[Your Music] Folder Organization

Currently, folder creation is limited to playlists. This makes the "Save to Your Music" functionality within Spotify unusable -- a major drag when the only alternative is to save albums as playlists, creating album v. playlist ambiguity within the navbar (see attached image.)


Proposed solution -- as a Spotify user, I should be able to:

  • create folders within the “Albums” tab of "Your Music."
  • nest "Albums" folders within one another. 
  • drag-and-drop "Saved" album objects into the folders within "Albums" section of "Your Music."

I wrote about this scope in more detail here.

I have the feeling that Spotify is not really listening or even caring about what the users what. Organizing albums in folders should not be a very big feature to implement. I will leave Spotify soon because this very basic feature is missing. Other companies are improving their products with new features. Spotify seems to go the other way: They are even removing features. And the Windows client has still some serious bug. I am disappointed.




Ok, so im not the only one this should be standard. I would like to look at my collection with a similar organziation to my case logic cd case back in the day. I just want to see a big list of options organized however i want. I do not want to see on track list lined up one after another while conitnuously scroll and scroll until i find an album i want to listen to.

Spotify clearly don't give one toss of a salad about the user interface. A high school student could do better.

I also love how you can click Songs and then there's a big Play button at the top. What kind of madman would use that? Oh yeah, screw it. Just give me anything Spotify. I don't care!


I soooooooooooooooooooooooooo agree that Folders in Albums are a necessity!!!!!!!!


Now that I have a loooong list of albums, they are all mixed in the list and finding some music for a particular mood (study, morning, upbeat, etc...) is unnecessarily tedious.


PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Spotify!! Add the same functionality that already exists in Playlist!!!


Can you only save music if you are a premium member? I hit "save" and then don't know where to find it.


Please reconsider this. I have all of these albums I want to keep track of, but I just end up removing albums I save because the albums folder becomes too cluttered. I want to create folders like: 

"My Favorite Albums of All Time", "My Favorite Electronic Albums", "Nostalgic Albums", "Albums I Haven't Listened to yet.", "New Albums".... etc... without having to lump all of those songs into one big playlist.


It's honestly insane that this feature doesn't exist and that you write it off so blithely... Stuff like this makes me consider cancelling my Spotify account.

Come on Spotify. Why is it taking you so long to come up with a way for people to arrange their albums? Using folders or tagging with genres to allow sorting would make the saving of albums a much more useful thing. Until then, its pretty much necessary to dump albums into playlists if you want to sort them, which defeats the whole point of being able to save albums...

Apparently, Spotify does not **bleep** about what the users want. I also have the feeling that nobody is available if there are any technical problems. This is really poor for a multi-billion dollar company. We should find more users to support this feature, and be open that we will otherwise cancel our subscription. But to be honest, I think they even would not care if it were several thousand cancelling at the same time.
