How do I specify the default sort order for a public playlist?

How do I specify the default sort order for a public playlist?

I have a public playlist that is sorted so that the most recently added song is played first, and the oldest last. However, when I share the link for this playlist it sorts by default with the oldest song playing first. How do I ensure that when I share my playlist that the recipient experiences it by default in the order that I specified?

Hey @paton,


Thanks for reaching out.


The default sorting order for a playlist is Custom and it's the one being used when a shared playlist is opened. It's currently not possible to change that (feel free to submit it as an idea here), so a workaround for this would be to sort the playlist by Date added and then copy its contents to a new one. When you share it the most recent song will then play first, and the oldest - last.


We hope this helps. Let us know if there's anything else.
