Proclaim is super simple. It’s the centralized solution to all your presentation needs. Proclaim lets you arrange lyrics, outlines, and images from anywhere, anytime. When you’re ready to present, just click On Air. No more last-minute presentation nightmares. Proclaim brings collaboration back to the table, so you and your service team can add to and edit your presentation throughout the week. Proclaim preps itself. No need to copy and paste lyrics anymore. Proclaim imports your order of service from Planning Center Online. With live internet at your venue, Proclaim signals allow you to send Scriptures and donation requests to mobile devices in your congregation.

The purpose of this document is to provide a common training document for Proclaim to setup and use their proclaim online accounts.

Adding videos to the presentation:

Uploading Video

Proclaim supports .mp4, .m4v, .mov, .wmv, .avi, .asf and .mpg/.mpeg video formats.
Streaming Video

Streaming sites allow users to customize video playback by manipulating the URL used to view that particular video.

First, I’ll list the URL in standard format displayed for that site, then the formatting of the full screen video version and finally an example of a URL formatted correctly to display a full screen video by default.

Editing/Adding Songs to the database

There are some automatically-generated and recognized tags, such as chorus, verse or bridge.
Also, you can create your own custom tags by surrounding the tag by square brackets, like this: [tag], [vamp], etc

File Upload

Click on Accounts> Upload Files to upload files for use, browse to file and select it.
Selecting a file (or files) to upload queues a background upload job which completes asynchronously.
While the file is being uploaded a local file placeholder is used, allowing you to continue editing the presentation as if the upload was instantaneous.
Added global tags and loop settings to multi-file upload.
