My Yahoo

To our loyal users of My Yahoo,

Our goal for My Yahoo is to give you a way to organize the web around your diverse set of interests. Your passion for My Yahoo inspires us to work hard to make it better everyday, and we’re just getting started. We’ve seen — and heard — the impassioned response about the revamped My Yahoo. You’ve shared lots of great feedback, and we want you to know we’re doing more than just listening. Here’s an update on your most popular requests:

  • Scoreboard app (Oct 31, update) – The My Teams feature is now available (it includes the teams you were following before migrating to the new My Yahoo).
  • Movies and In Theatres (Oct 31, update) – The “In Theatres” app (previously known as the Movies app) now allows you to save your favorite theatres by location (your settings from the old My Yahoo will also be transferred to the new app)
  • My Portfolio app (Oct 9, update) – You are now able to see multiple portfolios at once by clicking on the All Portfolios drop down.
  • Weather Location (Dec 20, update) – You are now able to save Multiple Locations using the location picker on the Weather app. To save multiple locations, use the star icon within the location picker located on the top right of the Weather app.
  • Font Size and Compact view for News (Dec 20, update) – You are now able to re-size font of your My Yahoo page by selecting your preferred one on the main Edit Layout button and to choose a compact or full view for your news modules using the Edit Settings button on the cog wheel.
  • Today app (Feb 2, update) – You are now able to add “Today” app to your customized page. Find it in the Add Content section.
  • Portfolio (Feb 5, update) – The My Portfolio app has been enhanced to support totals now. You can also choose to Show/Hide it for all Portfolios.
  • Bookmarks (Feb 14, update) – You can now access all of your bookmarks without browsing through folders. Click the “All” section in the drop-down and view all your folders/bookmarks together.
  • Calendar (Feb 14, update) – All of your daily calendar appointments will now automatically appear together in a list making it more convenient to plan your daily routine.
  • Portfolio (Apr 7, update) – The My Portfolio widget has been updated to reflect both news and stock charts. You can hover over the ticker symbols in your portfolio to review the same.

We’ll continue to keep you up to date in this forum… and we’re not done yet – more improvements are on the way. So keep the feedback coming!

Thanks to each and every one of you.

Sincerely,

The My Yahoo Team

  1. Bring back the old version.

    Bring back the old version. There was nothing wrong with it. This one has so many big boxes that you can't even concentrate on the writing. All those things you are bringing back in this format are still lost. Just bring back the old one.
    Why does the weather keep changing from your town to the whole state? I can't even figure out what my weather is. I have to keep looking for where it moved to.
    Why can't I choose what I want on top? I added some news and you put it over the weather. I had to…

      Hi all,

      We appreciate all the feedback we’ve received thus far regarding the new My Yahoo layout and features, and we’re constantly working on improving our modules and settings, along with site stability.

      We’d love to hear more feedback about the design changes you’re seeing. Instead of posting new ideas regarding switching back, feel free to continue posting comments here with any additional feedback.

      Thanks for using My Yahoo!

    • Fix the weather app. Why does it show a location I know nothing about when I keep entering my city.

      Only show the cities I select. Right now I get an unknown location. When I change it to my city, go check my mail, and return to the weather, my city is gone.

      • ca.my.yahoo Being shut down

        So everyone is now using the canadian site so they can get to their original my webpage. Now the aholes at yahoo are going to shut that down in order to show what a vengeful bunch of aholes they are. This is really unbelievable. Shows their true colors.

        • Epic FAIL, Yahoo. Can't access the apps "not yet supported", which is the only reason I had you as my home page.

          Why don't you guys actually look at what people are using and make sure they work before you update something simply for the sake of an arbitrary deadline and trying to be 'new'?? Your USERS aren't holding you to a deadline, they are trying to USE their features. Make sure you tell your stockholders that the stock TANKED today because the USERS hate the arbitrary changes and it is now USE-LESS.

                • Limited and poor theme choices

                  For years, I had a soft background of Golden Retrievers. The new Yahoo has very few theme choices, and I have yet to find one that doesn't make my eyes bleed. Really visually distracting - please offer an option to return to the old Yahoo!!

                      • My Yahoo! Calendar is completely out of order.

                        Your recent "improvements" to My Yahoo have been a nightmare. First, the calendar would only display one item at a time. Then you got it to show an entire day at a time. Now you've restored it to seven days at a time (thank you very much), but the days are not in order. At this moment (on April 4), my calendar shows my April meetings in the following order:
                        April 7, April 6, April 9, April 8, April 10, April 5.
                        Great, just great!
                        It is bad enough that I can no longer delete an item directly from the…

                                    I have used "My Yahoo" as my home page for many years. You recently took away my familiar format and ruined My Yahoo in the USA, so I switched to the Canadian version which allowed me to have my preferred original format. Well, last week you cancelled the Canadian My Yahoo so I moved again ... to the UK version ... which thankfully allowed me to have my preferred original familiar format even though the news content was more UK oriented. I am now very angry because now I see that you plan to eliminate the UK version on March…
