Slide Looping

You can turn on Slide Looping for any item to have it automatically advance through multiple slides for that one item every x number of seconds, or to loop a single video file. You can also select a music playlist saved on your device to have it play through that audio at the same time. This is especially useful to have announcement slides & music loop before your service starts.

Tap the Settings icon for your item

Tap the Settings icon for your item

Right now the only way to have an item with separate images on each slide (as pictured) is to upload a Powerpoint file and attach it to that item. Planning Center will convert each slide from the Powerpoint into separate slided in Projector. (Any animations in the Powerpoint file are discarded.)

Set Looping Options
  1. Use the + and - buttons to increase or decrease the number of seconds each slide will display before transitioning to the next slide. If your item is a single video slide, you will not have the option to change the number of seconds, since the video will repeat when it is finished.
  2. If you would like to play an audio playlist while your slides loop, select it here. Playlists come from the music stored on your device synced through iTunes and are the only media not stored on Planning Center. Audio playlists loop independently of slides.

Looping Item Icon

Items with looping turned on have a Loop icon to the right of their title. When you play a looping item, the "Next Up" slide preview will always show the first slide of the next item since that is what will happen when you advance. If you set an audio playlist, when you advance to the next slide, there will be a slight delay while the audio fades out.
