Please add a button, just like the add to watchlist one on the movies pages, to the people pages. So we can add directors or other people we want to follow to our lists directly from their page. And also u can add an icon or something that lets us know when their profiles have been updated in our lists. Like a watchlist where we can keep track of what we like. Thanks
I have just created a list for Actors/Actresses so that I can go to them easier to see their latest Films.
How can I add actors/actresses to this list from their info page rather than having to type in the name of the person within my list search?
Hi, it would be really nice to have a quick button (just as there is such for movies) to add people (such as actors, directors, screenwriters etc) to lists. It will be also nice to have a "watchlist" type of functionality for persons - but instead of receiving notifications for "movie times near you" to receive notifications for new movies releases, related to this particular person.
There doesn't appear to be a way to add a person's profile to a users list from their profile page.
While you have a great big button to add a movie or television show to a list of our choosing, you have no such easy feature to add an actor or actress to a list of our choosing. The current system to add an actor or actress to a custom list is clunky at best. It should be available on their page, just like the movies and television pages.
but it took me 10min of research to finally find a website where somebody explains how to actually ADD people to said list (it was this: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/unable_to_add_actors_to_personal_lists)
i'm in IT myself, so i know this is really no biggie.
pretty disappointing that this feature STILL hasn't been added...
It’s sad that the folks who promote this website and want to draw patrons in don’t provide a quality product to them if they want to create lists to share with others. I’ve got several lists on this site that I haven’t been able to edit, simply because the webmasters took away the ‘name’ sort on lists. The only filter available in the drop down is ‘Date Added’. The ‘View’ option only gives you ‘Grid’ and ‘Detail’ views. And the ‘ascending’ and ‘descending’ arrows only sort the number assigned to the ‘Name’. If a person wants to add an actor say, and don’t know if that person already exists on the list, the only way to determine that is to scan the entire list, which in some cases could be over a 100 names. Sort by ‘Date Added’ provides no association to the alpha sequence to the file. Restore the sort by ‘Name’ option!!!
I don’t know if anyone has suggested this edit option in the past, but someone did give me this procedure until such time IMDb provides a better method to adding/deleting from your lists. It may seem a little tedious at first, but you’ll catch on. It has worked for me.
1). Sign into your IMDb account.
2). Then go to https://www.imdb.com/search/?ref_=fn_asr and choose the “Advanced Name Search” option.
3) Scroll down to “Lists” and highlight the list you want to edit from the “Include” selection box. Then go to “Display Options” and choose your preferred option. Then from the “Sort by” picks, select how you want to display your entries from your list. I would recommend “A-Z Ascending”. You can review your entire list here.
4). After you have reviewed your list(s), if you wish to make new additions to those list(s), go to your IMDb account name at top of the webpage and from the options, choose “Your Lists” and then choose the list to which you wish to add entries. Once you have selected your list, click the vertical ellipsis button, and choose “Edit”. Scroll to the bottom to the “Add a Name to this List” block. After you have finished adding your new entries, go to the top of your list and click “Done”.
I hope this helps to manage your lists more effectively in the interim.
