Archiving and Restoring Songs and Arrangements

Created on:
Updated on:

If you have Songs or Arrangements that you've used in the past but no longer plan to use, you can archive them.

Do not delete songs or arrangements unless you are sure that you will not want to use them again.

Before archiving songs, you can create a filtered list with the songs that you want to archive, then archive them in bulk.

For example, you can create a filtered list of Christmas songs, and in the Fall when you're beginning to plan your Christmas services, you can find and restore those songs by filtering the Songs tab for archived songs with the tag.

You can archive or restore a single song or several songs at a time.
