  1. Date formatting rule (e.g. trim the date field to just the year)

    It would be helpful if you could force the date field to be just the year - as in, 1997/02/28 to simply 1997

    • "Varying names" filter in Artist browsing

      In the Browse by Artist view, there could be a filter "Varying names" that limits the artists shown to those potentially being variations of the same name, like "Beatles", "BEATLES", The Beatles", "Beatles, The" and so on.

      That would greatly help to spot these misfits and correct them from within Bliss.

      The rules for this could start with simply removing "the" and characters like whitespace, comma etc, and then doing a case insensitive comparison.

      • Mass-review / Update of non-compliant items

        Hello,
        First, sorry for the long post.
        Might I suggest a feature that is similar in output format to the Tag view output, but shows a list of changes for a type of tag, say Track Name with the current entry in one column and the suggested change in another and a third column with the commit button, but also a global commit button that will make all suggested changes.

        For example, I have about 5000 entries that have invalid tag entries. These can vary from Genre to Track Name, but there are a lot of entries that need the…

        • Carry on from where it left off

          Having Bliss back to work where it left off when restarting would be very useful especially for NAS devices with scheduled start / stop package.
          (allows you to run Bliss only at night to save memory/cpu when you use the NAS at day)

          • Alert Synology media indexer after moving files

            As my music collection starts to get as compliant as it gets, I took it to the next level by enforcing file paths as well. This works so well, I created an inbox folder where I put the files, and Bliss takes care of the rest.

            Unfortunately, on Synology this means the media indexer loses track of the file. It seems to be relatively easy to send an alert to rescan a certain folder.

            My suggestion is to send an alert for every new folder Bliss has to create; so DS audio and all other media players "see" the newly…

            • A "Fix All Visible" button on each non-compliment album

              Firstly, great program. Lovely interface and easy to use. Would be nice to have a "Fix All" button on the spin-down "Why?" button of non-compliant albums. The only issue with the "Fix All Visible" in the inbox is that if (like me) you are re-doing your entire album then you can't really risk going for it in-case a couple of the "fixes" are mismatches. etc.

              • Identify MP3's with Progressive JPEG Album Art

                Progressive JPEG's are not widely compatible with music players .... specifically Mazda Connect in my case.

                It would be great to be able to identify MP3's with progressive Album Art and ideally flatten the image.

                • Automatic tag completion

                  I expected Bliss to fix missing tags automatically (genres, years, etc.). I have around 3,000 albums in my library, over 1,000 of which don't have a year. I was surprised that a scan didn't automatically fix this. Instead, I need to go to my "Inbox" and tell it to fix these, but only up to 96 at a time - that's over 100 clicks to fix them all (hardly automated). Can't Bliss be set to automatically fix anything you put in your criteria without so much manual intervention?

                  • Colour Coding Tag Non Compliance, And A One Click Fix For Track Names

                    With the introduction of tag checking, it might be good to differ to colour of the non compliant items listed after pressing the 'Why' link (eg albumn name blue, track name green). It may also be good to have one button to fix all track names in one go - saving many clicks.

                    • Show the image file size in the suggested images page

                      The image art selector only shows the image size in pixels not the file size, show the file size as well.

                      • Allow us to mark albums as "done"

                        Another really useful feature would be to be able to mark some CDs, or even directories of CDs, as "done", i.e., I am satisfied with these and bliss should ignore them in future unless I ask to see a full list (or I change the settings).

                        This would have 2 benefits - it could make bliss faster by letting it know it could just ignore certain items, and it would make it faster to see what bliss has done with something newly added which wasn't as expected (e.g. unexpected artist name / title etc).

                        • Make placeholders on album pages the same size as the art

                          I like my art to be displayed in a tidy grid. This is how it would be if I had art for every album. At present the grid is distorted by the placeholders which do not occupy the same size space as the art. The result is variable vertical displacement of the art and loss of alphabetical sequence. The more placeholders there are the worse it is.

                          • Type album and artist name once in Untagged page

                            The ability to add/edit the tags in the Untagged page is useful but typically the album and artist name is repeated for each track in an album. This means a lot of copy and pasting, and is especially annoying on a tablet or mobile phone.

                            It would be good to either provide a way of copying the entry to all files for a given tag, or having something more like the Album edit view where album-level tags are entered just once.

                            • Share user-supplied alternative art with upstream databases

                              If users chose to use URL or own file, maybe it's possible to upload it to the databases, with whom you cooperate? That would help others users later on.

                                I'm not sure, why google analytics is shown under "scripts" in "js blocker" (the more, as the software runs on my own machine). If it's necessary for you as a developer to get some feedback, maybe this should be a transparent Opt-In / Opt-Out option.

                                    • An option to provide a popup or audible signal when a folder has finished processing.

                                      That's it really! At present it seems one just has to watch the processing files running count top left until it disappears.

                                      • Populate Untagged album info from a URL

                                        In the Untagged page, I should be able to provide a URL or drag and drop a URL, bliss parse the content on the URL and populate the album data as a result.

                                        Initial implementations could cope with agreed sources of data. E.g. Discogs and MusicBrainz would be easy to use, because we already have the data there, so just need to look up the data given the URL.

                                        Other popular sources may be:

                                        - Amazon
                                        - All Music Guide
                                        - Last.fm

                                        • Missing tracks in albums should be detected

                                          Title says it all I think.

                                          BLISS should (optionally) check if an album in a collection is complete or if it's missing songs and possibly even display the missing ones, so I know which ones to buy.

                                          Pretty much like this beets plugin http://beets.readthedocs.io/en/v1.3.19/plugins/missing.html
