CCLI tracking and reporting
Regular song reporting enables CCLI to accurately distribute royalties and ChurchSuite makes it easy to record and report on the songs you use. In order to track your song usage, first ensure that any Types you've created for songs have the CCLI tracking enabled - this can be done when you Add or Edit a Type.
Enabling CCLI tracking now will surface a CCLI Number field on library items of that Type - this can be seen when adding or editing library items. Enter the relevant CCLI number whenever you add or edit a new song Library Item.
Please note that a song must be a Library Item in order to have a CCLI Number assigned to it and for song usage to be tracked. When using Add plan item it's possible to add an ad hoc song item to a Plan, however it's not possible to assign a CCLI Number to an ad hoc song.
For the song to appear in CCLI reports, you must subsequently click on the Action menu on the right of the ad hoc song and select Add library item. This will enable you to add the song to your library and add a CCLI Number against the song and track song usage.
In the Reports section of the Planning module, the CCLI Report enables you to identify all library items of a Type that has CCLI tracking enabled and that have a CCLI number - typically songs.
Use the filters to select the relevant range of dates and the Type/s of library item you’d like to report on. Leaving the Type field blank will ensure that all CCLI-numbered Items are included in the results. It’s also possible to generate a report for a specific Service and to include Draft or Published Plans. Click Generate to apply the filters and see the matching results. The report can then be downloaded, printed or emailed to others.
