  1. 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.

    • Import from IMDb

      It would be nice if there would be a function to import my imdb watchlist into trakt, so I don't have to do all movies manually

      • Create lists from a CSV file import

        Before trakt, I used to have a list with all the titles I've watched and liked. It's painful to manually sync that list (thousands of entries) with trakt.tv

        It would be very useful to have an ability to sync them automatically.

        • 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.

            It would be nice if we could avoid posting duplicates on the VIP Forum or even make faster researches.

            • 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.

              • Family accounts

                I use XBMC, and make use of profiles for; myself, the wife, and the children.

                I would like the ability in trakt to create a family account, so we can all still have separate libraries and use different accounts to scrobble. However via the family account they are linked, so there is an overview of what we have all watched etc recently.

                Also, possibly the ability when viewing a family members activity to say "I watched this with them too" and have it show up in your feed as well. Or a popup in XBMC much like the rating dialog,…

                • 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.

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

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Plays by time of the day

                          In the Year In review feature you have two sections

                          - Movie plays by year/month/week/...
                          - Episode plays by year/month/week/...

                          What about

                          - Movie plays by time of the day
                          - Episode plays by time of the day

                          It could either be split by periods

                          - Morning : 6 AM-10 AM
                          - Midday : 11 AM - 2 PM
                          - Afternoon : 3 PM - 6 PM
                          - Evening : 7 PM - 9 PM
                          - Night : 10 PM - 5 AM

                          or

                          just simply split into 24 columns for all the different hours when a play is finished

                          • 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…

                            • [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.

                              • 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.

                                • Import checked list from icheckmovies

                                  As a new user who has found in love with this website (you guys rock!) one thing I would love to do would be to merge my checked movies into trakt.

                                  I cant possibly force myself to go after over 1500 movies, so an import option would be ginormous good news for a user like me. Icheckmovies and maybe other sites provide export lists, so in theory it isnt to tricky.

                                  • Import from GetGlue

                                    Is it possible that you add an option to import GetGlue checkin data? As a way to easily kickstart your Trakt profile. I've been using GetGlue for some time now and want to switch. They have an api (http://o.getglue.com/api) but I'm afraid I'm no developer...

                                      • Year to date - Highest rated tv should only be for year.

                                        The Year to Date page shows Highest Rated TV Shows, which I thought would only be taken from this year's views. However, it is taking the ratings of all my viewed shows since the highest rated one I haven't watched in 10 years.

                                        I suggest limiting this section to only include views that were in the calendar year.
