Comic Connect

Search box now searches more fields

July 6th, 2018

Up until today, the quick search box in Comic Connect (and the CLZ Cloud viewer for comic) only searched in the Series title, Issue title, Barcode and Tags fields. Pretty limited, but necessary for performance reasons.

However, with the new search engine we created last year, it became possible to search more fields while keeping the search super-fast. So lets use that capability!

From now on, if you use the search box, it will also search in many more fields. The complete lists of fields that are now searched:

  • Series Title
  • Issue Title
  • Barcode
  • Crossover
  • Story Arc
  • Series Group
  • Plot
  • Tags
  • Notes

Example: searching for the crossover “Crisis On Infinite Earths” will return all issues that are part of that crossover:

Movie Connect

Add Movies via the new Most Popular and New Releases tabs

July 5th, 2018

As some of you may know, we have a page detailing the 50 most popular movies of this week in our Core online movie database. It also details the new DVD, Blu-ray, 4K releases for last month and this month.

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could quickly add those to your Collection or Wish List? Yes. It would. So we added 2 new tabs to the Add Movies screen!

New: Most Popular tab

Open your Add Movies screen and click the “Most Popular” tab to see the 50 most popular movies of this week in our online movie database. Select one to add it to your collection or wish list!

New: New Releases tab

The second new tab in the Add Movies screen is the “New Releases” tab showing you all new releases of last month and this month. Use the little expand button to see which editions are new (including their release date!).

Movie Connect

Search box now searches more fields

July 3rd, 2018

Up until today, the quick search box in Movie Connect (and the CLZ Cloud viewer for movie) only searched in the Title, Year, Barcode and Tags fields. Pretty limited, but necessary for performance reasons.

However, with the new search engine we created last year, it became possible to search more fields while keeping the search super-fast. So lets use that capability!

From now on, if you use the search box, it will also search in many more fields. The complete lists of fields that are now searched:

  • Title
  • Title Extension
  • Original Title
  • Series
  • Episode Titles
  • Year
  • Barcode
  • Plot
  • Notes
  • Tags

Example: searching for “hogwarts” will return all Harry Potter movies, because the word appears in the plot summary:

Newsletter

[CLZ News] More fields added to Connect, Cloud Sync and CLZ mobile apps

June 29th, 2018

This June 2018 newsletter is all about the extra fields that we added to the movie, comic and music editions of Connect, the CLZ Cloud syncing and the CLZ mobile apps, all based on your requests and suggestions in the past few years.

More fields for Cloud, Connect and CLZ mobile apps

For many years, the CLZ Cloud has been at the center of all our cataloging solutions. Starting out basic, with most of the details shared from our Core, but through time enhanced with more and more cloud fields, so that you can sync your own data between desktop, mobile and Connect.

Adding new fields to the CLZ Cloud is a *lot* of work, as it requires changes to the cloud storage itself, to the Connect web-apps and to the syncing system. Then when that’s done, all desktop programs and mobile apps need to updated to support the new sync fields. Quite a project, involving *all* CLZ developers.

To make this as efficient as possible, we usually bundle the field additions, doing all requested fields in one go. Last year, the CLZ Clouds for books and games have received a big upgrade with extra fields, plus we added track list syncing to the music cloud.

Now it is time to add a lot of fields to the movie, comic and music editions:

New fields for movie cloud:

  • Is TV Series (yes/no)
  • Release Date
  • Runtime
  • Audience Rating
  • Region
  • Studio
  • Distributor
  • IMDb Number
  • IMDb Rating
  • Box Set

All of the above fields are now fully editable in Movie Connect, fully editable in CLZ Movies and now sync your own data between Movie Collector, CLZ Movies and Movie Connect. Of course this requires the latest versions of Movie Collector and CLZ Movies.

New fields for comic cloud:

  • Edition
  • Crossover
  • Story Arc
  • Imprint
  • Age
  • Cover Price
  • Cover Date

All of the above fields are now fully editable in Comic Connect, fully editable in CLZ Comics and now sync your own data between Comic Collector, CLZ Comics and Comic Connect. Of course this requires the latest versions of Comic Collector and CLZ Comics.

New fields for music cloud:

  • Original Release Date
  • Packaging
  • Media Condition
  • Vinyl Color
  • Vinyl Weight
  • RPM
  • Disc Titles
  • Composer Sort Names

All of the above fields are now fully editable in Music Connect.
Updates to support the new fields are coming up for all Windows, Mac, iOS and Android editions, within 4 weeks.

New in Connect: selection checkboxes and action bar

A cool user interface update for the Connect software, in which we makes it easier to select items and easier to perform batch actions on the selected items.

Select using checkboxes

To select items, just click the checkboxes on the left of each entry in the list. Checkboxes are also available in Card View and Images View, just hover your mouse over an item.

No more need to go into “Select Mode” first. The Select Mode is automatically activated as soon as you checkbox the first movie, clearly indicated by the blue Batch Action Bar that replace the regular toolbar.

Batch Action Bar

While in Select Mode, the blue Batch Action Bar appears, always showing you the number of selected entries. Also:

  • Use the “Select all” checkbox to select all entries in the current list in one go
  • Use the “x Cancel” button on the right to leave Select Mode
  • And of course, use any of the action buttons (Edit, Delete, Print, Export, Duplicate and Loan) to perform an action on the selected items

New in Movie Connect: Automatically add multi-movie box-sets

Yes, this time-saving tool finally made it to the Connect edition!

See it in action:

Just use the enhanced Add Movies screen to find a box set, either by title or by barcode, and our Core immediately shows which movies are in the box. Click Add to Collection at the bottom right and all contained movies will be added to your database, automatically linked by a box set entry.

Enjoy!

Music Connect

More editable fields!

June 27th, 2018

By popular demand, we have added 8 more fields to Music Connect, and we’ve moved some fields around. Most new fields can be found on the new “Edition” tab in the edit album popup!

  • Packaging
  • Media Condition
  • Vinyl Color
  • Vinyl Weight
  • RPM
  • Disc Titles
  • Composer Sort Names (use the Manage Pick Lists page to modify sort names of composers)
  • Original Release Date (this one exists next to Release Date)

Of course, most fields can also folder grouped on, added as column, sorted on, etc.

Note: We renamed the old “Condition” field to “Package/Sleeve Condition” so you now have a “Package/Sleeve Condition” field and a “Media Condition” field.

We will be adding these fields to the desktop and mobile app sync within a couple of weeks too.
