You will also be given the option to track all of the titles in your filmography, or pick and choose which of your titles you'd like to see news about.

How can I view the titles I'm credited with and also tracking?

Navigate to the "Tracking" page, then select "Titles" and finally "Your credits". You will also see a link to "View pages you track" in your Notifications Inbox on the desktop site. Any titles from your own filmography that you're currently tracking will appear here. You can also use or bookmark this link on the desktop site to reach the Tracking page: https://pro.imdb.com/tracking

Select “Stop tracking” and the menu will automatically update to “Track”. When you untrack a person or title, articles you previously received will read "Because you tracked...", but won't be removed from the Inbox.

How can I tell which articles I have read or why I received a particular notification in my Notifications Inbox?

New notifications will appear in bold and after reading a particular article, the text will convert to standard font. Each notification in your Inbox will also include a note that you received the notification “Because you track…” and the name of the person or title you’re tracking.

Why do I not see some news for people/titles I track?

Not all news articles that mention the title or name you're tracking will appear in the Inbox. Only articles which we believe are relevant to the items you're tracking and only from Variety, Deadline, The Hollywood Reporter, and Box Office Mojo will show up there.
