How can we improve Trakt.tv?

Import watched status from Netflix csv

Hi, from my account in Netflix I can download a csv of everything I've ever watched and the date I watched it. It would be tremendous if I could import all that into Trakt. Even better if I import is more than once, it shouldn't duplicate - such that I can do it periodically.

        We need to email Netflix to add more information to the CSV or at least "Episode 1" so it will be more accurate than title match.

        I am sending one now.

        I looked at the CSV file, but the data is very limited and it would be tough to accurately match episodes.

        For example, Netflix gives this:
        Lost in Space: Season 1: "Danger, Will Robinson"

        So if we didn't have an exact title match, we wouldn't know which episode was watched. Using the names to match is not super accurate. I think a CSV import would be possible if Netflix provided IDs and actual episode numbers.
