How to save tracks in a playlist

Setting up playlists happens as you save a track, and you may set up multiple playlists to keep different collections separated - be it one list to store practise routines, one favorite-for-listening or a collaborations-to-join list.

just follow these steps to set up your first playlist:

1
Navigate to the track you would like to add to your playlist
2
Click on the "Add to..."-button below the audio player and choose "Playlist" from the drop-down menu.
3
A pop-up dialogue opens and you are asked to enter a name for your playlist.
Enter a name and confirm to create the playlist and to save the track.
From now on, the pop-up dialogue will offer you to add any following tracks either to the playlist you just created, or to create a new list.
4
The pop-up displays a confirmation message when the track has been added to your playlist.

Where to find my playlists

To browse your playlists, navigate to your user profile by clicking on your username in the top navigation.
Locate the "playlists"-tab and open it,
and you will either land right on the page displaying your playlist (if you have just one), or to a screen listing all of your playlists.
In the second case, open the playlist you would like to listen to by clicking on the list entry.

For a quick reference on the player controls including the shuffle mode option, please check the audio player controls page.
