New Latest Deals Updates (September 2020)
New Latest Deals updates
The new Latest Deals engine is now live! This means Latest Deals runs faster, copes better with a heavy influx of traffic (I’m looking at you, glitches!) and will (hopefully!) keep the ship sailing smoothly at the Latest Deals community continues to grow
Oh, and search should be chucking out some better, more relevant results too!
A special thank you to everyone that volunteered as a tester
- Clearer messages: If a post is removed from the LD you should now get a much clearer message explaining why and how to improve future posts.
- Second chances: If a post is put into moderation for missing a key bit of information you now have the opportunity to edit and update your post so that it can go live on the site (and you can claim back your points!)
- Transparency: You can now see your own posts, even if they’re in moderation. We hope this helps people understand why a moderation decision was made but equally gives members the information they need to query or appeal a decision in case we get it wrong!
- Room to grow: We can now easily add in new moderation messages and information (before it was a bit of a nightmare )
We’ve updated the Latest Deals app:
- We’ve added Aldi to the Supermarket Price Comparison tool
- You can now customise the Supermarket Price Comparison tool and choose which supermarkets you want to compare
- The updated app supports an improved experience if one of your posts goes into review.
- A bucket full of bug fixes and performance improvements.
The Black Friday app has had some love too:
- Everything we learnt from updating and improving the Latest Deals app has been lovingly poured into the Black Friday app. That means loads of performance improvements and bug fixes to make sure your Black Friday deal hunting is a success!
Both app updates should be available from your phone’s App Store shortly.
Thanks for checking in with this update. Lots more exciting updates to come!
