actually i've 2 problems, a question and an idea ...

DOOMzilla 7 years ago updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 6 years ago 4

problems:

-for me saving for later / favoriting doesn't work! :(

-for some feeds/subscription i get NO article! O.o :( i guess flowreader show only very new articles cos i tried with a few not (very) old and .. nothing! :(


the question:

-how to add more folders/categories/tags/... or whatever they/its are? all my subscriptions are added under General, how to make and choose another one?


the idea:

-what if articles wouldn't be marked by default as read and only manually? :P ;) (eventually having a button "mark all as read" for who'd want that)


thanks in advance for any solution/fix/answer/response/... blah

Hi, 
Thanks for you message! I will do my best to answer what I can. 


Problems: 
  • We are aware there is an issue with Save for Later and the developers are working to fix it. 
  • I have sent your message on to the team and someone will take a look at it some time this afternoon. 
Question: 
  • Right now, we don't have a way to manage your categories. However, we are planning to implement it very soon. It has been designed and it is the process of being developed. We would like to have it ready for everyone soon :) 
Idea: 
  • We would like to implement something similar, but a "mark as unread" and a "mark as read" option. What do you think of this feature? 
Hope this is helpful for you! Have a great day!

thank you very mch for answer! :D i cann't even believe how fast you repplied me! O.o :) (on most of foums/boards/... and such, i usually wait many hours, or even/rather days! :))

well ... related to your question i'd still prefer to mark manually as read articles BUT, if no chance for that, then what about a "mark all as UNread" (and, again, eventually, for others, cos i don't really want that, but im sure that others do, "mark all as read" ) buttons/links... ? however, if not even that is possible, then im fine even with what you said, but will be very annoying and tiring to click "mark as unread" for every single article i'd want to see it (read it!) again/more later ... even, then could be a problem, how already i noticed on another online feed reader, every time when you scroll again over a given article (at least when is expanded and not shown as list, where is the case) it'll be marked again automatically as read! you'll have to mark it again as unread again and again ... every time you scroll over it :(

right, we have Save for later / Favorites (well, we'll have! :)) ) option but ...

well, i think that is needed a bit more clarification about how i personally see things ... in Favorites/Saved for later/... i'd keep only articles i'd need/like/... to see again later, even after days, weeks ... (maybe months too?? O.o :)) ), i wouldn't save in that section all others articles i just want to read more/better just short time later ... i usually scroll over through all articles, right ALL of them or from a category/section and read first what i like (or im interested about) more; then next ones (by my prefernce), and so on ... so, NOT in order they are received shown! scrolling up and down all the time i'd mark 'em ALL as read! if i change a bit category im reading and returning on previous one, not sure if here too, but in most of online feed readers, i won't see again read articles (not read by me but marked as read), that's be very annoying for me :( (alternative, to mark manually again as unread every time when i scroll again over an article, it's not too much better ... however would be very tiring and i could skip items (articles), or wrong click near button or ...)


sorry for so long repply, but i tried to as clear as possible what i'd want/like/... and why ... hope i was enough clear ...


and thanks again for everything! your answers and effort for making this reader, however over all i like it enough much (enough to ask for things here, what i usually not do too ofetn (cos im very lazy to type ... :)) ) :)

Hi! Wow, thank you for the message and enthusiasm :)  I'm going to take a look at this tonight and forward it to the design team. We'll look it over together and see what we can do. I can't promise an immediate response, but I promise you that we'll go over the request and really consider the details! 

Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We love feedback like this! It's great for us to hear what our users want, and it's extremely helpful for improving FlowReader! Have a great day!

i noticed that you already added a "mark all as read" button (even before my previous comment!) but still no "mark all as UNread" (or, alternatively, buttons for every article (to mark/unmark as read))

also, i see that actually, or articles aren't really as read by deafult, or you (somebody there) changed that ... maybe, what happened with my few articles what appear as read, is that i tried to save them for later ...? if im right only articles i tried to save for later appear as read (and not all which i scrolled over them)

well, thank you very much again for the try to help and ... hell yea! i'll wait to see eventual changes :D

Hi, 


We're still working to fix the "Save for Later" section, so any issues you might be experiencing could be due to a bug on our end with this function. 


I looked through your other message again as well, and I just want to make sure that I understand everything. You would prefer: 


1) A "Mark all as unread" (without an automatic scrolling "Read" option - we have had some requests for this as well, so the design team will have to discuss the pros and cons :D) 


2) A manual "Mark as read" without an automatic feature 


What do you think about adding a "Recently Read" section, so you can find the articles you've read, even if you did not "Save for Later" (once this is fixed)? 


Thanks for your feedback and suggestions! We really appreciate it!
