[REQ] Option to inherit share-options [#17883, #17512]

Post by Andre_H »

Hi,

I would find an option to "inherit" in the share settings very helpful: I run a comprehensive, hierarchically structured playlist collection, and whenever I create a new playlist, I have to explicitly share/enable those new playlist in order to have access to it via MMA or DLNA.

An option like "inherit from here" in the OPTIONS=>ARCHIV=>SHARES=>"shared content"-tree would be very convenient.

Thank you for looking into it. That said: a corrsponding option in MMA - to "Inherit" the choosen playlist to sync - would be the same great QoL update there.

Same "problem": if you add a playlist on MMW, you have to look all the way through the lists/sub-lists in MMA to find and activate it. If you can be unconcerned about the storage space on your Android device, some kind of "inheriting" / "inherit from here" would be nice.

Referring to Lowlander's note in Mantis: You (Lowlander) are right, it depends, and the users who want to share their playlists manually have to be considered.

For this reason I thought of an option, in the sense of a second checkbox for each element of the tree, for example. First checkbox = "share, yes/no" (as given), second checkbox "inherit from here, yes/no". That as a server-side setting; this second checkbox for "inherit" would then probably have to be queried when creating, copying, moving, etc. new/existing playlists, depending on the tree/node, where they are made on/moved to.

In MMA (device-side) corresponding checkboxes: "Sync yes/no" and "inherit from here yes/no".
