Hello everyone,

A small update has been made to the availability calendar, in an attempt to make it easier to use. It is now possible to set the same availablility for a group of days at once. Just select the appropriate dates by clicking and dragging over them with your mouse, and a dialog will prompt you for your availability on those days. (Since there are only a few days left in this month, you might want to switch your view to "Next month" in order to get a better sense of how this feature works.)

If this interests you, please take a look at the updated calendar page and let me know what you think.

Thanks,

Jason

Easier and much faster.

Great!

Just what I was wishing for a few days ago Nov 28, 2008

I often dis not update my calendar because it was such a pain to do so. This helps a lot, thank you. Now if we could just get Outlook synchronization....

Thanks! Nov 29, 2008

Very useful - thanks a lot!

Another new feature that I like even more, is that we can now see the local times in the countries of all forum participants under their name - it's good to be able to see the time differences at a glance. Thanks for thinking of this too and for implementing it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Nov 29, 2008

I was one of several who requested this in a forum a while back. We were told it's on the "to-do" list, and quite honestly, I thought it had been forgotten. What a pleasant surprise! Unlike most websites, ProZ has a staff that actually is amazingly responsive to its users.

This is SO much nicer.

One small step for staff... Nov 29, 2008

... a huge leap for users/members.

Until today I haven't had my availability set just because it was time consuming and annoying to click here and to click there...

Thanks guys!

Couldn't agree more with Jane Translates. Proz is unique in that it is amazingly responsive to us users.
