Once on the "Edit Playlist" page, the options are identical to what you can do when creating a playlist, such as:

  • Changing the title of the playlist
  • Adding, editing, or removing the description
  • Adding, editing, or removing tags
  • Adding or removing media from the playlist
  • Changing the order of media in the playlist

When you're done making edits to your playlist, be sure to click the "Save" button at the top right of the page.
