Requests Hoster (mobile) - Inbox Tab
The Inbox is where incoming requests or cancellations appear. From here, you can add requests to singer folders, delete requests, and accept cancellations.
When something new arrives, the Inbox tab flashes to alert you.
At a minimum, requests contain the singer's name, + song title and artist. If extra info is included eg pitch/key, extra names, disc version etc, this info will appear too.
Singers see the status of each request in the Requests folder on their phones as follows - Pending (request on it's way, but hasn't reached your phone yet), DJ Received (request is in your Inbox, but you haven't taken any action yet), DJ Added (you've added their request to a singer folder).
Any requests you delete from the Inbox, Rotation or Playlist screens are deleted from the system and singers's phone.
Adding a request that came from the SongbookDB network
- Click the ADD button next to the request.
- If you haven't created a singer folder to add this request to, a dialog will open to create one. It defaults to naming the folder the same as the singer, but you can choose to enter a different name, or add the reuqest to someone else's folder. You can also choose (for this session) to always add future requests for this singer to this folder when you hit ADD on their incoming requests, as opposed to having to create a new folder.
Adding a walk-up request from a paper slip
This is done via the Rotation screen
When a singer cancels a request, it appears in the Inbox coloured orange, with the heading CANCELLED BY REQUESTER. Clicking OK will delete the request from the Inbox, Rotation and Playlist screens.
