All Things oDesk
April 14, 2010 by oDesk

The next time you log into your oDesk account, take a look around your new user Home. Here you’ll find an overview of your work life on oDesk, including modules for Notifications, My Teams, Payments, My Job Applications (for providers), and My Job Openings (for buyers). Each module also provides links to dig deeper into the information presented. Look familiar? The Dashboard we introduced a few weeks ago has graduated from beta to become your new user Home. We’ve made a few tweaks from the beta based on user input and we added modules to make the page more useful to both providers and buyers.


The new user Home is now the default landing page whenever you log in. Once you’re logged in, whenever you want to return there from anywhere in the site, just click the oDesk logo. (We’ve made some other changes to the site navigation as well – you can read more about the navigation changes here.)

Questions? Comments? Suggestions for new Dashboard modules? Let us know how we can make your user Home more useful!

    Why any online service would link to or from or in anyway hook up with Facebook is beyond me; as soon as any online or cloud app adds facebook stuff I lose immediate respect and interest in it. Too bad.

    Thank you for the post. I like this place and always use to learn new things. The new home page looks different and more friendly. Please add more payment so we as a freelancer can work more easily.

    Could you add our total hours worked? This will be helpful since some jobs want us to have worked X amount of ours. Otherwise I think this is great.
