Files that have been uploaded to your church's WorshipPlanning.com account can be downloaded by all Planners, and by Helpers that have been given access. Here is a description of how Helpers can have access to uploaded files (via the MyWP website):
- Service Files - Helpers that are scheduled to serve for a particular service have access to files attached to that service. The files can be found by clicking on the Files tab of a service assignment.
- Song Files (limited access) - Helpers that are scheduled to serve for a particular service have access to files of songs scheduled to be performed for that service. The files can be found by clicking on the "Files" tab of a service assignment.
- Song Files (full library) - Helpers can be granted access to the entire library of songs for their church. This includes all song library details, as well as files attached to songs. Helpers can access the songs library by logging in to MyWP, clicking on the Library navigation link, then clicking on the desired song. If there are files attached to the song, an "Attached Files" link will appear in the pop-up menu. To grant such access, edit the Helper and check the "Can access entire Songs Library (including song file access)" option. Click here to view a 20 second demo.
- Team Files - Helpers can access files attached to any teams that he or she is a member of. To access team files, the Helper must log in to MyWP, click on the "Download files" link in the lower right panel on the home page. Alternatively, the Helper can click on the People navigation link, select the desired team tab, then the File tab.
Files that can be downloaded will appear as links. If the file is of type MP3 and has been set to be "stream" (as designated by the Planner who uploaded the file), an MP3 Player window will pop up to allow the MP3 to be played right from WorshipPlanning.com. These files cannot be downloaded and saved to the Helper's local computer.
All other file types (and MP3s that are NOT set to be stream-only) will be simply be downloaded in accordance with how the Helper's web browser is configured. Many browsers are set to open certain file types right in the browser window. For example, Internet Explorer will typically open .jpg (picture) files in the browser rather than download them. If your browser is set to open the file in the browser, you can download instead by right-clicking the file.
