Undoubtedly one of the most productive and credible databases for the music industry, Chartmetric is always searching for ways to improve the user’s workflow.
Chartmetric is a long-term partner of Digital Music News — we’re proud to jointly share this massive announcement.
Chartmetric has launched its new feature, Shortlists, making personalized music insights more accessible and easily trackable. With Shortlists, Chartmetric’s goal is simple: allow users to simplify and amplify insights management.
Achieving More With Customization Of Your Workspace
With the extensive data and insights Chartmetric provides, monitoring multiple artists can quickly become overwhelming. Focusing on that aspect, Chartmetric’s Shortlists allows users to ‘shortlist’ various artists and display that data in a manner that’s easy to keep track of. These customized lists can contain insights for as many artists as a user requires and display strictly the data needed for that user’s specific workflow.
Akash Mukherjee, Head of Product at Chartmetric, explains that a comprehensive analysis of the Chartmetric user base revealed the need for Shortlists.
“Chartmetric’s team realized that many of their customers had created their lists on streaming platforms or built their own on Google Sheets to have the right data centralized somewhere,” Mukherjee relayed, adding, “Now Chartmetric centralizes the data in one place.”
In essence, Shortlists creates a database within the more extensive Chartmetric database. By allowing this customization of data displays, Shortlists offers more convenient tracking of multiple artists’ evolution — simultaneously. Users can create several shortlists, and these customizable views can be saved and reused to suit user objectives.
For example, if you’re managing a record label, creating shortlists to filter tracks and albums through “Top Submissions” or “Collaboration Candidates” could help make opportunities more easily visible.
For managers, “Remix Opportunities” or “Album Considerations” are among the more preferred filters, whereas curated lists such as “Opening Acts” or “Underground Gems” are more prevalent among promoters.
A More Productive View of Your Catalog
For a user that tracks insights of multiple artists, setting up a personalized view of data is only one of many key Shortlists features that could facilitate higher productivity.
Shortlists’ “Noteworthy Insights” creates a quick overview of data points requiring users’ attention each week. Chartmetric’s AI engine and data science power these insights. Over the years, this AI has developed into a steady resource that allows Chartmetric to extract the most valuable insights according to the algorithm.
These AI-powered insights are displayed on the Chartmetric homepage, offering users a global idea of artist developments at a glance. Users can do away with most of their usual management tasks once they create these customized lists with Shortlists.
What’s Next for Chartmetric’s Shortlists?
Shortlists is a private feature, meaning that users’ customized shortlists are not visible to anyone else and are not shareable.
Mukherjee says the next step (coming very soon) will be to build bridges for collaboration. Chartmetric will achieve this goal by introducing sharing capabilities for shortlists, with team members gaining permissions and rights to edit.
“Our goal is to meet our customers where they are and extend their existing curation workflows,” explained Mukherjee, adding, “We will be building integrations with tools such as Spotify, Google Sheets, and more to allow users to import Shortlists into Chartmetric.”
With Shortlists, Chartmetric is taking the necessary steps to reduce the friction for their users.
Shortlists will soon allow direct imports of the lists users have created on streaming platforms and Google Sheets. Bringing these lists onto the Chartmetric workspace will give users a smoother, less complicated workflow.
