How to set up the SongSelect® by CCLI® Integration

If you have a SongSelect® by CCLI® account, you can easily integrate with Elvanto. This will allow you to import songs and their information directly into Elvanto.

What the Integration can do

The integration is designed to do the following:

  • Auto-fill a number of fields about the song, such as Copyright details and Album/Artist information
  • Import the lyrics into the Song Arrangement’s Lyrics and Chords tab.
  • Import PDF chord chart files from SongSelect into Elvanto and attaches them to the relevant song.

What the Integration doesn’t do

The integration is not capable of performing the following:

  • Does not import chords into the Lyrics and Chords tab in a way that allows users to transpose them.
  • Does not report song usage automatically to CCLI on your behalf.

    Note: You will be redirected to the SongSelect by CCLI's website and prompted to log in with your SongSelect login credentials. 
  7. Enter your SongSelect Username and Password and select Continue.
    Note: If you have access to multiple organizations in CCLI you will be prompted to select an organization. If you only have one location you will automatically be redirected to Elvanto and the integration will be set up.

  9. You will be redirected to Elvanto and SongSelect should now appear in your lists of integrations. 

You can now import lyrics and chord charts with your integration setup! This will pull in available song information, chord charts, and lyrics.

Please note that chord charts are imported as PDF files that are attached to the song. Due to restrictions from the SongSelect API, we can not import the chord charts into Elvanto in a format that allows us to add them as chord charts in Elvanto.
