    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.

        What I'm looking for is an app that that can help me organize my screening process.

        As I look for shows or movies to watch, I go through the following processes:

        1. look at reviews and basic plot summaries
        2. watch the first few minutes or maybe the first episode

        If I decide not to go forward, I'd like to be able to see a list of movies / shows that I haven't screened out.

        This general feature would support the top-requested feature: https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/4936616-mark-show-as-abandoned-or-dropped-when-you-inten

        There's also been a couple other similar requests:

        As a user, I should be able to mark shows as "not interested" and see those filtered out automatically from my the lists of possible movies, searches, etc.

        There are several ideas similar to this, including:
        https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/4508725-ability-to-mark-movies-shows-as-not-interested
        https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/6428021-skip-unwanted-movies-or-tv-shows

        This is also similar to the most voted idea: https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/4936616-mark-show-as-abandoned-or-dropped-when-you-inten

        I'd still would like to see proper support for marking series as dropped

      • Justin NemethAdminJustin Nemeth (Founder, trakt) commented  · 

        To recap my previous replies, you can hide shows by clicking the Ø icon when viewing your dashboard up next, progress page, or calendar. There is no need to unwatch the items. You can unhide from trakt.tv/settings/hidden if needed too.

        I was able to get things off my progress by searching for the show, clicking the "Watched History" purple check mark, then selecting "Remove All".

      • ZapataZapata commented  · 

        I also think this is a great idea. It would help clean up my "progress" in exodus kodi. I have more than a few duds I'd like to get rid of.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Yes, absolutely. Maybe not drop it off the radar completely but get it out of the 'must watch' list.

        this is what hannah posted: and its perfect for what i want!
        This is exactly what I've been looking for. The option to specify that I have seen however many episodes of a show, but chose to not continue watching it. For example, watching the pilot but not liking it enough to go any further (while still being marked down so I don't forget about it and try to watch the show again later).

        Or, as a better example: watching several seasons of a show and deciding that it has gone downhill and no longer having any desire to see the remaining episodes. Trakt continually reminds you that you still have X number of episodes to watch even when I don't want to watch them, I'd like to be able to mark them down as "crap I have no interest in any more so please stop showing them to me".

        so plz add this dropped abandoned idea in this way would be great

      • kveezy23kveezy23 commented  · 

        It'd be nice to have for a personal record. For instance, if I come across a show I dropped some time in the future, I can look and see that I dropped it instead of wondering why I didn't finish it and avoid wasting my time and interest.

      • manoconnormanoconnor commented  · 

        The interesting part of this idea is not the ability to hide the show from your "watched progress", but the stats of how many people have abandoned a show.

        I think that a nice implementation of this idea could be to have a special list "Abandoned" in which I can insert the shows I've abandoned.

        (Sorry for my bad English)

      • brewforbrainsbrewforbrains commented  · 

        i think it would be interesting to see this and the stats where other users decided to abandon a show

      • tvtimerstvtimers commented  · 

        This feature seems to be an "opt out" approach where you selectively remove shows you don't want to show up on deck.

        What would be easier for me is to have an "opt in" approach in which only collected series show up on deck.

        Any chance that this is already possible and I just can't find the appropriate settings?

      • lonelyfairielonelyfairie commented  · 

        It would be great if we had this, one because it could be helpful as someone said to "send a message" to show producers about dropped shows, second because of external apps that use our trakt account (e.g DuckieTV) etc and also so those shows are taken out of consideration for recommendations, sometimes you watched the first 3 episodes of a show and it sucked so I don't want to have related recommendations for it.

      • VickyVicky commented  · 

        Thank you. I'll look into this.

      • Justin NemethAdminJustin Nemeth (Founder, trakt) commented  · 

        @Vicky we expose the hidden items for apps and plugins to use, but it sounds like whichever you are using might not use that data to hide within their app. I would recommend sending a feature request to the app developer.
