Full Version: Song with several Keys and a file for each key

Hi Mobile Sheets Team,


actually I have a lot of songs that are played by differnt worship teams in different keys. So now I have several song entrys. I'd would like to group these key-versions.
It would be amazing if I can have one Song and have different files for different keys for this song.
One key-file can be marked as "favourite", one file can be marked as original-key.
For each file it is saved in which exact key it is. If I choose the song I can select which key I want it (or the favourite key is selected automatically and can be manually changed).


Or how is the best practise way in the actual mobile sheets version?


Best regards from Germany,
Samuel
There is a planned feature for song versioning which you can read about in other forum posts. I plan to allow any song to have multiple versions that you will be able to switch between with a dropdown, and when building a setlist, you will be able to choose which version of a song you want to use. Once this feature is available (which won't be until after the iOS version of MobileSheets is released), you will be able to set up multiple versions of a song to handle each key. For now, you'll have to just have multiple song entries in the library. I would just name them the same exact for adding the key at the end of the title to distinguish it from other versions.

Hi Mike,

thank you for your quick answer. 
The song versioning feature sounds great. Especially in a non english country, where you sometimes sing the songs in english, sometimes in german. Some songs have such strange german names that searching them with the english name is often more convenient.

I'm looking forward to the new versions.

IMHO, the transposition is the biggest issue with Mobile Sheets. I get my system all tickity boo and go to some jam where for some reason I need to transpose a bunch of songs and because they can't be temporarily transposed, all these songs get messed up. I can't be the only one.
