We've heard your feedback about bulk uploads and Google Base. Following both Ellen's post on the homepage redesign and Naureen's post about more frequent file uploads, we've released a redesigned bulk upload dashboard to help you better manage your bulk upload files.

New dashboard:

Previous dashboard:

The new dashboard provides plenty of useful data, all available at a glance. Most Base users have just one or two bulk upload files, so the old tabular display didn't make as much sense as the new display, which shows more information about each file in one place. Your bulk uploads are color-coded so you can easily spot the troublesome ones, and each bulk upload includes a descriptive status with quick links to useful information. On the right-hand side of the page, you'll also see additional service announcements, such as information about FTP uploading and multi-client accounts.

We hope these improvements make it easier to use Google Base. As always, please keep sending us your feedback. We are listening to and implementing your suggestions!
