Add multiple songs

You can add more than one song at a time with the “Add multiple songs” button located on the “Song Catalog” page.

Add multiple songs to song catalog

In addition, if you are logging into setlisthelper.com for the first time you will be prompted with the “Add multiple songs” page.

“Song name”, “Artist”, and “Key” can be put into the “Add multiple songs” page. You can also add the “Song Name” only.

The correct format to put multiple songs into the “Add multiple songs” page is:

{Song name}, {Artist name}, {Song Key}

For example the text below will add 2 songs.

Brown Eyed Girl, Van Morrison, G
The Middle, Jimmy Eat world, C

The “,” can be replaced with another type of delimiter such as a “Tab”. You can insert a “Tab” between the “Song Name” and “Artist Name” by pressing the “Tab” key on your keyboard. Using the “Tab” is useful if you wanted to copy several songs from a spreadsheet, such as Google docs or Microsoft Excel, and paste the songs into the “Add multiple songs” page.

Thanks for using www.setlisthelper.com!

  1. I am new to the app. Is there a quick way to add lyrics that are typed and stored in microsoft word .doc format?

    Thanks

    Hi there. Any chance of a key change function being added?
    Regards. Peter

  3. Hi Peter, I have this half way done. I expect to get this into an update in Sept.

  4. Android doesn’t provide developers with Word document support to integrate into their apps. Therefore, I don’t have support for word documents. iOS/iPad has this support for developers so you will see many song book apps on iOS that have Word support.

    One thing I can suggest is convert all your word document to txt files then import them. I have not tried this tool http://convert-word-to-txt.software.informer.com/ but you could convert all your files to txt. In Setlist Helper there is a import function on the Songs tab. Click it and it will tell you to put the txt files. To keeps the spacing that your Word document has you have to surround you lyrics with {sot}{eot}. For example,

    {sot}
    Place you lyrics here
    {eot}

    Sorry I can’t help you more.

  5. Hi there. Just bought the app. You mention an “import” function on the Songs tab — but I don’t see it. (I assume you mean the Song Catalog tab.) I want to import some lyrics that I’ve saved as .txt files. Thanks.

  6. Hi Greg,

    Sorry for the late reply. There is a import function when you go to the songs tab in the menu. Email me at tim@setlisthelper.com if you need more help.
