Bandhelper App Shortcuts/URL Scheme
« on: August 12, 2018, 11:38:11 PM »
Hi,

Is it possible to do the opposite of http://forum.arlomedia.com/index.php/topic,1216.0.html using a `bandhelper://` url?

Thanks,

Tony

Do you mean to open BandHelper from another app? Yes.

Cool, what is the url scheme?

I'd like to embed something like the following in an email/slack message so I can direct people to exactly the place they need to look at:
Code: [Select]
Please review the list of songs for next rehearsal at:
bandhelper://repertoire/set_list_songs_edit.html?ID=bXIGzS
# or
bandhelper://repertoire/set_lists/rehearsal/song_list/edit

### or

Can you check the lyrics of:
bandhelper://repertoire/song_edit.html?ID=kjwSvQ
# or
bandhelper://repertoire/songs/time_warp/lyrics/edit

The URL scheme is bandhelper. There's no direct link to a song. You can send a link to a set list by going to the set list details page, clicking Send Update With Comment and entering a comment. Then a message will be sent to each user with a link. Depending on the user's notification settings, this will either be an email message with a link to the set list on the website, or an SMS or in-app message with a link to the set list in the app.

If you want to manually generate a link to the set list in the app, you can write bandhelper://set_list/[ID] and get the ID from the URL of the website page. However, this isn't really supported because the format could change in future versions.
