We have a lot of support tickets and are working to update the site and issues as fast as we can. If you don’t get a reply right away, it’s not because we’re ignoring you, but because we are working on updates. Thanks.

How can we improve Trakt.tv?

  1. 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…

        • Change ratings text

          The text associated with 1-10 star ratings currently isn't very helpful.
          For example, I feel like Star Wars: The Force Awakens is described best of the options with "weak sauce", but I don't think it was as bad as a 1.
          It's the same with the other end: I could describe Scott Pilgrim as "totally ninja", but don't feel like it was a 10/10 masterpiece film.

          I'm coming from MyAnimeList, where the 10 points each have a non-subjective position on the scale which I use to help me decide on an appropriate rating for the series/film. It helps stop me…

          • «On This Day»-tab

            I love Trakt and would sign up for a VIP membership within seconds if an «On This Day»-tab was added.

            In «On This Day» you could 1) see what you watched on this day the previous years and 2) show which movies premiered and episodes broadcasted on this day (not ALL movies and episodes, but the ones that is in your collection or viewing history).

            I hope I explained this well enough to understand. Keep up the great work!

            • Customizable notifications (per episode via Pushbullet)

              Send notifications about new episodes to Pushbullet.

              Now we only have email notifications -witch are great- but it would be nice to be able to receive a Pushbullet notification, a few houres before the season premiere.

              And I would like to be able to totally customise it, like for example selecting a list, and then saying that I want to receive a message for every episode on that list that is airing, and then selecting that I receive an notification on the air date, 4 houres in advance (so I don't forget to watch it that night).

              If it is…

              • Import / Sync from Rottentomatoes

                I'd really like a sync or import option with rottentomatoes, even as a VIP only feature.
                I believe this need some research though because it might not be possible at all.

                • Filter based on "Watch now" services that I subscribe to

                  It would be great to extend the "Watch now" feature such that I can tell Trakt which services I subscribe to, e.g. Netflix and HBO Go, and have it apply a filter to only show items that are available from those services when viewing a list.

                  Example, I favorited a IMDB Top 250 list and it would be nice to see what's currently available to watch so that I can start working through it.

                    • Slack / Discord / IRC

                      I'd like to have some sort of live chat to interact with staff and other users of the community, especially for when big television premieres are happening. Slack would be preferred, but I wouldn't mind a Discord or IRC channel either. Perhaps make this a VIP perk.

                      • Widget Displaying Last-N-Watched Shows

                        I like the "watched" web widgets available at https://trakt.tv/widgets/watched, but the limitation that they only display the user's *one* most recently watched show seems odd.

                        Could we have a version of the widget that displayed the user's last N shows (within a reasonable limit of N, of course)? Could be something simple, like a small stack of the 500x40 "text" widgets, or like the bar of six show logos within the "profile card" widget" with some sort of "recently watched" heading.

                        • Easier CSV export/backup of multiple sections

                          Make it easier to do CSV export of multiple setctions at the same time. E.g. add a tab in the profile where you can mark which stuff you want to backup then a backup button which will give you a ZIP file with the selected section's CSV files. Maybe even make to possible to backup automatically to Google Drive.

                            • import user data

                              I see there is an option to export data. Is it possible now or in the future where a user can export their respective data and later upload that data? Possible use is a backup of data prior to doing some testing, then to restore after ... pull the data to make changes then upload to send the changes to trakt.tv, etc.

                              • Add ability to customize rating text

                                When sharing to a social network that you've rated a movie/episode/season/etc, the ability to customize the text when sharing should be added. For example, if you were rating a movie (say Ex Machina) the default text is "Ex Machina (2015) ★★★★★★★★★★ https://trakt.tv/movies/ex-machina-2015 … #trakt". I think it would be nice if users were able to customize that text to something different.

                                • Sync data from letterboxd

                                  I use letterboxd for movies, and trakt for television. But my profile here would be more complete if it added my movies as well. Doing it manually each time, doesn't really make much sense, but if there could be a way for those two to sync automatically that would be great. Perphaps by using IFTTT and the profile RSS feed from Letterboxd.

                                  • Import Blu-ray collection from Blu-ray.com

                                    It would be great to allow the ability import our Blu-ray collections from Blu-ray.com. on Blu-ray.com each user has a profile collection page. This would save us adding every movie separately to our Trakt movie collection.

                                    • Rss Feed For Recomendations

                                      It would be nice to add an RSS feed for Recommendations so that could be integrated with ifttt.

                                      • Add runtimes to user history RSS feed

                                        Adding runtimes to each entry in the user history RSS feed would make the feed far more useful in IFTTT.

                                        I'm looking at sending entries to a specific Google Calendar (rather than loading the iCal feed into a separate calendar). I believe this format will work for Google Calendar quick entry in IFTTT: "1 hour 30 minutes".

                                        Thank you!

                                        • [VIP] SET COVER is great, but...

                                          ...to find the perfect cover is very heavy.

                                          Please make an option on lists or elsewhere to change the view from poster/cover to fanart ;)

                                          and by the way, let me reposition the picture, like on facebook.

                                          greetings,
                                          chatterer
