Saved Searches

Registered by Eric Anastas on 2021-06-08

I would like the ability to create smart/dynamic track lists in MIXX. This is available in most other DJ apps. For example....

Traktor has Smart Playlists

Mixvibes CrossDJ also has SmartLists
https://thedjpodcast.com/episodes/crossdj-smartlists/

Serato has Smart Crates

RecordBox has Intelligent Playlists

Similar functionality could be added to MIXX by building on the existing searching and filtering features. My proposal is to add a "Smart Searches" node to the library where each smart search contains the following fields:

Name
A user friendly name for the saved search.

Search String
The standard MIXX search query string to apply.

Target [Optional]: The target list to apply to search to. This may be the entire library, a playlist, or crate. If set the target is selected before the search is applied. Optionally, the target may be omitted from the saved search. In this case selecting the saved search will simply apply the search to whatever view the user currently has open.

Sort [Optional]
The columns to sort the results by, and the directions to sort. This field would also be optional. If omitted whatever current or default sort order would remain.
