I think there is an opportunity for GS to look into some coding inefficiency. I just recently purchased the iMac 2017 with the fastest processor available (4.2 GHz Intel Core i7), 32mb of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. GarageSale response time has improved to almost instantaneous with two exceptions. I think this might point out some potential coding issues that might be slowing down program response time, especially for those users with older computers.
As some background, I have been using GS for at over 4 years and have over 20,000 listings in the database. Running GS 7.0.7 (795) and macOS Sierra V10.12.6
1). After selecting groups of listings (typically 250-400) and then choosing the ‘Select All’ option in the ‘Preview Mode’ there is a significant pause. It is interesting that if you switch to the ‘Live’ mode, the ‘Select All’ option is instantaneous. Of course, to make listing changes to all the items selected, you must be in ‘Preview Mode’
2). Using the above selection and subsequently choosing to schedule the listings with GS scheduler, the duplicate previously listed item function and move to trash essentially uses all the resources of the computer (i.e. spinning wheel) and takes longer to complete considering the processing power of the computer. This is a major disappointment as I list 15,000+ items a month.
2a). Regarding #2, as reported about 18 months ago, there is no option when using the GS scheduler to specify the eBay account to use. We list in 4 eBay accounts, so if the listings are not in the default account, the verify function in the scheduler shows an error for every listing. This is not the case when listing groups without using the scheduler since there is a dropdown box to specify which eBay account is to be used.
Again, overall GS is working terrific. These two areas should be looked at in order to ensure the best possible experience for the user.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
