Post of the Week: Viewing Downloads on other devices




Happy Thursday everybody! It’s time for Post of the Week… 


This week’s post most deserving of the title came from the mind of Rising Star @toman95! With clarity and precision he solved the user’s issue in a single post.


Let’s take a look at what happened…

So; a user got in touch hoping to discover how to add local files from their computer, via Spotify, to their mobile phone. Like many of the answers required in the Community, the one this needed was pretty straight forward...

...however, where things can get tricky is in trying to unearth the questions themselves. Rising Stars, Rock Stars, Managers and Mods are all pretty plugged in to the world of Spotify; we speak the language. It’s easy to forget that the majority of users do not necessarily possess in-depth knowledge of the terminology, tech, and issues that surround the service. With that in mind, we have to expect most queries and questions require a translation of sorts - much easier said than done!



@toman95 has a knack for finding the eye of a help request and putting what’s most relevant in front of it. Check out his reply:

As you can see, he got back to the user with a simple, step-by-step guide explaining exactly what they’d need to do. It was also nicely rounded off with a ‘Have a great day’, adding to the positive side of the Community vibe.

From all of us here, thanks for the awesome help! As sign of our appreciation, we’ve added a month of Premium to your account - enjoy!
