For some reason I can't figure this out. It seems like a simple feature that should just be there but has anyone figured out how to copy an entire playlist?
Thanks for writing in. You cannot copy a playlist. If I may ask, where would you like to copy the playlist?
Thanks for the fast response!
Actually I'd like to just copy a current one I have and then give it a new name within my playlist listing.
In my particular use case I create new playlists that share quite a few songs. So instead of creating one fresh I'd like to copy an existing one, remove the old songs, then add the new songs.
My playlists become a moving window of what I'm currently listening too and what I was listening too circa January 2013, November 2013, etc. This is how I currently manage playlists in iTunes. I have playlists going back to 2005 so it's really fun resurrecting a point-in-time playlist and listening to what I got tired of as well as see what I'm still digging to this day.
I admit this is probably a rare use case amongst others though.
Thanks for elaborating. I can see how being able to copy a playlist would be useful in this scenario, and I’ll share your suggestion with our product team.
I want this feature today. I make playlists for whomever comes over for dinner, trying to make a mix that appeals to everyone as best as possible.
The situation is irdiculous - see the thread under "merging playlists." Rdio does itself no favors with its unresponsive - "I'll forward the suggestion" - posture. It's been years since this issue was raised, and it's simple to do in spotify and other services.
This feature needs to be added…..Please allow us to copy and rename playlists.
I agree with Brett Michaels, this is ridiculous. Why exactly is this prohibited????
People have been asking for this for over two years.
For me, this is the #1 reason I don't have an Rdio account. That, and the inability to import iTunes playlists. In part, I'm sad the feature is missing, but more importantly I'm sad that Rdio is clearly not responsive to feature requests. This makes me hesitant to invest in becoming a full fledged Rdio user.
Like Scott, my playlists reflect the music I'm listening to at a certain point of time. In iTunes, I can simply duplicate a playlist and add/delete a few songs while still retaining the original mix. We are only asking for the capability to duplicate a playlist within the Rdio system; we are not asking to be able to export playlists to other services so there doesn't seem to be any strategic reason to deny offering this option.
As a developer myself, adding this feature seems like the most basic of tasks and theres no reason it can't be added to Rdio. Your development team has conquered much greater feats and I'd venture a guess that you could create this feature within a week. If not, hire me as a contractor and I'll figure it out.
Just do it...you are losing potential customers!
