Override parental ratings

Hi,

 

I would like some way to override parental ratings, allowing users with parental control settings in effect to still view specific media items.

 

Use case:

 

I have some media items such as music concerts which are rated NR as they have not received an MPAA rating.  However, I want to allow my kids to watch concerts.  Right now, my only option seems to be going to Server Dashboard > Users > kids > Parental Control and selecting a "Maximum Allowed Parental Rating" of "AO/RP/UR/NR/X", which would give my kids access to lots of content that I specifically do not wish to allow.

 

Possible implementation:

 

Add an "Allow items with tags:" setting on the Parental Control screen, which would override parental ratings settings.

 

Thanks!

Hi, you can change the parental rating on these items and/or use the custom rating field.

Yeah, this is exactly what the Custom Rating field is for.

 

You can provide what you consider the proper rating without having to modify the actual metadata rating (which could get overwritten).
