I really wish that updates and so-called "improvements" didn't seem to so consistently RUIN a good thing. The "new and improved" Orders page redesign has effectively made the most important page on the Logos website essentially WORTHLESS to me--at least as it stands now. What just a day or two ago was a model of efficiency and "at-a-glance" simplicity has become a tangle of useless garbage. Oh, sure, the information is still there...if I want to take out my pick axe and have at it--only problem is, I don't. I don't want to waste time trying to extract necessary and critical information one dribble at a time, especially when it was all laid out before me in a sensible and efficient manner for a decade or more until just a few hours ago.

For example, the most important part of my orders page--the orders which are near to "going live" and thus require my present on-going attention--are now sunk in the middle of my extensive list of PrePubs, whereas they were originally listed right where they should be...at the top of the page.

BEFORE:

NOW:

...or...

Notice how clicking the "Status" heading creates either an ascending or descending order beginning with either "Under Contract" or "Gathering Interest" listings...leaving the most important "Shipping Soon" items buried in the middle. Angry Equally irritating and infuriating is the fact that each time the Orders page loads the default presentation is by PreOrder date...percentage-wise, one of the least important bits of info on the page. Grrrrrr. And there is the obvious lack of the alternating light blue and very light blue which is a highly useful presentation characteristic that is helpful no longer.

Sadly, there is more. Notice how the dates below are not sequential because of that 1, 12, 2 programming bug. Ugh.

I'm quite sure whoever decided to "fix" the Orders page added whatever odd bits they felt were needful, but cutting off the arms and legs in order to apply contact lenses is a bit of FAIL no matter how you look at it.

I tend to look at it like this...

Super Angry

I encountered this problem, and now understand it. Essentially, the status button is not working at all. For now, it's like a dummy button.

See the left column, your orders are still being sorted by date.

The other buttons work normally.

Rolling out a change that is still "beta" is a questionable decision, but I think the problem should be sorted out in a few days.

Sorry for the trouble!  A fix for this problem is currently in testing and should be deployed within a week.  In this post Cameron describes how they should be sorted: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/72656/506144.aspx#506144
