I would like to be able to control what customers see when it does the automatic quotes. I want to see what they see rather than to have go login as a customer to see their view.
@karenlake You're right that there's no easy way to see what your instant quote looks like to a customer. That's definitely a good idea, and something we'll think about.
There is the option to take a look at your public profile and see the customer view for those cases where you send a normal quote. To do this log in, click profile, and then hit "view as customer" (desktop) or, "preview" (in app).
Thanks for your post, @Rainagmakeup!
You’ve worked hard to build a strong online presence, both on Thumbtack and off, and you want your customers to have everything they need to make a smart hiring decision. That’s why we’ve added the ability to link your social media right on your Thumbtack profile. To link social media, view your profile and scroll to “Social media”. From here, click Edit and add the full URL of your social media account.
We’ll also continue exploring ways to utilize and integrate your social media content. There's a lot of work to be done on this front! Keep sharing your ideas here in the Community.
Can there be more options under what payments accepted - like check and bank transfer (not sure what the proper term is when someone pays you through their banks bill pay system. )
I do think this has been said but it would be nice if there were a box similar to professional license that would be about certificates or degrees in that field. My field does not have professional licenses. Some people have no training on how to teach violin lessons but others such as myself do have training and educational certificates in the area.
Another thing would be an easy way to show if this is your living or full/time, part time or hobby. That would also be something that would need to be distinguished if the person actually doing the work does that work full time as a living or part time.
I wish that my profile could somehow bring people to me, giving them the ability to knock on my virutual door. I could then respond and let potential clients know if I am available to do the job. If I am available, we could then discuss price.
This makes sense. I do no think its right to be charged for a client that contacts me that I am not available to help anyway. Cleints put random dates on the form and check off all the time frames and then when I get them they have a specific date that does not fit in my availability.
