A New QueryTracker is Coming – Sneak Peek

Well, it's that time again. The current version of QueryTracker has been up and running for over three years now, and that’s a long time for the technology world. Lot’s of things have changed about the Internet since then, and it is time for QueryTracker to adopt some of those changes.

But "change" isn't always good. And change for change's sake is never good. That's why a key requirement of the upgrade was to improve QT without changing things too much. Sure, there's a new look, but that's just cosmetic and I don't think it will take long for you to get used to that. 

In fact, most of the biggest changes are under the hood and out of site, such as improvements in speed. Some pages are loading up to ten times faster than the current version.

Another major area of focus was on convenience. Many of the operations regularly performed by members have been streamlined, making it quicker and easier to get things done. For instance, entering query information can now be done with almost half the number of clicks previously required.

But, instead of telling you all about it, here is a short video highlighting just a few of the improvements in QueryTracker version 4.

The new QueryTracker is expected to go live in late December. But before that, we’ll need some volunteers to use it for a few weeks to see how it goes. If you would like to sign up to be a beta tester for the new QT, please go to QueryTracker.net/contact.php and let us know. Beta testing should be starting near the beginning of December.

We'll be posting more updates here as we get closer to the release date.

Below are some screen captures of the new QT.

Managing multiple projects is now easier.
