Hi Peter,

Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you like the look of the new interface. We have had some reports that people find the new interface slower and we are looking into that.

One of the main reasons behind the new look and feel is to separate the functionality from the design and thereby make it easier to implement functionality changes in the future. While performing this massive task of separating the code that contains functionality from the code that contains design, we also updated the look.

Making it easy is one of our core values and something we work with continously. It would be nice to know if there are any specific areas where you find the system less easy. I find that using shortcuts to specific folders in my projects, for example, greatly dcreases the number of clicks needed to reach my information.

Better search is one of the projects that we are investigating at the moment. I hope that we'll find a solution for that.

Best regards,
Karolina

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your feedback. You're quite right, focus has actually been entirely on the visuals. All to make it easier to use though, rather than just bringing eye candy. Our aim has been to make relevant information more visible and the interface itself more INvisible.

The reason no functionality has changed is that we've replaced only the visual code (CSS). Functionality improvement is, as Karolina points out, something we work on continuously and in parallel.

Regards,
Martin

OK, I hope for a focus on improving the basic functionality the next time, then. Speed, search capabilities and reducing the number of keyclicks, for example. Things that improve everyday user experience.

Thanks for listening,

Peter

Hej
Jag är inte imponerad över det nya utseendet. Hur kan ni välja svart och mörkt grå som inramning (bakgrunder) det är helt obegripligt! Påtok för svårläst.
PP är ju ingen mediaplayer som man har står på lite soft i bakgrunden i minimerat läge där ett likande utseende kan vara OK. Det har väl blivit lite bättre med ikoner och symboler men inramningen kan ni byta omedelbart till vitt eller möjligeh någon mycket ljus ton som ökar läsbarheten.

Med vänlig hälsning

Hej måste slå ett slag för den helt klart försämrade funktionen med att visualisera vem som tackat ja resp nej till ett möte...

Previously, we saw easily with red and green tick who accepted respectively denyed the meeting.
In the new interface is the only light or dark gray, and grey strike-through. Difficult to see who answered yes or no.
Much better before!

Ville oxå bara uttrycka hur pass mycket sämre jag tycker att det har blivit med den nya designen (verkar ju inte vara den enda..), allt flyter ju ihop och är mycket mer svårläst/navigerat, ni är en tjänst som borde ställa användarvänlighet före design, så hur ni kan släppa en designrelease är för mig ett mysterium.

Hi Patrik,

Thanks for giving us feedback on the new design. For clarity, the overwhelming part of the work for the new design was separating the code for looks from the code for functionality. That was something that we had to do to make the update of functionality easier and make the system more coherent.

Best regards,
Karolina

Hej!
Tyvärr måste jag hålla med flera andra: den nya designen är inte bra. Den är alldeles för mörk. Negativ kontrast är inte bra för ögat och än värre för oss färgblinda.
Vänligen Ulf Pettersson
