Early December 2018

You have been a patient bunch waiting for this update. Let's dig right in!

What's New:

  • Downgrade Sites - Cancelling a subscription is now a easy and simple process of pressing buttons on the screen. Winning.
  • Add Users - You can now add users to your company, change their access levels and assign them to different sites.
  • Search Filters - You've searched for a waste site.  There are hundreds, now you can filter them.  Press Filters tab at the top of the search screen and see how you get on.  Anything else you want to filter against?
  • Major Updated Compliance Search - The compliance search algorithm has had a major overhaul. It now gives much better matches when searching complex terms. There is also now the ability to search for exact matches.  Look at the difference between searching for Engine Coolant and "Engine Coolant" (the quotes are the way to find exact matches!).
  • Updated Unclaimed Site Pages - This page was not a helpful introduction to Dsposal.  The text was confused, the buttons were all over the place and new users seemed to find themselves pressing the wrong buttons. This is now a lot cleaner and tidier.

Bug Fixes:

  • Audit Licence Dates - We crushed a bug that stopped the licences for installations and operations being populated in the duty of care audit document.
  • Quote or Enquiry - After months or user tests we released you like to send quotes and not enquiries.
  • Document Table Dates - The dates in the document table were not dates but strings, this meant chaos reigned supreme whilst ordering then. We put energy in to decrease the entropy(second law of thermodynamics!).
  • Date Picker Neaten - Picking a date used to mean you lost sight of the input box.  No more as this bug was fixed.
  • Various under the hood tweaks and improvements (including a speed boost to the dashboard).

 

Mid October 2018

Two updates in a month! This was pushed for release on the 18th October

What's New:

  • Dsposal's Waste Duty of Care Audit Document - This is a huge update and helps all organisations check that their waste management contractors are licensed and legal. Read the document article Dsposal’s Duty of Care Audit Document and try it out for yourself in Documents in your Dashboard.
  • Licences, Insurances and Certificates is now Documents - As we have added the Duty of Care Audit into the licences, insurances and certificates section we thought it needed a more fitting name.

Bug Fixes:

  • Licence Boxes were Dark Grey - We pressed the wrong button and turned all the licence documentation boxes a dark grey colour. We didn't spot it because we are always logged in. You see it only happened to new users!! Thanks for spotting this one and letting us know.

 

Early October 2018

Everything is a work in progress. Check out our progress below that we pushed live on the 5th October 2018. 

What’s New:

  • Manage Payment Cards  – When you upgrade and pay for Dsposal you now have access to your payment card details. Head to the Dashboard and there in the menu you'll see "Subscription & Payment".
  • Nice and Tidy Maps - We've changed the look of the pins on the map and added some code to cluster those pins when zooming out.
  • Search Nudge - Our waste thesaurus doesn't have all the answers but it should help you out when you out smart it.  It should therefore now it does!
  • Error Pages - Some times things get moved on websites and an error message will appear. We tidied it up so that it looks less like a dictionary vomited on the screen.
  • Showcase Affiliates - Our home page now let's everybody know who we align ourselves with.
  • Press Coverage - Being a new green tech startup gets us loads of press, so we added links to our homepage.

Bug Fixes:

  • Metadata Search - Being found on external search engines is important.  So we fixed a slight bug to make it easier for us to rank higher.
  • HWRC or Limited - A frustrating little bug meant that the map listing map and the standard listing page showed different tags for recycling centres.  They are aligned now and confusion has been beaten once again!
  • Various under the hood tweaks and improvements.

 

Early September 2018 

Here we go again with the improvements. Here are the items we released on the 6th September 2018. 

What’s New:

  • Enhanced Notifications  – Get Trash Talk Notifications straight to your inbox.
  • Buttons look like buttons – We ran an experiment to see what our buttons should look like. Can you spot the difference?
  • Loading Icons  – So, here's the thing, when a button is pressed and nothing happens then questions start racing through your head. Is it broken? Is it loading? Should I press it again? Did I not press it properly? Our new buttons now let you know when they have been pressed. Thank you for pointing this one out to us.
  • Dashboard Sites - The Sites section got a lick of paint this time round. It's easier to tell which sites are pending verification, which sites are licensed waste sites and which are unlicensed non-waste sites.
  • Map and Tiles - Search for waste company, click a tile, see where it is on the map. Neat! (Doesn't work for unclaimed sites).
  • Phone Number - Phone number is now a link so you can phone the site you are viewing.
  • Logos - You can have a moving logo - just upload a gif file and away you go. This is ours on a test profile.

Bug Fixes:

  • Home Page Search - Searching for waste companies is pretty much our core function. Some of you couldn't do this. That was an issue. It is no longer an issue.
  • Claiming a Site - We had an issue with claiming a site. You probably didn't notice it but it drove us up the wall. We are now driving up a different wall.
  • Various under the hood tweaks and improvements.

 

Mid July 2018 

Another sprint, another list of new features. Here are the items we released on the 23rd July 2018. 

What’s New:

  • Waste Profiles Visible Everywhere – You asked, so we delivered.  Site profiles are now viewable on the national stage.
  • Documents – If you are responsible for managing a waste profile you can now add your licences, insurances and certificates to your profiles.
  • Upload Logos – As a waste company you can now add your own branding with your logo!!!
  • Updated Registration Page - Confirm your email, then your password.  Plus there's now a handy tool for letting you know how strong your password is.

Bug Fixes:

  • Sites Tab - Some of our users couldn't see the sites tab; that has been fixed.  Bug be gone!
  • Various under the hood tweaks and improvements.

 

Early July 2018 

This awesome release was pushed on 2nd July 2018.

What’s New:

  • Services – You have been asking for a while and now we are able to deliver the new Services feature for site profiles.
  • Articles – Call it a blog or news but we have one. We will write content to keep you updated about all things Dsposal. There are a handful there now but over the coming weeks and months we are going to keep adding to it so keep coming back. Head over to the Dsposal articles section here.
  • Updated Help Section – A fresh lick of paint on the help section makes it easier to find the answer to that burning question. What do you think of this new help section?
  • EWC Code Navigation Improvement – EWC Codes are hard enough without the added issue of being hard to navigate. Thankfully you let us know that a breadcrumb would help you find the right code for that rubbish you want to get rid of.
  • Claim a Site – Users can now claim their waste licence and create a site profile.
  • Updated Pricing Page – Quick paint job to help you understand the different pricing levels that Dsposal offers. You really should take a quick look at this page.

Bug Fixes:

  • Smaller Screen Size Tweak – On 4” smartphones we were struggling with the Register and Login menu. No more.
  • Names are now links – At long last we fixed the bug that stopped the site profile names being a link to that site. Wonder at the easy to check out waste sites. Various under the hood tweaks and improvements.

 

A huge thank you to all those users that let us know. These updates and improvements wouldn’t be possible without your feedback. If you run into any issues or have any suggestions, please let us know
