I realise this is a few months old now but it's pretty clear I think:
- Desktop app (not mobile - no sane person attempts to manage playlists on the mobile app, its awful at it) - Imagine you have a sidebar with say 200 playlists. - Imagine you want to organise them - You create a folder, say.... "Work Playlists" and want to move 30 of those 200 playlists into that folder.
Current (horrible) way of doing it: - Drag each playlist one by one uuuup the sidebar, hoping the scroll bar doesnt freakout on you and shoot you past your new folder. - Drop the playlist - Find the next one in your big long list - Repeat the above.
If you use Spotify in a serious way you'll get how horribly frustrating playlist management is.
Desired Action: - Click 'Manage Playlists' somewhere - Create the new folder - Check the boxes next to each playlist you want to move - From an 'Actions' dropdown, go to "Move to..." which when you hover over shows a list of folders.
Given you guys seem to only employ 1 part time developer these days I'm going to assume much like every other suggestion on the forums that this will never happen.
Good sensible observation, thank you, I would like the same functionality you suggested, makes perfect sense! Also, once you move a playlist into a folder, and later want to move it to a different folder... good luck with that (impossible)!! Music library management in Spotify is like using something from the late 90's (and that's being kind).
Hey everyone, thanks for your posts on this! I'd recommend creating an idea here if this is something you'd like to see implemented in Spotify in the future. I notice similar ideas have been posted in the past but did not gain too much traction and are currently inactive, so it could be worth a try!
