Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hello beautiful Beauty Insider Community members! 

 

We’re starting this thread for you guys to report any issues and weird things that you are seeing or ask any questions. We have a number of issues logged that we are already working on a fix for, so this is a work in process.

 

Some things to note as you are reporting issues:

  • If you are looking for a thread and can’t find it, please post here. We’ll need to manually move some threads that got lost in the migration to their correct groups.
  • If you are reporting a bug please be specific about the issue you're seeing, how you got there (“I clicked here and it did *this*”), the device you're using and which browser you're in. 

 

Some tips:

  • If you are looking for a thread that you commented on in the old community, go to the front page of conversations and click the “My Posts” tab. This is where you will find all of your conversations activity, including your heart count.

 

It’s good to see you all and thanks for being patient!

 

Whenever reporting a bug we need as much info as possible or our tech team cannot reproduce the issue and verify it's actually occurring. If they can't see the issue they cannot fix it. You cannot overshare details, test on too many devices or share too many screenshots... The more detail the better!

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

A few issues @TeamBIC 

 

When I check the app and duckduckgo mobile website on Android phone, unless otherwise noted.

 

  1. Gallery--Only recently uploaded photos are showing. I see 0 old photos

  1. Gallery-- All hearts have reverted to 0 on the pics
  2. Over the last few years Sephora has contacted on Instagram "we would like to feature your photo etc..." but I never see it featured in the Trending gallery homepage when I reply with the hashtag
  3. Only on mobile browser--Replying to posts--when I select the emoticon menu it pops up for a second then disappears
  4. Email--Ongoing issue since 2021-- I still don't get email notification when someone @'s me. The notification only holds days at a time and I like to keep track of who needs to know how a product I'm trying performs in a specific thread. The email also keeps track of the posts I respond to. I have to jump through hundreds of pages but only 3 at a time. 1000037730.jpg

 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hi again @Buootiful! One of our tech partners was able to somewhat recreate the issue you were seeing with the emoticon menu on your mobile web browser. She is curious if you still see the issue if you click into the text box and start typing first, and then click to open the emoticon menu? 😮 She also ran into the menu disappearing when it was the first thing she clicked on. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hi @GeorginaBT ! It's been a crazy week, sorry for the late reply. I tried it now and I see no issues pulling up the emojis. Thanks, I think prob is fixed. I always type 1st then use the emojis when I post😁

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

I'm so glad to hear it @Buootiful!! 😃 Thanks for letting me know~

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hi @Buootiful, thanks for this feedback! 🙂 We have a list of open issues related to the re-introduction of Gallery, and some of what you're seeing about older uploads not appearing is known to us - you're not alone! 🙏 We'll look into the hearts reverting to 0.

 

Regarding your Gallery posts being pulled in from Instagram (#2), are you able to see any of them when you search your Instagram username on the Gallery homepage? 

 

We just alerted our Forum partners to the emoticon menu issue - how odd! Appreciate you letting us know about it. About the email notification issue, we're sorry that this is still affecting you. 😥 We've put out a fix for this but it's possible there is an issue with your email domain blocking the Community notifications. Not totally sure why they would have worked for you before and suddenly stopped working in 2021 - so sorry I can't give a better update at this time!

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Ah, I didnt think of that.😜 I searched and found  2 of the 3. Thank you,  @GeorginaBT 😘

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@Buootiful  @TeamBIC  seconding issues 1 and 3 here (also using app or mobile web via Firefox on Android). Also, I have tried uploading a few photos to the gallery over the past week or so, and none of them are showing up (it's been several days at least, in 2 cases).

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Thanks for letting us know @caitbird! We're looking into it with our tech partners. 🙏

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Any word on accessing our reviews?  I'd like to write more reviews but it's become to difficult to see what I've already reviewed.   Plus, I check my reviews to let me know what Q&As to check out to provide answers. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Not quite @greeneyedgirl107 - sorry to share a "no update" update! 😥 We miss the reviews page too; believe it or not, it'll be a pretty complex project for our tech partners, so we're bummed we had to get rid of it while we made improvements to other parts of Ratings & Reviews. We have a lot of Community improvements we want to make, and rest assured this is near the top of the list! 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT I appreciate the info!!!

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hello @KatieBT @DaneeBT @GeorginaBT. I’m running into an issue when trying to tag products while in the middle of uploading a photo to the gallery. I can upload my photo and easily tag items if they’re in my loves or recently purchased lists. If I have to search for some that isn’t in either list, when I go to select the correct colour/shade, I get something like this. 

 

IMG_4507.png

I can’t click OK or select or escape out of this drop down menu. I have to close the app, love the products I’m tagging first, then I can select it from that list instead. 

(I’m using a 2022 iPhone SE, running iOS 16.6 and Sephora 23.16.1.)

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Oops, thanks for noting this @JoSometimes! Just to clarify, you're not able to scroll through the list shown in your screenshot right? It looks like it is taking over your whole screen and that might be why you're unable to select anything ...

 

We'll let our tech partners know about this! 🙏

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT I can scroll through the list and select my desired shade but I can’t click OK or Select to confirm my selection or get out of the drop down if I mis-clicked or changed my mind. I’m assuming there’s a button that’s off-screen on my device. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hello @TeamBIC 

I just wanted to let you know I uploaded two photos to the gallery last weekend and they didn't upload to my gallery.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hi @Mellmars1185 I'm sorry to hear that! I'll send you a PM.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC I am having issues with my profile loading on the app. I like checking in on the app once in a while to see if I have access to see my reviews. Now it does not load at all. I get a circle that seems like it is loading but it never loads. I tried reinstalling the app but I still had the same issue.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hi @Mellmars1185 - uh oh! Very odd that reinstalling the app didn't solve this issue for you. I've let our tech partners know to look into this, thanks for flagging! 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT Another thing I noticed is that even though I am signed into the app, it is asking me to join Beauty Insider. It periodically shows I am signed in while asking me to join Beauty Insider.

*Edit* i am also unable to checkout on the app.i am getting this msg

Spoiler
 1000004720.jpg

It is odd because it shows my points but it says to join Beauty Insider. It also gives me the option to sign out. 

***Update*** I can sign in now but can't see deal of the day.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC I just wanted to mention that I noticed my gallery maxes out at 5 & 7 photos. My older pictures are no longer available as I post new ones. Is this a known issue?
