    No option for this year in Reports at BeFree
    The reports don't have a 2005 option yet.

    Someone dropped the ball big time on this. Actually, more than just some ONE. How can a technology company forget to adjust your system for a new year??? Geez!

    Michael,

    I think the bfast app always runs a day late. If I remember correctly, the same thing happened last year, and the 2005 shows up on Jan. 2nd. It was a year ago, so I may be wrong. Happens each month for one day as well.

    You're right that some of the reports run the following day, but not all of them do. Merchants who report in real time are listed through BeFree within an hour of receiving the data from the merchant.

    The year 2005 isn't even in the dropdown, so they've definitely dropped the ball here.

    Well at least we can still see whether we've made any sales or not - only thing is we don't know what they are! Oh well, hopefully they have already realised it and are doing something to fix it.

    Someone needs to run down to Sesame Street to get a 5.

    I suspect that the dates are hard coded, and that we will have a mysterious downtime before the 2005 appears.

    Still not fixed... I don't get it... I also never got my check that was mailed on December 9th from BeFree. Anyone have a tip on how to get a hold of someone to get another check sent out? Do they respond to e-mails?

    It was fixed yesterday and now it's gone again. Can we please get someone who knows what they're doing?

    I guess this (and the slew of merchants moving to other networks) shows what priority BeFree has in the CJ network. It's really quite sad for me, since BeFree was my favorite network until the CJ merger.

    Since it appears that this is a recurring problem that we'll be posting about every year (assuming BeFree survives another year), I've changed the title of this thread.

    I wish they would go ahead and just bump the remaining merchants on BF on over to CJ, get it over with. I thought the migration would be a little quicker.

    I'm actually surprised at how quickly some of them have moved over. it's a major deal for some, especially the old-school.

    As expected, it's becoming more and more of a wasteland which should help encourage the others to move.

    Yeah, hopefully they all get on over this year and just put BF to bed. Or just hold out a little longer until a new to the U.S. big brand network starts and give them a jumpstart. I think I like that idea better

    You can run reports in BFAST for 2006. Users just have to clear their cache in Mozilla or clear their temporary files in IE to see 2006 in the dropdown menu.

    I beg to differ, but things are not fixed.

    Here's what I just tested:

    1) Open Mozilla Firefox.
    2) Cleared everything: History, Cookies, Cache, etc.
    3) Went to https://affiliates.befree.com/Affiliates/index.jsp
    4) Logged in.
    5) Clicked on "Site Reports".

    Both "From" and "to" only have 1997-2005 as options.

    They may be fixed in some areas, but this is the only reporting I use.

    Just checked again, after I could see 2006 this morning, now I can not. Definately NOT a cache issue.

    No 2006 for me either. Can run a daily report for today but that's about it.
