Past snapshot_id for shared playlist?

Past snapshot_id for shared playlist?

Some context: At the beginning of this year, I started a weekly tradition where friends and I add one song to a shared playlist that we think the group should hear. At the end of the week, I move the songs to a different playlist to archive them, and remove the songs in the shared playlist. Then each person adds a new song for the week to the original shared playlist.


It's been a great way to share music with each other!


I recently got the idea to run some analytics on the shared playlist at the user level (e.g., this person never missed a week, this person added the most punk genre songs, this person added the longest song, etc).


From a development perspective, the first challenge seems to be finding each week's version of the shared playlist. I've been reviewing the Spotify API documentation, and the snapshot_id variable seems like a good start, but is there any way to pull past snapshot IDs from a playlist?


Thank you for reading this far! I have minimal developer experience, but this seemed like a fun project to take on! Very thankful for any and all guidance on the best way to build this.

Ever figure this out? I'm in the same boat and would like to know if this is possible!
