Would it be possible to have a field with a "last skipped" date for songs?

 I used to have a number of intelligent play lists combining rules relying on "last played" and "last skipped" dates. In Music Bee it's only possible to incorporate the total skip count in that. I tend to be not in the mood for a certain song for some time, but later maybe I'll love to listen to it again. So it'd be great to see when I last skipped a song and be able to program a playlist accordingly.

(The possibility to set your own values regarding what counts as skipped is great, btw! That was something that really bugged me in iTunes.)

Hi,
I only found a tag for "last played"-date. But I didn't found a tag for the date of "last skipped".
Is it already in MusicBee?

i've done this in plugin: option to store "last skipped date/time". plugin saves it to any writable tag, but i'd recommend saving it to a custom tag.

plugin thread:
https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=3833.msg207341#msg207341

plugin add-on page:
https://getmusicbee.com/addons/plugins/49/additional-tagging-amp-reporting-tools/


install/update plugin, go to mb menu> edit> prefs> plugins> tagging tools> configure. see the button "save last skipped date..." at the bottom of plugin settings window.

this is a beta option at the time, but it's working fine for me. plugin should precisely follow mb convention of when a track is skipped.

Hi,
@boroda

plugin thread:
https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=3833.msg207341#msg207341

This works fine! Thanks a lot!

But how can I use the "last-played-date" in "custom-tag"?
How to compare?
     For example: "last-played-date" later than two weeks?
Is there a way to define "last-played-date" as a date-format-type?

yes, of course. i should have mentioned it. open mb menu> edit> open prefs> tags(1)> define new tags> configure fields: find "custom 1" tag (or some other custom tag):
