The main Craigslist marketplace page gives the user information needed to identify items to post. The Market Performance chart l (#1) lets you quickly navigate items by status and show those results in the data table below simply by clicking on a specific column. The Market Intelligence chart provides a snapshot of items that have been listed and sold over date ranges by selecting the dropdown in the top right of each chart. The data table allows inline editing, sorting and filtering.
Select ‘Listed‘ from the Market Performance Chart to see the most recent item’s you have posted to Craigslist.
- Click on Listed’s blue column
- Date item was posted to Craigslist.
- The Craigslist URL to the item’s post.
An item can be flagged automatically by Craigslist or its community members and selecting this column will display posts in that status from your most recent queue.
It is possible that an item will show as “bounced” and occurs when there was a communication error between our application and the Craigslist website. In most cases this means the post may or may not have successfully completed and we offer a reason message in the datagrid. We recommend checking your Craigslist account directly to verify the post’s state. If the post is live and has a valid URL you can add that to the column in the datagrid by clicking ‘Set URL’ and pasting the live post’s link there.
This chart shows the total items listed and sold over the past 7 days. Use the dropdown to see further back in time by business quarter.
