How do I edit or update my approved release?

A little editing is what you need, look below and have a read! 📖

We have a system in place where any changes you’ve made to an already approved release are automatically sent to update moderation for review. Your release remains approved, but the updates made need to be reviewed before we can send the updated release to your selected platforms.

Please note that if you edit your release within 24hrs of the approval date, this could temporarily halt the distribution process as further moderation is required.

If you’re waiting for a Release Date, this could be compromised upon making any changes. So if you do wish to make changes, it’s easier to do this when your release is already live on stores.

Here’s how to make your edits!

First, you’ll need to log in to your RouteNote account. Hover over Distribution to see see some drop-down options, then click on Discography.

Find the release you need to update in the Approved section of your discography.

Once you have opened your release, you should see a page that looks like the image below. From here, you can edit your album details, artwork, store selections and track details.

Please note – you cannot make audio changes, e.g. adding new audio, replacing existing audio or deleting audio.

When you’ve finished making changes to your release, click the Done button – this will send your release back to our moderation team for review.

How to edit your track metadata on an approved release

To edit your track metadata, click on View Track Details as highlighted above.

Upon opening your track, please click Edit at the bottom of the page – this allows you to make changes to your track metadata.

From here, you will be able to make any necessary changes to your track Metadata.

Don’t forget to click ‘Save and Continue‘, or the changes made to your track metadata will not save.

After you’ve saved your updates and sent them to our moderation team, your release should look a little like this:

In the meantime, feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns!
