Suggestion: See all swaps I've participated in, at a glance

On my dashboard these are listed in my Statistics box:

Swaps sent:  16
Swaps received:  15
Swaps lost:  0
Events created:  10

To make it easier to find current and old swaps I've participated in I would like each of these to be linked so I can see a list of all swaps I've sent, received, and created. And, I'd like to the lists to be linked to each of the swaps.

I'm having trouble remembering how to use the swap tracker feature. First thing I do is go to my dashboard and try to access my current and old swaps from the dashboard. To anyone reading this I'd love to know if others have the same problem, or if it's just me.

P.S. I tried to add a screenshot, but using the "Insert/edit image" option didn't work. I got a "HTTP error: 400" message. I'm using Firefox.

From your stats there are no links to your all swaps, they have their own menu right now. Only the swaps you have to send out are visible on your Dashboard.

I would recommend moving finished swaps to your archive. This will allow you to conveniently look back on both incoming and outgoing swaps in the archive.

This way your "Incoming swaps" and "Outgoing swaps" will show only the snail mail in progress.

If we can improve the swaptracker menu/page for you and other members,  please let us know how you think we could improve it for everyone 💭

⏳I will look into your upload problem with Firefox.

Hi @9o96o,

The "HTTP error: 400" message you received might have been due to the image format not being supported. We only supported png, jpg and gif formats.

I've made some changes to the upload script and expanded the list of supported image formats. Now you can upload images in the following formats: jpg, png, webp, gif, bmp, svg, and jpeg.

Could you please give it another shot and try uploading the image again? If it doesn't work, please check the extention of the file. Feel free to reply to this post with a lovely image to test if everything is working as expected now.

If you continue to experience any difficulties, don't hesitate to let us know, and we'll be more than happy to assist you further.

Happy posting!

@9o96o 

We've given our dashboard a fresh new look! It's now more user-friendly and visually appealing, making navigating through your Snail Mail experience more accessible than ever.

The most exciting part? We've introduced a fantastic new feature that we think you'll love – the ability to re-order your dashboard items. You can now arrange the things on your dashboard according to your preferences. Whether you want your Outgoing Snail Mails at the top, your Statistics, or even your Activities is up to you.

Our brand-new 'Drag and Drop to Reorder' functionality makes customizing your dashboard a breeze. No more static layouts! Just click, hold, drag and release the dashboard items exactly where you want them. It's an intuitive and seamless process that empowers you to create a personalized dashboard that reflects your Snail Mail journey.

We've added three new pages to your request. Directly from your Dashboard, you can easily access all your sent and received swaps and a page displaying all the events you've created. This means you'll find everything you need on a single page, regardless of whether it's in your incoming/outgoing swap tracker or your archive.

Additionally, we've incorporated a sorting feature that empowers you to arrange items from the oldest to the newest or vice versa, placing you in control of how you navigate your content.

Ready to give it a shot? Head over to My Profile, then click on "My Dashboard" to edit the looks of your dashboard. 

You can access the enhanced dashboard experience by visiting https://www.snailmailfriends.com/my-dashboard.

You're welcome 😀 !

Do you think it could be possible to include upcoming events in the swap calendar (last signup date) ? Maybe with a different color to avoid confusion with the events in progress. I think it would be very helpful to see at a single glance what projects are available and what time is left before signing up.

@Emmanuelle Love your idea! 😍 I actually just shifted gears from another project on SMF to dive into working on your idea. I'll make sure to keep you posted and let you know when it's good to go!

@Emmanuelle And... I'm all done! Could you please take a look at the calendar to confirm if this aligns with your expectations? Check https://www.snailmailfriends.com/calendar

I've updated the color scheme for all upcoming events, they are purple now, added a subtle icon, and ensured that only upcoming events you haven't joined yet are displayed. Even if you mark an event as "considering," it will still be visible, but once you've joined that particular event, it will be automatically hidden. When you click on it, you will be re-directed to that specific event.

I hope you find these changes to your liking!

Ps. How fast was that? 😆

Awesome ! I was at the restaurant with my family and have just been back home. I couldn't believe it : the new calendar was already ready 🤩. That was fast !! And it is just what I needed ! I can see all the upcoming events for each month and it is great to be able to click on them to get the details if I don't remember them. Thank you so much, Marco ! It is very useful.

Have a lovely evening !

Thank you so much for making the calendar suggestion Emmanuelle. And thank you Marco for making the quick upgrade to the calendar! It's an excellent feature. I think this will also be a good way to get people aware and interested in joining approaching swap events.
