Beatport chart tracking?

There are a few sites that already do it, but would be great resource to have Beatport chart tracking inside Soundsystem.

        Beatport charts aren't territory specific: there is only a track and release chart for each genre and the homepage. This doesn't get broken down by country.

        >The Retza remix of Melt is good example. I have screen grabs that it made to No.5 in Deep House releases, yet only showed at No.6 on all the chart sites.

        This sounds more like an error with the chart sites to correctly cache Beatport on the day the track was at #5.

        I agree, and would love to keep track not only of charts but feature placement too. Definitely noted, and I'd be curious if other label managers vote on your feature request here. :)

        Until then, bptoptracker.com is a great alternative!

        I guess the thing is, the more you can have in one dashboard, the less clicking around you have to do. Also, one thing I've found is that those services are location specific - they often don't show accurate charts for different territories.

        The Retza remix of Melt is good example. I have screen grabs that it made to No.5 in Deep House releases, yet only showed at No.6 on all the chart sites. I emailed them about it and they said it had to do the territory they were tracking.

        Inside Proton would make it super easy to prepare feature requests and the like, but totally understand it's not super high priority.
