If anything, it’s made things more difficult for me.
I don’t always get to submit the readings on the day I take them. The readings I Took on the 1st of Feb went to waste, because I didn’t get a response. Submitting them 5 days later is no good, because that will just screw up the future estimated readings you generate for me.
I’ve done it again, taken a reading on the 15th but couldn’t submit until now. I don’t want that reading to be logged as the 16th - luckily I can log it today so it’s not too far out, but often I can’t log it for a few days.
I really don’t see the point in removing that feature if it wasn’t causing problems and was used by members.
I think you should put a little more faith in users, and put a text box explaining what the obvious dropdown was for, if you think it was confusing people.
What is going to create confusion, is the new text box to enter a number after the decimal point. My electricity meter doesn’t have a decimal number, but I know to enter 0. I can’t imagine everyone would know that though. Especially when your own helpful hints say to ignore that number when reading, yet you ask for it when entering.
