Order of songs mixed

Order of songs mixed







Operating System


My Question or Issue

I used a long time to figure out how to move 5000 songs into a new playlist. But i have them all copied which is a lot of work cause thats a problem in itself. I decide to paste them into my new playlist. After ive done that they are all added at the same time! Everything is fine until i turn on recently added which is my standard sorting function. When i do that they are all mixed/sorted after name of the album. I have used a long time to just be able to move my songs over, have a system and make my life easier. Any help would be appreciated. So the issue is how to get your songs in the right order even when choosing recently added. I could just move every single one of those 5000 songs over seperatly but id rather not.

If you move all the songs to a new playlist then they'll all have the same "date added" timestamp which explains why they're out of order. You can't move the timstamp over from one playlist to another.

If i edit songs it only affects custom and not recently added filter. Which is a another of my problems. Fixong recently added to be customizable would be a huge benefit for me and many others. My playlist has 5000 songs and i cant seperate them cause that would make my life way too messy. So if i dont use recently added i would have to scroll a long way down every time which is painful

I highly doubt that Spotify will ever make recently added/date added customizable.
