New MyTAB features

Since its launch 8 months ago, the popularity of the MyTAB features has been steadily picking up.

In TAB News by Paul Baron 2005-09-29

We have made several adjustements to its interface, launching new and simpler features. We would like to thank you again for your flexibility, encouragement and feedback. Over the past couple of months, we have observed in more details how people use MyTAB and have devised yet new features that we would like to introduce today.

Recommend events to your friends and the TAB community

The rather unpopular “Seen” events’ lists have been replaced with a Recommendation tool. Click the new heart icon to “recommend” an event. It will be automatically added to your list of “recommended events”. The data from all the users’ choices will continue to help maintain the list of Most Popular events and will still be displayed on the events’ pages. More details on the updated MyTAB FAQ here.

Note for existing MyTAB members: The eye icon now logically stands for “events you want to see” and replaces the old M icon. No data was deleted, your previously “Seen” events have simply been transfered to your new list of “recommended” events. You can clean up the list (of events you didn’t like, for example) or simply continue to keep track of events you have seen by now recommending them.

On the road…
The list of “events you want to see” can now be sorted by area, giving you instant access to all the events around you. This is especially useful if you check the site on your mobile phone. More on that soon…

And now let’s introduce some of the community features you have been requesting for months…

Public MyTAB page – Share events with your friends
You can now activate a public version of your MyTAB page. If you do, all the TAB users can then browse your lists of events you want to see and recommend. Existing MyTAB members can check their Public Options here.

To complement this, each event will now include links to the people who saved that event. A great way to discover in more details the international community using TAB.

TAB Badge – Publish your favourite events
Using the TAB Badge, you can add a list of your recommended events to your own web site or blog. It’s ultra simple to do. You can also add a list of our most popular events.
Existing MyTAB members can check their Public Options here.
