Frequently Asked Questions

What’s a “playlist action”?

Playlist actions are ordering and filtering options you can apply to your playlists. You can modify the order in which you present your videos beyond YouTube’s standard ordering options. You can also remove certain videos, like those that are unlisted or that don’t fit the overall playlist strategy.f

Why do I need to use playlist actions?

Playlist Actions is like having a remote control for your audience’s attention. You can sort your videos in a way that keeps viewers glued to the screen, get rid of the ones that don’t fit your vibe, and change who can see your videos with a click.

It’s all about making your channel the go-to spot for your fans, keeping everything fresh and exactly how you want it.

Are there any limits to the number of playlist actions I can use?

Realistically, there aren’t. However, due to YouTube API limitations, we don’t recommend running playlist action on playlists with more than 1,000 videos (and if that’s an issue, kudos to you for creating so much content!).
