More Swap Site Updates!
Swap site update time!
In our last update we added the functionality that if no action is happening on a swap proposal it will expire in 10 days. (This was from feedback from swappers who had a lot of swaps in this uncertain state and weren’t hearing back from fellow swappers).
After that change, we learned from the comments that there are also lots of swappers who like to keep swaps open even if they aren’t interested in the items a swapper currently has available, in case they list new items. (Thank you so much for letting us know when changes work or don’t work for you – there are so many different swapping styles we’re learning about!)
Given both sides of the swap preference spectrum, we added a new button for reviewing a swap. You can decline the swap, you can do nothing and the swap will expire in 10 days, or now you can click “Keep Swap Open.” This will keep the swap open until a swap eventually happens or one of the parties cancels the swap. If you click “Keep Swap Open” we’ll email the other swapper to let them know the status change.
Hopefully this fix will make things easier for swappers who like to keep swaps open for extended periods of time, and at the same time keep their fellow swappers in the loop!
Let me know if you have any questions or additional feedback!
And we also fixed the login issue. Previously if you clicked through a link in your email you would be redirected to login if you weren’t signed in, and after you signed in you would be redirected to the main swap site page. Now you should be redirected to the link from the email you were originally trying to reach.
