Takeoff Tuesday: Brand Based List Menu
We are making it easier to answer your favorite types of questions
Its simple. Some people love cars, but really love german cars. Some people want to answer questions about computers and cell phones, but really love Apple products.
1. Picking Favorite Categories and Brands
When you see a list of questions, it’s natural to want to see only questions relevant to you. So a few weeks ago, we embarked on a journey to make that happen. With a new left menu for question answering, you now have more control over what categories and brands you choose.
Similar to picking your favorite categories, you now have a similar option pick favorite brands within those categories.
2. Filtering by Category, Brand, and Family
Clicking on a single brand or category (or All Unsolved) brings you to the list of questions pertaining to that selection.
Once you see a list, of questions, you can filter it based on your favorited brands individually or in a group, or of any brand from the “All Brands” list. From there, you can add any brand to your “My Brands” list.
This left navigation allows users to filter the questions based on all your brands or just specific brands. You can now filter by family too–say you only want to see Ford trucks–clicking the + by the brand name opens a tree of the family lines.
You can still return to the “Choose Brands” or “Choose Categories” by simply clicking on the blue header called “All Brands” or “All Categories”. Clicking the blue header “My Brands” or “My Categories” allows you to see a list of just your chosen brands or your chosen categories.
