Current status in Genealogy in Suggestion Box

about 1 year ago

No one is suggesting you can't have a different opinion. I welcome and encourage everyone's feedback in fact.

But we don't agree that it worked well, and that's why the change was needed. There were multiple problems with it that needed to be addressed in order to produce optimal results for everyone.

We're constantly told to, "Do something, make SFI better, make SFI make us more money!" Well, that's exactly what this rule change is intended to do. The fact is, it is human nature to procrastinate, to wait 'til the last minute, to always take the path of least resistance. These are all negatives and the antithesis to building a successful business. We need to change that and get our affiliates more engaged and doing the things that will make them more successful. I expect you will be pleasantly surprised soon.

Yes, there should be changes, I agree with you. The fact is that for so many reasons I can not confirm status ( and I guess there is a lot of affiliates like me) not because I am waiting 'til last minute or taking the path of least resistance. More than anything I would really like to be surprised and admit I am wrong.

Mr. Gery, I said I would really like to be surprised and I am! First, I complained the most because Genealogy, and the old Genealogy is back!!! Thank you so much! I hope it will stay like that! Second Executive Affiliate rank upgrade! That I call great news and great change! I think a lot of affiliates will stay longer in SFI, and will not quit without giving this great opportunity a chance!
Thank you again!!!

Would it be possible to put another column in the genealogy that shows highest rank achieved last month? There is a Versa Points tab that allows you to sort by Versa Points last month. Maybe the column could be put there.

Would this help Gordana?


Hi Scott,

We can already see on Reassign tab in Genealogy the previous rank of our Affiliates, maybe to add the same one on the Basics tab?



That isn't the previous month Gordana. That is their highest previous rank ever achieved, whenever it might have happened.


Hi Scot,

I am Zagorka your downline and yes your are right, then we could use this and create something similar on Basics tab like LMR (Last Rank Month) or PMR (Previous Rank Month)

Thank you Zagorka for support. That would be great!
Best regards!

Booster, Badge Status and VP in Ask Gery #VersaPoints

about 1 year ago

I agree with Sanja! Great post! $36 i a lot of money from someone from my country too. If Booster is a bit cheaper more people would decide to invest in their business and become TL. Gery said that there will more be changes soon , I hope they will have impact on easier start for new members so they stay in SFI , and in that way there will be less inactive members. I think we would all like that.

Best regards!

I checked with my IT Director. We're displaying current status, as it should.

How is it not transparent to show what the person's actual status is? That's what you should want to know! What's NOT transparent is how we used to do it, showing people as having a rank for up to an entire month that they had not yet achieved.

Please refer to our January 23rd announcement:

news.sfimg.com/2017/01/23/change-to-grace-period-on-rank/

I read that announcement and I still disagree with you. Sorry but I have every right to say my opinion. The system you had worked well, why change it? My Genealogy is big, and now when I look at it I can not see last month status. Most of my affiliates are only AFF now because they can not confirm status in first part of month (I am not talking only about my 1.generation ) I don't know which affiliates were EA, BTL, STL...how much they need to confirm status. ( I know that I can see their VP Ledger, and I know where I can find last month VP but for me it is not easier to check everyone individually) I also haven't confirmed my status, so now when I advertise, my new members only can see that I am Aff as they are, there is no difference. Will they stay long enough to see that I am STL? Why am I being punished just because I haven't confirmed status until 10th of the month ( and for me it is impossible to confirm it until then! )
Best regards!

Then you can calculate last month on affiliates profile



Notice that it gives last months VP!

William, I am not new in this, I am STL , and I know how things work here, and where I have information for each affiliate no need to post picture, and write those comments. For every change in SFI all of us has right to say opinion and guess Gery expect of us to do so To bad you like this news in Genealogy, guess it will not stay for long, it wasn't the

You're assuming we changed this on purpose. We did not. I'll see what we can do to resolve.

Yes I thought that you did it on purpose. If that wasn't your intention than ok.

The same as it was before - Achieved status from last month. That system worked OK, I don't see why you changed it. Everyone can calculate current status when they see VP in this month.

Sorry but it doesn't help if you have big Genealogy. I don't want to go from affiliate to affiliate thru my all generations and check their VP Ledger, it is to complicated and it takes a lot of time. I don't like this change. For our badge also. I don't see the point of this.

Hi, I just saw my Genealogy and have to say that I really don't like that I can see only current status of my affiliates! It's not transparent and it is difficult to monitor their progress compared to last month.
Thank you.

First ( sign up ) page translation in Suggestion Box

over 2 years ago

Hello,
I want to ask whether it is possible to add language translation of the page for registration of new members? Many people don't know English and they may get confused when they see all those informations and they don't understand enything. I think that can be the reason that many of them just give up (it is easier) and not sign up.

Thank you.

Redesigned front-end pages for new affiliates debut in SFI News

over 2 years ago

Hi, everything looks great, but I have one question.
Is it possible to put the translation "button" on first page?
When someone click on my gateway and see that everything is in English, perhaps some of them will give up and not sign up because it seems too complicated, because , unfortunately , not everyone knows English.
All the best in New Year!
