  3. From one of the drop-down lists, select Replace. For an explanation of the possible selections for module placement, see Module Placement.

  4. Click add_circle_outline, and select Playlist. A form appears.

  5. In the Title field, enter a title.

  6. From Playlist, select one of the available list types.

    • Basic—Builds a playlist from individual video or audio files.
    • Advanced—Builds a playlist from individual video or audio files and associated companion content.
    • Dynamic—Builds a playlist using selection criteria. For more information, see Dynamic lists.
    • Use Existing Playlist—Imports an existing playlist.
  7. Add items to the playlist based on your selection in step 6.

  8. In the Max Items field, enter the maximum number of items to appear in the playlist.

  9. From the Call to Action list, select a call to action.
