Show "Do Not Play" status using a badge or icon on each track
In order to quickly see which tracks have the "Do Not Play" flag turned on, an indicator of this flag in the media management view would be very useful. Otherwise, broadcasters have to go in and out of each individual track to find out.
An extra column might take up too much room. A ❌ or other symbol on top of the cover art could be a good way to implement this.
Recently, I uploaded some tracks but was unable to select a category after uploading. I was also unable to sort by uncategorized “music" tracks to find them. I had to search for them by name. There should be a way to sort “uncategorized” track or at least a way to sort recently uploaded tracks.

It would be very useful to see if a track has the "Do Not Play" flag turned on without having to go into the track editor screen. This would allow for quick identification as to whether or not a track is expected to play.
For example, you might have a batch of seasonal ID's which you want to make sure are disabled from playing.
This could be handled by placing an icon or flag indicator on top of the album art work, or somewhere in the line for each track as a new column.
This would at least provide some visibility and access although still requiring a visual "scan" of all tracks in order to find which ones are affected. If this flag were treated as a category or media type, tracks could be managed in groups. Also, if the DNP "badge" were a "click-toggle" it would be even easier to move tracks into or out of rotation.

I haven't been active recently and just noticed we can check a box on each track to "Do Not Play". That's cool, but when you have thousands of songs in your track library, it's hard to remember which songs are turned off. Can you add a column that shows which tracks are "On/Off", please? This would make managing holiday songs much easier, IMO.
This idea shouldn't only be "under consideration", but "currently working on it". I love that the "Do Not Play" feature was introduced, but not having that visual on the Tracks page is tragic. Frankly, of all the ideas I've seen, this one is most critically important, IMO. I'd like to see it pushed to the top of the list, please!

I just commented on another similar post. PLEASE make this happen ASAP.

It would also be nice to have a way to select several tracks as a category. i.e. Christmas. If clocks get knocked off for whatever reason, Christmas songs won't play in "Random" mode. You could just select the category and choose "Do Not Play" Right now you have to go into each individual track to check the box. A LOT of extra work for those with larger libraries.

I would love to have a way to unclick "Do Not Play" without having to go thru my whole music library to find these songs since AUTO DJ likes to play them just before one of my programs.
