Introducing The TrainedUp + Planning Center Integration, Plus A New Menu

We’ve had a busy few months here at ServeHQ. In February, we announced our open API, new courses, and an updated permission manager. Then, two weeks ago we announced our new company name (ServeHQ) and that we are working on a new product called HuddleUp.

Today, we’re excited to announce two new aspects of TrainedUp in order to better serve the thousands of ministry leaders using our platform to train their teams.

Import People From Planning Center

Since launching our Open API, we’ve been super impressed with how quickly some churches have already created custom integrations between TrainedUp and the systems that they already use. At the same time, we recognize that not everyone has the time, budget, or ability to create a custom integration using our API.

So, in an effort to help eliminate the chaos that comes from disconnected workflows, we’re introducing our first dedicated integration with Planning Center People.

Planning Center People is a free church management system that has gained a ton of popularity in the past few years. Overwhelmingly, it is the most common system that ministry leaders report using.

As a team, we knew that our first priority after launching our API would be to create a dedicated integration between TrainedUp and Planning Center.

So, what does the integration do?

Our integration with Planning Center People allows you to easily import people from your Planning Center account into TrainedUp in just a few seconds. After connecting your Planning Center account to TrainedUp, you can select which people from your Planning Center lists that you would like to import. Not only that, but if you have a Standard or Multisite account with TrainedUp, you can assign the newly imported people to a ministry area and/or a campus in the same workflow — saving you a ton of time and effort.

New Menu In Anticipation For HuddleUp

Our team is hard at work developing the first communication tool created specifically to help ministry leaders connect quickly and safely with their volunteers teams, parents, and students. Since HuddleUp and TrainedUp will share a single platform, we knew it was time to introduce a new menu system inside of the ServeHQ platform.

The new menu is designed to help make managing your account even easier than before. You’ll notice that there are now three distinct sections within the menu: People, TrainedUp, and HuddleUp.

The People section is where you’ll manage all of the people across your ServeHQ products. The TrainedUp section allows you to manage all of your courses and view reporting. Finally, the HuddleUp section will be where you can manage all of your team, parent, and student communication.

We know that change can be difficult, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out via chat. Our team is always more than happy to help!
