New Feature: Sign In
Over the next week, we’re adding “Sign In” to our sites. In those days you should see those two little words in the top right corner beside “Safety Tips” and “Help”
We’ve been testing it non stop over the past few months to make sure it doesn’t crash and burn, and so far we haven’t heard any loud noises or smelled burnt toast. We think the coast is clear.
With the Sign In we are rolling out 2 new features: The User Dashboard and Alerts
The biggest thing it does is organize your ads. In one page you’ll be able to see all the ads that you’ve posted, how often they’ve been seen, and quick links to upgrade, edit, or mark as sold. No need to save all the emails or bookmark all your active ads. Just sign in; there they are.
You are on the hunt for new patio furniture. So you look under Outdoor Furniture. But your too late. Everything has either been sold, or has someone one the way to pick it up. What can you do? On the right hand side under “My Tools” click “Email / SMS Alerts”
Fill out an email address or phone number, and see the latest ads posted. Then you’ll be notified the moment new ads are added. You’ll be sure to get the upper hand now.
For those in the UK & Austrailia – We haven’t set-up text messages for you yet – however the email notifications will still be available, so with a smart phone, you should still be able to get notified anywhere you are.
Do you have to sign in to post ads?
Nope. We know that some like the way it works right now, so why ruin a good thing?
Where is all of this going?
We don’t know for sure. We’ve got approximately 1 million and 3 ideas around the Sign In. We only have 5 people on our development team. So it’ll be one step at a time.
If you’ve got suggestions and recommendations on where we should start, post your idea on our getsatisfaction page.
When should you see it?
- Thank you PEI for helping us test this new feature. You’re up and running and your feedback has been very helpful.
- Atlantic/Prairies – you are good to go right now!
- Quebec/Ontario – you’re scheduled for Wednesday
- Everywhere else ( including Australia & the UK )– Monday morning. So get ready – keep you’re eyes peels and start signing in.
Once you see the “Sign In” you’ll also be able to read more details in your help section.
