A lil’ ditty ’bout location timestamps.
Ever wondered when a location was last updated? Like, is the machine list possibly old and stale? Or is it new and fresh? Well wonder no more! Now each location has a timestamp that shows when it was last updated. The timestamp is automatically updated when machines are added/removed from the location, and when machine comments are made.
There’s also a button so that you can click with either your mouse or your finger (if you’re on a touchscreen) to confirm that the machine list is up to date. So, even if you don’t have an update to make, but you know the machine list is current, then you can click it and feel good about your good self.
We’ll roll out this feature to the app in a bit. For now it’s just on the web. And if a location hasn’t been updated since we added this to the website, then the timestamp isn’t there.
Here’s an example of it in action: Bierstube on the Twin Cities Pinball Map was last updated on October 8, 2015.
Take care, everyone.
