I have duplicate songs in a sonos playlist and would like to sort the list alphabetically to make the process easier. Is there a way to sort the list?

Hello,

There is no way at present to sort playlists through the Sonos controllers. I am going to move this into the Share an Idea section and submit this as a feature request for Sonos to sort playlist. This lets other users vote on the idea and the Sonos Product Development Team see the request as well.

OMG What a great idea!!! Please implement immediately. Sonos does everything well except playlists.

Are you kidding? It is so inconvenient that Sonos doesn't have the basic ability to sort playlists or automatically identify duplicates. This is really essential for a good music system.

It's just software - please get this function into the software.

Why don't we have this? Agree with the comment that the ability to sort playlists is essential functionality for a good digital music system...

Still not an option? Even to be able to export as a m3u file to sort and re-import would be a positive step

Just wanted to add my opinion that yes, this should be an essential offering.

This is one thing that definitely needs to be added. Even the ability to export the play list would help, then it could be edited outside of Sonos

Yes Please - it would make long playlists so much more social at parties and usable if they could be arranged alphabetically (by artist) at least.

I've been waiting on Sonos to address this issue with playlist (can't export; sort; delete dups; etc) since I purchased my first device about 15 years ago.

Seems like a deliberate deaf ear has been turned...

Sort by artist, track, year, genre, ratings; are all basic incredient to any decent music library helping it stay organised. Sonos needs to address the most basic software features if it wants to capitalise on the it's market share (current and future); Bose, Samsung and others are now playing in the space, it's only a matter of time before user interface becomes the deciding factor. Features/Development cost, why re-invent when a perfectly good wheel in iTunes, Spotify, Deezer already exist, simply create a compatible 'wheel hub' (AirPlay) so that the perfect wheel can be fitted.

Sorting is basic to any database managment system. Playlist management of duplicates and artists is an essential feature lacking in the Sonos system.

Sorting is definitely requirement.  I  bought one Sonos speaker, and love the wifi function, but I'm thinking of going back to bluetooth or trying another wireless speaker because the Sonos software is so terrible. (I use a Mac, though it doesn't sound like it's better for PC.)

They don't seem to be in any hurry to do anything about this. It is bewildering to say the least.

WHY!!?? Why don't you add this simple feature. Please add this sort function. It seems so simple and it is so important! Really haven't been listening to your customers...this thread is two years old!

I agree, sorting is the most basic of functions.
if the playlist is short it can be done by hand, but if there are lots of tracks in the list it is impossible
