Quick check & change personal notes for a setlist

Personal song notes (instrument and setlist short notes as well as general notes) can now be more easily added for a whole setlist.

This is how you can step through the songs of a whole setlist with the personal notes form remaining open for edits:

  1. Select a setlist (from anywhere, e.g. an event or just the setlist overview)
  2. Select a song from the setlist (any song - does not have the first one)
  3. Click on the “Edit personal notes” button
  4. Click the checkbox “Edit personal notes of the next song in the current setlist after saving this one.“ directly above the save button

You can also just jump to the next or previous song in the setlist via the according navigation buttons. This will not save any changes you made for the current song though


Assign band mates to an event

If a specific band mate is not needed for an event a band admin and event admin can set the band mate to “not needed” in the event edit screen.

With that you can now e.g. create rehearsals for the vocals or brass section only without these events showing up in the other band mates' calendars. Same applies to e.g. the technical team that often times may not be needed for band rehearsals.

For each band member there also is a default setting in their profile. This setting can be changed by an admin of the band (defaults to “needed“).

(ZONE-2354, ZONE-1190)

Block changes of availabilities

There is a new band setting “Lock event participations for regular band members.“.

With this setting activated, band members without band- or event-admin role cannot change their event availability anymore if an availability already has been provided for them and the event status is anything other than "requested".
Locked event statuses and availabilities are marked by a padlock 🔒.
Affected band members are able to request a change from the event admin via a link that is presented in place of the availability button.


Activate the restricted availability selection in your band's settings
With the restriction activated, certain availabilities cannot be changed anymore

Duration of sets in a setlist

Now the durations of sets in a setlists are not only shown in the setlist download screen but also directly in the setlist edit and setlist rearrange screen.

With that you can easily tailor the sets to specific lengths.

As previously the sets are defined by the songs between breaks. So to create a new set you would just add a break and then add the songs of the new set after the break.


Venue data in events

Now you can decide to store venue data directly within events rather than having to create a venue first.

This is helpful for “one-off” locations where you don’t want to create a re-usable venue.

However, you can also decide to create re-usable venue directly from within the event creation/edit screen by ticking the according checkbox. The newly created venue will then automatically be linked to the event.
