Security controls / allow multiple leads

It would be great if when publishing a playlist, that computer or tablet would have the ability to determine what rights the other systems that join it have. For instance: maybe I start the playlist from the computer that's attached to the projector, and I want to be able to edit the list from my tablet, but not from the tablet in front of the piano player. I think something as simple as having a "follow only" setting would be great.

In addition, I'd really like to be able to have multiple systems able to control the lead simultaneously. In another request, I noted my footswitch which sends keystrokes to the computer. I use this to control the presentation. Once in a while, it would be nice to reach up to my tablet and make a change. If I take the lead on my tablet, then my footswitch no longer controls anything because the computer it talks to is now just following. Allowing both systems to share the lead would make my life a whole lot easier.

Thanks again!

Re: Security controls / allow multiple leads

I like the ideas, but I'm not sure how that would be implemented into the software.  Would it be possible to use a touch screen tablet (Windows 8 Tablet) with the foot pedal attached?  That would solve the problem of the lead being switch between two devices since everything would be controlled by one, if you have access to that type of hardware.

That may be the best possible

That may be the best possible answer. I've been thinking about picking up a Surface anyway. So I that know, does the regular windows version of the software respond to finger swipes for next/previous song? Not a huge deal, but I'm curious.

Thanks!

Yes, the Desktop version responses to certain swipes.  If in the "project whole song" mode swipes work quite well.  When set to "verse by verse" the touch screen responds to tapping song selections.

Just a note, you would need to get the Surface Pro to run the Desktop version since the baseline Surface only has Windows 8 RT.  Let me know if you have any other questions.
