Collections

In your library, collections works like a set of scores. These scores can be the content that you created by yourself, content you uploaded to Flat, creations that you discovered on our platform or that have been shared with you.

To start organizing your content, choose New collection, and enter a name for your collection. Then, you can drag and drop your scores between collections, choose Move to/Add to a collection next to a score to move a score to another collection or add it to multiple collections.

Get started with collections

If you want to add a public score that you discovered to your account, choose “Add to a collection” from our public viewer:

Add any public sheet music to your collections

Collections are available for everyone and are only private at this time. We have plans to add public and shared collections in an upcoming update with the same sharing settings that your scores, stay tuned!

Sharing

To share a score with someone, click on sharing information, or choose Share from the actions list. From there, you can quickly see how the score is currently shared, and adjust the sharing settings.

Share scores from your Library

The scores shared with you are automatically added to your Shared with me collection. Like any of your scores, you can move them to another collection at your convenience. To leave a shared score that has been shared with you, delete it from your account.

Delete resources

To delete scores and collections, select them and click on Delete in the actions list. You also drag and drop scores to your trash.

Delete and recover content

Your trash contains all the deleted scores and collections, up to 1 year after their deletion. You can easily recover any of your deleted work from there. If you are a free demo user, you will only have access to the scores deleted in the last 24h. Get Flat Power or Flat for Education to recover older content.

FAQ

Why don’t I see the collections on my profile?

Collections are only private at this time. We will add public collections and sharing options in an upcoming update. Also, the profile will be updated to only display your public content.

Can I add a score to multiple collections?

Sure! Choose “Add to a collection” in the actions next to a score, and the new collection where you want to add the score.

You can also add any public and shared scores to your account from our public sheet music viewer, choose “Add to a collection” on the side of the screen.

Why there are no audio previews?

Audio previews are a great way to discover new creations without having to open the sheet music. They are now only available for public scores on the discovery and search result pages.

I don’t see the deleted scores in my trash, why?

If you are a free demo user, you will only see the content deleted during the last 24h. You can upgrade to a regular account to recover work up to 1 year after its deletion.

If you are a Flat Power or Flat for Education account, at this time you can recover any content deleted after December 2017.

How can I create sub-collections, like subfolders?

That’s not possible at this time and we don’t have plans for that yet. We see collections more like a set of scores or a playlist of songs, with a single level and powerful features. That’s why we didn’t add this complexity at this time. If you need to organize scores like that, we advise you to prefix your collections with a common name.

Which scores count in my storage quota?

All the scores that you create counts in your storage quota. Content that has been shared with you, as well as public and shared scores that you add to your collections, don’t count in your storage quota.
