If you want to give someone access to your music (we call them a 'subscriber'), you can do one of two things:
- Share with them you artist URL including the access token (eg. https://promo.guru/artist-slug/7914B936) - they will just have to provide their email.
- Share with them your artist URL (eg. https://promo.guru/artist-slug) and an access token: they will then have to provide their email address and the access token.
Once a subscriber has done that, they will get a one-time link by email. Clicking on that will give them access to your promos. The subscriber will then appear under your 'Subscribers' tab. If you have a paid subscription you will be able to track what they download when.
From then on, the subscriber doesn't need to use your access token again - it's just to give them that initial access. They can simply log in to Promo Guru in future (again, using a one-time link - we don't use passwords).
Access tokens for paid users
If you have a paid subscription, access tokens can be set to expire on a certain date and you can create unlimited tokens.
Once a token expires, no one else can use it. All associated subscribers can still access your music however (you could then disabled the token, or manually disable them individually).
If you disable a token, no one else can use it - and you can choose whether to disable the associated subscribers or not. You can re-enable the token if you need (and any associated subscribers that are disabled).
Access tokens for free users
If you have a free account, you have a single access token - but this can be deleted if necessary so you can create another one. When delete a token, the associated subscribers still have access (but you can manually disable their access if you wish on the Subscribers tab).
If you want have a paid subscription, you can control which tracks each access token has access to. There are 3 modes:
Anyone using this token will have access to all your tracks and releases, including anything new you publish.
Control which category someone using the token will see. You could let only a small circle of trusted subscribers have access to unreleased material for example. If you add new tracks to a category, a relevant token will automatically have access to them.
Choose the exact tracks someone using the token has access to. You might want to create a token to share a couple of very specific tracks with someone for example.
Note that the releases tab is just a different view of your music. So if you have given an access token access to a single track from a release, that release will be visible to those subscribers - but with just the one track in it.
