Original Post: New Members Area Control Panel

We are very excited to announce the brand new ArtWanted Members Control Panel! This major update has been in the making for a very long time and is now available for all members to manage their portfolio going forward.

The Members Area has been completely redesigned to match the look and feel of the ArtWanted public website and we are now calling it the member “Control Panel”. The new Control Panel is faster loading, easier to use and adds several new features over the previous version. Here are the details…

Control Panel Upgrades

    New Design – Every page in the Members Area was rebuilt from scratch to match the look and feel of the public facing ArtWanted.com website. The layout, colors, fonts & style is now consistent between the public website and the private members site.

    Mobile Friendly – The new Control Panel is designed to look amazing on mobile phones and tablet computers. You can now manage your portfolio and view your statistics on the go from anywhere - and it works great.

    Dashboard – The new Control Panel Dashboard allows you to get a quick snapshot of your ArtWanted account and activity within just a few seconds. Click on any dashboard number to be taken to the supporting page with more details.

    Simple Uploads – The main use of the Control Panel is to upload new portfolio images and we have made this even easier. You can now simply drag your images onto the page, and they will post to your portfolio without filling out any forms. All image information can be added after the upload.

    Portfolio Power Score – We have created a new system to show the “Power” your portfolio has to attract visitors and buyers. Each member has an individual Portfolio Power score and a corresponding report to show you what you can do to improve your ArtWanted portfolio.

    Improved Stats Reports – Our new statistics area has better looking charts and graphs for you to see the visitors to your online portfolio. We even have an individual report for each image in your portfolio that gives you additional details about that image.

    Liked Images Report – We recently introduced the “Like” feature for any image on ArtWanted. You can now view a report that shows all of the images you have “liked” in the past, so you can go back and visit them again. We also display how many “likes” each of your images has received.

    Minor Upgrades Everywhere – As we said above, every page in the Control Panel has been built from scratch to make it better than before. You will find dozens of minor features, layout improvements and simplification everywhere you look.

Rollout Plan

    We know that change is sometimes hard (even when it’s better) so we have created a roll-out plan to have everyone get used to the new changes. This will also give us time to fix any issues that are reported by our users.

    February – The Old Members Area will still be the default, but members can explore and use the New Control Panel at anytime.

    March – The new Control Panel will be made the default, but members can still go back to the old Members Area if desired.

    April – We will shut off the old Members Area and everyone will be using the new Control Panel.

    We want to hear from you about the new Control Panel. Tell us what you like, what you don’t like, and what you would like to see added. This feedback will help us improve the new Control Panel for everyone. Please reply to this message thread with your feedback, or submit it privately through a support ticket.
