When will we be able to add multiple hymnals?

My churches use two hymnals and some others use three or more.
Response from the site administrator
jasonsilver, 13.08.2014
Unfortunately I don't have plans to integrate this feature.

The reason for this is that hymnal numbers are automatically assigned based on which hymnal is chosen from the hymnal list. Having more than one hymnal would mean the program wouldn't know which hymnal number to choose automatically.

That said, there may be a way to always prefer one hymnal over another, but it seems complex to me.

If you have any suggestions as to how this would actually work in ServiceBuilder, please do make a recommendation in the comments below.

The cue sheet should be customizable.

It would be nice to be able to edit the cue sheet in a format that fits my needs.

increase size of data entry field

I noticed when entering attenders the box seemed small and the text for "first name and last name" was hard to read. I just started using this and so far I am very impressed. Thank you for your hard work.

Upload Praise Charts, Set Keys, Transpose, etc.

It would be great to add CCLI and praise charts so worship leaders could upload and maybe grant access to their bands, and change keys if needed.

Not notify those already scheduled when someone refuses an assignment.

I had a user refuse an assignment this week. The email went out asking for a volunteer, which it should have, but it also went out to users who were already scheduled for the week. Any way to filter those names out?

What are the chances of including the new Presbyterian Hymnal "Glory to God"

Response from the site administrator
jasonsilver, 06.11.2016
Any hymnal can be added if I'm sent a plain text index of the hymns with their hymn numbers.

Allow users (not admins) to note dates they are unavailable - either on the calendar or somehow on their individual profile.

We are a small worship team. Allowing users to let admins know when they are unavailable would help with planning & scheduling.
Response from the site administrator
jasonsilver, 11.08.2011
I have added this feature-- users can go to their own profiles to indicate when they are NOT available. Admins can set availability on everyone's profile.

When this happens, the user will not be available in the drop-down-box for the given date.

This should help one remember - you simple cannot schedule someone for a date they will be away.

As always, please try it out and let me know what you think. Additional ideas are welcome.

I would like to see better printing options. Clearer; Color....

I put our order of services in books for musicians, etc. When I print, it seems to be grainy and I can never print in color. It also doesn't fill the page (8 1/2 x 11).

retain the people in the service templates. We have several folks that are pretty static and to add them every week is repetitive.

When using a service template to create your new service, the people are stripped out. Most of our services have the same piano player, music directory, etc. It would be really slick to keep those folks in the template while allowing for changes.
Response from the site administrator
jasonsilver, 04.01.2012
The ability now exists to save more information into the template.

The template can contain people, the element type, comments per line, the order of each element, whether the line is 'bolded' (a new feature), and the length of each line.

When you are an administrator, there is now a checkbox at the top left of the service in service view. Checking it will finalize the service meaning it cannot be edited.

Response from the site administrator
jasonsilver, 23.04.2012
This has been started, and I welcome further suggestions.

Select your version from the options menu of 'settigns'.

I use the Bible Gateway as my source. I'm not sure how they will feel about it, but the last time I did something like this, they called me and said they didn't mind, as long as the copyright info was at the bottom of the scripture, which it is.

To make it appear as a link in the rundown, choose the "Element Type" of "Scripture."

Then you'll be able to click the link to view the scripture in an in-screen popup.
