    • Select preferred "Watch Now" services

      Reelgood, Trakt's (primary?) "Watch Now" data partner, could possibly provide this information somehow with an update to the existing two-way sync feature, if implementing Trakt's own UI for it isn't feasible due to available dev time etc.

      The main use cases I see are filtering lists and other views to show only content the user has access to through a service subscription, and prioritizing which two "Watch Now" buttons get the prime slot below the poster image on pages where that applies. (Right now, even shows that are available on e.g. Hulu display Amazon & iTunes purchase options there, forcing…

      • 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

        • 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.

          • Add movie studios to year review

            In the Shows Year in Review we can see how many shows we saw form each Network. It would be cool if we could do the same for the movies and see the Studios!

            • Automatic Dark Knight Mode

              On twitter (at least the mobile app) you can schedule the night mode on 'automatic' so that it turns on at sunset and off at sunrise.
              Based on the Time Zone settings we chose I guess this could be possible

              Thanks

                Great idea and something I’ve been thinking about too. I would probably allow the user to specific their own start and end time, and possibly do something automatic if I can find a good way based on your time zone.

              • 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…

                • Calendar alerts when movies or TV shows in wishlist are on TV

                  I've been looking everywhere for a solution, without any luck. I currently have Plex and their DVR service and it does a great job of telling me when new or old episodes of TV shows that I have collected are coming up on OTA TV. So say, I have the X Files in my collection, Plex will then let me know when upcoming episodes are coming up on TV and let me setup scheduled recordings to fill in all of the blanks.

                  My issue is, what if I don't have any episodes of a particular series in my collection already?…

                  • 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!

                      • 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.

                        • 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).

                            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.

                              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.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Make spoiler setting affect feeds

                                          It doesn't affect iCal at least.
