Understanding Projects

For creative and pitching teams, it's difficult to keep track of all the projects and opportunities that you’re pitching to (or trying to pitch to in the future). Whether your team is pitching for a cut on an artists' upcoming record, a placement on a Spotify playlist, or for the cover of a magazine — we’ve designed Projects and the Project Management tab to not only track your pitches, but to give you the ability to organize the relevant information about the label, A&R, marketing, and promotional projects around those pitches in one dashboard.

When creating a project, you're prompted to fill out some fields. Here's what they mean:  

  • Project Contact: Main contact for the project you're pitching to 
  • Artist: The artist whose album you're trying to get a cut on 
  • Label/ Organization: The label or organization you're pitching to 
  • Internal Contact: The main point person on your team for this project 
  • Deadline: Cutoff date for pitching for this project. You're able to opt in to receive notifications for when deadlines are approaching
  • Release Date: Date the project will be released. After entering in a date, you're able to select whether or not this date is an estimate or a confirmed date.
  • Note: A place for you to add any additional information relative to this project

Once the project is created, there will be additional fields on the edit view of that project. See "How do I edit an existing project?" Below is a list of the additional fields and what they're for: 

  • Attachments: A place for you to attach any files or documents relative to this project (screen shot of an email you received, etc) 
  • Notes & activity: Gives your creative team a historical view of a project from start to finish. Any changes made to the project, whether it's adding a status, changing the project details, etc, will automatically be documented in this section. You're also able to add or edit any additional notes. 
  • Song Statuses: Where you're able to reflect the status of the songs you've pitched for this project. See "Understanding Song Statuses" to learn more. 
  • Pitches: The tracked pitches you've sent out and linked to this project. See "How do I associate a pitch to a project?
  • Phase: At the top right of the project, there is a dropdown that allows you to choose whether or not this is an active / open project or if it's closed / expired.
