I use one day and a half to input hundred of hyms into the song database. Then I realise Proclaim coudn't find them.

My workflow was:

  1. Open a presentation
  2. Enter new hymns into the service section
  3. When Proclaim going to be sluggish, delete hymns from the service order list
  4. Enter new hymns...
  5. Quit Proclaim

Next service I realised my work had disapeared and I think maybe it was some sync issues. Bad, I have to redo it.

Today I've entered 50 of the hymns in a presentation one more time. I did not delete any of them. But when I try to add a new song item and search for this "new" hymns Proclaim will not find them. I tried searching for the title and search for the hymn number.

(Proclaim can still find "old" hymns.)

Hi, Ebbe. When you enter a song into Proclaim, you must enter a title in the song title field in order for it to be added to the "My Songs" database:

In the order of service on the left, Proclaim will default to naming a song service item by the first line of the song; this makes it appear as if you've entered a title in the box if you haven't.

Thanks Peter!

I have entered the title in the top "Song" field.

Then there is more work to do! Wink

I thought the top "Song" field was for the title and the title field only for searching in the data base. Why do we have the "Song" field?

The top field is the name of the Order of Service item -- the 'name of the slide set'. If you set the Song Title first, the Order of Service title will be set to match, but not the other way.

I'm sorry for the confusion!

That said, I think you should still be able to find them!

I've done it the right way before. Just typical I do it the wrong way when I spent a lot of hours to add this songs.

Thank You all!
