We Continue To Make The Easiest Way To Make Plans Online!

It's been awhile since I've posted anything on the blog, but we’re still working hard on the site and we're still dedicated to giving you the easiest way to make plans online!  

If you’ve made plans with your friends and family recently you may have noticed some of the new updates:

  • Finalize the date.  We added a “finalize your date” feature that locks the voting and sends everyone in your group and email with the final date and any additional information you want to add. 
  • Added a “Recent Contacts” feature that lets you quickly add the emails of people you have previously made plans with.  Very cool feature that works automatically, however it is one of those features you need to log-in to use.
  • Re-formatted the emails.  We made it easier on the eyes by breaking out the title of the plans from the details.  We did some different fonts and added a box around the details text.  Small changes but we feel they are quite effective.  We also added a tag line at the bottom of the email to let your guest know what our website is all about so they are less likely to think it’s SPAM. 
  • Added text to the landing page Some of the feedback we received was regarding users being confused about what our website does when initially landing on the homepage.  We’re still working on that but we tried to give people some more information about what does and how we can help them.  What do you think…did we accomplish this?
  • Expanded the FAQ.  While we love hearing from you personally and we’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have, most people prefer a well documented FAQ, so we’ll keep updating it as your questions roll in.  We have always focused on simplicity and ease of use, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have questions.
  • Moved the log-in boxes.  We moved the log-in boxes to the top right hand corner of the screen.  This will free up screen real estate for future features and functionality. 
  • Squashed bugs Every now and then we find some glitches….every now and then we find some more.  We are constantly building and improving to make your experience quick, simple and easy but every now and then there will be a hiccup.  So we turn the website upside down and make it drink water for 10 seconds….works like a charm every time!

So that’s the latest for now, MUCH MUCH MUCH more coming soon.  We’ll be working over the holidays to bring you some really cool new features and functionality.  I’m personally really excited about what’s coming out and can’t wait to share it with you! 

Stay tuned and come make plans with us:
