Flexible dates only take a minute to create and increase the chance that your date will be seen and accepted.
When Todayte launched, our idea was to change the way people get a date online. Instead of emphasizing excessive chatting and profile searching, we put the focus on finding and planning specific dates. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and the app has grown steadily since we launched just a few months ago. But one user complaint kept surfacing. You told us that it was frustrating seeing a date you liked but being unable to attend at that specific time. Moreover, date planners told us that they didn't always have a specific time they preferred. Rather, they wanted the chance to post a date and let another user suggest when they would like to attend.
We listened to the feedback and responded with flexible dates. While we still allow users to plan dates at specific times, now we also offer the option to have one flexible date on the app. You can build a date you'd love to go on, and post it without a day and time specified. This is known as a "flexible date." This date can be built and edited from the expanded menu under "Edit Flexible Date." When searching for dates, flexible dates show up at the end of the search results with the date and time identified as "flexible."
When a user accepts a flexible date, rather than being locked into a specific time identified by the poster, they can provide the date and time they would like to go on the date. This is communicated back to the user who created the date and he or she can book the date for that time or pass on the offer.
This new feature stays true to our core values while allowing users the opportunity to more easily book dates. Specific dates are still the best way to find a companion for a concert, sporting event, or just a time when you know you're be free and excited to get together. Flexible dates are perfect for the place you're always up for going when you find the right person and you agree on the right time.
If you haven't already, log into Todayte now and build your flexible date. Let us know what you think of this new addition to the app and look for more improvements and new features in the weeks to come.
