Suggestion - More customizable playlist/album view

Hello,

 

I am an iTunes user, well soon to be ex-iTunes user as I love spotify so much now.

 

The only real preference to iTunes I have right now is the more customizable "view" of tracks, playlists, albums.

 

Now we have Track / Artist / Time / Album / Added / User - and you can't move them, or remove them, just resize right now.

 

iTunes has like 50 different options here.

 

Mainly though you can add or remove as many as you like.

 

But MOST of all the one I like best is the "played" which adds a column showing how many times you have played said track.

 

As I listen to lots of podcasts, audiobooks, and such this column is very useful so I can easily find out what I have or haven't listened to yet, especially in long lists of chapters etc.

 

Thanks!

 

Sorry if it's been suggested!

i AGREE, THERE'S NO WAY TO SORT, PLAYLISTS OR SONGS, AT LEAST NONE THAT i'VE FOUND

In terms of sorting songs in playlists, click on the one of the rows at the top of the playlist (Such as "Artist"), and this will sort by artist.

However, I'm pretty certain there has been some requests for the inclusion of more metadata. Just pop on over to our Ideas board to take a look - http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/idb-p/ideaexchange

I wish I could send a screen shot, I'm not seeing that option

If you have a playlist with different artists or albums, you can sort by any column by clicking on it. But indeed it isn't (yet) possible to add a 'Year' column (which would be nice 🙂 or something. I think sorting is only possible on the desktop version of spotify, not on mobile apps.

Completely agree - the playlist/album view needs to be a lot more customizable - particularly for the iphone app..

Searchig for a playlist/ album on itunes takes no time, whilst on the iphone with the spotify app it can only be sorted per date downloaded. It would be great if the playlists/albums could be sorted per album or artist name.

It would save me time and make the experience of the spotify app a lot more pleasant.

Is there any particular upgrade likely to happen with the iphone app concerning this?
