How to handle Liturgy now that Liturgy manager is gone

So I have read in another thread, that the Liturgy manager was removed because not many churches use it apparently. I can say that we have not in the past, but we have a new team taking on the creation and management of our service queues and we want to work in the most efficient way. I was aware of the Liturgy Manger in the past version so I started by looking for that. Since it is gone, I thought that using just the Cue library is the way we would need to go. The problem I have with this is the cue library seems like it will end up being where we have everything saved. Since there is no real cue type for liturgy, it ends up with other text elements that we will have saved so sorting with the filter only helps a little bit.

Maybe I still need to better understand working with the Lyric library, but so far I have not been able to save songs we download from SongSelect to that library after modifying for how we perform the songs(adding choruses in different places etc...). So in the end all of our lyrics end up in the cue library as well.

So my question is, from MediaShout's or other users perspectives what is the best way to manage Liturgy and keep everything organized and easy to put together a service? Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hey Brian!

Great question! I personally have recommended using the Cues Library as you are doing now. What happens is when you save that cue, it goes into that library under the "Cue Name" that you've given it. You can search in that library by name, so say you have something labeled "Liturgy Number 1" you should be able to find that rather easily!

At the moment, the cues library seems to be the best option in this scenario!

Thanks Ben, I know I have seen on the forum from another member the thought/request to have a custom cue type option. It would be nice to have a Liturgy label even if the cue would just be a text cue for Liturgy, at least it would help with filtering. Hopefully the development team is taking that into consideration for future enhancements.

Happy New Year!

For years we've treated various liturgies as lyrics which helps some, yet being able to categorize them a liturgies in the cue library would help a lot!

Yeah, I agree for sure. That would make a lot of sense. I hope we can get this in at some point! :)
