Is it just me or does anyone else miss the old website layout?! :(
Absolutely. I can't find my inbox which I used a lot to remember calls I wanted to go to.
When I do my saved search it only shows the first page and doesn't let me go to the other pages!
AND I used to get emails every day of my saved searches and now i dont...
I love the new resume layout!
Hate the new audition search layout. It's not as easy to read descriptions for characters you may be right for.
I agree on the audition search. Haven't checked the resume? is it easy to submit? is our resume saved? thanks.
My saved searches aren't saving right!!! ARGH!
If you're using IE, try opening a firefox browser window. Nothing's saving for me on IE, but Firefox works fine. There might be some issues that need fixing there.
I am having the same problems with Chrome re: not saving. Resume does look much better -- but the casting section needs some work.
Is anyone else finding it hard to find out WHERE auditions are being held? I get the info and the times, but the studio information seems to be left out. Any advice on this?
GAH! Ditto with the saved search emails! It takes so much time to go online and look at everything! And I am also having trouble finding the audition location info. I see times...but not locations...
Also, but maybe it's just me, but I often don't see an audition location listed except "March 6th and 7th in New York, NY".
But maybe I'm not looking hard enough? There were one or two with studio listed in the breakdown. Otherwise I don't see them.
Let me clarify. That was an example. I'm having this problem with the majority of postings.
jlactoria08 and Comicgirl22 - it took me an astounding amount of time to find the locations on the new Backstage: it's towards the top of the page on the right, in a black box. It lists the studio name, address, and even has a nifty little google map.
It looks nice, but the way the site is set up, your eye doesn't even see it because that's normally where ads go (off to the side, in a box). Web viewers have been practically conditioned to ignore that part of the page. I'd highly recommend they relocate this essential information and incorporate it within the main column of text (perhaps include it where the audition dates are now).
My wish list -- the ability to download a spreadsheet of your filtered audition search -- with name of theatre, name of production(s), type of audition, date of audition, location of audition, at a minimum -- that you could further sort/prioritize and help manage options. I know, dreaming, but it would be glorious.
