Custom Calendars

Modified on Sat, 21 Aug 2021 at 11:19 PM

The built in calendars are all cool, but might not work for all your scenarios. Introducing…custom calendars! All Trakt VIP members can create custom calendars based on any list — including your own and any other public lists. You can also create calendars by saving your advanced filters.

A few useful examples:

The possibilities are pretty endless since you can create a list with any content you’d like, but here are a few ideas to get started.

Specific calendars for everyone in your house.

Let’s say you enjoy watching Limitless, Suits, Game of Thrones, and House of Cards. Your partner however, likes watching Silicon Valley, Veep, and Gotham. Your main calendar will contain all these shows plus any others you’re watching. However, if you create 2 new lists, add the specific shows to each, then subscribe — you can each easily keep track of what’s on separately.

Keep up with your friend’s top shows.

One of your Trakt friends has a list with his favorite new TV shows of 2021. You can subscribe to the list and see when everything is on. When your friend adds new shows to the list, your calendar subscription will be automatically updated too.

Justin’s IMDB: Most Popular Movies list has the top 100 movies that IMDB user’s are talking about. Subscribe to this list so you can plan your next trip to the cinema.

Specific TV Networks

If you want to keep up with only the TV networks you like, you can do that too. Start by going to the All TV Shows calendar, click the advanced icon, then specify the networks. After applying the filters, click the + and give it a name. For example, create a Premium Networks calendar by specifying AMC, Amazon, HBO, Hulu, Netflix, and Showtime as your networks.

How do I create custom calendars?

When viewing any list, click the Subscribe button in the top right. You’ll be redirected to your new custom calendar and a new item will be added to the sidebar of your calendar section. You can also subscribe from any list overview page by clicking the icon to the right of the list name.

Calendar sidebar.

All your custom calendars will be displayed in the sidebar for quick access. You can view the original list by clicking the user avatar or the link in the description in the top left of the page. Remove any subscription by hovering over the title and clicking the ⦻ icon to the left.

Saving advanced filters.

Another way to create custom calendars is to save your advanced filters. From any calendar page, click the Advanced icon and apply your filters. Once reloaded, click the + icon to save them for later. Saved filters also show up on the sidebar for quick access.
