I wish there was a way for the user to set preferences to customize the home page so we would have some control over what we see.

I have never looked at anything in the "Grower Reports", and now there is the list of the "Local Reports". I understand that they are unique and valuable features for many ATP users, and there are probably many who enjoy seeing the listings. They just don't interest me, with the gardening that I do.

Sometimes I look at the Newest Database Comments, but I always scan down through the Recent Threads - which is always way at the bottom.

I'd love it if I could eliminate the Grower Reports and Local Reports from my Home Page, or even better, if it was a clickable heading that I could open if I wanted, or a link to go to another area if I really wanted to see them. I would prefer if I didn't have to scroll down through all those inches of "real estate" on my old iPad, through the things that I never look at, to get to the Recent Threads that I do look at.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Being able to customize the homepage has long been on my wishlist of things to do. One day...

Thumbs up

Maybe being able to choose which order we see them in would be a simpler option?

Thanks for considering it….

Customizing the order and which ones you see are basically one and the same from a technical point of view.

Dave ...

Would it be possible to move the growers reports below the RECENT THREADS section ? I, too, don't follow the growers reports because there are few ATP members that garden in my area and the information reported isn't valuable to me.

I do read through the recent threads quite often and find things of interest.

In a way, I think of it as kind of prioritizing what shows up first on the home page.

Yes, being able to customize the homepage has long been on my wishlist of things to do and I could probably get to it sooner rather than later.
