SongSelect is owned by Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI). If you are an active license holder of a CCLI license for your church or organization then you have the option of purchasing a subscription to SongSelect. An Advanced subscription ($157.00 USD/ Year) to SongSelect plus a CCLI license is required for full access to SongSelect.
For more information about CCLI and SongSelect, visit www.ccli.com.
If you have access to SongSelect, ProPresenter can store the registration information for you and provide direct access to SongSelect through the program. This makes it easy to get songs from SongSelect without having to leave ProPresenter.
To use SongSelect, please make sure that the Show House of Worship Integrations option is enabled in the General tab of ProPresenter Preferences. You will be prompted to login to your account upon first searching in the QuickSearch window or by going to the Services tab of ProPresenter Preferences and clicking the Login button under SongSelect.
Importing from SongSelect
ProPresenter allows you to search for songs from SongSelect in the QuickSearch window. To do this, click on Search in the toolbar or go to File>Import>SongSelect... to access this window. You can search here by title, author, keywords, or CCLI number.
Once you search for a song, you can highlight it and a preview will show of the song lyrics and then simply click Import to begin the import process of the file.
Songs downloaded from SongSelect are also stored in a CCLI Reporting file. You can access this file in the General tab of ProPresenter Preferences by clicking Reporting in the bottom right corner of the window. This file can be exported and/or reset at any time and shows the date the file was downloaded, the title of the file, author, publisher, copyright year and CCLI number for the song.
Auto-Reporting with SongSelect
Upon logging into SongSelect via the services tab of ProPresenter Preferences, you will see the option below to enable Auto-Reporting. You can also choose to "Manually Report" and still export a report of usage manually.
When enabled, you can view a usage report by clicking on "CCLI Reporting" in the General tab of ProPresenter Preferences. That report will look like this:
You will see that on the right hand side of this window, there is a "Reported" option which can show a few different colors.
If it is GREEN, this means that this has been auto reported already.
If it is YELLOW, this means that auto report is Pending or In Progress.
If it is RED, this means that you are either not signed into SongSelect or not connected to the internet.
If it is WHITE, this means that this song was selected when Auto-Reporting was not enabled.
Finally, there is an option in the bottom right of this window to manually export your usage report.
If Auto Reporting is enabled, reporting songs happens immediately, once per day per song, when a slide is triggered in a presentation that has a CCLI Number associated with it, and a valid SongSelect account is signed in. We've worked closely with CCLI to ensure automatic reporting of songs works inline with their established reporting expectations.
