Hi there @_Sage_,


Thanks for the post.

 

You can try zooming out your UI with the Ctrl + - command or from the 3-dot menu in the upper left corner > View > Zoom out. Do this a couple of times until the 'Added by' column appears, or simply reset the zoom with Ctrl + 0.

 

Also, it's worth noting that the collaborators won't show on the Web Player, since the feature is not supported there.

 

Hope this clears things up.

 

Cheers.

Hello! Thanks for reaching out to the community!

 

When you open up a playlist on desktop, a bar that looks like this should appear above your songs:

In the column labeled User, you should be able to see who added a song to a collaborative playlist. Hope this helps!!

Unfortunately, mine does not show that bar. It only shows the song name, artist and length of the song ;(

I had the same problem, just quit out of the app or reload tab and it should show up.

I was able to see who added songs to a collaborative playlist, but since a few days I only see the songs I added myself.

 

What changed and how can I see who added the songs again?

I have the same issue with my playlist with my friends!

Just wanted to drop you a note that we're looking into this and gathering all the relevant info in this thread.

 

It'd be great if you could head over there to add your + VOTE and make sure to leave all the details requested in the Status Update, so that the right folks can get to the bottom of this.

 

Thanks - We'll be on the lookout for your replies 🙂

Same problem for me:

 

I used to work on my iPhone and iPad then it stopped.

 

Device

iPhone 6s

Operating System

iOS 13.5

Spotify version

 

8.5.60.881

you might need to expand your spotify screen. i stretched it out and was able to see the user column after i did it.

This did the trick for me. Restarted app and "User" column showed up.

I am having this issue too - i am unable to see User column in my playlist, even in windows applicaiton.
I do recall seeing it 6 months ago or more, but havent had the need to look at User column since today - does it have something to do with Private/Public lists and there used to be a flag to set for Collaborative playlist, but that seems to also be gone, replaced with "Invite Collaborators".
Is there any way to see who are Collaborators on your playlist (and remove them?)

Hey there @kendovich

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

We can confirm that some changes have been made to collaborative playlists recently. Previously, if a user had the playlist's link, they could freely add or remove songs. Now, only the authorized (by the playlist's creator) collaborators can make changes in the playlist. 

 

On another note, you should still be able to see all the users who have access as collaborators on your playlists under the playlist's title. Also, you can see who added the song in the playlist on the "ADDED BY" column. For more info about this and how to remove collaborators, we suggest that you take a look at this article. 

 

If this is not how it works on your end, would you mind sending as a screenshot of your collaborative playlist so we can take a closer look? You can attach it to your next response by using the Insert image option in the post editor. Make sure not to send any private info.

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply.

Can you still see the profile of the person who added the song if they are no longer a present contributor of the playlist? When I’m on the app on my iPhone 13 pro I see the icon of the person who added the song but I am unable to click on their profile.

I am the only person  on the playlist currently,  but the person who added the song has their icon next to the song they added and I am unable to click their profile. 

Hey there @Umewe100,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

Could you let us know if this only happens with a specific user or with any users?

 

On another note, would you mind checking if the same happens from a different device?

 

Keep us posted.

I’m having the same problem, did you figure it out? 

Hey @richellevincent,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

In this case, can you send us the exact make/model and OS of the affected device along with the Spotify version you have running?
 

On another note, as mentioned by @Eni, is this happening with a specific user or with any users?

 

Lastly, can you send us a screenshot of what you're seeing from your side?

 

Keep us in the loop!

Heyy

i am having the same problem with my playlists too. It used to have my icon and as well as my friends icon in the contributed to playlist part but now it only shows myself and 1 like which i believe is my friend. And i can no longer see on my Macbook air who added what song but on my iphone i can see who added what but i am unable to view their profile.  

I can instead see what date songs were added to the playlist.

Hey @mvinod22,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Could you post screenshots of what you're seeing on your end as this'll help us a lot to understand the description better.

 

Keep us posted,

 

Cheers!
