Add ability to manage list of My Songs
Right now songs are automatically added to My Songs, but you can't rename them or delete them. It's going to become a big mess eventually and i'd love to have a way to manage that list.
We will be adding the ability to delete songs from the My Songs section. Renaming can be accomplished by renaming the song in the editor (resulting in a new song upload) and deleting the old version.

Yes it's really confusing because you're never sure if you're editing an old arrangement of a song or just starting from an old one. Like planning center, you need to have the song, but you need to have multiple arrangements of that song and it's song order.
If I understand that right? We have had the problem, when you are in edit and click on an existing song (in your current service, as if the musician changed their mind about what song they'll sing as next song), so you edit the song name BUT THEN accidentally hit enter instead of picking the right suggested song first and then double click on it.
the result is an existing song will be in there with a wrong name and the other song that used to have that name is gone.

I shared my thoughts about this here. https://community.logos.com/forums/t/136556.aspx
It would be helpful to be able to browse and organize our library of songs. There is the ability to reuse items from past presentations, but that is not really ideal as a place to keep anything organized.
For instance, we imported lots of songs into our 'my songs' library that we want to pick through and use, but there is no way to find them now without typing the name first. If there was a song browser, that would really help, but currently we have to use another place to manage songs.
Similar to the media browser, it could have a view to show only my songs, or the whole library, similar to how there is an option to show ALL or OWNED media. And then tags to sort by author, type of song, if it has been used before, etc. And then in the main list, options to Sort by last sung, # of times sung, etc.
An added bonus would be a panel on the right that would show a list of upcoming presentations filtered to show just the songs in them, and allow songs to be dragged from the master list straight into future presentations. All planning done quickly and easily.
I even threw together a concept image to illustrate what I mean. Song info could be added above the Service Planner if need be.

Can you also add any song added from CCLI to Your Song list? I don't like that it uses the CCLI version every time because that erases any changes I've made to the lyrics.
Jeremy, I know this isn't the ideal way of handling this, but you can save your songs in files and add blank songs and open the file. It does lose some info (though it might be i don't know everything about creating the files) but it works.
Any updates? Need discrete management of my library. I tested this for 2 days and it already had become a huge mess. This thing got 32 votes in a few days and now sits in limbo for over 3 months.
Any updates on timeframe? Been almost 3 months now.
Any updates on timeframe? Need this one before we can start seriously trying out the software.
