    When I am clicking around looking at the new interface I noticed that when I set the number of rows per page to, lets say 10, and then I change the report from last 7 days to "current month" (for example), it goes back to 25 rows per page. It happens no matter what type of report I am viewing -- the rows per page always goes back to 25.

    Can we have it stick? If I change it to 10 can it stay at 10? Maybe a global setting in our account? Just a thought, very nice changes - I like the dashboard but maybe smaller boxes so more boxes fit on a row...

    Update: Scratch the dashboard resizing request, I just noticed the handle on the bottom right of the boxes! The rows-per-page suggestion remains, however. :)

    Haha much agreed! We wanted to go live Jan 13-15 which is Monday-Wed, which is what normally we stick to. However that didn't happen and kept getting pushed back. Now we had a choice, go live Friday or go live Monday when half of us are on flights to Namescon. So Friday made far more sense.

    Previous design was simpler and nicer in my opinion... and faster (on my old machine).

    Currently even fonts are too small in 1920x1080 at 96 dpi.
    They are too small even when Chromium is configured with Large fonts and Minimum font size is 12, font - DejaVu Sans.

    Overall, I don't like any heavy panels at all...
    The simpler - the better, lightweight philosophy.

    And I think that Bodis must focus on monetization... not on cosmetic changes...
    For example, filtering of US bots is very bad, it was reported many times here and via tickets...
    Opt-out of MX monetization...
    etc.

    Suggestion for your future UI releases...
    Release it firstly for beta-testers... not for all users...
    + offer the possibility to switch into previous version.
    Thanks.

    ParkingCrew did only very minor changes in their minimalistic design since they started.

    With Bodis already 2nd or even 3rd MAJOR update... and overloaded with JavaScript.

    And in previous version I was able to search just by domain lists like:
    example1.tld
    example2.tld
    example3.tld

    Today it doesn't work anymore.

    Now it works only in comma separated format:
    example1.tld,example2.tld,example3.tld

    And please switch Management area to CURRENT MONTH by default.
    Now it is strictly bound to ALLTIME.

    @matt_bodis

    couple efficiency fixes plz:

    plz make permamanent login like before with checkbox... now i need relog every day

    plz make default first click sort order from highest to lowest... now for instnce if i click VISITS column, it sorts by lowest first.. which is basically useless for most... and we need to click twice to get highest first.

    plz make a nice big tab selection like before, instead of dropdown menu... for add domains, manage domains etc.. its all extra steps and work now... and we're all here for efficiency... yourself included i assume. thx ;)

    i agree with you here....about monetization.

    personally i do not like parking crew and switched completely to bodis some 2 years ago.
    i find bodis interface and monetizatin better... but i agree that its not good to try to add to many things.... as it messes up the experience, makes things less efficient. efficiency is crucial.

    even with all these changes now made recently, the most importnat thing to all is revenu numbers. and since update i had a tiny 2$ yesterday and 50cents so far today... and tough i never had big park revenue numbers, it does add up to 100-200$ per month often enough to keep the names with bodis.

    some changes are great.. like which terms get clicked most... but better revenue numbers are all that counts in the end... so it does make one wonder (despite the best intentions of bodis im sure), whether it wouldn't be just best to concentrate all or almost all their innovation efforts and updates, and their money and time, on increasing monetization numbers for their clients... which of course would also increase bodis revenue in the end.

    Hello @alcy,

    Yes, we do expect to address many of those suggestions we've received based on the feedback we've gotten since launching the new Bodis. But we're also deploying fixes right now to ensure the new UI is fully functional and bug free.

    Thanks.

    Which tier2 setting are you speaking of?

    We did not make any setting adjustments.

    If previous UI wasn't deleted - please add one more link at the bottom to switch into it...

    sorry for copy paste from above but my post was not replied to... so let me ask again if u per chance can make these easy yet pertinent changes:

    plz make permamanent login like before with checkbox... now i need relog every day

    plz make default first click sort order from highest to lowest... now for instnce if i click VISITS column, it sorts by lowest first.. which is basically useless for most... and we need to click twice to get highest first.

    plz make a nice big tab selection like before, instead of dropdown menu... for add domains, manage domains etc.. its all extra steps and work now... and we're all here for efficiency... yourself included i assume. thx ;)

    I like previous UI... it was simple, faster, with good search options and dashboard... and font sizes were better etc.
    For me personally - this update is significant downgrade in terms of usability and simplicity.
    I use it a few days already - and still feel discomfort... so with me it is incompatible definitely.

    Permanent login has been added. See login page. Thanks for the tip on this.

    Add, Manage, Reporting page is accessible via a single click. Instead of on top, it is now on left side.

    Default sort order and font size increase is coming (as well as the ability to choose font size)

    Tech team is telling me font size has been reverted to what it was in legacy UI.

    So that also should now be resolved.
