Friends, as we go down the path of building out the new Tracker on SideReel, we wanted to know which features and functions in the tracker are the most important to you. This will help us identify what to focus on for the relaunch and what we can build in as we go.


What do you consider to be the most valuable elements?

  • A weekly calendar of your tracked shows with airtimes and network information?
  • Changing your time zone?
  • Sortable lists of your tracked shows?
  • Filtering lists of your tracked shows?
  • Your rating?
  • User ratings?
  • Your next unwatched episode?
  • Viewing all episodes of a show in the tracker?
  • Viewing unwatched episodes of a show in the tracker?
  • Hiding shows you are up-to-date on?
  • The status of the show (On Hiatus, Concluded, etc) in the Tracker?
  • Viewing/Sorting/Filtering your Lists within the Tracker?
Please let us know what is most important to you when you are in your Tracker!

I've used most - top 4:

  • Your next unwatched episode?
  • Viewing all episodes of a show in the tracker?
  • Viewing unwatched episodes of a show in the tracker?
  • Hiding shows you are up-to-date on?
Status is useful.

Calendar at the top is nice but not top priority for me.

Ratings are nice but lower priority for me.

Most valuable for me for an initial launch (in order of importance):
  • Your next unwatched episode
  • Hiding shows you are up-to-date on
  • Viewing unwatched episodes of a show in the tracker
  • Viewing all episodes of a show in the tracker
  • A weekly calendar of your tracked shows with airtimes and network information
The rest can all be added later as far as I'm concerned. My next priority would be making the lists workable:
  • Sortable lists of your tracked shows
  • Filtering lists of your tracked shows
  • The status of the show (On Hiatus, Concluded, etc) in the Tracker
  • Viewing/Sorting/Filtering your Lists within the Tracker
Changing time zone and ratings/reviews are not that important to me.

  • Weekly Calendar
  • Hiding up-to-date
  • Your next unwatched episode (all unwatched would be nice, but next is the most important)
  • Next unwatched episode in "Lists" (as I use that for shows I don't keep in my tracker)

It would be great if filtering on status could come back eventually along with viewing all (and all unwatched) eps of a show.  The rest doesn't really matter to me.

I very much would like to get it all back - and more! -, but in order of importance, I guess:
  • A weekly calendar of your tracked shows with airtimes and network information
  • Hiding shows you are up-to-date on
  • Your next unwatched episode
  • The status of the show (On Hiatus, Concluded, etc) in the Tracker
  • Your rating (if it doesn't display there, people might rate shows a lot less... I'm not sure I'd think of going out of my way, to the show's page, to rate it)

  • A weekly calendar of your tracked shows with airtimes and network
  • Hiding up to date shows
  • Next unwatched episode
  • Show status

I don't use many other features besides these.

These are the must haves for me:

  • Your next unwatched episode
  • Viewing unwatched episodes of a show in the tracker
  • Viewing all episodes of a show in the tracker
  • Hiding shows you are up-to-date on
  • The status of the show (On Hiatus, Concluded, etc) in the Tracker

These are very nice to have, but I wouldn't mind waiting for them as a phase two:

  • Changing your time zone
  • A weekly calendar of your tracked shows with airtimes and network information

These are rarely used (at least within the tracker) but I do use ratings in other areas of the site, mainly when browsing new shows to track. 

  • Sortable lists of your tracked shows
  • Filtering lists of your tracked shows
  • Your rating
  • User ratings
  • Viewing/Sorting/Filtering your Lists within the Tracker

The rest I could wait for until later roll outs.

Biggest "Ask" of new options: The ability to filter and/or sort by service (Hulu, Netflix, Disney+, Network TV, etc)

Most Important
  • Your next unwatched episode
  • Hiding shows you are up-to-date on
  • Sortable lists of your tracked shows

Want but could live without
  • Viewing all episodes of a show in the tracker

Never use
  •  A weekly calendar of your tracked shows with airtimes and network information
  • Changing your time zone
  • Your rating
  • User ratings
  • Personal lists - Viewing/Sorting/Filtering your Lists within the Tracker
