Not as quiet option?

Hey, is it possible to do an import but only have beets prompt when an album isn’t a duplicate?

I’ve done an import using -q which went very well importing just over half my music into an organised collection however as most of it was ripped directly from CDs allot were skipped so I need to do anther import but ideally I’d like it to automatically skip items already imported and only prompt for new/unknown albums, is this possible?

Basically “beet import but skip already imported”

Thanks in advance


Hi! We don’t have anything exactly like that, but there is a duplicate_action config option that can let you automatically skip duplicates:

that is exactly what I need, didn’t see that in the manual! Thankyou so much!
