[All Platforms][Playlists] Invitation Only Collaborative Playlists

Both public and even private collaborative playlists can be "vandalized", since there are no options to manage them.

 

My idea is distinct from the existing one, because it has details on the options that users should have for managing their collaborative playlists and collaborators.

 

To solve this, there needs to be an invitation method, similar to the collaborative documents in Google Docs. After you click "Make Collaborative", there should be a window that pops up that allows you to put in the usernames or e-mail addresses of who you want to collaborate on the playlist. Then, you can select "Can view", "Can add & delete", or even just "Can add". Obviously, no matter what, people would still be able to delete songs that they've added. The "can view" option would be for listening only. This should send a notification, directly through Spotify, or show the playlist on the homepage or in your music library. The notification could be "Invitation To Collaborate" (not invite (a verb) to collaborate), or "You've been invited to collaborate on...", which would be nice to see. Anytime you chose one of the third party sharing options, "Can view", "Can add & delete", and "Can add" should pop up. Also, in this window, it should have the option to copy the link, like normal. This way, you can paste it and embed it, for other avenues of sharing.

 

For further managing of collaborators, once they've accepted the invitations, you should be able to toggle or pick one of these three options, next to their usernames, once you tap the users listed.

 

Sharing done by anyone else, other than the playlist creator, will create a "Can view" link, like with any non-collaborative playlist.
