We are getting ALOT more people to farmers forum recently, hopefully soon we will start seeing the use of our help finder too, just in time for harvest! Anyhow, on to the updates.
More Speed Optimizations!
Continuing to improve the site, making it more responsive and easier to navigate, and boosting Loading times.
Help Finder -
Added a "Finish Job" button to the Active Jobs menu screen.
Once Pressed it will change the Active Job's status to "Completed" and no longer be visible in the Active Jobs table.
It will stay around for a length of time before being deleted from our systems, just in case users require information stored or discussed within.
It will also be added to jobs completed/provided personal statistics.
Button will be available to the employer after the Accepted date and end time of work.
Changed the way Statistics Work & added "Jobs Finished" and "Work Given"/
The new implementation should boost overall speed for the Help Finder.
Fixed a problem where settings were not being applied properly in some cases.
Fixed a problem where forum posts were failing to load properly.
Site Users can now sign up for monthly subscription to get increased access to the Help Finder!
We understand that not everyone has the money to throw at a subscription, so Limitations have been set up so that Free Users and casual workers can still use the Help Finder to a reasonable extent.
2 Posts, 2 searches and 6 offers WEEKLY, as well as up to 5 Results per search.
Aimed at those wanting to try our Help Finder, and casual workers.
8 Posts, 10 Searches, 20 Offers WEEKLY, as well as up to 10 Results per search, and other benefits. Full List
Aimed at those with large amounts of Help needed (Harvest, Fruit plantations, etc.) and Groups of Workers (Sheep Shearers, Contractors, etc.).
There are more benefits planned for the future.
The Current price is $15 Aud/month, which will increase when Farmers Forum has reached what we believe to be a 'complete' state, meaning when we finish adding all the features we believe it should have!
Any and all contributions to Farmers Forum in these initial stages will be greatly appreciated!
With these updates, we have decided we'd also share with you what is currently being worked on, so here is what to expect from us in the future -
Help Finder -
A History Menu for past Posts, Offers and Active Work's.
Will contain all information in these past Posts, Offers and Active Work's for the past 30 days.
Will also contain a button for emptying search History so that users can re-search previous Posts.
Will enable categories and preferred/required search distances for both Posts and Searches.
Email Notifications for when users receive an offer and after an offer has been accepted.
A display of user Help Finder statistics.
That's all for today.
