Topic: Export?

Is there a way to export my shows to a spreadsheet (Excel etc) ?

Thank you!

Re: Export?

IIRC santah is working on an export option, I don't know specifics.

You can do it right after the next big app update!

Export feature awesome
Export .csv awesome*2
Juts don't make it premium

Re: Export?

What data specifically would you want exporting?

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Re: Export?

I know you didn't ask me, but I would like to mostly export https://next-episode.net/track every now and then - the shows I'm tracking, the episodes not marked watched yet, and the "Shows you're not tracking".

Re: Export?

See, while I understand the need to backup your data, I think this would be the single use of this feature and it's not obvious, but data on Next Episode is backed up very rigorously:

- the hosting provider backs up the database and everything else on a daily basis
- I backup it up as well - manually, to an offline storage - on a weekly basis

So while exporting your stuff to back it up makes sense, you can see why it isn't really a priority feature and I don't think many people will actually take advantage of it ...

If there are other uses of this CSV export please let me know and we'll discuss it and possibly consider it!

Re: Export?

Csv can be used for those who want to migrate from next-epsoide to themoviesdb.com or simkl or other tracking platforms
Basically I prefer to keep my tracking on multiple sites as some of my friends or on other tracking website and it's easy for them to view my tracking info there. 
 
themoviedb currently support this 6 CSV formats for import:
IMDb (v1) (v2), (v3),
Trakt (v1), (v2) ,
Simkl (v1)

As long as next-epsoide format is same as any of this other sites can import it, i also like to limit this once a month thus reducing Server load
This example also shows that how others exporting tracking website data looks like

We too can make import csv from other sites as themoviedb has done

I see... Well, over the years a few sites have vanished into thin air (along with my personal data), so I'll just save the Episodes and Watchlist page as html to have some sort of backup. smile

Oh I see, you want a specific .cvs export, not just to have one. Had you started with that - I wouldn't have assumed you only needed it for backup.

Good point.

Guys, I'm not against having .cvs export and if there is demand - it'll happen.

One of these days I'll probably code it.

I can't promise it won't be a Premium feature though.
