[Desktop][Playlists] sort by recently added on desktop

the new Spotify desktop update is gorgeous but there are a few issues w/ sort by recently added 

 

  1. collaborative playlists don't have a visible option to sort by recently added. I can click "date added" under the drop down menu as an option to sort my playlist, but it sorts from first added -> last added. 
  2. all playlists will "reset" the order they are shown in, no matter how I sort it. I always sort my playlists by recently added, but if I restart the app or come back to a playlist after some time, it will reset to default view

Same here. Grateful for the solution added but the UI is incomplete if this is the only option. The UI offers a solution of date added in the drop down menu, but one should be able to have that reversed as well. Clicking it another time for example.

 

I hope Spotify is taking these issues in consideration in future updates. 

 

Best y'all!

[Desktop][Developer] Reverse Sort Playlist by date added - New Desktop App

Hi, 

 

I have a shared playlist with my brother who lives 1000's of miles away and we both add new music. I like to listen to the newest stuff we've both found and on the old app I'd just reverse sort by date added. This doesn't seem possible on the new app as the column for date added has disappeared, so while you can sort by date added, you can't reverse it. 

 

It would be great to have that reinstated in some way. 

 

Thanks, 

 

Nick

I have the same wish that It will return soon, although it was removed from the last update. I think for many people it has some emotional aspect to it as well, seeing when the songs were added- rest of the data regarding duration, title etc one can always find somewhere else, but the 'date added' is something only my Spotify knows and can tell me. Please return it. Thank you!

Can you put back ordering the playlist by date added but by most recently added?

This was originally an option and still is at least on iOS. But for reasons unknown to me, it has been removed on the desktop. If that could be added back, that'd be great!

Why had the 'date added' disappeared? what is the point of taking features away? I used this all the time 😞

Hey there folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community!

 

You should still be able to sort playlists by date added in reverse order on the New Desktop App. Just click on the header until the green arrow points upwards:

If you don't see the DATE ADDED column in your playlist view, you might need to maximize/enlarge the window as @King2D- has suggested, or try zooming out (3-dot menu > View > Zoom Out) if you prefer to keep the size of the window.

 

In case this doesn't work for you, we'd recommend following the steps here for a clean reinstall to be sure that you have the latest version.

 

Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on and give us a shout if have any further questions 🙂
