Auto Lists

Custom Auto Lists on Simkl

Simkl provides a feature called Auto Lists that automates the process of creating custom lists.

With traditional list-making, you need to manually search for a show or movie, and then add it one by one to your custom list. This can be a tedious process, especially when dealing with large quantities of media.

What are Auto Lists?

Auto Lists, on the other hand, are designed to simplify and automate this process. Rather than adding each item manually, you can create an Auto List using filters that can automatically curate and manage a list for you. This is ideal for members who want to create themed lists, genre-specific lists, or even lists based on certain ratings, actors, or directors (available in V2 later, when Actor's data is added to Simkl).

Here's how it works:

  1. You define the criteria for your Auto List using filters. These filters could be based on a variety of parameters such as genre, release year, ratings, actors, directors, and more.

  2. Once you set your filters, Simkl will scan all available shows and movies and add the ones that meet your criteria to your Auto List.

  3. The Auto List is dynamic. This means it will automatically update whenever a new show or movie that fits your criteria is added to Simkl's database. So you don't have to worry about constantly updating your list with new additions.

In short, Auto Lists on Simkl can help you create and manage personalized lists with much greater ease and efficiency.

Few examples of how you can use Auto Lists:

  • Filter by MCU tag to get a list of all Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies.

  • Filter by Korean Language and Netflix Network to get a list of all Korean original shows on Netflix.

  • Filter by the number of IMDB votes and minimum Movie budget that are released on DVD.

Regular lists are sometimes limited by the number of items you can add to the custom list. With the Auto list, there are no limits to items or the number of filters you can save in the Auto list.
