I'd like to see a new filter added that shows only complete albums (with MB metadata), alternately an incomplete album filter would be nice in some situations as well..

Thanks!

So basically the List Missing Songs fro Albums report , but integrated into the view itself.

Which is more useful the exportable report or the filter because Im wary of essentially adding the same functionality again albeit in a slightly different form.

The way picard handles this is pretty handy. It shows the album as "gold" if it has all the tracks and denotes how many it is missing otherwise. I don't see a clean way to integrate this in the Jaikoz interface though.

I use picard for this very purpose--to locate the albums missing tracks.

Why don't use the report within Jaikoz, surely thats easier then using two different programs

While the report is useful, it's not functional..

Here's my reasoning.. I, like many others using Jaikoz, are interested in sorting complete albums from the incomplete albums and being able to quickly identify which are incomplete or complete.

I'd like to load about 500 - 1000 folders of albums into Jaikoz, and let it crunch through the MB data. Then I'd like to filter all albums that are complete so that I can quickly select all, save and move them to my complete album folder.

As it is now I have no way to quickly grab all the albums that are complete and move them without looking through the entire list of loaded songs and visually count the tracks and compare with the total tracks #, then select that album and save/move it. This takes a looong time..

I love Jaikoz, it is proving to be extremely capable and useful. However, it seems it wants to be oriented towards fixing/sorting MP3 'albums', but album support doesnt seem to be quite there just yet.

It would be nice to be able to collapse each album in the display, and see a track count in the collapsed line..

example:

+ The Crystal Method - Vegas Tracks: 07 of 10

Then you could click the plus sign and see the list of tracks for that album. And perform all the normal Jaikoz functions on those tracks.. Make sense?

This type of view would work lieu of a filter as you could quickly see which albums were complete, especially if it got an icon or a color to it.
