SongSelect Integration and WPMobile Updates

SongSelect by CCLI

A few weeks ago, CCLI enabled a technology that allows services like WorshipPlanning.com to integrate directly with their SongSelect service.  This means is that SongSelect account holders will be able to search and import SongSelect songs right from your WorshipPlanning.com account.  You’ll even be able to import the chord sheet (if available) directly, in the key of your choice.

The SongSelect integration features is in active development here at WP, and we hope to have it ready for you by the end of October.

WP Mobile Update

WP Mobile ReorderWe recently made an exciting first step with the WP Mobile site (WPM) that’s in the direction I know many Planners have been wanting WPM to go.  If you are a worship editor (security level 1) or higher, you can now change the worship flow order.  This may seem small, but believe me when I say that adding and editing worship flow elements is not too far behind.  And shortly after that will be the ability to manage team schedules.

For those of you using the native iPhone app, we strongly encourage you to try the mobile site.  Most people agree it performs much better, and it already has more functionality (including the ability to scrub through MP3s and view PDFs).  You can easily access the mobile site by pointing your device to http://wplan.me. (accessing this link with your computer will take you to the main WP site, so feel free to use it on your desktop/laptop as well!)

Version 4.0.2 Update

WP Version 4.0.2

Well, we are about two weeks into WP 4.0, and the feedback has been great!  Let me just take a moment to thank everyone that has given positive and constructive feedback.  Since the update, we have applied several small fixes for bugs and other minor issues.  But today, we have a slightly bigger update that we want to share with you.  Here is what’s included with version 4.0.2, which was applied earlier this morning:

Song Selection Window

Selecting Songs for Worship – We replaced the cumbersome drop-down list of songs on the Worship Flow page with a much more functional window that lists all your songs.  You can sort by various fields and even see when the song was last used by clicking on the song’s magnifying glass icon.

User Info Window – We replaced the small user info box (that appears when you click on a person’s name) with a larger window that’s easier to read.  And notes you have entered about this user will also be visible to Planners.

Persistent Login Update – We’ve modified the “logout” button so that it no longer logs you out of ALL persistent session (across all computers/browsers). Instead, it just ends the persistent session of the computer you are on.  To end the persistent session on other computers, you can go to Account >> My Profile.  On your profile page you’ll see a button that says “Log me out of all other computers”.   Technically, this operation will just end the persistent nature everywhere you have logged in.  It DOES NOT force an immediate logout of all those sessions.  More information about persistent login sessions can be found on our support site here: http://support.worshipplanning.com/entries/20425211-stay-logged-in-setting.

Big ButtonsBig Buttons – On many pages, we took the most popular “actions menu” options and made them into big buttons on the left side.  It’s a simple enhancement, but simple is what we are all about.
