Part 3 – Using Services

Services is probably the most useful part of Elvanto for your ministry. It helps you schedule volunteers, plan services, and effectively change these plans on the fly.

Service Plans

Service Plans are just that- a handy way to plan your services. If you’ve already set up a service type, then you only have to drag across the songs, and add any other items.

Scheduling Volunteers

Elvanto offers a variety of ways to schedule volunteers. You can add them to services — even multiple services at a time — you can put them into teams and schedule the teams on, or you can set up Elvanto to automatically schedule them on.


Auto-scheduling adds volunteers into required positions in selected services. It checks volunteer availability and their assigned positions to fill the needed vacancies.

Elvanto LIVE

Elvanto LIVE is a production tool useful when your services are actually happening. It helps you keep track of time, and make changes while the service is happening.
