I have a smart playlist in iTunes called “new (1 week)”. It should be a simple playlist, but because I want to filter out podcasts, audiobooks and comedy this simple playlist requires multiple rules. After i created this playlist, I found that I wanted more playlists like this, but for “new (2 weeks)” and “new (1 month)”. I could create a new playlist and add all the same rules but change the “Date Added” rule to “2 weeks” and “1 month”, but there is an easier way.
- Select the playlist you wish to duplicate.
- Click File -> Export.
- Save the playlist. Be sure to select .xml as the format.
- Click File -> Import and choose the file you exported.
- You can now select your newly imported smart playlist and edit the rules to suit your new criteria.
