I have, like many users on IMDb, a list of "Watched" films. Every once in a while of course I do a re-watch of some movies, but once I add them on the list, if already present, it is deleted the first view, and only the second one is kept.
It is lost the sense of "history" of your list.

Would be nice to add this feature (double-add) or to create a "Smart list", like watchlist, just for the Watched film.

Thank you very much for the attention,
have a nice one.

You can add a title to a list twice on (I don't know about the mobile app.) It's not automatic, but possible. Here's how:

When you see that you've already placed the movie in your list, but want a second copy:

Add it to another list (like, say "junk" which I created for just such a purpose).
Then Edit list "junk", moving the title to the desired list.


Extract its title ID from the URL:
has title idĀ tt0028757
Edit the target list, paste the title id into the Add Title box. Select the only title that appears.
(Actually, you can just enter the name of the feature film in the Add Title box. But right now Short films and TV episodes don't show up by name. The title id always gets the job done.)

But it would be much nicer to have an "add again" feature, than going through either option above.
