Lilac Writer's New Collaboration Tool - The Sharing Tab

New Feature , Collaboration Add comments

Many if not most of the best songs written are co-written. Co-writers work in different ways - music and lyrics, inspiration and craft, build and polish. Co-writing is often the difference between a hit song and a forgotten song. Without co-writing 1000's of song starts would never even be finished.

Lilac Writer enables collaboration with the Sharing tab on each lyric project.



On the Sharing tab click "Invite Collaborators".



Enter the collaborator's email address and any message you would like to send with the invitation.



You can currently share a lyric with up to 10 collaborators.

NOTE: Collaborators must have a Lilac Writer account. If you want to collaborate with someone who isn't yet part of the beta group, you can invite them to be part of the Beta group by sending us their email address using the Contact Us form. We will invite them to the beta.

  • Collaborators can see and edit the lyric, ideas, and rhymes in your lyric project.
  • Collaborators can also check off completed To-do Actions or enter new ones.
  • Collaborators can download files and upload new files. They cannot delete any files you uploaded.
  • Collaborators cannot change the title
  • Collaborators cannot delete your lyric. If they do delete it, the lyric is no longer shared with them.
  • Tags are private. The owner and collaborator can both add tags independently to organize lyrics
  • A shared lyric is automatically tagged with "Shared" by the system for both owners and collaborators.

Sharing gives you lots of tools to interact with the lyric along with your co-writers.

One key feature of Lilac Writer that makes this work is the automatic revision history on the Revisions tab. If you or your co-writer takes the song in the wrong direction, you can go back to any previous save and bring it back very easily. You can also use revisions to see who contributed what to the song!



The new collaboration tools are great for distance collaboration or collaboration in the same room. It is a major new feature of Lilac Writer that takes it one step closer to becoming an indispensable songwriting tool!

Happy Songwriting!
