Today we fully released our new backend layout that aims to be easier on the eye, but more importantly, be easier to use.
Thanks to the early feedback from companies that switched to the new theme early, we were able to also add in a few new features.
All new layout
The main difference in the layout that you'll notice, is that the top blue menu is gone, and replaced with a more subtle left navigation with a popout submenu. A number of internal pages have also had a facelift to bring them in line with the new overall
We love it, and hope you do too!
Here's a quick rundown of what's new:
Reorganised menu structure
As time went on and our feature set grew, we were finding the main menu structure becoming confusing and lacking in a logical structure. So we thought long and hard about where things belonged and reworked the menu into what you see now. We think you'll agree, that things are much easier to find now.
We've grouped the main menu into the following top-level items:
- Team Hub
- This covers everything to do with how you present your content to your users. This covers the Assistant, hosted knowledge base, embedded elements, adding hotspots & helpers.
- Quick Add
Recently updated content on the dashboard
To help you pick up where you left off, or keep an eye on what the rest of the team is working on at a glance, we've added in a section to the dashboard that shows you the most recently updated 10 articles, and their current status. You can also see who is the owner of that article.
Your latest hub cards on the dashboard
To keep on top of things, we're also now showing not just a count, but the actual latest 10 cards. With the ability to hover over any card and peek inside to see what it involves. You can also see who the card is currently assigned to.
Any issues or errors, will be shown at the top of the list, so you can act on those first.
In the left nav, there's now a new menu for quick access to adding content, categories, helpers, and hub cards.
This is a great way for you to quickly get to the create screen for anything, no matter where you are.
Show & Hide the active submenu
Sometimes it helps to have the submenu for the section you're in be always open, sometimes... it gets in your way. So we've added a quick toggle to let you control the behaviour.
