An Album (also known as a "Release") is a Music Asset that an Organization owns or exploits under license.
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.
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.

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.
