In the Creator Information section of the Playlist Preferences page, administrators can use the Display creator information toggle switch to enable or disable the display of creator information on playlists. To allow the playlist creator's image and biography summary to display with their playlists, leave the switch in the On (green) position. To prevent the playlist creator's image and biography summary from displaying with their playlists, toggle the switch to the Off (gray) position.
The Display Follower Information setting determines whether or not follower information displays on the Playlist Details page of a playlist. Information included about followers includes the followers' names, profile photos, and positions. To allow follower information to display on the Playlist Details page for playlists, leave the Display Follower Information switch toggled to the On position. To prevent follower information from displaying, toggle the switch to the Off position. Note: The number of followers displays on the Playlist Details page and playlist tiles regardless of this preference setting.
External content can be added to playlists. Using the Enable Duration Fields setting, external content can be accompanied by Duration fields, which playlist creators can use to indicate the duration time of the external content. To allow creators to populate the duration for external content they have added to playlists, leave the Enable Duration Fields switch toggled to the On position. To hide the Duration fields for external content, toggle this switch to the Off position.
You can select default providers for both playlists and playlist external content in the Define Providers section. To set a default provider for either content type:
- Select the drop-down menu for the content type for which you want to define a default provider.
- Scroll through the system providers until you find the desired provider, then click the provider name.
- Click the button at the bottom of the page to save your changes. Your chosen default provider will be applied to the content type to which you made changes.
Define Playlist Max Item Limit
In the Define Playlist Max Item Limit section, enter a value between 20 and 50. The specified value will be treated as the maximum number of items which playlist creators can add to their playlists.
If a playlist creator attempts to add more than the specified maximum number of items to a playlist, they receive an error stating, "You reached the maximum number of items for a playlist. Remove a few before adding more." The playlist creator will not be able to add more items to the playlist until they have removed enough items to be at or below the maximum value set via Playlist Preferences.
