We released a new Associated Resources Count column on the Contracts list on order to visualize the number of Tracks/Works/Videos the Contract is linked to.
This will help you to better organize your Contract list and know for example which Contract is used or can be deleted.
We also added a dedicated filter for this.
From now on, the Contracts are mandatory to determine the Royalty Splits allocated to Assets. Therefore, you will have to create a Contract for each Right Holder, then this Contract must be associated with the Assets of the Rights Holder.
This new method is not only easier and faster but above all, greatly improves Contract and Royalty management features and flexibility in future Balances per Contract, Cross-Collateralization, Escalations, and more new features.
We are convinced that this process highly simplifies the management of royalties and significantly limits entry errors.
How does it work?
Step 1: Adding a Contract
To create a Contract, go to the navigation menu on the left, open the "Rights Manager" section and click on the "Contracts" list. Then, click on the orange button "New Contract" located at the top right of the list and select one of the options in the drop-down list.
Step 2: Adding Royalty Splits to the Contract
Royalty Split is the percentage of Royalty shared between an Organization and a third party - a Payer or a Payee - such as a Supplier, a Customer, or a Right Holder.
To add or edit Royalty Splits, open a Contract and go to the Details > Terms tab.
For each Royalty Split Types, enter a Royalty Base Rate (in percent) to the Right Holder.
Step 3: Associating Contracts with Assets
Select one or more Tracks, Works or Videos to which you want to assign a Contract. Right-click "Edit" then go to the "Royalties" tab of the edit panel that opened.
Add one or more Contracts you want to assign to these Tracks, Works or Videos.
If needed, apply an Adjustment Rate (in percent) to add or remove percentages from the Royalty Base Rate.
Since our change which requires having a contract on each Income you create, we added some new columns on the Income list.
Money In Contract, for all types of Incomes
Money Out Contract, for Incomes of type Direct Income
There is also 2 new columns for the Direct Income type, Payees and Splits.
Playlists for business
We just released the ability to duplicate any album or playlist in a matter of seconds.
All users with the "create/edit" permission in Audio Manager and Playlist for Business can access this new feature.
We added a new Lyrics field on Tracks and Works.
It allows you to store that information in Reprtoir to have everything centralized.
Lyrics are also displayed on Tracks and Works panes and we also added a Lyrics filter in your Tracks and Works lists.
We are really happy to announce the support of the CWR (Common Works Registration) format within Reprtoir.
We developed the export so you can now select some Works in your list and then export them into the CWR format.

This will be especially useful for CWR exports of your Works.
