Adding to Playlists

I usually keep Amarok open with the "Entire Collection" playlist
selected. I'm used to iTunes from my Mac & Windows days, so that's
what I'm comfortable with. However, I have noticed that when I add
tracks to my media directory, they are usually not added to the
"Entire Collection." Even if I select Rescan Collection, new tracks
are not present. I have to browse my files, select the appropriate
tracks or directory, then choose "append to playlist." Then I have to
wait for the tracks to load, then resort my Entire Collection so it
appears in the proper order.

Is this the way it's supposed to work? I find it tedious and
unreliable. Or is Amarok not supposed to be used this way?

I'm really not the type of person that uses playlists. I like to have
access to everything right in front of me, sometimes listening to my
entire collection on random. I'd hate to break down my entire
collection into smaller playlists. I don't even know where I'd begin
if that were the case!

I'm using Ubuntu Dapper with Amarok 1.4.3 built from source with MySql enabled.

I'm just looking for some clarification. Am I using Amarok correctly?
Thanks for your help with this issue.
