Next to barcode scanning, adding by series title is the other way to add comics to your app.
In general, use the Add By Series option if you:
- can’t find a comic by its barcode. The comic may still be listed in our Core, just without barcode. Adding by Series lets you find and add it anyway.
- need to add many issues from one series. Adding by series lets you checkbox many issues and add them all in one go, which can be much faster than scanning barcode one by one.
Some tips for using the By Series option:
Make the best use of the suggestions list
When you start typing in the search box, a suggestions “dropdown” will instantly appear, showing the top 5 most popular series from our Core that match the letters you have typed. As soon as the suggestions list show the series you were looking for, tap it and you’re done. No need to continue typing. Super quick, super efficient!
Tip: To get the best “search-as-you-type” suggestions, start typing the most unique word in the title. In any case, always skip words like “the”.
E.g. when searching for “The Batman Who Laughs”, skip “the”, even skip “batman”, just start typing “who” or “lau” and it will instantly give you the right series at the top of the suggestions.
But wait: there’s more than 5 results!
The 5 suggestions are super useful, however: these are not the actual search results! To perform the actual search and see all results, tap the line that says “Show all results for …” or hit the Search button on the on screen keyboard.
