  1. Most songs with a CCLI# have a default key, which will already be set. If your song doesn’t have a CCLI#, or if your song has a key change and ends in a different key, set that here.
  2. If this is a key a certain worship leader prefers or is the preferred congregational key, enter it here.
  3. Add an alternate key to get Capo versions of chord charts. Any chord charts made using our Lyrics & Chords Editor will give you charts in the main key and any alternate keys you add to a plan.
  4. If you've integrated with SongSelect or PraiseCharts account, you can import available files.

Click Save to be taken to the song on the Song page or plan.
