Beta Site Update



  • I must be one of the few traders on here not to own a smartphone. I am on FI online via my Amazon Kindle and occasionally my laptop. Any chance of an Amazon App in the future or am I just going to have to get a smartphone? I already have no watch list or instant access to each players dividend returns, not sure what else I am missing out on.

    Starting to feel like a second class citizen!



  • @Mark-FI will this be ready for when the beta site is launched?



  • @Mark-FI Hi Mark,

    All looks great and thanks for opening this up for feedback. One of the greatest things about FI.

    Csv download
    Wondering about functionality to download our portfolios? Csv/ Excel format preferably. Would save us having to pester Customer Services everytime we need it.

    Player bios
    Have you considered a 'suggest edit' function for player info? This area could really do with better management and what better way than to allow the FI community to flag errors which would alert your admin team to update? Perhaps a little bonus for the best contributor...? 😉

    Player graphs. Comparative values for the average or best performer, and the footie would be great. Obviously with functionality to add and remove filters. For example, compare player a's value for the past month vs the footie performance, or best performing player/ average for the same position?

    Dividends filter in portfolio

    Historic MB scores. The article mentions PB scores but not MB if I recall correctly?



  • Mark.

    Will we be able to view and sort our portfolio players % rises/falls over time periods of our choosing?

    Will it be extratable into excel?

    Think you're going to have to get a smartphone!

    Great post!

    CSV Download
    You can now download your transaction summary as a CSV file - Is this what you meant?

    Player bios
    All this data comes in from Opta. I am aware that some stuff is out of date. Particularly club info - This is something we are trying to improve.

    Player graphs
    We are looking to add comparisons of sorts but this is quite an advanced feature and we need to ask ourselves whether this is more important than other features etc.

    Dividends
    We are adding more visibility of dividends

    Historic MB
    I like this.

    Periods of our choosing - Maybe/Maybe not. We are looking to add shorter time filters for portfolio. eg. 1 hour.

    You're not the first person to ask this so this is something I will look into



  • @Luke said in Beta Site Update:

    @Mark-FI thanks for the update Mark, looks good! Will we be able to view historical charts of MB, PB and IPD’s? Would be fantastic if we could overlay different players on a chart to compare dividend returns over time.

    Hopefully the shortlist function will be improved as well and made available in the app. With possibility to create our own shortlists under different headings.

    Have to say I like all these ideas. We would like to add comparisons of sorts but this would be a future feature



  • @Mark-FI Are you the same Mark who FI hired after the redesign post on here?



  • @Mark-FI just an idea. Could you outsource the graphing to smarterscout or one of the index analysis sites?



  • What address are we using?



  • @Mark-FI you're a legend for designing a solid beta site and you're becoming mythical for continuing to reply to people's inquiries.

    I haven't looked at the Beta, I'll look when it's finished, but judging by the feedback you're doing a top job.

    Sincerely, thanks for putting the time in!



  • Hi Mark,

    Is the Beta site designed to iron out all the issues with the current site/app? If not then you need to consider all the bugs that you currently have that are making life very difficult for me. It has major bugs and quite frankly the responses I receive to the issues are not acceptable.

    It has just taken me a full hour to get to this thread reply!

    To summarise the issues briefly - Please call me on 07970021558 for detailed explanation.

    1. I use the app and only the app and access through pin code/thumbprint. To post this reply you need to log on to the website not the app. When you try to do that it says Invalid user details, when you do it not through the app then it works , hence I can post this.

    2. Most importantly. I cannot receive emails from FI. I have been given many excuse's as to why not - gambling emails are blocked, check your server etc, etc. All a load of bull, I received emails from FI up till the end of march then they stopped, upon contacting support I was told change your email to a gmail/hotmail etc! Why would I want to do that??

    I want to get emails to the email address I registered with, the email that FI started to send emails to, the email that FI welcomed me to, I do not want to create another email address just for FI!

    1. Selling values - I am told its a bug and FI do not know how long it will take to fix ( I asked a full 2 months ago) My portfolio show reasonably healthy 24, 7 day, and all time profits in Green. When I click on a player to sell it shows the selling price not at the value I have attained but at a lower value as a sell price.

    So the headline figures in Green are in fact way out as the sell price is not reflective of my profit price, so the headline figures in Green are not correct as my profits are a lot lower based on the sell price and not the current value.

    Give me a call and we can chat - 07970021558



  • @Mark-FI
    I was thinking of longer periods. For example right now i would be interested to see the % rise/fall since the start of summer because i bought a number of players for transfer possibilities. Also the price of my players since the bonus period ended. These are just examples



  • @NewUser265348

    For a variety of reasons, I would recommend removing your mobile phone number from a public forum on the world wide web.

    It will only cause you grief mate ... 🤔👍

    Especially when people keep ringing him up asking to speak to "NewUser265348"



  • Dividends in the portfolio section is a must in my opinion, like the look overall. 👍



  • Looks great, when will it be available?

    Looking forward to it sooooo much, hope its what it's all cracked up to be.

    Im sure it will.

    Great work



  • thanks for coming on here @Mark-FI - as a largely laptop user, miss the old new Beta Site. Yours looks much better though - when do you think it might be live? also wondering if it will make possible having a different IPO process than previously?



  • @Mark-FI

    Looks good

    I’m a iPhone app user, making the forum user friendly would be good. If I see a players name someone has mectioned and I want to check out on the index I have to hit the back button about 10 times to get to the index.

    Maybe you could somehow link the players name when typed in a posted in the forum to there index profile and all you had to do was click there name and it takes you to there profile. Don’t know how easy that would be, maybe the poster will have to add the link to the profile of the player instead of it automatically linking the profile when typed.

    Having a forum easier to navigate and button that returnes you back to the index would be helpful.

    Also... when on the fourm, if you click ok Football Idex at the top, it takes you to the page to download the app as if you was a new user.
    That could be better used for fourm/app navigation

    And turning notifications back on, it was good getting knowing when you’ve sold a player when not in the app, could also have notifications of player price changes, so you are able to catch price drops if you aren’t in the app at the time

    More FI staff active of the forums and communication via the forums. FI should be interacting with FI community on the forums not just twitter or YouTube. I totally missed the bonus deal, it was only when I saw someone post about it in the forum that I looked in to it and registered.

    That’s it for now, I’m tired and I’ve had a few beers 🍻

    Cheers



  • Hi Mark, thanks for this, looks really good so far.

    I'd love to see some additions to the portfolio screen, there are a couple of things that come to mind:

    • The ability to create folders within my portfolio and file players in each folder, i.e. Folder 1 - Long term holds, Folder 2 - IPDs, Folder 3 - Short term flips etc etc. Reason being that when I review my portfolio I don't really care how much my long term holds have gone up or down, but I do about the short term ones.

    • The ability to be able to sort portfolio by player increase and decrease by time period, like last 24 hours or 7 days. Similar to the point above, so I can more easily get a view on who is rising and who is dropping.

    Thanks for the opportunity to feedback.



  • Simple query from me.... what’s the site address for the beta site?
