Make it easier to navigate in Manage Donors or Manage Patrons
When in Manage Donations or Manage Bidders, when there are multiple pages, it is frustrating to be working on a donation on page 3, for example, then when I click on return to manage donations, I am returned all the way back to page 1, rather than the page I was working on. Also, when there are multiple pages, not all the page numbers are displayed in the selection section at the top. The display may show pages 1,2,3,4,5..........10,11,12. So if I want to go to page 6, I first have to go to page 5, then click forward to the next page. This ends up requiring multiple clicks to navigate within the section.
A couple notes:
1) Returning to the prior page after saving changes to a patron is problematic, because while you are working on one patron, another member of your staff could be working on another. ReadySetAuction is a multi-user application. This means that by the time you are ready to return to the prior page, that page may now have different contents (perhaps a bidder was added or deleted changing which bidders appear on that page), or in the extreme case, the entire page may no longer exist to go back to.
Workaround: Use Right-Click (Control-Click on Mac) to open the patron you are working on in a new window. When done, save changes and close that window. The Manage Patrons window will be right where you left it. Now do the same for the next patron in the list.
2) It is not always possible to show clickable page numbers for every page. Some events have hundreds of pages of users, and there is simply not enough physical room to display them all.
Workaround: Look at the address bar at the top of the browser window. At the end of the URL you will see "?page=3" if you are on page 3, for example. Simply edit that by replacing the "3" with the page number of your choice and hit ENTER to go to that page.
I agree! I'm wanting to go through the system to clean up our contacts and we have over 30 pages of patrons. It is taking me FOREVER to do this because it takes me back to the first page every time. It would be really helpful to go back to the same page I was working on or, better yet, have a "next patron" link that takes me to the next patrons screen without going back to the list.
I ditto Lorettas comment on always having to go back to the very first page instead of the previous page. Very time consuming on both Manage Donors and Manage Patrons tabs.
I agree, this is a major hassle when making lots of changes.
