Song Reporting

The song reporting settings screen changes the behavior of the Song Reporting Screen. It also affects how songs are tracked in the app for reporting purposes.

Reporting Method

Songs can be tracked in two different ways:

  • By Set uses the date and time specified for a set to determine if a song was played on that day. For instance, if you create a set for June 15, 2015, and add songs, those songs will be reported as being used on that date. It is important to archive your sets instead of deleting them to allow this usage information to remain intact. This works best for users that always create a set before the performance. Default.
  • By Usage is more sophisticated in that it tracks the usage of songs based on how long they have appeared on the screen. This can more accurately keep track of what songs were used whether sets are used or not.

Usage Report Tracking

When tracking by usage, OnSong adds a delay to not track songs that were only being previewed. You can change this delay in tracking to:

  • Immediately tracks the song as soon as it's viewed.
  • After 1-minute tracks the song after it has been viewed for one minute. Default.
  • After 2-5 minutes tracks the song after it has been viewed for a longer period.

Collate Reports

This setting changes the timeframes used for aggregation in the reporting screen. Options include:

  • Daily tracks songs day by day.
  • Weekly tracks songs used each week. Default.
  • Monthly tracks songs used each month.
  • Quarterly tracks songs used each quarter of the year.
  • Yearly tracks songs used each year.

Sort Order

This setting changes the order in which timeframes appear. The default option is in descending chronological order.

*Note: OnSong does report the usage of your songs to services like CCLI. You will need to enable Auto-Reporting.**
