@missannienow that's great to hear. I'm happy that those changes we made yesterday have appeared to make a difference. To adjust your settings to not see one time cleanings be sure to visit this part of your preferences: https://www.thumbtack.com/services/bWHYBElfP5E:nw/Ef:ZOOYOXFaD2A/job-preferences/
From there find "Which cleaning frequencies work for you?", and you can choose once, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
So I've sceenshot the whole INSTANT MATCH page.. aand GUESS WHAT? It DOES keep turning on,,,, every time the page refreshes in RESOURCES TAB, the INSTANT MATCH TURNS BACK ON. I've watched this happen now 5 times CONSISTANTLY.. I have NEVER used the feature, yet it is now currently ON AGAIN, EVEN THOUGH I'VE TURNED IT OFF 5 TIMES NOW.
So YES, MISS ANNIE, you are correct that it keeps turning back on. I don't know what game TT is playing or if there's a glitch in their system.. I'd prefer that it was the latter.. but THIS HAS TO BE FIXED. Because IF a PRO doesn't USE INSTANT MATCH , but it is secretly turned ON, it seems the Pro isn't getting the proper requests, or else NON AT ALL.
There is SO much that is wrong with TT at this point and I'm thinking that they're not really taking the Pros complaints seriously because they have some sort of agenda.. I'm not sure WHAT that is, except to make as much money as possible on as many of the 15 quotes they allow per request. I can't see ANY other way around this conclusion.
TT has become SUCH a disappointment, where it used to be a fun and great way to find jobs. I've been sent requests recently that I would have GLADLY bid on; as many as 15, which TT would have made money on by my quote purchase. But they aren't going to make ANY money from me now. I refuse to quote until the system is fixed and I hope OTHER TOP PROS boycott as well. TT NEEDS to listen to their PROS; I think their reputation will suffer and IS suffering if they don't.
@studio656west I double checked your account and see you've only ever sent custom quotes. Instant Match has never been turned on. Can you send me screenshots in a private message? I'd like to see what you're seeing so we can figure this out.
Oh goodness! I was beginning to think I have a screw loose. I KNOW I kept turning it off and I KNOW it turned itself back on. I think this kind of stuff is awful.
By the way, the 2 requests I got were for one time only cleanings. Not my cup of tea and a waste of my time. I cannot count on getting enough of those jobs to stay afloat. And these were the ONLY house cleaning requests I have gotten in at least SIX months! No one at TT has been able to explain why this is so. And that concerns me.
I honestly get the feeling that something is going on with TT that we wont know about until something drastic happens. There has to a be a reason why they made all these goofy, insane changes that have only hurt the pros that have supported them all along. I am sure it is something financial. And that is okay but at the very least, they could be honest with us! If they are going under, we should know so we can make our own changes.
I totally agree I cannot imagine what these people were thinking. To change the price so much it is like four times what it used to be. They must be insane because I am just about not using them anymore and I understand that a lot of people are not using them anymore.
