I have done some searching but haven't found a request for this specific yet.  When you have a household with multiple accounts content added shows up for everyone depending on your setup which is great.  But if you say sit down to watch content as a Family/household/group (whatever you want to call it) then it would be nice for that content to automatically get marked as played for each user account.

For example you could log into a Family or Household account to watch a movie, then that movie gets marked as played for each user under that.

Thanks

Agree. I always have to go back into all the accounts later and check them played one by one.

For that to happen, Family or Household or any other group would have to be implemented first, as there are no accounts under any other account.

Basically, the same thing - different implementation:

These two links are more about controlling users and settings etc, not about viewing like I'm looking for.

Yeah this seems like a similar request.  I don't know what ATV/FTV ETV etc but this is over 5 years old though.

As said, some sort of a "group" is a prerequisite for your request, so that watched status could be propagated. Or "Also here" (man, haven't heard that in a long time) as @ebr suggested. Either way, Emby must be aware of additional users to which it would apply.
