Posted on September 23, 2019 at 12:50pm 22 Comments

I always went to upcoming months on calendar to see upcoming applications due highlighted in red, now I see maybe 8 in a month.  Very difficult , impossible in fact.  Larry, can you  help?  or anyone?

how are other people faring with this new format?

Would appreciate any feedback, thanks.

Laura, how did the Charlotte show go for you? Sorry I did not get to come and find/meet you, but I was showing alone, so impossible to get away from my space.
