Unsolicited change to the mobile display. Also posted under questions

I originally posted this as a question but I have decided to also repost as a problem!!
Are other users as upset as I am with the change to the Mobile display. A few weeks back several columns of vital information vanished. I searched everywhere for a setting as I assumed I had somehow made the change myself. I finally contact support and was advised that this change had been made intentionally. Further Trity from Sharesight admitted this change had been made without any forum discussion or request and that as the next update would be four months away could not be fixed. My mobile now only displays the company name, a considerable blank area, then QTY, Value and Return. Gone is the Share Price. Capital Gain, Dividend and Currency have all being lumped into Return making it mostly useless. I have been Sharesight Pro user for about four years and I cant believe they would make such a change without any user consultation and with many more important requests outstanding. If you agree please join me in trying to get this fixed ASAP as I am sure there would be plenty of room on any mobile a Sharesight user would own.

  • Great mistake to change lay-out. Please reinstate original.

  • Things change - I think we all need to accept some change to platforms like this. And they don't really need our 'permission' to do so. If we no longer like the product being offered, we give our feedback and we stop paying. All the changes that they're making seem to be with good intentions, and any change will always upset some people.

    The issue I have is there has been missing information or incorrect information reported while they've been making the changes. All changes seem to be made 'live' without proper testing or checking. I do agree also that some of the changes being made seem to be 'worse' than the original product - and I never experienced an issue with the original product - so I'm not really sure what's going on.

    Aside from the examples I've already given on this forum - in the past, once a dividend passed it's ex- date, there would be a little orange number next to the share on the homepage showing unconfirmed transactions. For the last month or two it's been gone - however maybe once a week when I login it returns, but then next time disappears again. I wish they'd stop the constant 'tinkering' and just make the changes once after proper testing.

    Hi
    I am a NZ user and this issue only appeared a couple of weeks ago. Previously I had no issue as seeing the same screen on my iPad as on my large computer. You are lucky you get the company name I only see the codes.
    Much prefer the original version as well.

    As the originator of this post I am pleased to see some support but nothing like as much as I expected. The mobile display is so disappointing I have given up using it and only access Sharesight through my MS Surface.

    More support for a reversion, or at least an option to the old display please!

  • I’m annoyed - is a good one!
    I agree - I travel for a few months every year and only take my iPad 6 & keyboard cover with me. I had no issues using the programme on it previously so still can't understand why the change has been made at all.

    If some people have an issue could they give us the option to choose which version we want to be looking at.

    This new version doesn't fit my screen properly anyway. It appears to floating in parts and you have to scroll along to see the end of the line.

    I don't know when dividends come in as there is no lightening marker etc.

    WHY CHANGE SOMETHING THAT WASN'T BROKEN!!!

  • Hi Lib,

    On an ipad 6 you should be able to view all columns including the new dividend indicator when using the ipad horizontally.

    We haven't made any changes in this area for quite some time.

    Here's what I see when using the ipad 6 horizontally.
