Add description to shared media automatically

Unread post by troycarpenter » 05 Jan 2017, 23:10

When media is shared, whether an album or song (or any thing else), please autofill the description to be something the user can recognize later when looking at the Shared Media list. Right now when something is shared, the description field is blank.

For instance, when an album is shared, make the description something like "album" or "artist-album". Same thing for a song. As an admin that has to clean up shared files occasionally, it would be nice to know what the shared item is without having to click on the link first.

Thanks! Great response and right along what I expect. What about for a single song?
