  1. Edit watched status by date (in case of client glitch)

    A misbehaving client can quickly mark thousands of movies or episodes as marked, incorrectly. To undo this takes considerable manual time. Since an error like this occurs quickly at once, there should be an option to unwatch everything watched on a specific date. This would allow a quick and easy solution for a major issue.

    (In this case, I believe a dog sat on my keyboard. By hitting "W", it marked hundreds of movies as watched, wrongly.)

    • IFTTT playback status and scrobble triggers

      I would really like to IFTTT triggers such as:

      - Movie playback started
      - Movie playback paused
      - Movie playback resumed
      - Movie playback finished
      - Movie scrobbled
      - TV ep playback started
      - TV ep playback paused
      - TV ep playback resumed
      - TV ep playback finished
      - TV ep scrobbled

      These could be used for all sorts of things such as triggering Hue lights to dim/turn off/turn on etc. during movie playback. Or adding the name of movies I watched together with the date I watched them to a Google spreadsheet.

      Any chance this might happen?

      I know…

        I love the idea, but its going to take IFTTT wanting to do a deeper integration with Trakt. I’ve reached out a few times before, but maybe if users also message them it will get more traction.

      • Add filter for most popular(most followed/commented...) user lists

        One thing I would love to see coming back from old site is the popular
        lists section where you could browse through most popular (liked/followed/commented) user lists. In the past I used this to discover some great movies this way! Example for a former popular list:
        http://trakt.tv/users/_varg/lists/great-movies-you-may-have-never-heard-of

        I know that I can use the search to look for personal lists using:

        http://trakt.tv/search/lists?q=afi

        But there's no way to filter for most followed lists (month/year/week) as far as I know. What do you think?

        • Delete history from a specific date

          I recently had an error (probably a problem with an app) and during a single day, my episode play count for all my shows doubled/tripled! I know you can remove the watched statuses one by one, but as I now have thousands of watches in one day, that is just impossible! Also, removing the watched for the entire show is just as absurd! Is there a way to remove all of your plays/watches of a specific date (say Feb 20), so I won't have these extra watches messing up my record? If there isn't, is there a way to implement…

          • Idea: Community Moderators

            Hi,

            Trakt is growing bigger and bigger, with the new v2 it's obvious that you guys are a little bit shortstaffed.

            It isn't easy to manage 800k users and this huge pile of data with 10 people or something like that. hence, there is a need for external voluntary help.

            For example, you have GoodReads, it's a huge social network for books, it relays on a 'librarian' system where people can apply to be a 'librarian', a librarian can add books and edit current ones, add posters and stuff like that, then there's superior librarians who have more power and…

            • network activity

              Please make the Network Activity section on the dashboard bigger.

              A lot of my friends (and me including) love to marathon tv shows and at the moment I can just see the last 9 episodes. If my friends marathon a show I won't be able to see any other activity and I just don't want to check everyone's history individually.
              If this idea messed up the new dashboard, then it would also be an idea to add a "Read more" button next to that section and that button could redirect us to the last 30 or 40 activities/entries of our…

              • Filter History by month

                It would be awesome if you could restore the functionality to filter the history page by month and get an overview of how many episodes and movies I watched during that month.

                • [suggestion][bug] Adding New shows to watchlist as a "TV show" instad of "1st episode"

                  Under calendar, when you go to "All / New Shows" and you click add to watchlist, only specific episode is added to watchlist.

                  Suggestion: Add whole "TV show" to watch list instead of episode only.
                  Else please change "All / New Shows" to "All / New Episodes". It is misleading.

                  Bug: Also in current state under new TV shows, added series episodes do not show up under "My / TV Shows", i.e. on your calendar.

                  • Add items to a list from the list page

                    When making a list, you have to go to a movie's page, then add it to the list. It would be so much easier if we could also add several movies to the list at once. For example: When you create a list, the first thing you see is an overview of all movies/people/shows/etc. (with search and filter options), and you only have to check a box next to (or on) the item to add it. I'd love that! :)

                      • Personal Top 10

                        It will be cool if everyone had a custom Top 10 for both shows and movies and we will be able to choose which show/movie are in the Top and choose the order.

                            • Give lists a type, then use that in filter and search

                              Lists would be a great way to find new shows to watch, but when searching for a show in lists, most of the results are of the 'shows I've watched/want to watch' type and therefore not helpful.

                              If lists had a category attribute, (For instance: Best Of, Favorite, Watchlist, Watched, Personal, Recommendation) and that category could be used to filter search, then the results could, eventually, be much more helpful.

                                While the upcoming schedule is great, the fact that it includes shows on my watchlist makes certain days rather long. Perhaps we can have an option in the settings to display only a schedule that is the shows we've marked as watched.

                                • Search for show(s) in lists

                                  As a way to find new shows, and compatible users, it would be great to be able to search inside lists.

                                  The current list search seems to find list names, not content in the list.

                                  A couple of regular language examples:
                                  "Show me lists that have The Hidden Fortress"
                                  "Show me lists that include Star Wars and The Hidden Fortress"

                                        • Next chapter to check-in shown on the serie's homepage.

                                          It would be great if the next chapter to check-in was shown on the serie's homepage.
