Yes, I now see that. I also see that this feature requires the purchase of the Advanced Audio upgrade as well.

Thanks for your help, Arlo.

On the Settings > General Settings page, you can click Remove Downloaded Files, and turn off Auto-Download Files. Then when you want to play a recording, you can click its icon and BandHelper will prompt you to download just that recording.

When adding an account to a device, the Auto-Download Files option is on the login page, so you can turn that off from the start.

BTW, I see one account with your email address and its total size for recordings is 272 MB. So that's substantial, but probably won't matter much on a 64 GB phone. You can go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage to see how much space each app and its data uses.
Repertoire Help / Data sprawl on devices with limited storage
« Last post by endoverend on November 19, 2018, 08:29:05 AM »
I am a intermediate user Techie type.

I am upgrading my phone today so I needed to scrape all of the data off it and noticed that BH with mp3s in it takes up a huge amount of data space.
If I wanted to have recordings for all of my setlists fully populated in BH it will pretty much choke my phone leading to other issues such as not happy with the phone...

Solution: is there a way to sync BH without pulling any mp3s to the app on a phone? OR
- can we set up urls to the mp3 files (in google drive or on a nas) and be able to access the file when needed through the web?

I see the scenario of meeting a new band member, giving them the login to my account and then their phone gets overloaded with mp3s and dies on them as a possibility as well with them not happy with me.

What is the best approach?

FYI the new iPhone x Max is 64gb or a really expensive upgrade and I prefer to have all my stuff in the cloud anyways.

The new app version released today will include every page of a multi-page document:

Also for BandHelper only, if you use the Date Updated footer option, that will use the date of the document, not the song.

Today's app releases make the Shortcuts sections available to everyone. The utility setting to turn this feature on and off is also gone, but you can selectively turn off the Shortcuts sections by lowering the Settings > Appearance > Menu Shortcuts settings to 0.

I think it would also help if we have a new field for the users with the function in the band. e.g. drummer, singer, guitarist and so on.
So it will be possible to send only documents to the e.g. drummer and you don't have to look who it is. (if you have a lot of bandmates or guest-players)

The user edit page now has a Role field, which will be displayed in all the user pickers throughout BandHelper. You can also use the Sort Order field to group users together -- for example, to put all your drum subs together. This does not function like a user access group as you mentioned -- you still have to assign documents to individual users -- but I put that on my wish list.

The user edit page now has Role and Sort Order fields:

The role should appear, and the sort order should be used, whenever a user picker appears in BandHelper.

On a related note, the Name field in the Display Info section is now required, and will appear throughout BandHelper instead of the username. This means the username will only be used for logging in.

With today's release, you will now see a Move a User option on the event edit page, which you can use to manually move users between the Accepted, Declined and No Response states:
Repertoire Help / Re: can't share layout with my other band members
« Last post by arlo on November 18, 2018, 04:38:54 PM »
The new app versions released today include a Scalable option for layouts. If you turn this on, the layouts will appear on all devices (but only in the same orientation) and will scale to fit device screens if needed. If the screen doesn't have the same aspect ratio, there will be some extra space at the edges. But this allows you to use the same layout across different phone models.

Another new option is that when you copy a layout, you can choose to scale it to the current screen size. So you could create a layout on one phone model, then open it on another model and copy with scaling to get roughly the same layout, then edit the new layout on the new device to utilize any extra space resulting from a different aspect ratio.

You would probably not want to use the scaling options when going from a tablet to a phone or vice versa, because the buttons would either end up too small in the first case or too large in the second case.

The Add Recordings window shows recordings in iTunes by default. You have to click the Local button at the top to show recordings saved in the local app directory. Are you doing that?

Thanks, Arlo; I should have elaborated further.

After using SLM for a few years, I'm aware that if a document or recording is faded, that it is because it has not been associated with a song. In this situation, I cannot seem to find the actual recording to then attach it to a song.

When I navigate to the songs section, I tap on the add recording button, which brings up a list of all available recordings to choose from. The new audio that I am seeking does not appear anywhere in that list.
