Albums

What is an Album?

An Album (also known as a "Release") is a Music Asset that an Organization owns or exploits under license.
Please note in Reprtoir, "Release" is dedicated to exploited Albums.

Adding an Album

To add an Album, go to the navigation menu on the left, open the "Audio Management" section and click on the "Albums" list. Then click on the orange button "New Album" located at the top right of the list and choose "Manual Entry" in the drop-down list.
This will open a pop-up window with multiple tabs to enter the metadata needed to add a new Album. Please go to the Tabs section below to learn more.
Tips: When you have finished adding an Album, Reprtoir will automatically suggest you add a Track. If so, click here to learn how to add a Track.
To save the new Album, click on the orange button "Save" located at the bottom right of the pop-up window. The new Album will then be immediately available in the "Albums" list. To stop the action, click on the grey "Cancel" button next to it.

Adding Albums in bulk

Albums can be added in bulk thanks to the dedicated template in Reprtoir Sheets, a collaborative and smart online spreadsheet tool that works exactly like Google Spreadsheets or Office 365 but specifically designed for Reprtoir metadata bulk importation. To find out more, follow the link below.
Alternatively, Releases Importer let import Releases already published on streaming services like Spotify in a blink of an eye. So you won't waste your time recreating them manually in Reprtoir. To find out more, follow the link below.

Advantages and disadvantages of these methods

Reprtoir Sheets allows you to structure your data and import at once not only the fields required by Reprtoir but also your own Tag structure. Its downside is that it could be quite time-consuming depending on the metadata to import.
The advantages of Releases Importer are exactly the opposite. It is very fast to import metadata but it is limited to what is available in streaming services.
Both solutions are very effective. We advise taking the time to test the best solution for your own usage. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us using the Chat available at the bottom right of your screen in your Workspace, or by email at:[email protected]

Editing Albums

To edit an Album (or several at a time), go to the navigation menu on the left, open the "Audio Management" section and click on the "Albums" list. Select one or more Albums in the list, point them and click right (or click on the three dots icon
located on the right side of the line when you hover it) and then click on the "Edit" action in the opened contextual menu.
This will open a pop-up at the right of the Workspace to mass edit the Albums metadata. To learn more about the "Mass Actions" feature, follow the link below:
To save the modification(s), click on the orange "Save" button located at the bottom right of the pop-up window. The modification(s) will then be immediately available in the Albums list. To stop the action, click the gray "Cancel" button next to it.

Adding Tracks to an Album

There are three methods to add one or several Tracks to an Album:

1. Create it

2. Drag and drop them

3. Copy-Paste them
