Editor Czar, Matt Dubroff, here with an update for our editors on five brand new Edit Suite features.
As you know, we work hard to create a platform that best suits our editors. And these feature updates are no exception. If you have ideas for improving the Edit Suite, write to us! You just might see you suggestion on the next list of updates.
Here are a few of the biggest changes:
1. Time Zone Support
Up until this point, all times displayed on our site were in UTC or Coordinated Universal Time. We now offer time zone support throughout the site. If you go to your profile by clicking on the button with your name in the top right, you’ll see an option to select your time zone. Pick the appropriate one, and you’re good to go!
2. Portfolio Organization
We have just introduced the ability to sort your portfolio items in whatever order you would like. Going to the portfolio tab of your website, you will see “Up” and “Down” options for each video. Videos will appear on your profile page and in the app in the same order they are displayed on the site.
3. Video Thumbnail Selection
There is now a button with each video in your portfolio that says “Choose Thumbnail.” Clicking on this button will prompt you to upload a new thumbnail image for your video. This will carry to your profile page and in the app, as well.
4. Pause All Bids
Going on vacation? We now have the ability to pause and resume all of your bids at once. Under the “My Auto-Bids” and “My Manual Bids” tabs, you will see a button that says “Pause All Bids.” Clicking this on either page will pause all of your manual and auto-bids. You can resume all bids from either page.
5. Removing Previously Bid on Projects
If you place a manual bid on a project, it will automatically be removed from the “Find Jobs” tab and added to your “My Manual Bids” tab. If you want to change your bid, you can go to the “My Manual Bid” tab, but this will alleviate the issue of an editor placing multiple bids on the same project.
Those are our biggest updates at the moment, but we’re constantly working to make every aspect of our platform as strong as it can be. If you have any suggestions for how we can improve moving forward, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep cutting editors!
