Define your Annual, Monthly and Daily Goals. All publishers are encouraged to set Ministry Goals, not just Pioneers. You can “Apply Your Daily Schedule” to a Month from the Activity screen top/right menu.

Tightly integrated with Territory Helper to view your territory offline and to manage maps and locations. You can request and return maps, filter and sort locations, and overlay your calls onto the map you are working.
You have control over what happens when a new Contact is created or a new Visit is added to a Contact. Based on the Contact Type, you can set the number of days auto-assigned to the Next Visit Date and what Visit Type is selected. Control when the Pins change from Yellow > Orange > Red > Blood Red for each Contact Type.
The “Other” Hours category can be used for many things. Perhaps you do LDC work? Or you are a Branch Consultant? Plan and track your hours with this category. You can rename the category in Settings to match your requirements. In the Settings you can control if these Hours are included in your Activity screens, in the Hours column of your Report, or just in the Report Comment.
ServicePlanner includes a lot of powerful features. But this is just the beginning. There are so many more exciting features to come. I hope this app helps you to have a fulfilling and productive ministry.
