How to Assign Songs to a Service

You can assign songs to a service in Elvanto in two ways: adding a song to the service plan or as a service song. Follow the steps below to learn how to assign songs using both methods.

Assigning a Song from the Service Plan

  1. Click on the Add Song button on the top right corner of the Service Plan page.
  2. When the window appears, select a song to add it to the Service Plan. You can add any existing songs from the songs area.
    • Note: You can search by song title or lyrics and also filter songs. You can also see when a song was last used and how many times it has been used. Change the ‘Last Used & Times Used’ drop-down to narrow these statistics down to a specific service type or location.
  3. Once a song has been selected, ensure the Service Times box is ticked.
  4. Edit the song item to include specific information such as:
    • Selecting an arrangement
    • Key
    • CCLI Reporting fields 
    • Changing or unlinking the song from the service

Assigning a Service Song from the Sidebar

  1. To include other songs in the service but not necessarily in the service plan, click on the Add button under Songs in the sidebar.
  2. Select a song to add to the songs list.
    • Note: If you check the box to Add Song to Service Plan, the song will appear in the service plan. Otherwise, it will not be added to the service plan but will remain on the left sidebar under the Songs heading.
