v4.11: More editable fields!

June 18th, 2018

By popular demand, we have added 10 more editable fields to CLZ Movies. Two completely new fields (Is TV Series and Box Set) and 8 fields that were already available as automatic Core fields but are now fully editable:

Completely New Fields:

  • Is TV Series (Yes/No). For your entries, indicate whether these are movies or TV series. Use Is TV Series folders to split them in the main list. This is a new field. Default values for your entries have been set using our Core central database, but you may want to run though your list to check and correct as needed.
  • Box Set. Enter a box set title in your movies to make them part of a box set. You can see the box set information at the top of the details panel for each of the movies inside that box set. Also available as a folder option.

Fields that are now fully editable:

  • Release Date. Previous only available as Release Year, this is now a full date field.
  • Runtime. Previously set automatically, now fully editable.
  • IMDb Number. Previously set automatically, now fully editable.
  • IMDb Rating. Previously set automatically, now fully editable.
  • Audience Rating. Previously set automatically, now fully editable. Also available as a folder option.
  • Region. Previously set automatically, now fully editable. Allows multiple values. Also available as a folder option.
  • Studio. Previously set automatically, now fully editable. Allows multiple values. Also available as a folder option.
  • Distributor. Previously set automatically, now fully editable. Also available as a folder option.

But wait, that’s not all: All the above fields now also sync to and from the CLZ Cloud!

Secure HTTPS connections, for your security and privacy

As indicated in our recent GDPR email, we are updating our software and services, to be more secure and to better protect your privacy.

Starting with version 4.11 CLZ Movies now uses secure HTTPS connections for all communications with our servers:

  • for logging in with your username and password
  • for syncing your data with CLZ Cloud
  • for sending your searches to Core.

To make this possible, we have created new secure “entry points” on our servers, that are only allowing secure HTTPS connections. The new CLZ Movies app only communicates with those secure entry points.

For your privacy and security, we strongly recommend updating your app to v4.11.
