Our crew has been busy working on the back end to bring FyndIt members helpful updates that will improve their user experience! We updated FyndIt with a new release yesterday and would like to invite you to check out the new features. If you are a collector looking for a hard-to-find item, go ahead and post a Want. Our community of Finders will help track it down for you. Perhaps you are someone who knows where to buy all the unusual or kitschy stuff? You’ll want to post a Find to our site and if someone has to have it, they’ll “Want It” and you’ll earn a bounty reward for finding cool stuff!
With this week’s release, we were able to streamline the process of adding a Want or Find to our website. It is now easier for a FyndIt member to enter their item’s information. We’ve moved the additional details section to an “optional” area. Members can now post a Want or Find with just the basic information to quickly get their item up on the site. If additional details are needed, a member can always go back in and edit their post to add more information about the item’s condition or manufacturer. Give the new update a whirl and find out how easy it is now to post a Want or Find.
In addition to streamlining Wants and Finds, we’ve added a new feature to our Want posts that allows the Wanter more control over where an item is found. Some of our Wanters are internet sleuths and have searched the inter-webs high and low for that thing they can’t possibly live without. When they can’t find it online, they turn to our community of Finders for help. The idea is that our Finders live all over the world and have access to brick and mortar shops that carry all kinds of items that are not available in the Wanter’s hometown. We’ve added a new feature that allows a Wanter to specify if an item can be found online or only in a store. In the case of our Wanters who are internet sleuths, they are already searching online for their item, but specifically need help searching for it in a store at some far away location. The newly added feature helps potential Finders narrow the item down and prevents both the Wanter and the Finder from doing double work searching for the item online.
In addition to the two newly added features, we’ve continued working on squashing pesky little bugs to improve the user experience. You can keep up to date on all of the awesome stuff we are doing to improve the site by reading our latest Release Notes.
