Band Pencil's Band Builder allows you to keep track of which musicians have been booked and who's still left to book in.
🆕 To assign a musician to multiple instruments, separate the instruments by a comma e.g. "Trombone, Piano"
🆕 You can now sort the Band Builder Overview.
To get started you'll need to add a band template. To add a new template, edit a template, or duplicate a current template:
You can add a default template to your band, so when you add a new event the band template will automatically be added to the event.
Three things you need to be aware of:
Once you've added a template you can link it to an event, to do this:
You can see your line up on the event and on the event overview page.
When you hover over a musician it will tell you their current availability status and instrument.
We also have a colour coding chart:
Where there are no musicians booked (and there should be one) it will say MISSING. If no musician needs to be booked for that instrument a dash "-" will be shown. If you have someone who is assigned to the event, but the band builder can't match their instrument, they will be shown in the Extras column.
