[Web Player][Playlists] Playlist directories/folders

This idea was submitted and closed, but I find managing my playlists VERY difficult in the apps and impossible in the web player since I can't manage my folders there. In fact, it's just a jumbled list of ALL my playlists so I can't even FIND the playlists I need (sorted by ambiguous genres that make sense to only me in seperate folders). Seeing as I use Spotify SPECIFICALLY for the ability to make playlists, this would add a world of usability to the service.  Everytime I consider giving up Spotify it's because of the buggy playlist management interfaces and I just feel it would be easier to have a simple drag/drop/rename system supported in the webplayer. Basically the only thing missing for this to be a reality is folders in the web player playlist view.
Can we please add playlist folders to the web player?

 

You'd have me for life if you made an easy to use playlist interface, and I think the web player is the best candidate for this.  It'll make playlists so much more manageable in general.

Hey folks, 

 

We just wanted to give you a heads up that Playlist folders are now available on the Webplayer.

With the future of apps going the direction of PWAs (Progressive Web Apps). We need this ability.

Please add folder support to the web version!

Please do this. Would likely flow through to be useful for third party apps like Djay 2.

 

I use folders extensively to keep track of my listening queue and to manage favorites for the year, so i just get a huge, unordered list of playlists.

Thanks Tom! I noticed this the day it went live and have been using it every day since - so great, thank you!

It's definitely nice to be able to see the folders on the web app, but I still can't create new playlists in folders. That would be rad. Also being able to move playlists between folders.

It says it's been implemented, but I still cannot seem to use this feature. Why can't I edit my folders? The only resources I have are my Chromebook and my Android Cell, and I've tried editing my folders in both the installed apps and the web players to no avail. I have over a hundred playlists on my account, and I want to be able to sort them so I can find what I'm in the mood for easier. I feel like on my cell phone in particular, the order of the playlists are never the same and I cannot tell even what the most vague ordering on there is (alphabetical, recently played, etc?). This whole shenanigan is excessively frustrating.
