Author Topic: Keep Playlist Folder Structure When Syncing  (Read 3519 times)

When syncing in MusicBee, you have the option to sync playlists the user has saved.
The user, when creating playlists, has the ability to put their playlists into folders.
I would like for MusicBee to have a new checkbox option to allow for playlists to be uploaded to a device using the same folder structure as the folders used to store the playlists within MusicBee.

Proposed New Checkbox Location:
Anywhere in the Sync Settings page:

Other Images:
Notice that the folder structure is displayed when selecting the playlists

I have many folders and many playlists, the motivation behind this new option is that scrolling the long list of playlists on my mp3 player takes too long.

I organize my playlists using playlist folders. Is there a way to copy this structure in synchronization with my phone?

For clarification, this is how a typical playlist structure looks:
Playlist folder "Live" playlists "Al Jarreau - Look to the rainbow" and "Alicia Key - Unplugged" in it. Now I can synchronize the playlilsts easily to subfolders of the general "Playlists" folder on my phone, but I haven't found a way to have those stored below a new folder "Live".

Is there a way to achieve this?

Thanks a lot,

Hi, welcome to the forum!

I'll going to move this to the Wishlist, because there's not currently a way.

+1 I would love to see this as well. I have hundreds of playlists, which takes a while to scroll through on my phone when they're all put into a single folder.
