Was there anything you found particularly difficult?
Reasons for finding These Homes difficult to use:
|Remembering past addresses.|
|It wasn't that it was difficult, and this won't affect everyone but I found the health section tricky due to the limit of health conditions you can add as I have more than the limit. But I did add additional information in the box I could type info in.|
|Applying for houses I can't seem to apply, and there's a few properties I have liked on the website but can't seem to get any further on, as in applying for property's.|
|Logging in and out in the process of registering.|
|As I forgot to take a note of the suggested strong password I cannot now access the account - there is no facility to reset and an email I sent to ask for help hasn't yet been answered :(|
|How I know it is been no often to me, I needs know how many I am list as shortly?|
|Password was difficult. Also it doesn’t matter how many times I try I cannot access what properties are actually available.|
|There was no immediate acknowledgement that I had registered.|
|The priority passes are very confusing.|
|Adding a photo of evidence, doing it from my phone meant having to try and turn the image into a PDF format for download. Got there in the end but was a little tricky!|
|I was facing being homeless and don't think the site was helpful in this circumstance. Even after getting registered it wasn't clear how and who to contact.|
Can you think of any improvements that would have made the process easier?
Suggestions for improvements:
|Removing the limit of how many health conditions that you can add would be the only thing for me.|
|A number to call or troubleshooting.||When trying to find property’s the website doesn’t always show the all and very slow.|
|Add a 'forgot your password' facility.|
|I think it would be better if people were automatically registered with These Homes when they submit a homeless registration. It's a very difficult and stressful time without having to register with multiple sites especially if WiFi/ Internet is a problem as it was for me.|
|If all council could be linked all together, that way it would help people like me finding it hard to pass on information.|
|I try find information as bronze, silver, gold or other award - information what explains and I’m try to find right for award.|
|Insert a message: Registration successful.|
|The questions need to be more basic and relevant to the section.|
|Allowing to upload any format of evidence as long as it’s clear.|
|Making the site less complicated. With all the agents being together in the same site, it's not easy to know who to contact. I found the site also takes out information that already been added for some reason.|
|Should have been a straight forward transfer between housing authorities.|
