Adding Songs to Your Library

There are a number of ways you can quickly build your songs library.  

Popular Songs Library

The first and fastest is to browse our "SP Popular" library, which is a list of the 1500 most popular songs in Service Planning.  For most songs, we provide the title, author(s), copyright year, publishing label, Spotify link, YouTube music video link, and Amazon MP3 purchase page.  For copyright reasons, we are not permitted to provide information such as lyrics.  However, you certainly can add them, and any other details about the song. 

Import From CCLI SongSelect

If you have an account for CCLI SongSelect, we provide you the steps for logging into their website, finding a song, exporting song details, and importing those details into your Service Planning account. The steps to accomplish this are presented as soon as you click on the "Import SongSelect" button on the Songs Library page.  You can also search and import SongSelect songs on the event flow editor.

Adding Songs Manually

Adding a song manually is the most straight-forward way of getting a song into your library.  Simply click the "Manually Add" button on the Songs tab from the Library page, and you'll be presented with fields for all the possible details.  When typing in the song title, Service Planning will attempt to match the song title with the songs in our Popular Songs library.  Select a match, and SP will fill in the details it can.  Keep in mind, only the Song Title is required for to create an entry in your library. 

Adding On-The-Fly

When specifying the details of your worship flow, if the desired song is not already in your library, you can simply type the new song title and Service Planning will create a new song for you on-the-fly. You'll then be taken to a page where you can enter more details about the song (if you wish) before you are returned to the worship flow.

Importing From CSV File

This feature allows you to import a large number of songs at once using a CSV (comma separated value) template file that we can provide. If you are interested in this option, contact us.
