All Things Upwork
April 14, 2010 by oDesk

oDesk is constantly evolving as a marketplace, community, and tool that changes how the world works. Today, we took steps toward creating a more streamlined site navigation system. The changes are subtle, visible only to users who are signed in, but we’d like to share some of the more noticeable differences:

  • New user Home
    • Your personalized Home page will now appear after you log in
    • Visit anytime by clicking “Home” or the oDesk logo from anywhere in the site (once you’ve logged in)
  • Streamlined username dropdown menu
    • New access to “Account & Profile Settings” and “Sign Out”
    • Some of the less-used (but still important!) pages have been removed from the menu. You can now access the following pages by visiting “Account & Profile Settings”:
      • User Info
      • My Provider Profile
      • My Company Profile
      • My Teams
      • My Tests
      • Extending oDesk
  • Message Center Changes
    • The indicator shown next to “Messages” now reflect the total number of unread Inbox messages and Notifications.
    • “Account Alerts” and “Updates” have been removed from the menu – they are now integrated into the user Home.
    • “Notifications” is now the best place to find the latest communications about your account.

Stay tuned — more changes are under way, all designed to make your oDesk experience better.
