Create a playlist

Article summary

Playlists are one type of content in Totara Engage, and allow users to curate lists of resources, courses and surveys.

You can create a new playlist by following these steps:

  1. Select Library from the top navigation bar.
  2. Click the plus icon (Icon

Description automatically generated) next to Your playlists.
  3. Give the playlist a name (and optionally a description), then click Next.
  4. Select an option for the visibility of the playlist:
    • Hidden (only you)
    • Limited (only people and workspaces you share to)
    • Public (anyone can see and share this content)
  5. If you select Public you need to assign the playlist to tags using the Assign one or more tags dropdown. You can remove tags by clicking the cross.
  6. If you select Public or Limited you can choose who the playlist is shared with and where it is shown using the Share to specific people or workspaces dropdown. Note that this setting is optional if Who can see this? is set to Public.
  7. Click Done to create the playlist.
Note that if you set the playlist availability to Public, you will not be able to change the availability at a later date. If you set the availability to Limited, you will only be able to change it to Public. If the playlist is set to Hidden then you can freely change the availability as required.
In the library of a Private workspace, any resources added to a playlist with Limited visibility will also appear individually in the workspace library. If either the playlist or the workspace are Public then the playlist can contain items that aren't included in the workspace library.

Now you’ve created your playlist, you can click the plus icon () inside the dotted outline, then follow the steps for creating a resource
