particular volunteers should see a resource.

USCCB Readings for Catholics

If you are a Catholic church, you can modify the attachment of USCCB readings and audio for services by clicking the edit button (it looks like a pencil icon) to the right of the USCCB Daily Reading resources or add a new reading module by selecting “Add a reading module” in the drop-down menu that appears after clicking “Add another resource”. As with files and links, you can optionally choose to attach a particular resource or link to all related services that week, all other services at the same day and time, or every single service, as well as specify that only particular volunteers should see a resource.

Notes

By clicking the “Add another note” button you can add notes that your volunteers will see when they view the service plan. You can optionally set the visibility of the note to all related services that week, all other services at the same day and time, or every single service, as well as specify that only particular volunteers should see a resource. This can be especially handy for letting volunteers know about any special requirements or information related to the service. For example, you can post a note just for Ushers letting them know that a particular door will be closed for the duration of that weekend’s services.
