I agree. This could actually be useful - IF it worked to anyone's benefit.

Agreed. Irksomely stupid.

Could someone tell me where this shows. Because I certainly can't see it on any of my pages.

Nichola, you must click on the notification bell, next to your photo. You'll get a notification saying "you profile has been viewed x number of times". Just click on that sentence.

Hi Nichola,

 

Since the feature is still in testing, it's not available to all freelancers at the moment. In the future we may roll it out to all users.

Hi Valeria,

 

I've been checking the information that appears, and I see that, of the three clients shown, only the first one has changed. The other two remain the same as in the image I attached in another previous post.
If you say that I have had "7 Profile views this week", customers should have varied, right?

Anyway, the way in which the information appears (and is described) seems quite confusing to me.

In theory, this could be quite useful -- seeing the types of clients who check out my profile could potentially inform me in fine-tuning it to attract best-fit opportunities. But it needs to show me all of the clients who viewed my profile last week. And the number of profile views indicated here needs to be consistent with the number indicated in the regular graphic on 'my stats' page. Mine is not, and that's just confusing and time-wasting.

 

Honestly, the prominent green "See My Upgrade Options" button in the Profile Engagement box suggests to me that the whole thing will be used to tease FLs into upgrading their m'ship. If the feature gets revised to show us all clients viewing us each week, and it updates regularly and accurately, then I'll believe it's genuinely meant as a tool to help us market ourselves more effectively and earn more money for everybody. Otherwise...

I second this! I clicked the upgrade options thinking there was a higher-level membership. It'd also be useful to see more than 3 of the last viewers.
