New: “Search-As-You-Type” suggestions when adding movies by title

January 20th, 2017

If you are adding most of your movies “By Title”, then this will be a huge time-saver.

Here’s how the new “Search-As-You-Type” feature works:

  1. In the Add Movies Automatically screen, just start typing the first letters of the title you want to add.
  2. While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the five most popular titles that match, including the release year and a small thumbnail image.
  3. For recent / popular movies, it usually takes only 2 or 3 letters before it shows up. For older or less popular movies, type a few more letters.
  4. Once you see your movie appear, use the arrow keys to select it, then hit Enter.
  5. Then under Search Results, that exact movie will be listed, automatically Previewed on the right.
  6. Click the Add Selected button to add it to your database.

Important: this is an *extra* tool, that makes it easier and faster to add recent and/or popular movies. To find any older or less popular movie, just type a few more letters.
It is not a replacement of the normal title search, which still works like it always did 🙂
