Planning Center Song Arrangements

I love the ability to import songs from Planning Center and link songs within mediashout.
However, one of the biggest issues we run into with this integration is the lack of support for the different arrangements that Planning Center supports. When a song is imported to Mediashout, MS only uses the parent song record and not the individual arrangements. There are different versions of popular songs that might use slightly different lyrics or verses, and it would be nice for MS to recognize these different arrangement versions instead of the root song ID. This seems to be possible according to the planning center api.

Hey Jonathan,

In MediaShout 7, we plan to utilize the new API from Planning Center that should allow us to work with more of the information that has been entered into PCO. With MediaShout 6, we are working with the older API that only provides limited information. I apologize about that.

Any word on when the planning center feature will be available in V7? We use planning center to import our songs and until that feature is available we are stuck on V6 which has been a challenge for us.

Starting very soon, the Development Team plans to focus on third-party integration. Planning Center Online should be one of the first integrations that we add. We are hoping to add those within the next few months. We don't have a specific ETA nailed down, but that is the plan.

I hope this helps!

There was a problem in MS6 that prevented our using the import from Planning Center that I hope might be fixed in the new integration with MS7. We enter all of our lyrics in chord pro format, which has embedded chords in the lyrics. MS6 was not coded to remove those codes when importing lyrics. I hope this is taken into consideration in the new interface.

Hey there,

Our plan for MediaShout 7 is to use the new PCO API v2 (which came after V6 was released) and take advantage of additional features like ChordPro import as well as possibly accessing media stored in the PCO service for your lyrics or other objects. The goal is to have this added to MediaShout 7 by the end of the year.

I hope this helps!

Hi there,

Its looking like the Planning Center Integration will be coming after the New Year. There are still some things we need to get into MediaShout first (Templates, Importing a v6 Script, Light Theme, etc.). But, this is also one of the highest priority features to be added.

Is there any update on the Planning Center integration for Version 7. This is our biggest roadblock to upgrading from version 6.
