  1. Links to previous and following movies in a movie franchise/series.

    Links to previous and following movies in a movie franchise/series. E.g. on the movie page for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" link to "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1". Personally I would put the links in the box containing runtime and other meta information.

    Concerning the source for this data I can tell you that The Movie DB have "collections" which seen to contain movie series and franchises. This data is accessible through their API similar to their movie data.

    When you get the movie data there is…

    • Find users with similar tastes and a high compatibility rating

      kind of like the "neighbours" feature on last.fm, you get suggestions on who to add as a friend (people with similar tv show/movie taste to you) based on the tv shows, episodes and movies you marked as seen.

      • Mark multiple episodes watched/collected

        I would like to be able to see a list of episodes with checkboxes next to each so that I could quickly mark what I have seen or collected. For example, I might have seen a full season except one special episode and it takes too many steps to mark this.

        • Compare your movie collection with another user

          Compare your movie collection with someone else (friend or just another community member). This would show a list of the movies the other person has that you don't.

          • Community lists (or moderated lists)

            Allow for lists to be moderated or have an option for a community list.

            Moderated list: Allow an author of a list to add moderators. That would allow for the others to make changes to it. And as a further feature allow someone who isn't a moderator to submit an entry for the list. Examples of this could be a list for season previews, festival entries or genre lists.

            Community list: This could be a list where everyone is allowed to submit one recommendation as for something like "community recommendations" or voting on lists; "trakt's favorite movie of 2012" etc.

            • Notifications for changes in lists

              It would be great if we could have notifications when a change is made to "liked" list.
              Therefore if i follow/like someone elses list and he makes a change or addition i would be notified, can see the change and for example want to watch as well.

                Good timing as we are beta testing new notification features right now.

                The trickest part for this request is including the changed items. For example, say I add 10 movies over a 5 minute period. Getting 10 notifications is overkill. So, we might have to simply notify you the list changed and then you can view it yourself.

              • Import watched status from Netflix csv

                Hi, from my account in Netflix I can download a csv of everything I've ever watched and the date I watched it. It would be tremendous if I could import all that into Trakt. Even better if I import is more than once, it shouldn't duplicate - such that I can do it periodically.

                • Please add "watch now" filter by services in personal lists.

                  For example:
                  I have Netflix subscription but I don't have HBO. I want to know in my watchlist what I can stream now using Netflix.

                  • HDR metadata in collection

                    I would like to add HDR format as metadata in my collection, like HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and HLG. If a movie has no HDR it could be set to SDR.

                    • Add started/unstarted filter and percent completed sorting option to lists.

                      The lists are great, and especially the native watchlist...

                      But it'd be great if I could filter out the ones that I've started or have not started. Furthermore, the ability to sort by the watch completion percentage would be great!

                        • metadata bulk changes

                          I hope I am not just missing such a thing .... but I was looking at the options of adding metadata to entities. I have a large collection, and going in to each one of them individually is just not something I would take the time to do. Are there options to select multiple entities and do a bulk apply of a set of metadata? I do see the ability to change each individual entity

                          • TMDB Episode groups

                            TMDB went ahead and made episodes groups available in the API. TVDB failed kinda hard with their V2 and has this feature nowhere with an ETA. Would it make sense to implement them anyways based on the corresponding TMDB#? The major issues will most likely be things containing specials but the same already holds true with today's mappings.

                            • Horizontal cast list is unwieldy

                              The horizonal cast list has some issues worth mentioning:

                              1. Captions are very small and often abbreviated, requiring mouseover;
                              2. Emphasis on pictures makes it look nice, but trying to find someone by name or character name can take more time than necessary if the cast is extensive;
                              3. Horizontal scrolling on mobile can be problematic (more often than not the touch sensor registers the slight vertical move of a finger and starts vertical scroll instead of horizontal), and even on desktop clicking and dragging the scrollbar is clunky compared to using the scroll wheel.

                              I'd much prefer it to…

                              • Only collected shows in progress page

                                I think it would be great if there was an additional filter for collected/uncollected shows in progress (watched) page. For example some show has 5 seasons but in my country I only have 3 - if i could mark "show only collected" then after watching these 3 seasons that show would disappear from my progress - until i'll collect more seasons...

                                • Show user's rating when displaying item in user's context

                                  I find it really interesting to see how other users have rated a movie or show and how they rated others. Unfortunately, trakt currently only surfaces this information sparingly (AFAICT only for friends on an item's page and in a user's ratings tab). This is especially apparent when browsing the site while not logged in.

                                  It would be great if trakt could show a user's rating when a movie or show is display in a user's context, i.e. on their profile, history, lists etc.

                                  E.g. the profile already shows a user's recently watched episodes and movies and that would be…

                                  • Alert me to special local screenings of movies on my Watchlist (besides new releases)

                                    It'd be great to be notified on the Dashboard when there's a special showing happening near me of movies that aren't new releases. There are lots of small, independent theaters that do special screenings, re-releases, or film festivals, or whatever.

                                    For example, I had Vertigo on my Watchlist, and there was a showing at my local theater, and it would've been great if that appeared on my Dashboard.

                                    I know getting to that data is difficult, and a lot of it is probably impossible to get in a usable, automatable format, but there are a lot of showtime sites that…

                                    • Progress Filters

                                      In Progress view, there are options to filter by Completed and Ended. However this filters as Completed OR Ended. I'd like for an option to filter as Completed AND Ended, so any that I have seen all episodes but is an ongoing series is still visible. And any that have ended but I haven't finished watching are visible.

                                      Thanks

                                        • Easier add to list functionality

                                          The list section is great, but lacking a quicker way to add films. An option in the UI at the top of the screen allowing checkboxes to add in bulk to a list would be very beneficial in building quick lists.

                                          I am currently trying to find a quicker way of reviewing my films I have seen and building lists for friends as must-watch films, but to add 300 or so movies is very laborious.
