It’s been awhile since our last blog post. We have been working away and you can see all the hard work by logging in…(or creating an account, if you haven’t already!)
As you may have noticed, we have redesigned the Space menu. Hoorah!
It still has a few bugs which we are gradually ironing out and the design is being tweaked as I type but we hope you like the steps we are taking to improve the Ribose experience.
Our main goals for the Space menu that the previous menu did poorly was:
Drag and drop to organise
Maintaining 'Folders' (now called 'Lists')
Did not display the Space icon anywhere.
Besides from the Space menu, you can see that the navigation
looks…different. What you see is just the beginning of many changes
yet to come (it’s a slow process, bear with us!). The problem was -
previously there were two navigations bars that looked very similar. The
first bar contained apps that were used for personal use and the second
bar belonged to the Space that you were currently in. However because
they looked the same and even contained links that were named the same
e.g. A personal calendar and a Space calendar, it would cause a lot of
confusion to the user.
Settings has been improved. You no longer have to leave what you are working on to make a change to your Settings. It all auto saves too!
Less color, less distractions.
From our beta tests a while back, many of you commented on the colors used on the site being a distraction. As a result we have been gradually reducing the use of too much color on the site where it does not help or enhance the user experience.
