More and more features and UI improvements

We asked for feedback and you responded! 

Here is what we’ve been working on the past couple of months:

  • The biggest change we made over the last few months is switching the site over to Amazon EC2.  You might be asking….What does that mean?  Did anything change?  Don’t worry, nothing has changed.  Your account and account history is safe, secure and intact.  We shifted over to Amazon to help keep the site running fast, no matter how many people may be using it.  If you have any questions or concerns about this please do not hesitate to contact us.
  • Increased the size of the “Save Changes” button on the calendar. 
  • Changed the font color of the link “Click here to select or change your dates” on the sidebar.  New users seemed to be missing that link so we wanted to make it more visible.
  • Added the option to plan multiple dates.
  • A lot of changes to the architecture of the site that will make it faster, more stable and more flexible for new features in the future.  
  • A tour of the website to give new users a better idea of how the website works and how it can help them make group plans.
