Well it should go without saying that if you’re tracking a show, a simple “in-progress” would mean you just watched an episode. The same would apply if you recently played a game, read a book, listened to an album, etc. There would be no need to make it more complex than that.
If you wanted to recommend a series that you’re watching, but have not completed, this would be logged in the activity section - a great way to track what you’re “working” on so to speak.
The way the activity section works right now, to my understanding, is that you would not be able to recommend any media unless you’ve completed the entire book, show, music album, etc. And if you’re anything like me, then you definitely track a lot of media across different platforms, which means it may take a while to complete things.
I may be in the minority of those who like to track everything I’m working on. And perhaps this feature would fundamentally change your app, so a toggle in the settings to enable it could do the trick.
The idea of allowing the activity section to show how long it took you to complete something could be interesting. Just some thoughts
