"Select All" Option When Adding To A Collection

Hello. I recently installed the plugin "Auto Box Sets"  to my Emby, but, after adding some movies  I saw a notification that the plugin was no longer supported so I removed it.

I didn't notice till hours later that the custom collections that I had made for specific actors were all missing. It seems that removing the plugin also removed all custom "Collections" that I had created.

I had 6 that I needed to re-create and adding all the movies I have from these actors was a painful chore.

What would have helped is if there had been a "Select All" option to add all the movies or TV shows from an actor into a collection.

For instance, I am a huge Vincent Price fan and have 72 of his movies. I had to manually select all  movies one at a time then manually add them to a new collection. Normally I use Firefox but since an update broke the mouse over options I had to use Chrome so that I could click each movie one at a time then add them.

In the screen shot you can see that a search has found  Vincent Price movies, each one needing to be manually selected. I also have TV shows that needed to be added.

Just a thought.

Thanks guys!

I tried it out but there doesn't seem to be a search function so I don't know how I could use it to search for an actor and all of his movies that I may have and select them all to add to a collection.

Actually I can see in web client view and click on a person within a movie to see all their media just need a way to select all media for a person to add to colleciton.

Hello JsinFate...

I will add an option where you can build a collection from all of the movies on your server for a given actor/actress. I am very busy at the moment so this will take a few days to complete. Will this solve your problem?

Please don't worry about it. There is absolutely no rush.

I made a post for a select all feature when trying to build a collection in the request section and followed a suggestion from Happy2Play here.

I just noticed there was not a search function to look up movies or actors. This is NOT high priority at all. Just if you ever remember and have the time.

Thank you!

There is as it is in a library then filter.

As I don't see select all/bulk editing anytime soon.
