I have not been picking up too many shops with them. While reporting one of their shops, I can report two shops for other companies. If they put more than one question on a screen like it used to be, it would go a whole lot faster. I've complained to the Help Desk - no one cares.
It has been hit and miss for me while reporting. Last week it was so slow that I was pulling my hair out but this week the site has been moving quicker. I don't know if there are a lot of shoppers on the site at the same time trying to get their shops in before the 8 hours deadline. When I am reporting around 8 or 9 at night the site is really bogged down.
8 or 9 would have been about the time I was reporting last night because we came home, I made coffee and we had coffee and cake while watching Jeopardy. Jeopardy ends at 8. I answered a couple of emails while scanning my receipt so it probably was 8:20-8:30 when I started doing the report. I was back to answering family emails well before 9 PM. Certainly page turns were not instantaneous, but they probably weren't more than 5-10 seconds at worst.
I dunno. I am using Firefox 42.0 on a high speed internet with a booster so I can get a signal out to my backporch 'office', on an older laptop that is still on Win 7 because I haven't fully reconfigured my new Win 10 laptop. But I was reporting Fast Casual rather than the 2-part wonder.
We are paid to be observers, right? At 7:32 PM I began logging on to MF to report this evening's FC. I completed the report, did the uploads, checked that previous shops had moved on to 'Approved' and logged out at 7:55 PM. During that 23 minutes I dealt with the issue that it can't be "Fresh" if it isn't "Excellent", walked across the house to pick up the receipt that I forgot and left in the scanner, poured myself another cup of coffee, and had the warning pop up when I uploaded the receipt that it was too big a file. A quick check of the Receipts/CPI showed it had uploaded just fine. So sign off on the CPI and submit. Scan the completed shop list for any problems and logged out.
I did reports last night with no problem. Also, I uploaded large sized photos of my receipts and was pleased to see that they resize them for you. Not sure if this is a new feature but it saved me the time of having to resize the receipts myself before uploading them.
