How do I set a default publishing agreement for a writer?

Setting a default publishing agreement for a songwriter makes it easier for you when crediting that writer on a song and saves you time in the long run. The set default agreement will be automatically selected when you credit the writer on any song in your catalog, meaning you won't have to manually select it each time.

Here's how to set a default publishing agreement for a writer:

1.  In your Network, hover over the contact and click the Details button. This will show you some simple details on the writer.
