Default Automatically add "G" rated titles to Children's Collection

I'm setting up a system to be kid friendly, but I'm finding it difficult to remember which titles I've added to the children's collection, and which one's I haven't. Is there an easier way to do this?

Faster than shifting back & forth between collections in the web interface? Or just from the K-GUI?

Unfortunately, this should be easy but it's not. But it's faster in the web interface. Go to the "Movies" tab, then sort the data by Rating. (Click on the column header for rating.) Now scroll down to all the "G" and "TV-G" titles, and check the little box to the left of each one. Then at the bottom of your screen you can pick "Child" from the list of collections, then "Add to Collection" button will add each title that you checked.

Unfortunately, there's no way to shift-select a whole range of titles, you have to click the little checkbox on each.

Now, had you done the import for your customer by FIRST importing all the G disks, then you could have done it faster by using the "all" checkbox at the top of your movie list in the web interface... this picks every movie in your collection, which in that case, would ONLY be G movies since those are all you've imported at that stage. But unless it's a HUGE collection, it's not that hard to just click each checkbox.

You can also sort by genre and select children's to add to the collection in the event you want to add the PG rated children's movies.
