    LinkShare - New or Old Publisher Dashboard???
    I just wondering why LinkShare still offers two version of their Publisher Dashboard??

    I know I still use the old version since I find the reporting in the new version to be way off. If I log onto the new version it shows about 1/2 of the sales for the current month then the old version.

    Just wondering what version you use??? I guess most use the old version since they still have it available.

    I use the new interface for links and still use the old interface for just about everything else.

    I use both.

    The old one for reporting, the new one for setting up links etc. and some reporting

    Reason:
    I found working with an AM, while using the old interface and trying to follow her instruction on how to setup/use some of their features were just not accessible from the old interface.

    The AM was surprised I was using the old interface. I did leave her a note saying she may want to take into consideration not everybody is using the new interface when she is giving advice/instruction and to ask that that before getting to deep in helping someone. Would have saved about 2 days of emailing back and forth!

    Hear that AMs? Ask your affiliates what interface they are using. It may cut down on user support times.
    And Affiliate, I suggest getting familiar with the new interface because most likely that is what the AM is using.

    I use the New LS for most linking. I really like the deep linking tool. The only problem is that the new system (maybe I'm not seeing it) doesn't have any video links. The old system still does.

    I use the old system for reporting.
    The new system is out of the stone age in functionality and speed. I'm not sure why LS hasn't fixed this issue.

    At this time, BOTH. Until LS makes some changes and improves functionality to the items we all addressed above, I will have to use both dashboards.

    I use the old for reporting because it is faster and more up to date. But, all day today, every time I try to run the report I get a dead page.

    Failed to Connect

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at areport.linksynergy.com.

    Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

    * Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.
    Anybody else having this problem?

    I get the following message when trying to run reports in the old system:

    Connection Interrupted

    The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.







    The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.
