Fine-grain filters in the COMPLIANCE IS section
As of 20170901 bliss shows 5 categories of compliance state. I'd like to see a finer grain breakdown of 'Non-compliant' and 'Incorrect Tags'. I see this as a valuable tool in managing a library.
I currently have nearly 300 albums in the 'Incorrect Tags' category but I can't see its components (i.e. Album name / Album artist / Track name / Track Number / Discnumber) unless I open the Why? drop down on each album individually. This is tedious and slow.
My ideal is to be able select a sub-set of Non-compliant or Incorrect Tags - for instance Album name - and work on that group without the distraction of the other non-com tags. This enables me to focus on a 'type' of problem - I don't want to have to keep shifting (mentally)
between categories. It would also give me a count so that I could gauge my progress.
If you want to retain the uncluttered look of the UI, do the same as the album page 'why?' button - make it (them) drop down(s). The aesthetics are preserved while users get the useful tools.
For those readers who wonder why I only voted 1 vote it's because I've already used my other votes!
Merging these makes sense.
This one is also closely related to my compliant releases suggestion :
So... I think we should merge these ideas, agree?
And also it is important to try to fix the incorrect assignment of linked releases where possible (but those are separate issues).
Yes, it's about filters. My neural pathways are not those of a programmer! ;-)
To take your example I'd want to be able to isolate, on the grid, just the instances of Incorrect album artist (together with a count) and the same for other categories (album name, track name etc.), like I can now for file path and missing art.
A good example is album name. Most Incorrect album names are because the wrong source release is being linked to the user's album. This in turn throws up associated track name errors.
More often than not if you fix the album name the track name errors go away. It's divide and conquer.
I just mean that in the albums grid the existing cover art, existing album title and existing deduced album artist are more there for identification to group a bunch of tracks, call it an "album" and use that "album" as the basis for checking for compliance.
(Attached is an example of bliss showing "Incorrect album artist" which is what I initially thought you were asking for; re-reading it looks like this is more about filters?)
So, how is this different to http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/31154179-fine-grain-filters-in-the-compliance-is-section ?
Yes, I'm talking about the albums 'grid'.
* (am) I referring to something relating to compliance? *
Why does this feel like a trick question? Everything relates to compliance - if anything is incorrect it's non-compliant.
To expand :
The non-compliant and Incorrect tags sections of the Compliance Is display, when clicked on, show a grid in which all the elements in error are identified in red.
What we need is the ability to display just Incorrect track names or Incorrect album artist in the same way that we can currently see just Incorrect file paths or Missing art by clicking on those items in Compliance is.
The second part of my post (compliant releases) I feel is self-explanatory.
Can you expand a bit - assuming you're talking about the albums "grid" the album name and artist name is already shown - are you referring to something relating to compliance? If there's something wrong with the album name it should also show that.
The change to the way the album page displays non-compliant info. is a great improvement and a real time saver. Good job.
Now what we need is a way to show just one element (album name, album artist, track name, etc.) in the same way we can now see file path and missing art.
Then it would also be good to be able to distinguish the three types of compliant releases without having to open them, i.e.
1) explicitly linked
3) not linked (compliant by default)
At present they all look the same.
Thanks, sounds sensible. One other thing - the compliance states that appear in the filter are derived from the currently active rules, so the number you will see depends on your settings. Either way, they don't show anything as detailed as per-tag compliance though.
