Additional columns for system web interface

(I posted this in another thread, but thought I'd make it it's own. Hopefully others will agree and it will get some likes and/or noise to K.)

It would be great if, following, "Title, Genre, Rating, Director, Year and Type," there were 2 additional columns:

- "Collection" (that shows the collection/collections a title is assigned to)


- "Status" that indicates Cataloged, Downloaded, or Available (for download)

I know that this isn't what you are asking for, but on a Strato system, you can infer "Cataloged" and "Downloaded" from the "Type" column since anything on the list with a "Type" of "Blu-ray Disc" or "DVD" is catalogued and anything "4K HDR", "4K Ultra HD", "Blu-ray Quality" or "DVD Quality" is a download.

The "Available" category would require extensive reworking of kOS since the browser interface currently only shows content that is already downloaded/cataloged on your system. It does not show owned but undownloaded content.

On the "Collection" front, there is a dropdown box at the top of the movie list page that allows you to filter the list of movies to only those that are in the selected collection. Again, I know it's not what you're asking for but I'm pointing it out just in case.

Thanks John. Once, sorted by Type, I could see what you mean. That totally works for cataloged vs downloaded.

And now that I get the web interface is only providing available content, no need for owned but undownloaded.

I was aware of the collection sort, just thought an exportable all movies list that inclulded a collection indicator would be cool.

Really appreciate the great interface and overall ease of use I've experienced so far.
