      We’d like to better support multiple accounts or give you a way to run multiple stations from a single account. For now, the best way to run multiple stations is to create a different Anchor account for each station. Each account will need its own unique email address (or social login) to sign up. Note that you can use the gmail + trick, ie you could have 3 accounts with the following “unique” email addresses:
      - me@gmail.com
      - me+2@gmail.com
      - me+another@gmail.com

      The emails will all go to your primary “me@gmail.com” account, but our system will register them as separate signups. We hope this helps!

    • re-order segments by dragging and dropping.

      Sometimes I echo or create segments or even post call-ins and then later think it would be better in a different order. So instead of having to delete everything and find all the things you want to post again in a different order, being able to edit your stations list would be super helpful! :)

      • Allow clipping/editing of call-ins

        Allow clipping/editing of call-ins to publish only the pertinent parts (callers tend to drone on).

        • Pinned segment

          I think it would be cool to have a pinned segment at the top of my station that only new listeners would hear. It would be a way to introduce my station and what I like to talk about and what music I like to play. Or perhaps it could be embedded in the profile and people can listen to that as a way to hear an introduction to the station. Let me know what you think.

          • Show Us How Long Segments Are

            It would be very helpful to see how long each segment is before it plays. We had visual cues on Anchor v1 but I think it would be even better to know specifically with a time.

            Let us know how long it's going to take to listen. Is it a 1 min segment or 5? This would make Anchor much more user-friendly and give us the ability to come back if it's a long segment and we're unable to listen.

              • Provide a Cursor to move the listening point of a segment

                This feature was available in V1 and it's inclusion in V2 can help speed up the listening to a station/segment.

                While a segment is playing provide a Cursor which I can move to arbitrary points within the segment so that I can move forward when I want to skip ahead the content I'm currently listening to, and more importantly allows me to scroll backwards if I missed or could not hear clearly what was said. with the current implementation my only choice is to hear the full segment again, whereas I may be interested to only listen to selected parts…

                    Not just upload clips from the computer, but literally record in the website.

                      It would be nice if our archive could be searched for keywords especially since the archive is growing and it's not sorted by date

                                • Add the ability for multiple users to collaborate on one station

                                  My buddy and I want to contribute to a station together. There should be a way for both of us to add to the one unified station. I have already started mine, and want to add him and his input on it without multiple interviews.

                                    We do plan to make it easier to collaborate on stations, but in the meantime the easiest way to do so is to share login information with your collaborators. Multiple people can log in to the same account and update to the same station. We hope this helps for now!

                                  • Separate out Episodes and Podcasts to Save Entire Episodes and Focus Podcast Posts

                                    Many are stations are excited to have episodes available so when they're off-air or new listeners visit the profile, they can listen to episodes to understand the station's content and focus.

                                    Currently, all episodes are posted as podcasts but Apple/Spotify music segments and “add to station” segments are not included. My understanding is this is because of music copyrights and rights from other Anchor stations whenever we use "add to station," we cannot have these in our episodes because it will be distributed to the Anchor podcast networks such as iTunes or Google Play.

                                    Would Anchor consider separating episodes and…

                                        • allow for the uploading of content from other apps in IOS to the service.

                                          With some of the other audio services such as audioboom, you can bring in content from external sources, such as bossjock, or the IOS voice memos app. I would like to be able to do this with anchor.
