so we can keep track of what we've already played
maybe if played for 30-45 seconds continuously, track name turns yellow or something...

You can preview the tracks in the playlist without loading them, just press the track, keep it pressed and an option to preview will pop up

Serato Scratch Live marks tracks played as follows:

let's say a song is playing on Deck B
load/audition as many tracks to idle deck A, preview, play, they don't get marked, none of them no matter how long played

only AFTER you load another song to Deck B to replace what was playing on B while you were auditioning/playing last song on A will the song, that was played on A get marked

it's quite clever, sounds complicated but is quite simple

i think it's called the A, B, A method

maybe someone here can explain it better

DJayPro on MAC. I do not see a way to configure this setting. Even if you play a song for a single beat it gets marked played. I would like to either be able to uncheck as played or have a setting that doesn't mark them unless it goes over 59 seconds. I do not have to report in set unless at least 60 seconds are played. It would be a nice to have feature.

IMHO the original request was not implemented. the request was AFTER some period of time like 30 -45 sec give a visual cue that the song is played.

In its current form If a song plays it is instantly marked played. I believe the feature is incorrectly Implemented. I either need the ability to change the amount of time it is played before it is marked played to something like 30 to 60 seconds as originally requested AND/Or the ability to unmark it as played. So at least I can undo these single beat songs as showing played. All in all this is not a huge inconvenience but it would be a "nice to have"

Respectfully this is NOT implemented as requested.
