Hey there, I'm a newcomer here ;-)

I'd like to ask a "Playlist" question.

Can others users see the way I arranged the songs in my playlists or they just see the songs by the date I added them to my playlist? Although I arrange the way I want the songs to appear (alphabetically or by artist), other users cannot see that, is there a way to fix that?

Hello @Brats and welcome to the community

 

Users can see your playlists the way you arrange them when you create them. For that you need to create your playlist in 2 times.

 

1 - You create first a private work in progress playlist. You arrange your tracks the way you want, alphabetically, by date, by album etc..

 

2 - You create a second playlist. You title it the way you want. You select all the tracks of your first playlist and you drag them on the left column of the desktop on the title of you new playlist. The tracks appear the way you have ordered them in the 1st playlist. You make this 2nd playlist public and users will see it the way you have arranged it.

 

3 - now you can delete the work in progress playlist.

Hi All, I'm new to the community, although a member of Spotify since its creation back in 2006. At this stage I'm a Premium Subscriber. I have a passion for music that has stayed with me throughout my life.  Moving through different methods of listening to music from old vinyl 78s to the launch of MP3s in 1992 then onward and upward to streaming via Spotify. I have over time created some 30 Playlists and made them Public each time. Yet have no followers! I believe that approaching the age of 66 in March that I have a wealth of Music knowledge, which I have attempted to share through my Playlist Creations. I use the name ALLSORTS in my Playlist titles to hopefully attract followers. Sadly to no avail.

 I also took the time to create a playlist from the Published Book " 1001 Songs To Hear Before You Die" which I broke down into Decades. I thought this would interest Spotify Members again nothing. I'm sure I have something to offer.

i know the community will be the judge as to wether my Playlists are considered good- bad - or indifferent. But how do I reach the community?

i have looked at the Playlist Exchange welcome page, but cannot find any instructions as to how I get my Playlists into the Exchange. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

if you do read this rendition of War & Peace as it is so long. The least I can do is say " Thank You "

Kind Regards

Thank you very much for the tips! I will try it right now. Do you also happen to know if there's a way to "select all" tracks in order to drag them because when I select with the mouse doesn't allow me to select them all, just 10-20 and then deselects.

Thanks in advance ;-)

Normally to select a block of tracks, you have 2 ways :

 

1 - you left click once on the 1st track to highlight it.

2 - on your keyboard you keep shift + arrow down till the last track you wnat in your block. Once the block is highlighted, you keep left click anywhere inside the selection and you drag it to the playlist you want.

 

or you can select also all tracks by : one left click on the 1st track and in the top left menu of the desktop : Edit + Select all (Ctrl + Q)

Need Help with a replaced Spotify Playlist

 

Hi, everyone! :)

Anyone knows the Titles that were in this Playlist:

"MAXXIMIZE With Blasterjaxx"  (https://play.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/2D5Mnk6YSNETZIrW5nZ5o9)

 

I think it should be the MAXXIMIZE NYC Mixtape from Blasterjaxx

It was replaced without saying by the playlist "Oliver Bus Tour" and i couldnt save the songs before...

If you use the Search Function Spotify still shows the Playlist and its cover but if you click on it, you will get to the "Oliver Bus Tour" playlist

 

Thank you all for your help :)

Help, I can no longer find the "Nice & Easy" channel in the "Focus" genre as of this week!  

 

It's very difficult to find a good playlist to get creative work done and I've come to rely on that playlist to work through projects on tight deadlines. Is this playlist permanently off?? How can I find out what the songs on that playlist were?

 

Thanks,

Very Distraught
