The New My Jobs Page is Here. Test it Out!e_carries | Jun 27, 2012
If you’re like 90% of our users, you use the “My Jobs” page as your Elance homepage. Based on your feedback, we have simplified this page while making it more powerful and customizable – so you can work more efficiently and in a way that makes the most sense for you.
Here is what you’ll find on the new My Jobs page:
Act on a job directly from My Jobs
We’ve taken some clicks out of the equation. With this new interface, you can send messages, view key job information and perform other important actions such as editing terms & milestones directly from the My Jobs page.
Navigating made easier
Sometimes small changes can make a big difference. In the new look, we have extended the toolbar and anchored it to the top of the page. This means no more scrolling to find features such as filtering your jobs list, searching through your jobs or accessing some of the new actions that we’re adding to the toolbar (read below).
Customize your look
If this is your homepage, we want you to be comfortable here. You’ve always had the ability to change the default My Jobs to show only certain jobs. Now you have the ability to customize it even further. Click the new page settings icon () in the toolbar to make changes to your look. We’ll be adding more options down the road so you can make the My Jobs page perfect for your needs.
Take action on multiple jobs
You’re busy and sometimes you need to act and organize things quickly. We’ve added a bulk action option to archive multiple jobs at once. Take advantage of this to clean up your My Jobs. More options will be coming soon.
Enjoy a friendlier site
We know that relationships on Elance are key to job success, so we have brought some personality to this page. In the new My Jobs view, you see a thumbnail picture of the client or contractor or job status (in case you’re not working yet) linked to your jobs. Though, if you’d prefer to see more jobs on the page, you’ll have the ability in the near future to switch to a compact view without photos.
Try out the new My Jobs and tell us what you think! We’ve included a link to a short 5 question survey from the new My Jobs so you can share your feedback. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be adding more functionality, so stay tuned. The My Jobs page will be more than My Jobs – it will be your Elance home. Stay on the lookout for more!
