A thing that a buyer noted me: They get the Email Notification that a file was updated… but they get that email without the specifics of the update. And if they visit the product page before the author writes the update log, they still don’t see what’s changed.
The author needs to be fast on writing that update log after approval, or maybe write the update log before the update gets approved. Hm.

Regardless of a buyer opts for notification or not, we need an update info submitted whenever the source package modified. It can be even a pre-made dropdown field with just 3 choices:

- Added new features
- Bugs fixed
- Help document updated

So one of the selected reason can appear near the item download button. This will easily help the buyer to make a decision. But wait, this is too much for a typical Envato staff to grasp and implement isn’t it? pity that staffs aren’t in harmony with their business.

It’s OK to have an opinion and express a desire for us to continue to enhance and improve the Marketplaces, but please don’t attack the Staff personally and say they don’t care. We’ve already introduced several new features this year and we’re busy on adding more. We care very much about improving the functionality of the sites. Thanks!

I agree. I think this feature alone is really great. I don’t like relying on my own bandwidth to create update notifications to my customers and now this is starting to solve that problem. Hats off to the team!

No doubt, improvements happen continuously here recently, that’s welcome. The reason for such grumpy complaint is improvements being “so basic” and doesn’t justify the growth of marketplaces (after years of long wait too). I better speak with numbers so that it wont be subjective: This is a only improvement happened in item update and item download section from the days when total marketplace members were less than 100k and now more than 2500k.

There is no special care / features that focused on TF and CC marketplaces where the updates are key. ThemeForest has items that makes like 200 sales per week – guess the number of buyers who can be benefited by single line info on downloads page and the notification email.

This will be implemented to AudioJungle items too ? It would be nice if I for instance remaster, remix or add a variation to a song to be able to notify people who bought my songs.

Very nice, this will certainly help cut down on the “How Do I Get The New Update” questions …

Thanks Guys :)
