Account Help / Re: Request: Data API

Custom fields should be included if you turn on the Public option on the custom field edit page. For events, you'll get the public custom fields for the first contact attached to the event. Am I ahead of you again?  ;D

For set lists and smart lists, the feed URL is specific to one set list or smart list, so you would know the name when you use the URL and can just display it. I think the only time that would be an issue is if you're regularly changing the names of the set lists and you need the current name to be reflected, but that seems unlikely. I think it's more likely you'd want to hard code a "public" name on your website and leave that consistent even if you change the "internal" name in BandHelper.

I had a feeling you were out ahead of me! You always are.

It looks like custom fields aren't included in the JSON output. Can that be added?

Also it'd be great if some details about the setlist or smartlist could be included, even if just the name. I see your structure here is just a long array, so perhaps this could be a new object type?

Account Help / Request: Data API

I can think of all sorts of things I might build using BandHelper data if there were a data API I could use to get at my content.

I'd for SURE want to build a song request web app that derives its song list from the live contents of a BandHelper setlist or smart list. In the post-Covid world, I want touchless song selection for my live karaoke shows.

I'd like to make a song selection randomizer, kicked off by commands issued by viewers of my livestream.

I could imagine an advanced CRM that connects with and expands on the "contacts" section of BandHelper. Or interfaces BandHelper with Salesforce or something!

A data API is what I'd need to make all these things. In my day gig, I'm a Product Manager in the real estate space, and my main product is a data API platform for MLS data. So I know about data access, security, and the kind of modes of interaction that data consumers would want.

Work with me, Arlo! This would be so cool!!
Repertoire Help / Re: Split View with Lyrics and Document

Sorry, you can't show the Lyrics field and attached documents at the same time on the same screen. If you add a second mobile device and use Live Sharing, or connect an external display to your device, you could then show one or the other on the second screen.

Converting from JPEG to PDF wouldn't give you any benefits in this area.
Repertoire Help / Split View with Lyrics and Document

Not sure if this is possible.  Been using BandHelper for a few years now.  I play the drums and backup sing.  So basically up to this point, I make a set list and just have the lyrics displayed with color coding for chorus or other multi person lyrics.

I would like to add drum charts if this is possible on a split screen with the lyrics of each song.  I have notes on paper of a songs structure, beats, fills etc.

It would be great if I could still see the lyrics and a picture of my notes of the song, best of both worlds.  I managed to get the picture uploaded as a document but can only toggle from one to the other on my Ipad.  Is there a way to split screen the lyrics and a document?  I did read it would need to be in PDF format, right now its a JPEG.  Didn't want to try and convert if it won't work anyway.

Yep, no need to do the calculations manually.  :)

Oh ok thanks, I didn't know ratings were unique for each individual band member. I thought that was an all or nothing field.

Thanks that simplifies things.

This is already built-in, so you don't need to use custom fields. On the Repertoire > Songs page, each song has a rating button that users can click to select 1-5 (5 is best). This is also available on the song edit page.

Then when you add songs to a set list or filter songs on a smart list, you can sort or filter by rating and that will use the average of all the ratings that have been entered for each song. For example, you can make a smart list that only shows songs rated 3.5 and above, or you can simply view the ratings when adding songs to a set list to take the ratings into account when manually selecting songs.
