  1. Improve PWA

    I'm an Android user and I've often searched for native apps that integrate with Trakt but I always end up returning to the Trakt website itself because it offers more features, is more robust & also is quite quick.

    For a better integration into the OS I always add the website to my homescreen to have the Chrome bar removed and have a separate entry in the Recents with the Trakt icon.

    Now over the last few years/months Google has improved upon this simple add to home screen feature and offered "deeper" integration.

    For example PWAs can show up in…

    • Create a Watching Challenge similar to Goodread's Reading Challenge

      I could explain this idea, but I think the Goodread's blog post ( https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/1130-read-more-this-year-with-the-2018-reading-challenge ) does it better than I could. Obviously this is a low priority suggestion and more for fun, but it does have an element of that newfangled gamification thing that was all the hype.

      • metadata bulk changes

        I hope I am not just missing such a thing .... but I was looking at the options of adding metadata to entities. I have a large collection, and going in to each one of them individually is just not something I would take the time to do. Are there options to select multiple entities and do a bulk apply of a set of metadata? I do see the ability to change each individual entity

        • TMDB Episode groups

          TMDB went ahead and made episodes groups available in the API. TVDB failed kinda hard with their V2 and has this feature nowhere with an ETA. Would it make sense to implement them anyways based on the corresponding TMDB#? The major issues will most likely be things containing specials but the same already holds true with today's mappings.

          • Automatic Dark Knight Mode

            On twitter (at least the mobile app) you can schedule the night mode on 'automatic' so that it turns on at sunset and off at sunrise.
            Based on the Time Zone settings we chose I guess this could be possible

            Thanks

              Great idea and something I’ve been thinking about too. I would probably allow the user to specific their own start and end time, and possibly do something automatic if I can find a good way based on your time zone.

            • Add started/unstarted filter and percent completed sorting option to lists.

              The lists are great, and especially the native watchlist...

              But it'd be great if I could filter out the ones that I've started or have not started. Furthermore, the ability to sort by the watch completion percentage would be great!

                • Horizontal cast list is unwieldy

                  The horizonal cast list has some issues worth mentioning:

                  1. Captions are very small and often abbreviated, requiring mouseover;
                  2. Emphasis on pictures makes it look nice, but trying to find someone by name or character name can take more time than necessary if the cast is extensive;
                  3. Horizontal scrolling on mobile can be problematic (more often than not the touch sensor registers the slight vertical move of a finger and starts vertical scroll instead of horizontal), and even on desktop clicking and dragging the scrollbar is clunky compared to using the scroll wheel.

                  I'd much prefer it to…

                  • Only collected shows in progress page

                    I think it would be great if there was an additional filter for collected/uncollected shows in progress (watched) page. For example some show has 5 seasons but in my country I only have 3 - if i could mark "show only collected" then after watching these 3 seasons that show would disappear from my progress - until i'll collect more seasons...

                    • Show user's rating when displaying item in user's context

                      I find it really interesting to see how other users have rated a movie or show and how they rated others. Unfortunately, trakt currently only surfaces this information sparingly (AFAICT only for friends on an item's page and in a user's ratings tab). This is especially apparent when browsing the site while not logged in.

                      It would be great if trakt could show a user's rating when a movie or show is display in a user's context, i.e. on their profile, history, lists etc.

                      E.g. the profile already shows a user's recently watched episodes and movies and that would be…

                      • Turn "Up next to watch" on the Dashboard into a sideways scroll

                        Instead of having to click "SEE MORE", we could just press a left or right arrow that would show everything we have on "Up next to watch".

                        • Alert me to special local screenings of movies on my Watchlist (besides new releases)

                          It'd be great to be notified on the Dashboard when there's a special showing happening near me of movies that aren't new releases. There are lots of small, independent theaters that do special screenings, re-releases, or film festivals, or whatever.

                          For example, I had Vertigo on my Watchlist, and there was a showing at my local theater, and it would've been great if that appeared on my Dashboard.

                          I know getting to that data is difficult, and a lot of it is probably impossible to get in a usable, automatable format, but there are a lot of showtime sites that…

                          • Progress Filters

                            In Progress view, there are options to filter by Completed and Ended. However this filters as Completed OR Ended. I'd like for an option to filter as Completed AND Ended, so any that I have seen all episodes but is an ongoing series is still visible. And any that have ended but I haven't finished watching are visible.

                            Thanks

                            • Calendar alerts when movies or TV shows in wishlist are on TV

                              I've been looking everywhere for a solution, without any luck. I currently have Plex and their DVR service and it does a great job of telling me when new or old episodes of TV shows that I have collected are coming up on OTA TV. So say, I have the X Files in my collection, Plex will then let me know when upcoming episodes are coming up on TV and let me setup scheduled recordings to fill in all of the blanks.

                              My issue is, what if I don't have any episodes of a particular series in my collection already?…

                                  For instance, when I am following someone I like to keep track of what they are watching to see if there's something interesting for me.

                                  Instead of only exploring my friends' activity on my dashboard I would like to receive real-time notifications when they start watching a movie or episode.

                                    Hi

                                    I like the new reset progress feature however can you add a way to reset a show progress from it's show page. it's kind of a pain having to trawl through the progress page to find a show to rest the progress

                                    Thanks

                                      Hey Justin could you fix the runtimes on https://trakt.tv/shows/frozen-planet/seasons/1 the first episode is correct at 58 minute runtime but episodes 2-7 are wrong. They should all be 58 minutes. Thanks

                                      • Share TV Episode only if the Show is active

                                        Right now I don't share TV Episode on twitter because i don't want to spam my followers,
                                        but for series that are active (by that i mean, it's currently releasing one episode of a season each week)
                                        Because of the delay between episodes, i wouldn't spam my followers and the show is airing so it's great to share that you saw the last episode released.
                                        I think for the last episode of the season you could make it so the Show is considered active until one week after the last airing of the show.
