  1. Group episodes of a show that are marked as watched simultaneously on the history page

    Marking a season of a show, or the whole show itself, as watched will display each of the show's episode on the history page. Imagine that on a show with 200 episode that you had watched previously, for example. You mark this show as watched and then you check your history. You'll have to navigate through a lot of pages that display the show's episodes and it's kind of an unpleasant experience, especially when you want to review your watched history.

    • On Deck always shows latest episode of series to check into not last marked episode

      I honestly don't even know if I'm describing this correctly but I shall try. I don't always watch shows from the first episode, especially if watching on TV. For the past month, when I check into a show that I have watched previously, if I check into an episode that aired BEFORE the episode I just checked into, it always shows the episode AFTER the one I checked into long before.

      For example: I checked into The Andy Griffith Show episode 8x24 then started watching the show again from Season 1 and checked into episode 1x01 but my Recently Watched…

          Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.

          This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.

        • Disable rating for movies and episodes that won't be released in a month (or longer)

          I know you declined this for *all* movies and episodes that haven't been released, because you're not sure if the release date is correct, but could you at least disable it for more distant release dates? (not including episodes with missing dates)
          If you enable rating about a month before something's released (maybe earlier if that's necessary), you should be able to know if the exact release date is correct, right?

            Unfortunately this is still very hard to predict with earlier online premieres and different release dates around the world. I’d like to do this as well, so i’ll leave it to continue researching.

          • Add Quotes or notes to the movies or tv shows you've watched

            I think that it would be great if you can add quotes of a movie or show you want to remember (something similar seen on seenth.at) or you just simply found something interesting and you want to write it down for yourself (similar to the notes on goodreads)

              I'd love to see some other media forms (manga, books, video games, etc.) on the site so I can track everything in one spot.

                It would be great to follow or like people (actors), so trakt can notify me about new movies of this person or use this information to recommend movies with actors I like/follow

                • 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…

                    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.

                    • 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.

                        • Removing early rating (ie rating of unreleased episode) or banning early rater?

                          Hi TrackTV team,

                          I know I'm onto a topic that have been discussed already, and I'm trying the shed a new light here, my apologies if this has been already discussed also.

                          I'm seeing more and more rating on episode that have not been released yet, which is annoying (because it is not very smart) but mostly it is biaising the overall rate of a tv show (unless it gets loads of votes), hence degrading the trust a user can have of TrackTV ratings.

                          I have seen several other requests that have been denied but none pointing out the negative…

                            • 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

                              • 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...

                                  • Reset Progress from Show page

                                    Hi

                                    I like the new reset progress feature however can you add a way to reset a show progress from it's show page. it's kind of a pain having to trawl through the progress page to find a show to rest the progress

                                    Thanks

                                    • Allow other lists to automatically remove item when watched

                                      Allow the option for other lists to act like the watchlist and automatically remove items when you mark them as watched

                                      • Add notifications for “friends starts watching” event

                                        Add Desktop/Pushover notifications on friends activity.

                                        For instance, when I am following someone I like to keep track of what they are watching to see if there's something interesting for me.

                                        Instead of only exploring my friends' activity on my dashboard I would like to receive real-time notifications when they start watching a movie or episode.

                                        • Share TV Episode only if the Show is active

                                          Right now I don't share TV Episode on twitter because i don't want to spam my followers,
                                          but for series that are active (by that i mean, it's currently releasing one episode of a season each week)
                                          Because of the delay between episodes, i wouldn't spam my followers and the show is airing so it's great to share that you saw the last episode released.
                                          I think for the last episode of the season you could make it so the Show is considered active until one week after the last airing of the show.
