I liked the old view that showed for MyFreelancers much better than the new one. You had all the info I needed to get an overview of all my freelancers and when and how much they have recently worked. Now I need to go to multiple locations to find this information.
I don't understand how any employer that uses the system could think that change was a good one. I can beleive that a developer concerned about performance might like the idea, but I will settle for an extra .5sec for the page to load to see what I used to be able to see in one place.
Please put the old functionality back.
Look in the announcements - they call things like this "solutions" then roll them out - does that sound like they have any intention of changing them? Ffity pages of universal disapproval of the changes to freelancer reports resulted in not a single change to the mess they had implemented, when there were at least a couple of simple compromise solutions available.
I am one of the user researchers here at oDesk.
I understand the concerns here. I wanted to ask you to try a different page and let me know if this addresses your concerns.
Go to the Jobs tab, scroll down below your "Open Jobs" table, you will see a "Contracts" table that has the layout you might be looking for.
Does this help solve your needs?
Looking forward to your feedback!
