New Playlist Window!

It's that time of year!

Back to School, New Orchestra Season Preparations beginning...

We've made some great changes and enhancements to our Playlist window! In addition to the UI (User Interface- Here's my computer geek coming out) changes, we've also added some great new features. Below you can see some screen shots, explanations, and general information!

Here's a "Bubbled Out" version of the new interface. The main new feature here, are Playlist folders. Each professor/librarian/music director can now have their own folder(s) for members to locate the playlists quickly!

We've also updated the playlist control features to support the addition of folders. "Move Playlist" is an example!

Student and Individual Playlists!

Ever have that perfect album playing, and get frustrated you're unable to save it to a playlist?

Not anymore! All members of subscribing institutions (Orchestra's Included!) will have the ability to create and save their own set of playlists!

Here's the window that members will need to fill out.

* Naxos will NEVER sell, rent, or otherwise distribute your e-mail address to a third party*

E-mail in today's world, is simply the easiest way to retrieve and store member profiles!

Once logged in, members will be able to add, edit, and delete tracks from their individual playlists, all while having full access to the account playlists. Indeed, the NML is becoming the destination for classical music lovers of all walks of life!

Adding Directly to Account Playlists!

Some people know exactly what I'm talking about! As an account adminstrator, or professor, you will now be able to place playlists directly into the "Shared Playlists" area!

The "Folder" pull-down menu will allow you to drop those playlists right into the "shared" access area. No more un-necessary moving! This feature is available as a direct result of User communication, so please keep those comments coming!

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to write or call!

Stay Classy,
