Suggestions for Houzz!
February 1, 2013 in Using Houzz
It would be great if we could go directly to the end of a discussion instead of having to scroll to the end of the page.

Also, would love to be able to stop the automatic following of feedback posted into "My Houzz" just because I answered a dilemma 39 posts ago!

Thanks for the suggestions, abbshel! Regarding the scrolling issue, do you want to go to the bottom of the discussion to read the latest comment, or to post your own comment?

Good point about the posts going into your feed – you can unsubscribe from email notifications but I'm not sure if you can take them out of your feed. I'll talk to the team and get back to you!

I want to go to the bottom of the discussion to read the latest post.

I am not subscribed to email notifications. I would like the ability to stop having a particular discussion(s) of my choosing deleted from my feed. We shouldn't have to endlessly follow a feed we are no longer interested in, or have said feed fill our feed section!

Thank you for responding and I hope some changes/control will be forthcoming.

Hey Abbshel,

Just wanted to let you know that we just released an update to the discussions page that will let you scroll to the bottom of the comments. When you're on the main discussions page just click the small comment icon circled in red.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

Thank you - that's great! Thanks for listening.

.....Now, if we could just delete discussions we no longer wish to follow out of our "feed," that would be so helpful too. :)

Hi just another suggestions about discussions pages, I have been scrolling back up to view the photos of the submitters before commenting.
1. If the photos could go down one side while reading other comments that would be great. Then you could view their photos that they submitted while you read the comments.

2. It would be helpful to have them in the comment box also while writing your own comment.

3. Then have a sort feature ...most recent or have the most recent at the top. People add new photos etc., and make comments to new photos etc.
Thanks! Love Houzz;)

All these updates are great and I am lovin Houzz!!

However I do have another request - is it possible in our feed to show a discussion ONCE with the latest comments at the bottom? I find some 'talkative" discussions can keep me scrolling for a long time - today I must have had about 15 posts in my feed of the same discussion with the same comments - so it is redundant. I am sure you will have noticed this and I bet you are dealing with it - but just thought I would mention it.

Hi Everybody,

Thanks for the comments!

We're working on improving discussions and your feed to make them easy and useful to you. While I can't guarantee what we'll be up to next I will make sure to pass your comments on to our developers and keep you up to date as things change.

Best, Alyssa

@abbshel, we just released an update that you can "leave" the discussion at the bottom of discussion.

"Clicking to stop notification" will stop new activities in your feed, but you will still see the old ones.
We will continue working on this.

Thank you for answering dilemmas to help others out and being Houzzer :)

I would still love to be able to delete discussions from my feed. That seems like a simple enough option to include. It's seems ridiculous to have to keep them all especially when we have now clicked that we no longer even want to follow. Even so, I do appreciate your updates.

Hi Alyssa,
I have a new suggestion:

Could we edit our photos in our projects - they load in the order we upload. And sometimes I may want to edit the sequence in which I want them viewed. Could it be possible to re-order them?

@abbshel Thank you for your suggestion! As I said, we will continue working on this. Hopefully, next week, you won't see any old activities in your feed. Will keep you posted :)

Hey, abbshel, the discussion you opted out of should already be deleted from your feed now. Can you check it out? Thank you for your patience!
