Hey everybody! Last week we took a look at the new database we'll be debuting soon but we didn't go into details, so today we're gonna see why this is really a game changer. Plus, if you're an author, the Scheduler is here!
The power of C3db: filtering and sorting
The new database has some very powerful filtering options that you can configure so that they are always applied without having to re-configure them every time. As you can see from this screenshot you will be able to filter by almost anything, including instrument, source, vocals gender and reductions.
You can also simply choose multiple options like so
Once you're done, your filtering options will be displayed to the side of the Configure button, so you always know that the songs you're seeing are filtered:
The configuration filters are not the only way to browse through the songs. Almost every metadata can be used to filter the database. Every text in blue you see in this screenshot is a link, which means that if you click on:
you get to see only songs by that artist, of that genre, of that year, etc. You can also filter by author in the same way. And that's not all: you can click on difficulty dots to filter songs for that difficulty for that instrument!
On top of flitering you can sort the DB by any field, not only the ones pictured in the screenshot above: you can for example also sort by difficulty for every instrument.
Next Monday we'll take a look at how cool the Song page is!
Here comes the Scheduler!
C3X Authors, the one place to plan your releases is finally ready. It's choke full of options and it will make you want to contribute as much as possible to this project! In the next hours we will roll out this amazing new tool so you can start plan your way through our first Tour.
See you all next Monday!
