CCLI song usage report
How does the report function collect the information on what song is used per service? Is it a compilation of Schedules over the set time period? What if schedules are saved in several locations on the computer over a year- how does all of that information get collected? This has happened on our computer- multiple Save locations were used accidentally.
Joe, It doesn't use the schedules. EW will keep track of when a song Goes Live and how many times you Go Live to it. It will also track when a song is added to your database. So, even if you go live to a song during your practice or when setting up the schedule, it will show in the report.
You can get those stats from the Song Activity Report.
How does a song Go Live?
You can send a song live in EW by double clicking on it either in the Resource area or from the schedule. You can also select a song from the resources or the schedule and then click the Go Live button at the top.
In other words, I have to use the computer that is used to project items on Sunday mornings ... I can't do it from a list at home with a different computer.
For EW to report the song in the activity report, it has to go live on that same computer, yes.
If you want to use the SongSelect auto-reporting, any computer that you use that has an internet connection and is signed into your Songselect account and auto-reporting is turned on will send the report to SongSelect when you go live to the song.
