    3. Enter your active directory credentials.
  2. Click the profile icon again and select My Channels.
  3. Locate the channel that has the playlist you want to edit, move your mouse over its thumbnail, and click on the pencil icon that appears.
  4. Click the Playlists tab near the top of the page. You should see all of the playlists created for the channel.
  5. On the row of the playlist you want to edit, click the pencil icon. You'll be brought to a page that's the same as when you create a playlist.
  6. A screenshot of the "edit playlist" page.Edit your playlist. Here are the kinds of things you can do:
    1. Edit the metadata: You can edit the title, description, and tags.
    2. Edit the order: Use the two horizontal lines next to each element in your playlist (listed on the right side of the page) to manually drag them up and down in the list. You can also click the kebab (the three dots) on any line and elect to move that entry to the top or bottom of the list.
    3. Remove entries: To remove an entry from the playlist, click the kebab (three dots) on any line of the playlist (right side of the screen) and select Remove.
    4. Add additional entries: click the plus icon next to any item on the left side of the screen ("add items to playlist"). You may need to use the search box to find the entry you want to add.
  7. When you're done making your edits, click Save at the top of the page.
