PLAYLIST PROBLEMS

I am using Sonos One on a Mac. I make playlists using using Spotify, not Apple. There are two symbols on the Sonos playlist page. One is obviously shuffle; I think the other is repeat. I do not want to do either of these things. I just spent over three hours making a 54-song playlist, and I want it played in order, NOT shuffled.

I chose “play, even though it was grayed out (because there was no other choice) instead of the shuffle symbol above my playlist. But when the playlist went into the left-hand column to play, it automatically rearranged all 54 songs. This happens to ALL of my playlists; I have no control over it. But this one I wanted in order. Now it’s all jumbled up.

Why post this question three times?

Because I still have the problem, and most answers are for devices, not a computer.

Posting a question three times could mean the answers are posted on different parts of the community, which could obfuscate the right answer, especially for people looking for an answer later.

Great. Then I give up. Sonos sure isn’t what it used to be… I got an entirely wrong answer when I called in and spoke to someone about this. So no original playlists for me.

It sucks to get old. People just what to get rid of you.

Why give up? We’re steering all answers here now.

I must say I cannot recreate your problem, though. My Spotify playlist in Sonos (print screen down below) always plays in the same order when I press “Afspelen” (Play). Or am I not understanding you right?

Maybe someone else knows? You could check here regularly.

My Mac version of Sonos looks nothing like that. I can try to take a picture of it with my phone to post, but  I am clueless about screen shots on a computer. I will have to do that tomorrow. Thank you for hanging there with a grumpy old lady.

Well, now my computer has just quit working completely. Doing the same thing I took in into MACtlc to repair! We are so close to solving this Sonos problem, but now I have to take the computer back in. They fixed nothing for almost $200! Somedays you’re the windshield...
Can I pick up this thread again when I get the computer back?

Of course. Though I’m not sure if I can provide much more help, you could check here again when you have the time.

Thanks. I’m hauling the computer in tomorrow and will hopefully have it back by Friday. Really wanted to work on that playlist, but do not know if I can do that on an iPad. I never see a way to build a playlist there, only to play one.

An update: My entire logic board has to be replaced in my iMac. Sorry to drag this out. I have to wonder why they didn’t discover that problem the first time they had it in their shop. 
Anyway, I shall return!
