You can arrange the tracks within a playlist at any time, by going to the playlist’s edit page.

How do you know it’s a playlist?

A playlist’s artwork looks like a small stack of record covers. The number of tracks within the playlist will also be displayed underneath.

We recommend creating smaller playlists, with a maximum of 150 tracks.
