  1. Reset shows - add episodes to watched history

    When I Reset a show, and the next episode to watch appears in "Up next to watch", I am not able to add the episode to watched history. The only alternative that comes up when I try is "Remove from history". So far I've solved it by going to the page for each episode, but it would be easier to have the option to register it as watched directly from "Up next to watch", as I do with unwatched episodes.

      This update will be released next week. When you click the purple check mark, there will be a new icon to allow adding an additional play for episodes. (movies will also get the same icon)

    • CSV download to include runtime

      I’d like the csv download of watch history to include the runtime of the thing you watched so you can do analysis on that and not just episode plays.

      • All Years in Review

        Would be interesting to have all the years in review on the same page.

        So

        .../year/2016 for 2016
        .../year/2017 for 2017
        .../year/2018 for 2018
        ../year or /years for a full review of 2018, 2017, 2016, ...

        • ABC (AU) network has the wrong icon

          The network icon for ABC (AU) in the year in review is the same as ABC (US). In fact it's an unrelated channel with its own icon: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/channels/abc.htm

          Also ABC2 (another channel on the same network) is missing an icon in year in review. It's recently been rebranded as ABC Comedy: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/channels/abc2.htm

          On the topic of Australian networks, Seven Network is also missing its icon: https://www.seven.com.au/

            Where did Bitcoin as a payment option go? Did you abandon it for good or is it just a short term problem? I wanted to renew my VIP status.

            • For the All Time Stats, some kind of graph of that shows what decade/year of the release dates of movies you watched

              I'm not sure if I am the only one, but I think it would be cool to see some kind of graph on the All Time Stats page where it shows the amount of movies you watched by release date. So I can see "Oh, I watched a lot of movies that came out in the year 1991" or "Oh, I watched a lot of movies that came out in the 90s or 80s".

              • All years in Review : optional start year

                I joined Trakt in 2014. So basically I didn't really know the watching dates of all the episodes & movies I've seen before November 2014.
                It would be interesting to be able to set the start year of the All Time years in review feature.

                Because at the moment 90% of my views are in 2014. Which makes all my stats totally inaccurate. I plan to change those viewing dates some day but just not today nor tomorrow.

                So I would use at the moment the All Time years in review feature from 2015 to 2018 and it would be…

                  • Add filter to see only currently available to purchase

                    Add a filter that allows you to only view films / shows that are currently available to purchase on disk or on digital, i.e. ignore films that's are both in theatres and in the void between theatre and full release.

                      You can actually do this already using advanced filtering. Click the advanced icon, then under “Available to watch on” you can choose “Any Service” to find only items available to stream somewhere. You can also choose “DVD & Blu-ray” to find only items with a physical release date.

                    • Provide greater details about Trakt.tv features

                      The differences between Standard Membership and VIP Membership are displayed in great detailed; however, there are two options for VIP memberships, with the second, VIP EP, at twice the cost of a (Standard) VIP membership. The description only shows VIP with Executive Producer credits but does not show any other details about the differences between both VIP memberships. After searching conducting extensive searches here on Trakt.tv, I was unable to find any information regarding this topic, hence this post. It would be helpful to see details accompany any feature, especially one that has a pricetag attached -- in other words,…

                        The features are currently the same for both levels. EP has the additional VIP EP badge and is a higher level of support if you really love Trakt and want to contribute a bit more to the project :) If we add EP only features, the trakt.tv/vip page will for sure be updated with that info.

                      • set cover image for a list?

                        It would be great to set a cover image for list as it's displayed on one's profile page, instead of a (seemingly) random TV show within the list.

                        Example: https://trakt.tv/users/mptpro

                        • 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

                            When you click on the December chart for MOVIES or TV SHOWS

                            It doesn't return anything : "Nothing to see here. Move along, move along."

                            That's because it doesn't select the correct end date.

                            Example :
                            for December 2016 : start_at=2016-12-01&end_at=2015-12-31T23:59:59

                                When we click on the profile widget on a TV Show, no problem it works.
                                When we click on a movie : we arrive on a sort of generic page containing : https://walter.trakt.tv/images/movies/000/087/254/fanarts/medium/c14b3cbc96.jpg with a "MOVIES" title

                                Is this a normal behavior ?

                                • Pushover notifications

                                  The only suggestions I could find for Pushover were from late 2013, almost 3 years ago. Is it possible that Pushover support could be reconsidered? Perhaps as a VIP-only option, given that the stated objection was the cost of a higher API request limit.

                                  • ics only contains episodes from current month

                                    Hi,

                                    I subscribed to my watched-ics feed with Google Calendar. When I looked at it today, I saw that the ics file only contains the watched episodes from the current month.
                                    Is this indended and how can I sync all data?
                                    The csv file contains all entries.

                                      • Advanced Search "Collected" sorting

                                        Imho it would make more sense to sort the "Collected" view by the number of owners and not collected episodes. Longer running shows and those with more episodes/season in general have a major advantage. How many people from the community that are involved is to me at least more interesting than the amount of episodes a show can rack up.

                                        • image size in widget URL.

                                          In my opinion this is a must. The URL being something with ?width400?height50

                                          At the moment, using with BBCode on sites unable to resize means huge 1000x160 image is hogging screen real estate and complaints being recieved by site owners.
