v17.1.1: A completely new Add Movies screen!

May 17th, 2017

Big changes today! The Add Movies Automatically screen is now called “Add Movies from CLZ Core” and has been completely re-designed and re-built from scratch, to make it both easier-to-use and easier-on-the-eye:

  • A simple two-panel design: Search Results on the left, Preview on the right.
  • Big blue buttons for the main actions, Searching and Adding, can’t miss ’em 🙂
  • The Search Results now show cover images and format icons.

See it in action:

Here’s the full list of improvements:

Add by Title improvements

  • Automatic Preview, just select a result (no more need for double clicking).
  • “TV Series only” is now under little arrow to the left of the search box.
  • Expand movie entries to show edition list (arrow on the right).
  • New: filter edition list by Format (under “hamburger menu” top right).
  • Can’t find your movie? Choose”Add this movie anyway” at the bottom.
  • Or use the “CLZ Core: Report Missing Movie” entry to let us know.

Add by Barcode improvements

  • Barcode Queue and Search Results are now integrated into one list.
  • Barcodes added to the queue instantly show title, cover image and format icon.
  • Use “Add [x] movies” on the bottom left to add all movies.
  • Use “Add [movie title]” on the bottom right to add the selected movie only.

Other improvements

  • Set or change the Format before adding, using the new Format selector.
  • Set or change the cover before adding, with the Change Cover button.
  • Use the “hamburger menu” top right to:
    • Connect to CLZ Barry
    • Find OPN-2001 or Flic scanner
    • Open the web-cam scanner
    • Configure CLZ Core data download settings
