My suggestion is a way of seeing where the hired farmer is on the farms without clicking through each one..if you want to see if the hired help has left ,currently we have ot go through each farm and find them..Yes we can see the flash on so and so if harvesting such a product, but if all farms have the same crop,or if they are working off line this doesnt help.. could there not be a way of seeing if the worker is still around,and where.

My suggestion is to find all means possible to avoid clicking through every farm. I would LOVE to be able to water all flowers or irrigate all plants in the same way we can currently fertilize. I agree with another player in wanting to know which farm the hired farmer is on.
Also, in a similar vein, I wish we could click on the small template for the farms to find out whether the crops are ripe, not ripe or just plain dead. I realize that this conflicts with whether trees and flowers are ripe, but that is a lessor issue for me.

Default Need to know which farm people are on and if they leave

I would LOVE is to be able to know if a worker is still on my farm, and if so, which one. The new info text things tell us that so and so arrived on our farm - but which one? I often hire for 20 farms at a time and people sometimes skip around when they work so the current messages don't give me a lot of info. Also, if I stepped out of the room for a minute and missed the message, it's gone - the message has disappeared.

I think it would help to have some kind of permanent indicator of where a worker is - maybe a little dot on the farm triangle thing (or maybe change the block color of any farm that has a worker on it). That way, if I need to find my worker(s) to hire them for another farm, see if they're still planning to continue (maybe they're taking a break and I can message them - or maybe they got booted off), I can get a quick visual of where they are or if they've gone.

Default hiring people to do everything.

I know that slash key wants us to go back to market for hiring people ... The problem is you hire them and they do what they want. leavng stuff scattered everywhere. I think if you made all money and xp go th the chest the person would have no choice but to finish or leave it.

They accept jobs and then don't finish and it isn't fair to the farmer who hired them to try to get the mess cleaned up. That ew usually end up doing. I feel like if they take a job it should be completed or don't take it someone else will. But again I think if you put xp points and cash in chest and not give anything until the total job is comlete a lot of ppl would go back to market.

while I realize that we can only Work a Persons Facilities or Refer Clients periodically (Every 12 hours or once Daily), Why are there no limits on the frequency a person can post these Facilities or Request Referrals? It is very annoying to sit thru the numerous steps to reach these farms, It is not until the last step before you see a notice that I've already worked these farms or referred clients. They should only be able to post properties every 12 hours or once daily. This would help us all.

Default number of facilities per farm

Would it be possible for your genius gnomes to let us see the text when we mouse over the hired farm when working facilities for our friends/neighbours? This would greatly help those farmers without the full train set to see which farms had the least amount of facilities on them and leave the largest to the end.
Thank you for your consideration.

I would like to see if be more beneficial for people to accept a job for trees. Harvest/Plow gives the XP, Flowers give the great money, but trees gives only product and no one want to accept a tree job. There could be 15 people in the market all demanding HP so they can level up. Please consider making tree XP equivalent to that of harvesting/plowing.

Default hiring strangers

It would be nice if, when we went to the market place to hire someone, our neighbors would "glow" or something to distinguish that they are are neighbors, I prefer to hire strangers, don't we get more product, plus a stranger would get the bonus vs a neighbor.
