Two Bands
« on: December 11, 2013, 02:48:15 AM »
Hi, I have been using Set List Maker for quite a while now and it is excellent.

However I have just reformed the band with a couple of new members and I wish to "reset" the statistics but not lose the old ones.

I could start another database from scratch but the song list is big and it seems unnecessary as it is a continuation of the same band.

What I want is to have statistics such as times song performed, last performed etc only for the new band.

Furthermore how do I set up rehearsals? Do i have to use Shows or is there another way? This is to keep a record of songs tried at practise sessions etc.

Regards

Gary

The number of times performed and last date performed are determined by the shows that a song appears in, so you could "reset" those by deleting all your past shows.

But if you want to keep a record of past shows, it would be better to copy your database first, then delete the shows in the new copy. Then you could still go back to the old copy if you want to see the shows you performed with the previous lineup.

Note that the last date performed will be updated as soon as you perform a song with the new band, so the only thing you'd really be gaining is resetting the number of times performed.

For your second question, there's no way to set up a "rehearsal" separate from a "show," but you could name the show something like "rehearsal" with a date, or "release show rehearsal" if you want to be more specific. The downside is that this will inflate your number of times performed for those songs.
