WorshipStorm Projector requires a monthly recurring in-app subscription ($4.99 USD) to be purchased by one Apple ID (the "owning Apple ID") that is used by someone your Planning Center Services Organization. That Apple ID must also have iCloud enabled. The PCO User that logs into Projector to Subscribe (the "authorized PCO User") must also have General Permissions of Editor or Administrator to help assure that the subscription is managed by someone who your Organization authorizes to 'own' (and pay for) Projector.
Projector implements iCloud CloudKit Sharing to allow the owning Apple ID to "share" the Projector Database with any number of other Apple IDs (and iOS devices) that are used by others in your Organization. Once caveat is that iOS 9 devices cannot subscribe to Projector or fully participate in iCloud Sharing. See the following Help article for additional information:
Limited Functionality Mode
Projector will run in a limited functionality mode when initially downloaded from the App Store. The limited functionality mode includes the following restrictions:
- No data can be saved to the cloud (either PCO Services or iCloud). Any changes made will remain local to the device and will be overwritten with cloud data when refreshed.
- Existing Layout data (from PCO Services) will not be available
- No new Layouts can be created
Projector Sharing Popup
When you login to Projector (or restart again without logging out) you will be presented with the Projector Sharing popup. If your organization has not yet subscribed to Projector and you are logged into Planning Center Services with an account that has permissions to subscribe, you will have the opportunity to subscribe to Projector with your Apple ID:
If you click the Subscribe Now button, Projector will present the in-app purchase UI to purchase the Projector subscription for your Planning Center Organization.
If you choose to not subscribe (Close button), Projector will continue to run and you can browse for plans and load them (as your PCO Services user permissions allow), but in limited functionality mode.
Once you have completed the subscription purchase, the Projector Sharing popup will confirm that you are subscribed and that your Organization is now enabled for Projector Sharing:
You (as the authorized PCO User) may then use Projector in its full capacity, and also invite other Apple ID devices in your Organization to share Projector data (Projector Sharing) as long as you are logged into Projector on a device signed-in with the owning Apple ID.
Since the management of Projector Sharing requires the authorized PCO User to be logged-into Projector on an iOS device that is signed-in with the owning Apple ID, it is recommended that your organization have two (or more) iOS devices that are signed-in with the owning Apple ID and are readily available to use when preparing your services, should you ever need to add or remove Apple IDs from Projector Sharing.
