    Enhanced search capabilities, greater privacy and a more streamlined user interface are just some of the improvements you can

Written by Greg Beneteau

In April, nearly 1000 users completed a survey intended to solicit feedback about thecannon. You told us what you liked and what you didn't .

Thecannon took those ideas to heart when planning a series of website upgrades, the first of which went online early this morning. Enhanced search capabilities, greater privacy and a more streamlined user interface are just some of the improvements you can expect from this new and improved website.

September is a busy month for textbook sales, so thecannon has focused its efforts on upgrading the classifieds section.

We are excited to offer the following new services and features to our users:

-Personalized searches that enable you to receive email notices when items that you’re looking for are posted.

-Personalized favourites that allow you to save classifieds for later viewing.

-An upgraded posting system that allows you to include up to five pictures in a classified.

-More search fields that allow you to narrow the scope of your searches.

-Account privacy settings that allow you to hide your contact email when posting a classified. (A contact form will appear instead)

-A Map view that allows you to see exactly where rental housing and apartments are located in Guelph.

-Flag abuse button that allows you to report suspicious or offensive classifieds.

-Fraud alert system that will warn you when scammers have been reported on thecannon.

-And much more!

 In the coming months, thecannon will be making improvements to other parts of the website. During this time, we will be looking to our users to provide feedback. If you have any questions, comments or concerns about anything you see on thecannon, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Have a great year, and keep loading thecannon!
