Welcome to this week in AGvisorPRO. Our weekly roundup of featured questions, experts, content, updates, announcements, and more.

Top Question of the Week:

This week’s top question comes from a farmer in Southern Alberta who shared an image looking to identify something that may haunt your dreams. Here’s what the farmer asked:

“Can anyone identify what this is? Has anyone seen one of these before?”

What's Coming Next?

This week marks the release of the “notification centre,” coming at the end of this week.

Notifications are something we knew we needed to fix for quite some time. In the past, important notifications such as question replies, private messages, reviews, and insights were missed or not present. We are changing that with the new notification centre that will keep you in the know.

For users, this means quick access to expert replies, reminders to leave your expert a review, and more options to make sure your booking with an expert is seamless.

For experts, this means you will understand how your responses are performing, who finds your replies helpful, and ensure you’re getting those reviews to build your brand in our network.

Update your app this weekend to experience the new notification centre, and never miss a beat!
