How can we improve Trakt.tv?

Compact display in upcoming schedule for the same TV Show

Netflix sometimes releases all the episodes of a season at once.

Therefore we have 10/15 episodes displayed in one column.

Narcos
3x01
Season Premiere
06:00 on Netflix
Narcos
3x02
06:00 on Netflix
Narcos
3x03
06:00 on Netflix
Narcos
3x04
06:00 on Netflix
Narcos
3x05
06:00 on Netflix
Narcos
3x06
06:00 on Netflix
Narcos
3x07
06:00 on Netflix

Wouldn't be nicer to have just one time the TV Show name ?

Narcos
3x01
Season Premiere
06:00 on Netflix
3x02
06:00 on Netflix
3x03
06:00 on Netflix
3x04
06:00 on Netflix
3x05
06:00 on Netflix
3x06
06:00 on Netflix
3x07
06:00 on Netflix

Or even just once the air time since it's identical

Narcos
3x01
3x02
3x03
3x04
3x05
3x06
3x07
Season Premiere
06:00 on Netflix

In both cases you win space in the grid.

        Yep I was talking about the upcoming schedule and not the calendar since you can have different designs for it. It was harder to bring something up.

        Cool, thanks for clearing that up.

        I think the discussion applies to both places, but yeah the dashboard is an easier use case since there aren't different designs for it. Something can probably be done there a lot easier than the calendar and might be a good starting point.

        In general, I like and agree with helping to condense shows that release all the episodes at once. However, there are several challenges which is why we haven't done something like this. There are action buttons attached to each episode (watched, collected, lists, rating, watch now) so if they are hidden, all those actions go away as well. There are also a lot of different calendar views, so its a lot of work to ensure each view combination works correctly both on desktop, tablets and mobile. Those are big issues to overcome which is why it hasn't been a focus.

        One idea I have is to condense shows with 3 or more episodes to only show the first and last episode, then add a new button to expand and fill in all the other episodes. Basically, it would still cut down the info by a lot, but a simple click would add back all the episodes and still retain the per episode features we currently have.

        How about....

        Narcos
        3x01 Season Premiere -
        3x07 6:00 on Netflix

        Or (I like this better)

        Narcos \/
        3x01-3x07 Season Premier
        6:00 on Netflix

        And it would work for shows that air multiple episodes in the middle of the season.

        Narcos \/
        3x07-3x012
        6:00 on Netflix

        That way it goes all the way down to 3 lines no matter how many episodes there are.

        The \/ symbol could be a drop down that would expand showing the episode names and allowing you to click to a specific episode.

        Like this.
