Collectors Dig Deeper: New Collection Management Tools
It’s here and we couldn’t possibly be more thrilled to share it with the whole community. Starting today, the functionality and features of your Collection are reaching new heights. Our developers have been working tirelessly so that the whole Discogs community can organize records seamlessly and make the best out of your Collection’s data.
What’s new? Improved functionality, new filtering options, and a more visual approach to the Collection. It’s as good as it sounds, and we want to show you how to make the best out of the Collection.
These new features will be first available for Collections under 1,400 items.
Filtering by formats, genre, style, release year, and folders
Starting today, you’ll be able to filter your Collection by format, genre, style, release year, and folders (meaning that you can personalize how you want to filter your Collection). Sweet, huh? Think about trying to do this with your real Collection, no one wants to die buried by all the David Bowie records collected through a lifetime (at least not literally).
And now you might be thinking: Can this get any better? It sure can! Now it’s possible to use those new filters in order to get separate statistics. So if you want to know how much your Hip Hop Collection is worth or how many Synth-Pop LPs of the eighties you have in your Collection, now you have the tools to find out easily.
Enhanced Collection search tool
Searching for a specific record in your Collection is easier than ever! Simply head to the enhanced Collection search tool. That’s it! Now navigating your Collection has become easier than the chorus lines of Falco’s” Rock Me Amadeus“. We know you’re probably already crying tears of joy, but what if we tell you that it gets even better? With this new Collection search tool, you’ll also be able to look for genres, formats, limited editions… the possibilities are endless!
Stop rubbing your eyes!
With the new “Cover view”, now you will be able to see your Collection as the big masterpiece it is. That’s right, you can use the new “Cover view” to see the cover art of your music items with great resolution. And of course, whenever you pass the mouse over the record, you’ll be able to see the artist and title.
All your Collection options, now in front of your eyes!
We know whenever you’re exploring or organizing your Collection, it’s not ideal to go to a separate window to do any adjustments. That’s why we have now included a “Settings” button in the top right corner. Less distracting and more effective. Simple as that.
What’s that button?
You’ve seen it already, right? There’s a dice next to the “Settings” sprocket icon. Why don’t you roll it now? Looking for a random item within your Collection is that easy!
Don’t throw away your old shoes until you buy new ones. Or even better, just don’t throw away anything at all!
The best thing about this update is that none of the previous functionality has been removed. We know it’s hard to say goodbye to old friends, and that’s why we have created new functionality and features to organize records without removing any of the old ones.
We want to hear from you
Have you seen the new “Statistics” tab within your Collection? You can use it to let us know what statistics would you like to see about your Collection!
And now you will be probably thinking that we would just finish this article without including one single goofy GIF? Well, we can fix that, we welcome you to a whole new world of possibilities within your Collection:
