Adding Song Titles in Content Manager

Post by Boardwalk Jazzman » Wed Nov 28, 2012 12:40 pm

When adding Song Titles in Content Manager, there is a blank field for adding the composer information. However, after manually typing in the composer name, it doesn't "take" when the song is added, unless it is a new composer. To enter a composer name previously entered, it only "takes" when I use the drop down list of composers. I would like to just be able to type the composer name in, it's faster then scrolling through a long list.

Also, it would be convenient if the book index drop down list also defaulted to the last entry selected, so when I have multiple songs to enter for a new book, I don't have to keep scrolling through the book index list for every new song title added.

What you can try is clicking on the drop down and then begin typing in the name, which will bring you to the composer that you want to add. The trick here is that you have to type relatively quickly for that to work.

We're working on having that field respect the current filter setting.

I noticed you have already made the requested improvement - you have fixed the book index drop down list to default to the last entry, just like I requested. Also, I tried your tip of typing the first few letters of the composer name in the drop down list; that works very well, usually I only need the first two or three letters to highlight the correct composer and then I just hit the enter key. The improvement you made, plus the tip you gave, results in much faster entry for song titles than previously. Thank you Phil!
