Getting started with DISCO

The best way to get started on DISCO is to watch our short introductory video from our School of DISCO:

Adding and Sharing Music

Sharing music with DISCO is a breeze. Check out this quick video below for how to upload and share your music:

1. Add your music (and other files) 

When you sign in to your DISCO, the first thing you need to do is add some music (and whatever other files you need). This is done using the Playlist Creator on the right side of the page. The right column of the app, called the Playlist Creator, is where you add music and files and create playlists: 

To add tracks, simply drag and drop from your hard drive or iTunes into the Playlist Creator:

2. Save your playlist

Note: You don't need to save the Tracks you uploaded in the Playlist Creator, they will be automatically saved in your DISCO after uploading, but it is recommended to keep your music organized.

To save your uploaded Tracks as a Playlist, click Save in the Playlist Creator.

Give your Playlist a Name, and enable any of the desired Content Settings, Security Settings, or Browse Settings by setting the toggles to ON (they should appear green). You can also add Playlist tags, or add your Playlist to a Channel. Then click Save Playlist.

3. Share your playlist

After saving your Playlist, a share link will be generated. You can copy this link, or click Share this playlist.

Depending on the Content Settings* you selected previously, recipients you share the Playlist with will be able to stream the tracks, download them individually, or download them all at once on a page with your branding: 
*If the Streaming only toggle under Content Settings was enabled, recipients will not be able to download your Tracks.

4. Access your saved playlists

Your saved Playlists are stored in the Browse section of your DISCO under the Playlists tab. 

Navigating DISCO

The other key app elements are: 

1. The Explorer

When you click on a Playlist in the Browse section, it opens in a new column to the right. When you click on a Track in the new column, another new column is created to the right.

These columns make up the Explorer. The Explorer is the core of the DISCO workflow and helps you intuitively and creatively move through your music and files, speeding up the process of creating new Playlists.

2. The Search bar

Located at the top of the app, the search bar lets you search your DISCO at any time. 

3. The left sidebar

The left sidebar, is where your Browse area, Starred content, Inboxes, Tools, and Channels live. If you are subscribed to the Discovery Suite, this will appear here as well.

Note: Some tools and features are only available to specific plans. There may be some pictured below that are not on your account.

4. The top right menu 

The top right menu is where you can access the DISCO Bulk Uploader, referral program, help and support resources, Notifications, your DISCO Account SettingsInsights, and more!

5. The chat button

The chat button, located in the bottom right of the app, is where you can reach out to DISCO Support! Don't be shy, ask us anything, any time – we'll get back to you quickly 😊
