because i see 17 out of 20 publishers making NEGATIVE comments about this change which works out at 85 % who don't like it ( so far )

Not only is 20 publishers a tiny sample, but it's also a sample that's limited to members who think the new payment-history design is worth the bother of discussing. And let's face it: Forum members who are unhappy about something new are more likely to post than are people who like the change or don't give a hoot.

Also, there will always be people who resist change whether it's bad or good. This happens when magazines or newspapers change their layouts, for example.

(As for me, as long as the information is available, and as long as I can understand it, I don't especially care how it's presented.)

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I have a couple of suggestions:

1) PLEASE TOTAL THE COLUMNS
If I want to see how much I've earned or been paid during a given date range, I have to take out a calculator and do it, or download the CSV, stick it into a spreadsheet, sort it, insert a row and create a sum column.

2) PLEASE ADD ARBITRARY DATE RANGES
For the same reasons as above.

Why can't the pages inside the reports system have a consistent look and feel?

Could write our own in PHP and then write a adsense login curl script retrieve all the data we need then view it nicely on our servers :)

I like the new one better. (But I hardly ever look at that page anyway)

I find it confusing and makes me want to play Tetris.

Yep! We're excited about the new Payment History page and hope that it makes earnings and payment status information much easier to understand and keep track of.

ASA,

Old one, new one, all the same to me BUT one suggestion. Could you reverse the order of entry so November comes first and September last.

I only look to see if payment has been made, I really don't need to scroll down everytime.

The previous design was far simpler and much clearer.
It takes about 5 times as long to get the same information as it did before.

I'm curious--how many publishers spend time looking at the Payment History page, regardless of its format?

I probably wouldn't have noticed the change for months if I hadn't seen this thread, because with EFT, the payment simply shows up in my bank account.
