    Hello All!

    My catalog on BMI has now gone to over 700 titles… this is because a famous RF co. registered all my tracks on their site to my BMI account… this forms about 650 tracks from that famous RF site alone.

    Yesterday, I noticed that my BMI registrations had gone up by 1. But, there is no way (that I know of) to find out what track that is and which company registered it. Going through 700 entries with the naked eye is not a laughable task (or maybe it is… LOL)

    Does anyone know any method to sort the BMI catalog digitally and make finding new entries simpler?

    Thank you! πŸ™‚

    No but you can contact them and they will send you a spreadsheet/csv file of all your registrations. That might help.

    When using the BMI catalog search window, here is a workaround I have used to see the most current registrations.

    Title and/or Participant – Select this one
    Include background cues – Uncheck this one
    Include registered works – Select this one
    Last Name/Publisher – Type in your last name (or a particular publisher)
    Registration Date: Put in the date you want to search from (09/15/2020)

    With this search criteria, only the current registrations will show up based on the date you enter.

    NEVERMIND!! I see you are searching from inside your account, and not from the BMI Repertoire search on the front page of there website. Got it!! Thanks

    Brian, I can’t find those choices on the BMI Repertoire search engine. Can you (or someone else who pulled this off) link to the page you’re searching on? I tried a couple different browsers, and I just don’t have those options. Thanks.
