WS 3.0: White interface & three new reactions
We are happy to introduce an updated interface and multiple user and functional improvements. New design is already in your accounts!
Let’s try to predict top 5 questions of the first encounter with the redesign and answer them
1. Why did you do that?
discovered that bulky floating header with multiple UX problems can no
longer be satisfying: neither visually nor technically. Moreover, it does not
allow to fulfill all of our ideas. Many years it served us faithfully, but it
is time to move on.
- We optimized the layout of information and decreased the overall height approximately twofold, which enables us to stay away from transformations and fixate the header on all the pages
- We bid farewell to the blue color giving preference to contrasting elements on the white background
- Redesigned the icons
- Combined Create Project /Task /Invitation buttons in one
- Implemented the search and result output on all lists in one spot (projects + archive + tasks + done + people + bookmarks)
everything is easy and in contrast,
2. Where’s the account section?
to the Account sections is in the drop-down menu ()
right behind the name of your company
- People Section moved to the Calendar
- Creating new project is now possible from two places
Please, note that in the top right-hand
corner, in the place of the hamburger menu, is your avatar. Functionality
remains the same.
3. Where is my logo?
When working on the header redesign, we had to change the format of the uploaded logos. If earlier there was an option to use rectangular pictures with the 3:1 ratio, then now it has to be plus-minus square with the 1:1 ration. If your logo was not of square shape, then, unfortunately, it will no longer be reflected within the account; however, it will still remain the same on the login page till you download the new version. We truly hope that you will forgive us for any inconveniences it may cause. We will ensure not to do anything like that in the future.
Minimum recommended size of the company icon to be uploaded or the icon of the group of projects — 96*96 px. This is the size that will be used on Retina displays, and for regular displays — it will show its minimized version of 48*48 px.
Advice the uploaded icon should not contain the name of your company because the name from the «Account Settings» is now always reflected and cannot be hidden as earlier.
Upload of the new icon of the company is now possible by using the drag-&-drop features. Again, accept our apologies...
4. Where is the «Create new project» button?
Advice if you wish to create tasks skipping the drop-down menu of options — just use double click.
5. Is there anything that I reaaaaally need?
Absolutely! We added three new reactions: Party, Medal, Sad face ;-)
