    Yes, you'll need the most recent version of MTurkSuite.

    Where would one find Group IDs? to add to MTS? I have always relied on Hit Scraper and Panda and now I can't seem to figure out how to Panda so guess i have to evolve

    To add to HIT Catcher in MTS, you mean? Right click the accept link and copy that URL to get the link saved. Then on the HIT Catcher tab, click "Add Watcher" and paste the whole URL in.

    Can you also cut and paste the Group ID into that field? It indicates you can but I tried in and none of the settings are filled out...is it just the URL for now that can be used?

    Has anyone else noticed that the HIT title doesn't show on the HIT page after accepting a task? I'm wondering if it's a color theme, MTS issue, or something to do with the new worker site layout.

    Also noticed that the number of HITS available on the website is no longer listed on at the top (or anywhere) of the dashboard. That was a useful indicator of the work available for the day...so it's a bit of a disappointment. Unless someone knows a way to find out on the new site....

    If you can, I don't know how. I've just been using the whole URL since that works.

    The new site doesn't have that by default right now. You can add it with this script: https://www.mturkcrowd.com/posts/1082446/

    No, it's not visible on the new site.

    One massive positive about the new site is that there seems to be a lot less PREs and CAPTCHAs!

    Anyone else noticed this?

    The PRE's have been dramatically improved. Not sure if when everyone gets their scripts moved over its going to stay that way but it sure is nice while it lasts.

    Has anyone figured out if there's a way to skip to the last page of your HITs for the day on a "Your Activity" page? For example, this link: https://worker.mturk.com/status_details/2017-12-22. There are "next" arrows at the bottom of the page but do I have to click through them one page at a time to get to the end?

    Create a bookmarklet. (A bookmark with javascript code as its url). Then you can just click it while on a status page and it will take you to the last one.

    This is the code that goes in the URL section of the bookmark.
    Code:
    javascript:fetch(`${window.location.pathname}?format=json`, {credentials: `include`}).then(res => res.json()).then(json => window.location.replace(`${window.location.pathname}?page_number=${Math.ceil(json.total_num_results / 20)}`));

    Any update on the total pending thing? Is it gone forever?
