  1. TV shows "On Hold" list

    I'd like to divide the shows I'm in the middle of between "on hold" and "watching." It would make organizing a lot easier.

      Finally, added “On hold” list, could you guys to check if everything is fine?

      You can add something to it on the detail page of the series.

      ON HOLD lists are enabled on the website and Simkl Lists apps. If you find places where On hold does not work, please let us know.

        • Quickly mark next episode as watched from the dashboard

          Meaning, if you are on the dashboard and want to mark an episode as watched, you can press somewhere on the cover which will be highlighted with some kind of simple icon.
          Perhaps lower end?

            • Button "spoiler"

              If we'll comment some episode, we don't want to make spoiler for our friends. We can use button "spoiler" and if someone want to read, need to click on this button.

                  Season premieres and TV Show premieres are now in different color. We don’t always have info about finale, so can’t mark finale in other color yet.

                • Filters for calendar

                  Add filters to calendar, to make possible to view only the episodes of followed shows

                  • Add a "Related"-tab

                    Add a "Related"-tab.
                    When viewing the page for a movie/tv show/anime, there are info tabs available, for instance, if I visit the page for Fate/Zero, I can see 6 tabs: Summary, Episodes, Shop, Activity, Screenshots & Cast. However, there is 1 essential tab missing, namely a tab called "Relations", this tab should contain a list for the other anime's in the Fate Series. The ideal view mode for this tab, should be like the content shown for "People who liked Fate/Zero also Liked..."

                        • Needs prequel & sequel Imformation.

                          Just as the title says, the only thing stopping me right now from becoming a SIMKL user is this.

                          Besides that guys keep up the great work and the user base will grow I love the concept.

                          • When you select on a tvshow/anime "complete" it mark automatically al the episodes as seen

                            Because now you select "complete" and it do not mark no episode as seen

                            • ctrl- click something

                              Please. It would be more comfortable if when I ctrl- click some title... that movie appears in another tab and not in the one that I am already in. Because I usually like to navigate more before looking at the information of 2 or 5 movies that got my attention. Thank you!

                                      Currently, Simkl does not have options to watch all TV Shows, Anime or Movies. However, Simkl provides links for Netflix, Hulu and Crunchyroll where you can watch the TV shows and Anime.

                                      Simkl helps you track what you’re watching and discover new shows & movies. We have built the Simkl™ TV Tracker for passionate people who like to watch TV Shows, Anime and Movies on their computers, and who are tired of manually tracking all shows that they watch using outdated manual watchlists. For people who are geeky enough to want a hi-tech automated Watchlist solution no matter how you watch – download video files on your computer or watch streaming video online, on Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, etc…

                                        • "Specials" considered as normal episodes

                                          For example in Downton Abbey, all season finales are called "Special", but they are actually just normal episodes. When I want to mark those as watched, they don't appear on my dashbord and I have to go to the "Specials" section to mark them. But very often this section changes its order and e.g. Special 5 becomes Special 8 or something like that.
                                          At least for Downton Abbey, changing those Specials to normal episodes would be great, so they don't get mixed up with Behind the Scenes episodes or so!
