[Desktop][Your Library] Sort the list of playlists

Status: Implemented

I can’t be the only one with over 40 playlists. I would like an option to organise my playlists on desktop. 
You could add a button so that you can edit (like on phone) to organise playlists by alphabetical order, date added or whatever. 

yes I could take the time to drag every single one of my playlists into the right place, but I currently have like 40something. In a couple years when I probably have over 100 playlists, it will be unacceptable to have to drag and drop every single one to the right place.

There are posts on here from 2015 (five years ago now) about this exact same issue. Doesn't seem like much to ask for - just a feature that everyone would assume a good app like this would have. I have 100+ playlists and I'm supposed to sit there and alphabetize all 100+ of them??? I know how to sort the tracks in a playlist - stop sending me links for that. I want to sort ALL the playlists at once - the list of playlists. Help us out guys... PLEASE POST A REPLY SPOTIFY. NO ANSWER/UPDATE IN FIVE YEARS IS REDICULOUS!!

Hi, when will there be this option of arranging my playlists in alphabetical order? Do you know that when there are sites or apps that can arrange our playlists or folders in alphabetical order? So, why do you have this option? When will you install it? There is this option in terms of the names of the files in terms of their names or of the artists who created them (or even their albums, too bad it is not available in terms of the date it came out).

Yes!!! I would love this. Would be so nice since I know the names of my lists and wouldn't have to hunt for the list or create another new list.

Hello @idontcareihatey!

Have a nice day 🙂

It would be super amazing and convenient if the Spotify Desktop app had a quick, efficient way to be sorted OTHER than clicking and dragging each one individually

Mihail,

 

If you do as you suggest it does sort the Playlists in the main window BUT NOT in the Playlist column on the left hand side! Please fix this asap!! 

 

To make things totally clear - We want to sort the playlist column on the LEFT HAND SIDE alphabetically in one click - not dragging individual items around.

 

Surely it can't be that hard to do! 

 

PLEASE
