Add Members from the Admin Side

The best way to populate your groups is through Church Center; however, administrators and leaders can add, invite, or manage membership requests for groups on the Admin side.

Important

If you need to add multiple people to your Planning Center account, a People Administrator can import a file of profiles, which will speed up the process of adding those people to groups.

In the Members tab, click Add Member or Invite a new member to add a person to the group. If a person has requested to join the group, you can choose to add or don't add the person.

Tip

If the person added a message to their request, select View Message, and the message will expand below their information.

Send the person an email welcoming them to the group or explaining why you couldn't add them by checking the Reply box.
