If you've ever felt lost in a sea of moving parts while organizing your files to share with your team, you're not alone. But there’s good news! 

The Add a File popup just got a makeover, and it's here to make your life much easier. 

From chord charts, audio files, and videos to stage layouts, text docs, and other PDFs, you can manage tons of files using the Add a File popup.

Let's dive into the changes and upgrades that will make your planning sessions smoother than a well-played chord progression.

Out With the Old, In With the One-Column Popup

Remember the days of the 10-tab, two-column layout that wasn’t the best on your phone? They’re gone. Now there’s a sleek one-column design that's easy on the eyes and makes it a breeze to use whether you’re on your desktop or on the go with your phone.

Organized Upload Options

Adding files has never been this easy! The Add a File popup now caters to your specific needs, displaying different options based on where you’re attaching files. Here’s how.

  • Import from Integrations
    You probably know that feeling of having to go to multiple grocery stores to find all your ingredients or just the right combination of snacks. That’s kind of what it’s been like trying to import files from your integrations.

    There used to be multiple tabs powered by Multitracks. Click, click, click to get to where you need to be. But in the new and improved design, RehearsalPack, Chart Pro, and RehearsalMix have joined forces under a single mighty Multitracks tab. 

    You can still import files from PraiseCharts and SongSelect, making this a one-stop shop for all your integration needs.

  • Link to Streaming Platforms
    Search and add links to files from your favorite streaming platforms—YouTube, Vimeo, Spotify, Apple Music, or Amazon Music.
  • Create Stage Layouts Quickly
    If you’re adding files directly to a specific plan, now you can create a stage layout on the fly!
  • Add Files From Any Hosting Service
    Reel in other files you have across the Internet by linking to Dropbox, Google Drive, or anywhere else they exist. Think of the File Link option as your digital tractor beam.
  • Create Text Documents
    Last in this all-star cast, but certainly not least, is the Text Document feature, which has become more versatile. Rich text formatting? Check. Available as a PDF? Check. Are text documents now exciting? Check. 

    You can even add text documents to Service Types and regular plan items! When you do, that PDF seamlessly joins the company of your chord chart PDFs in Planning Center Music Stand.

This update lets you do everything you did before, but now it's snappier, more efficient, and gives you the power to sprinkle text documents wherever you please. So, go ahead, fellow planners, and explore the revamped Add a File popup. 

Happy planning!
