I just noticed that the destination is listed on my Books to Mail tab. When did that show up? Now it is easier to spot those orders going to the same person :) Thanks PBS.

Yes, it is new and very nice.  It's also different on the books I mailed tab; it shows the date mailed without having to click on the details tab.  Thanks R&R, and gang !!

I thought there was something different about it.  I love it.  Pat

Ah!  Neet!  I don't know how many times I've sent several books to the same person -- all neatly wrapped in their very own individual packages -- LOL! 


Now -- if I can just remember to actually LOOK at that!

plus on the 'books i've requested' tab, you can see more info.

i've got one that looks like this:

Requested On: 7/7/08 6:13 PM ET
Will Mail by: 7/10/2008 11:00 PM ET

and a couple that look similar to this:

Requested On: 7/3/08 11:00 PM ET
Printed On: 7/3/2008 11:10 PM ET
Will Mail by: 7/8/2008 11:00 PM ET

i don't know yet what it looks like if they just click the 'i can mail within 2 days' button, but probably something similar.  before for orders where a date was chosen you could only tell that they'd printed by seeing if the cancel button was still there.

i like the changes!

I noticed it as well.  And the funny thing is - I'm sending a WL book to someone that sent me a book in March.  Last week I sent a book to a member in Montana which was the final book in a series that she sent a middle book in to me a few weeks ago.  I would have thought this would be fairly unusual with so many members and so many books!  And so close together, too!

I also noticed in the Transaction Archive  where it gives :Request Date "also has a "was book received " if you click on that it also gives you options what to do .I do not recall that before .

Is that a new feature ? If it is I love it , they are doing some great changes , keep up the good work PBS

If you'd like take a look at my bookshelf

I think the notice for books with requestor conditions is new also. At least, I don't remember it being so big.
