Hi
Am I correct in assuming that the FO review database is based on Excel and therefore not viewable on a mobile device? I am having no luck when trying to view it on my tablet and just wanted to make sure that I wasn't having a brain fade lol.

The FO Review is a Google Sheet. It's not Excel, although you can download it in an Excel format if you like.

By "not viewable on a mobile device" are you saying it cannot be viewed at all? If so, please explain more.

Or do you mean you can only see small portions at a time and have to scroll from side to side to see more? If this is the case, that is the normal behavior of a spreadsheet. Spreadsheets don't have a responsive design that allows the information to reformat itself to fit the width of a small screen. Heck, it doesn't even reformat on a large computer monitor -- everyone has to scroll from side to side. ;)

The navigation is done by clicking on tabs at the bottom of the sheet. If you're viewing the sheet in a regular internet browser on your phone or tablet, you might not see these tabs. I use the Google Sheets app that I downloaded from the Google Play store for my android phone. It works much better than a browser. Maybe there's something similar for your device?

Yes, I was looking for the tabs but couldn't see them. That would be the problem. We have Samsung Android devices at our house? So I will download the google sheets app

I hope the app works better for you. Thanks for letting me know about this, by the way. It's good to know when people have questions or run into trouble.

This is a tremendous resource. Many thanks for making it available. To those who use "Pages" on a mac, just download the tables as cvs comma separated values and open in Pages. Works like a dream!

Yes there is but I prefer to use the Mac applications. They come native on the device and work great. I can save as excel or, in the Pages app, I can save as Microsoft Word.

Hello - I added a review about three weeks ago for Candle Science, and another one last night. I wonder when they might appear on the review chart?
TIA :)

That’s great, thanks DeeAnna. No worries on timing, I just hadn’t used it before so didn’t know how long it usually takes.

@KiwiMoose -- I don't have a fixed schedule to be honest. It might be a few weeks or a few months. All new content that I haven't merged into the sheets for the companies is stored in the review, although not in its proper final spot. For all new content, look at the last few tabs titled FO add, FO edit, Supplier add, and Supplier edit.

****

@ Everyone -- here are the fragrance oil reviews added since 20 January --

Candle Science Cassia and Amber
Candle Science Apple Harvest
Elements Bath & Body Patchouli Honey
Fragrance Buddy White Tea and Ginger
Fragrance Buddy Citrus Bath
Majestic Mountain Sage Rhubarb and Sugar Cane
Rustic Escentuals Almond Creme

Dibbles updated the Fragrance Buddy's Lily of the Valley review to say the scent is sticking well in soap at 1 year.

edit: There were no additions or updates to the Supplier list.
