How can we improve Trakt?

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.

    maybe try to match and if it's not 100% accurate then show a "is this correct?" page? Then store the "netflix name" and second user will have a good match.

    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.
