Community Pricing Bids sort by progress is not working since the new product pages last year.

As I see it, it would be easy to fix and then we users could concentrate on more important complaints.

Hm. It looks like it does for me - but since the search results don't show the graphs directly, maybe I'm wrong. Want to elaborate with specific examples?

Screenshot below

The percentages are around 25, 30, 20,65, 50, 20, 70, 40, 60, 30, 10 that list, when going down with titles.

I have Windows 8.1 but that should not make a difference.

Ah, I see. You're looking at https://www.logos.com/account/communitypricingbids - I think you're right that this sort is not correct. I was looking at https://www.logos.com/search?sortBy=Progress&limit=30&page=1&filters=status-communitypricing_Status&ownership=all

As I recall, this used to work before the last major website redesign.  I guess it's not that big of a deal, but I'd like to see it fixed.  It was handy to be able to sort your community pricing bids by progress to see how they were coming along.

For what it is worth, I also have found the loss of "progress" functionality (now apparently limited to the ordering of only the items/bids that have crossed into "closing" territory) in the Community Pricing Bids to be problematic and discouraging.

I used to follow the community pricing bids regularly looking to see how bids were progressing (or not).  But now I no longer bother as I would have to go to each individual product bid page to check for any progress.  For a while I would go to the old legacy site, but that got harder to do over time, so I stopped doing that too.  And thus, without an easy way to evaluate the progress of their bids, I wonder if others are also paying less attention to the Community Pricing option.  I would not be surprised if that were the case.  Unless the Faithlife intention is to discourage the use of Community Pricing, I would think it wise to restore or enable the functionality that was lost in the transition to the new website structure.

Lest I come across too negatively, I am grateful for all of the wonderful functionality and usefulness of both the Faithlife websites and the Logos software.  They are a blessing indeed.  And yet, this one issue has been a disappointment, so I encourage Faithlife to consider making that adjustment in order to keep Community Pricing relevant and effective for what it is intended to do.  And that, I believe, is to justify the investment of resources and effort into the development of certain products that might not otherwise make it into production for use with Logos software.  Peace!
