FarmVille Giftbox Updated Further!

Posted on May 3, 2011 10:06 am by FarmVille Freak Eva16

FarmVille Gift Box

Tonight, after an enhanced message, the FarmVille Giftbox was updated to be even more user-friendly.

You may recall that our Giftbox was upgraded with the Search & Sort feature. This evening, two new categories: Trees & Other, have been added to help sort items in our Giftbox further.

Also, another change has been made to the Giftbox. Now, when you re-open the Giftbox in the game, it will open at the point where it was when you closed it. (For example, if you were on page 2 of 7 when you close your Giftbox, and you re-open it later in the game, it will still remain on page 2 of 7).

Do you see these changes in your Giftbox yet?

    Yay! I just noticed this, and I love it.
    :D

  2. Susan Wade Says:

    Now THIS sounds like a good “enhancement” – hopefully it actually works like they said it’s supposed to….I’ll be very happy if it does.

  3. Justin Says:

    Thank God…Zynga is actually making things that make sense…now they need a USE ALL button for when we have 35 or 40 flowers, etc…

  4. Brittany Says:

    im still having issues with my storage, i havent been able to access for two weeks! anyone else with this issue??

  5. Blueroze Says:

    They need to do this with storage!

  6. sarah Says:

    GreAt…!!! :)

  7. Jane Says:

    It’s nice that they seem to be front-loading short-term and frequent use consumables again, too! (even the ones they have sorted as “decorations” like the spring flowers and mystery eggs)

  8. Lynn Says:

    They need to make it so we can “USE” the flowers like we use the bottles/cans.

  9. Kasandra Says:

    Wonderful! Less clicking!

  10. D Says:

    When the hell are they gonna have the animal feed use like the rest? Tired of having to wit for box to reopen to use. It should be like bottles, etc.

  11. vicki Says:

    I really like the new gift box, the categories make it much easy to find stuff….great idea!! I sure wished they would do something like this to the inventory (barn storage) area…Scrolling page after page is the pits and you cannot get to what you want, fast.

  12. Naomi Says:

    Now this is a welcome update! A “USE ALL” feature would be nice too.

  13. DORIS Says:

    I JUST WANT THEM TO FIX EVERYTHING ELSE FIRST BEFORE THEY ADD MORE TO IT….I AM ON THE QUEST WHERE YOU HAVE 2 HARVEST YOUR CHICKEN COOP’S 2 TIMES, WELL I HAVE DONE MINE 3 TMES NOW AND IT STILL SAY’S HARVEST CHICKENS 2 TIMES………..I PAID FV CASH TO GET ME THIS FAR ON THE QUEST AND NOW I CANT FINISH IT UNLESS I PAY FV CASH…. WELL I REFUSE TO DO THAT ANYMORE………..IT IS ALL ABOUT THE CASH

  14. SHERI JAMES Says:

    need more room in gift box i lost alot of gifts when i went over 700

  15. Mark W Says:

    Liking the way they sorted it so it opens on the last page you were on to save clicking/scrolling.

  16. LoL Says:

    Do people read comments posted before them…?

  17. cyndi Says:

    It’s about time……hated when it went back to beginning…noe they should let you put out more than one gift if you get 2 or more

  18. vickie Says:

    i thought this was going to be great. but it would be more helpful if it would just stay on the same “page” instead of searching. the way they have this set up would be most helpful in our storage.

  19. Michelle Says:

    Super! I just noticed that when using a decoration from my gift box (I had 6 of a particular item) it let me use them all at once (much like when you buy fences and it keeps loading another one.) I also noticed that FINALLY our garden shed does the same thing. No more placing a flower and then opening the shed back up to get that same type of flower to decorate with!

  20. ana Says:

    These changes should be made at the “storage” too to handle, it would make our lives much easier

  21. Cathy Says:

    Thank you Zynga! Great improvements, especially opening the gift box at the page you left off at. This will make this much more enjoyable!

  22. Marlene Says:

    I love it! The easier and faster things are for us the more time we can spend on our farms doing what we want. Now, if they could make our cellars hold a 1000 items that would really be awesome. Mine is so full ans so is my farm.. lol. .. Thanks Zynga

  23. Patti G Says:

    I think they need to do the same thing with the storage. That way you don’t have to go to every screen to find what you are looking for…….

  24. Michelle Says:

    My storage is also doing what the garden shed is doing! Woohoo
    my earlier post in part “I also noticed that FINALLY our garden shed does the same thing. No more placing a flower and then opening the shed back up to get that same type of flower to decorate with!”

  25. jenn Says:

    YAY I HAVE BEEN WAITING ON THIS

  26. Carl Says:

    Its nice the Giftbox will open to the last place you had open. However, there is a problem with selecting the categories along the top, anytime you click on a category it should take you to page one, instead its saving the last page you were on when you selected that category.

    Example, if I select trees, and go to page two, then click on consumables and then click back on trees, it takes me to the page I was last on under trees. That is not how it should work, selecting the category should reset the pagination to page one.

    The Giftbox itself is poor in its design, a bunch of wasted space, and the buttons are HUGE where they should not be the dominating artwork of the item space.

  27. Vicki Says:

    Now if they would get around to fixing the receiving of gifts and requests! I’ve been waiting 2 weeks!! It’s as though I have NO gift/request exchange at all…totally useless!

  28. Diana Stone Says:

    now this makes more sense then your wheel with more fuel unreal.

  29. Jamie Says:

    NICE! GOTTA TRY IT ON FOR SIZE. :)

  30. Kerrinda Says:

    It would be nice if the orchards would let us sell from inside them instead of having to place the tree on the farm before selling it

  31. Sweet Spirit Says:

    ALRIGHT!!!! Now it won’t be a pain in the A** to add things to an event i.e. flowers to the garden! :D

  32. Carol Says:

    they need to tweek the Storage thing. Trying to get several items of the same thing out at once takes forever! We need memory to go back into and not start at page 1!

  33. nicole Says:

    mine has been like this for weeks now

  34. cathy Says:

    Still having storage problems in english countryside…I have 18 items in the cellar but when I go to the inventory, there is nothing there…help please

  35. Amy Says:

    FINALLY! YAY!

  36. Freda Says:

    I like it! Now, if they would fix it so when you’re in your storage and it would go back to the page you were on, that would be great! I hate having to go through a bunch of pages each time if I’m getting out more than 1 thing.

  37. Kent Says:

    Yay! They continue to bring out positive improvements. The only thing left to do with the giftbox is to have quick clicking for spring flowers, and that kind of thing, the way they do with bottles and building materials.

  38. Anita B. Says:

    # 13 DORIS, CHILL OUT, IT’S JUST A GAME.

  39. Stephanie Says:

    Does anyone know why my animal feed is locked to my home farm??

  40. ngawang chodron Says:

    However!!! We still can’t feed the animals in the English Countryside. FOR ALMOST TWO WEEKS THE ANIMAL FEED IN THE GIFTBOX HAS BEEN LOCKED TO THE HOME FARM!!! THE ANIMALS ARE HUNGRY..I have stopped my quests in the English countryside until this is fixed…no wonder the Duke’s son is having issues with being a farmer (an upcoming quest for those who have not encountered it yet)… the animals have NO FOOD!!!!!! how can any English Countryside farm be thriving..
    and yet, one can put the animal feed from the giftbox into the Animal Trough on the English Countryside and even get extra bags of animal feed… WTF??????????????

  41. Karen Says:

    @Doris….I’m having the same problem with the Building Blocks quest, and it not registering when I harvest the chicken coop. So I did a live chat with Zynga customer support last night, and they gave me the 20 FVC to get past that part of the quest. Apparently a lot of people are having the same problem.

  42. Outre Says:

    There’s a lot they’re doing right – they need to do this wth storage next.

    I agree there are still bugs, but, the development teams for their other games either are clueless, or they aren’t allowed to use these enhancements. I can think of two other games where categorizing the gift box and storage would make happier players.

  43. Loony Says:

    “Now, when you re-open the Giftbox in the game, it will open at the point where it was when you closed it.”

    THANK GOD! At last! :D

  44. Jim Baron Says:

    there should be a sheep pen on the home farm.

  45. Mikey Says:

    The first update of inbox is a disaster for me because i lost many items in my inbox although ZCS team helped me to get it back especially those limited items not all but i thank them for that it’s better than nothing, I just hope this second update turned out smooth..

  46. Susanne Says:

    Why is the animal feed suddenly LOCKED to the English Countryside? I have 19 of 20 in it, but all are now locked…why did I bother to get an animal pen???

  47. Girlfarmer Says:

    I started to build an orchard & used all of my parts already opened & still have 10 more parts to go. I accepted 7 special deliveries this morning & they are all gone! I thought I had a stash of them built up to get rid of some of the seedlings, trees, & watering cans I have built up, but I don’t have any! Is anyone else having this problem?

  48. Nitin Says:

    Yah ! Thats great & awaited feature….kindly do the same with STORAGE too:)

  49. Monica Says:

    I love these changes too…but i noticed too that we are’t able anymore to sell how many of the same items we want to…and that’s really NOT GOOD!!! :-(

  50. Junior Says:

    @Nitin YES THAT WOULB BE AWSOME “kindly do the same with STORAGE”!!!!

  51. FarmRuler Says:

    i can’t access my giftbox for a several time. i click it many times and it does not open. how to solve this problem?

  52. CH Says:

    Doris @13 – Mine is working fine. Try clearing your browser and flash cache then reloading farm.
    Also what browser do you use? Chrome is by far the best for this and other games.

    Jim – you can have a sheep pen on Home Farm is you complete the quest that it is a reward for in EC

  53. Kathy N Says:

    Very nice idea BUT !!! NOw I cannot open my giftbox at all !

  54. Jim Says:

    Can anyone explain why there arrive many different items in the gift box that I have no idea were they go. When I click on them it says not yet on the quest or there is nothing left to add to this…. every time something new pops up I check to see what items I need. these that say nothing left to add were never on any quest I started.
