As you already know, 123ContactForm uses your account dashboard to communicate with you. All the information that you should be aware of or that might interest you is linked to from there. There are three types of messages, each with its own color: blue – for blog post recommendations; yellow – for warnings concerning disabled applications or notifications; red – for critical warnings related to TOS breaching. When there is nothing wrong with your account, you get the latest four blog posts. When something is not in order, warning messages are given priority.
The dashboard enhancement that has been active for a couple of days now is a change in message delivery. When you log into your account, a nice lightbox shows up on your screen, containing the latest and most important 123ContactForm messages. Click on the links provided to fix errors or to read about 123ContactForm here, on our blog. The messages you open (in a separate tab) are marked as read and disappear from the lightbox (unless they are flagged as red, in which case you need to fix the problem as soon as possible). When you’re done, close the lightbox and start managing your forms. After you read all latest news, the lightbox won’t show up at login anymore, until something new comes up.
On your actual 123ContactForm dashboard, the only change is that the message list looks pretty much like your mailbox: unread messages are written in bold, whereas read messages are not.
We believe this is a more efficient way to make sure that your account and forms are up-to-date and that you are aware of all new platform features and capabilities.
