Import List from file?

i have reviewed the FAQs on lists, but none seem to address the potential of importing a title list - in as a .csv, .txt or whatever - and I would like to do this; could i?

my goal is to make an IMDb list of stuff in my personal collection, but there are thousands of titles and anyway it would be hard to keep up with the new ones all the time.  a way to create such a list automatically from a one-field file of "tt*" entries (which i can easily query from my database) would be a marvelous way to do that!

Hi Albert,

There is no method to import files, although you can export your lists in CSV format. I am updating this post to an "Idea" so other users can provide their input and our team can consider this in future updates.

Thanks!

There have been some Users as Members here that had a List deleted for some reason 🤢

IMDb can restore some of them and some they can not

IF the User exported the List in CSV format the User should be able to restore it 😃

Can't believe this feature isn't here! I want to switch to IMDb Watchlist from trakt, but no way I can do it without an import feature.

Thia actually sort of can be accomplished via AJAX requests, meaning that the creation of a browser extension or a monkey script for the stated purpose is a viable avenue. Hopefully a third party web developer will look into it.

Someone else to talk to about this ? ?

Why can't IMDb just do it - Imports Lists ??
