Check-in to whole doesn't check-in each episode.

Hello,

when i check-in to a series on the front page of that series, it doesn't check-in to any of the episodes. These are still marked unseen.
I think by selecting check-in on a running series, it should at least mark all aired episodes as checked-in or give us an option to decide which variant we prefer.

Thanks and kind regards,
Erika

PS. the same extends to the watchlist feature: if you mark the series as a whole for the watchlist, the episodes themselves are untouched.
Here i would like to have the option to mark all future and still unseen episodes/seasons for the watchlist, and exclude all episodes/seasons, which were already marked as checked-in before.

Hi Erika,

I think this the way it is meant to be: in the IMDb, data model, series head and series episodes are two different kind of objects, and they should be considered and processed separately. E.g. You may give an overall rating to the series, regardless of the rating your gave to each episode. In another use case, I recently watched the 4 seasons of one series, except for one episode of the 1st series, and I would like to retain the information I did not see it.

So to react to your proposal, which sounds more like an idea than a problem to me, I think that whenever you are editing something at the series head level, you should be proposed to apply it to the whole episodes or for specific seasons.

(Sorry, I am not familiar with "check in" and what it means in that context)

Vincent Fournols, I've noticed some ("soething") and it's partially a fault of me liking the post that you can't correct them now. :( I can correct them for you, if you want.

Vincent, check-in means (at least in my understanding), that you have watched something. So, i would find it useful that i get at least the option by clicking check-in on a series to also check-in to all episodes. (the rating is separate from this (i think))
I'm using that check-in feature as a database for everything i have watched. I'd like to evade the task of manually check-in to dozens to hundreds of episodes for every tv series.

In general, I'd agree that episode title pages should inherit some of the properties applied to the series title page of which they are constituent.

Hi Erika,

Thanks for your feedback regarding the IMDb Watchlist and Check-Ins features.

I've changed this post to an "Idea" type, where it can be reviewed by other IMDb staff and users for consideration for future updates.

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.

Can someone explain to me what does the "check-in feature" consist in, in the IMDb context?
I thought I was fairly knowledgeable in English and, to a lesser extent, in IMDb matters, but this word appeared twice yesterday for the first time, and I cannot figure out precisely what it refers to here. (And I know a couple of other meanings, according to different contexts)
Thanks in advance.

I would desire to explain it, but I cannot, since I'm a layman too.

I explained it a bit above.
You can find the check-in on every movie etc page, as a mouse over on the "+" sign.
The "+" sets a movie etc on the watchlist, which means you still want to watch that movie. The check-in means, that you have already watched that movie.
On "your name" > "your lists" you can find lists of all check-ins and the watchlist.
I use the check-in feature as a database, what i've already watched. I think, that's what it's for :P
I hope that in the future all check-ins/watchlist entries will show up on every list on the site, so that i can see what i have watched already of any actor etc.
