Product Update: A new look for your Inbox!

We’ve just updated the design to make the Inbox cleaner and more visually appealing.

This redesign gives us a strong foundation for making upgrades to the Inbox in the future. While we haven’t changed or added any major features with this launch, we always appreciate your feedback on which ones you’d like to see next. Enjoy!

  1. Have you removed the feature of counter-offering dates to a request? I liked that, i,e, Traveler requests to stay Jan 1-4, but I offer only Jan 3-4

  2. I would like to suggest you to add a “read” or “double check” mark to messages on the Inbox. I understand the privacy concerns, but sometimes you don’t know if your potential host/guest have read your messages and that feature would help to have a more fluid communication between both parties (and less misunderstandings).
    I also miss the profile customization you had in the old days. While I think you won’t allow that again, maybe you could add a Flag Counter so you could know where the visitors to your profile are from. Thanks a lot!

  3. The knock on effect of how long it takes to read profiles means people don’t send personal requests any more which affects the quality of everything.
    In 2007 they had a real big focus on online time vs real life connections, and that is the one thing would be really wonderful to bring back.

  4. The profiles on mobile need to be seriously looked at. How many people honestly travel with pets, children, or the main concern is if smoking is allowed? All this info should be scrapped. Give hosts the choice of what to say, don’t force them to fill their profiles with strange forms. I just want the website to be fast to use, not having to scroll constantly to see the real personality in CSers profiles. I’m trying to couchsurf here but I just end up staying in hostels because searching is tedious. A high res mobile screen should fit a BUNCH of personalised info on the first screen, not require pages down.
