Adding Songs to Your Library

Tom Metz -

There are a number of ways you can quickly build your songs library.  

Popular Songs Library

The first and fastest is to browse our "Popular Songs" library, which is a list of the 1000 most popular songs in WorshipPlanning.com.  For most songs, we provide the title, author(s), copyright year, publishing label, YouTube music video link, and Amazon MP3 purchase page.  For copyright reasons, we are not permitted to provide information such as lyrics.  However, you certainly can add them, and any other details about the song.  For a listing of all the song details that can be added, see the Songs Library Overview article.

Import From CCLI SongSelect

If you have an account for CCLI SongSelect, we provide you the steps for logging into their website, finding a song, exporting a song details, and importing those details into your WorshipPlanning.com account.  The steps to accomplish this are presented as soon as you click on the "Import SongSelect file" button on the Songs Library page.

Adding Songs Manually

Adding a song manually is the most straight-forward way of getting a song into your library.  Simply click the "Add a New Song Manually" button on the Songs Library page, and you'll be presented with fields for all the possible details.  When typing in the song title, WorshipPlanning.com will attempt to match the song title with the songs in our Popular Songs library.  Select a match, and WP will fill in the details it can.  Keep in mind, only the Song Title is required for to create an entry in your library.

Adding On-The-Fly

When specifying the details of your worship flow, if the desired song is not already in your library, you can simply type the new song title and WorshipPlanning.com will create a new song for you on-the-fly.  You'll then be taken to a page where you can enter more details about the song (if you wish) before you are returned to the worship flow.

Importing From Excel

This feature allows you to import a large number of songs at once using a Microsoft Excel template that we can provide.  If you are interested in this option, contact us.

    Hi Terrie.  I'm not exactly certain what your question is, but I'm pretty sure the answer is "Yes".  You can add multiple songs to your library at once, from the Popular Songs list, song import, and CCLI Song Select.  You can associate multiple files with songs.  And you can put multiple songs in your worship flow.  Does that answer your question?

    Can a folder of songs be imported and do they need to be in a specific format?

    Hi Edward.  No, right now songs can only be added using the methods mentioned above.  If you are looking to upload files, you can do so one at a time via drag-n-drop (using Chrome), or by selecting them via your browser file selection interface.
