  1. Synchronize with iTunes and iOS watched status

    I watch movies and series episodes on my Mac or iPhone, and would really like to sync my watched statuses to Trakt.

    • Hidden Shows - Additions!

      Well - here's my idea. The ability to hide a show from your progress bar is great, but we all have guilty pleasure shows that we'd rather not tell everybody about. So being able to watch a show, check it in on the website and all, without making it visible to everybody would be great. Just being able to hide it from your public profile would be great.

      • Privacy: hide watch times

        I've had several friends complain about Trakt that altough they like being able to see what TV Shows and Movies other friends have watched, they don't like the 'time' being displayed.

        They have no problem inthe information showing they watched XXX on Tuesday, but they have a problem when it also says they watched at 11AM.

        Probably because of privacy issues. Maybe then don't want friends knowing they're at home watching TV instead of working, or at 3AM watching TV.

        I believe there are lots of strong and compelling reasons to make Times an toggle, and user can decide to…

          Interesting idea. We’ll look into this, the main challenge is not only hiding from the website, bu also the API. The activity API specifically is largely based around timestamps of all the various actions.

        • Add a "watched up to this" button

          Add Seen up to this episode/season button, please, it is a core feature IMHO.

          • Follow People (Actors) and get notifications

            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

            • Show what shows/movies you both watched when browsing someones profile

              Like on the Website MyAnimeList. When visting the history page of someone elses profile it would be cool to see a little statistics on top which shows how many shows/movies you both watched or rated the same.

              • Search in "Tvdb" "tmdb" direct link ?

                Hi

                When a tvshow or movie is not found on trakt, could you add a direct link for searching on other sites databases. As the title is already entered ?
                Thanks

                • Restart TV Show Progress While Keeping Episode Watch Count

                  This problem mainly arose with the most recent 2.0 update to the trakt addon in XBMC, I love the two way syncing system however, when I want to rewatch a tv series I can't make use of the XBMC "watched" feature which is a pain. This happens because if I mark the tv series as unwatched (to start tracking my XBMC progress again) it will automatically mark it as seen upon next load.

                  I often watch videos on different systems so the two way syncing is like an angel from heaven, however I think that some sort of system on…

                  • Allow unknown watching date

                    i'm a Trakt noob. when my favorite iPhone app completely shifted over to using Trakt for their backend, i had to create a Trakt account if i wanted to continue using it. so i did.

                    recently i learned that the Trakt website lets you also track Movie's & such too (yes, i had not visited the actual website until recently); so i began to explore the site & thought i'd start filling in what i've seen & wanna see etc.

                    i was astonished to find that i could NOT add any movies to the "History" & "Collection" areas without providing…

                      Your points make sense, but as before this is still not something we plan on supporting. I’ll move this to researching, but I don’t anticipate changing this in the near term.

                    • Track other forms of media

                      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.

                      • Add personal status to shows via the progress page.

                        I would be really cool if users can mark/flag their shows manually, for example:

                        Watching - If the user is actively watching it.
                        Renewed - If the user has caught up and the shows is on break.
                        Airing - If the user has caught up and the show is airing.
                        Hiatus - If the user has caught up and the show is on midseason break or something like that.
                        On-Hold - If the user has paused watching the show but hasn't dropped it.
                        Dropped - If the user doesn't intend to watch any-more.
                        Re-watching - If the user is re-watching…

                        • Filters & Sorting Order

                          I have some things to say about in this topic:

                          - Can you remove "People" type filter in watchlists, since you can't add nobody to it?
                          - Can you add a filter (hide/fade) to watchlisted items in other lists?
                          - Can you add a sort direction button to other sections too? Like, for example, collection, history, rating and progress. If you do this you can remove some sort orders from ratings and progress, since there are opposite ones.

                          Thank you.

                              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.

                            • Rotten Tomatoes score

                              I know this has been suggested (and declined) before, but adding Rotten Tomatoes rating would be great.

                              I know Trakt already has user ratings (I've been rating my watched titles myself) but it would still be nice to compare the community ratings with the critic's from Rotten Tomatoes.

                              It has an API - as opposed to IMDb, for instance - so it might be possible.

                              • Adjust "up next" episodes to be selected as earliest unwatched episode for people skipping around a series.

                                TL;DR: If I've viewed some episodes from season 1 and some from season 7, let me choose my "next episode" to default to the earliest unwatched episode (season 1) rather than the current default of the latest (season 7).

                                Shows without a plot (i.e. documentaries, sketch shows, etc.) are quite often watched out of order. For example, here's my viewing of ESPN's 30 for 30 series.

                                As you can see episode 3x03 is "up next" but I still have quite a few episodes before it in season 1 and 2 to watch. The true "next" episode for me to…

                                • Button report

                                  I believe that a button for reporting erroneous duplicate or registered titles would be good! For I have seen several series registered as movies and personal giving checkin anyway. And with the button would be easier to report, rather than being created topic here.

                                  • 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)

                                    • A options that you could subscribe or un subscribe from a show

                                      For example: if i watch one or two episodes it doesn't necessarily mean i want to continue to watch the show. therefore if you want, you can subscribe to it or dont, so it would show in my progress page and in my calendar

                                      • Make 'Data refresh' available for everyone (improves it for everyone ;)

                                        Hi,

                                        so I changed some shows in TMDB. I guess I could now manually refresh it in trakt. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this for everyone? Currently, I would have to inform you (or support) and they do it manually... if you could just tell all wrong show info complainers to go to TMDB, fix it and they just hit refresh when done, you will never have to fix something manually ;)

                                        thanks,
                                        chris

                                        • 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.
