Right now, I need a little help here.

I recently found out that the Watchlist isn't for titles I've seen; that's what the Check-ins list is for.
Now, I have roughly 1660 titles in my Watchlist. I want to move them to my Check-ins list, but when I select them I don't see it as an option to copy/move my titles to.
Is there a simple way to do that, or do I have to add each title to my Check-ins list manually?

Although IMDb designed the Watch list for titles you wish to watch, there is no reason that you cannot use it the way you want to use it.

Unfortunately, you will have to move titles from your Watch list to you Check-ins list manually, if you still wish to do so.

However, you can move or copy titles from your Watch list to any of you other title lists.

1. Go to you Watch list.

2. Select the Compact View by clicking the box at the far right with multiple lines.

3. Click Edit list.

4a. Select the titles you wish to move or copy.
4b. From the drop down menu to the left select Copy or Move. (I chose Copy.)
4c. From the drop down menu to the right select the target list. (I chose a a list named A_List.)
4d. Click the Go button.


5. You should see a confirmation in green that the copy or move worked.


Note: You can copy or move titles from any list to any other list except your ratings and Check in list.

The reason I want to stop using my Watchlist for that purpose is because I notice that some of the titles that I rated and added to my Watchlist, just disappear. It would seem like the list have a limit. I know for certain that I rated and added the titles to the list, but after a while they're no longer there.

So, manually it is then - thank you.
