Good God, yes, what an idiotic thing to do, to leave all the playlists sitting there with random listing, so you have to scroll through 3 million artists to find what you want. 

 

DUMB.

You should be able to sort by date added and by alphabet . Really all other music services can do this . If you add a lot of playlists like I do , I have to go to my computer to manually sort cause you can't do it on the iPhone or ipad . This cannot be that hard to implement

Don't get too lazy Spotify , Apples next move after ITunes Radio may be a full fledged music
subscription . I'm guessing they will have stuff
alphabetized when it arrives

Would be a very useful feature - especially if you could sort it by artist, album or track name

You seemt to be talking about track and not playlist sorting. You can sort tracks in the desktop client by clicking on any of the title bars. Clicking on one of these a second time switches to sorting by descending and a third time turns the sorting off.

I have over 300 playlists and manage to keep them all alphabetized manually..  Once you do it the first time, its not that tough to keep them sorted.

 

Also, I don't want the Spotify software ordering by first name or "the" or anything like that.  A manual sort assured you have them the way you want them.

 

In the time you spent writing your message you could have had it don already.

This is frustratingly missing from the desktop client (I really don't see why it isn't in there, it's pretty elementary functionality), but I noticed today that it does exist on the Android Spotify client.

Hey! I had same problem! I fixed it by:

 

1. On computer, sort all songs in the your folder alphabetically.

 

2. Make a "new folder" and transfer all the songs into the new folder, make sure your songs are categorized the way you want.

 

3. --!!Do this part fast!!--
Delete all SONGS in old folder (NOT THE FOLDER, JUST THE SONGS),
and quickly transfer them back before you have to sync all songs again.


!!NOTE!!
All songs in my folder is categorized, by artist names now.
If i add more songs to folder, they will not categorize themself automatecly.

 

Please get this done!

I am very surprised that the playlists were ever NOT in alphabetical order....this just seems like a nobrainer.  Expecting customers to scroll through their entire playlist colection for an artist or track just seems archaic.  Please move this feature to the top of the list of Spotify improvements.

JUST SAY NO to automated automatic alphabetized sorting of ANYTHING.

 

If implemented, Spotify will break the existing ability to drag songs and playlists to the users desired order. 

 

Albums and tracks will be out of proper sequence within playlists.  My "The Doors" playlist will be sorted by "T" rather than "D"

 

Dragging works just fine.  LEAVE THIS FEATURE ALONE.  DON'T FIX SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T NEED FIXING. 

 

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.
