Yes mine has. Also, the weekly report is showing number of "Views" now instead of number of "Quotes" sent.

Re: Changes Do Not Seem to Help the Pro—only Thumbtack

@edservices  hit the nail on the head.  Top Pro here, for the month of January TT accounted for 12% of my business, dollarwise. two out of nine clients. Two years ago, 2017 TT accounted for 68% of my business, 64 out of 75 clients. The present system does not work for me at all; clients choosing pros, clients scheduling pros.....don't these people realize we're booked out 2 months??  I perform part time electrical work, picking clients is tantemount to me...I do not work around other's schedule.

The "what's your estimate?" crap is absurd, they don't list a scope of work...you can't provide an estimate without multiple inputs of information. I do not respond to those requests. As for Promote??  no thanks, I like my money, I'll keep it.  There are other available avenues for soliciting work...TT has simply become a costly version of Yelp/Google

I have been a top pro for a few years and thumbtack used to be app 75% of my new business.
No longer. Since the changes, business from here is almost non existent. I have had only 6 leads in Feb. and none since the 9th. I used to respond to 30 to 40 per month.
I now have no interaction with any possible clients and no control. I now have to take my $ to yelp and other venues. This is a shame because thumbtack used to be my bread and butter. I would think that they would want to cater to their pros and do more advertising to gain more users. What is going wrong with this new platform?
