Trending feedback for the new Workfront experience Beta - February 14th 2020

Hello Josh! Thank you for the update. Great to have some colour back in the system that really improves the experience! (Headers). I may add one point concerning headers that has not been solved for me so far and I am curious about your point of view. It is about losing header description and the fact that I always have to flip between the update stream and the task details to have a context between description and comments. Some users already discussed the topic within "https://one.workfront.com/s/question/0D50z00006Px3baCAB/" https://one.workfront.com/s/question/0D50z00006Px3baCAB/ For my organization that is really a show stopper for further migration of users to Beta. I am also still missing the priority of a task in the header of a task landingpage. Thanks, Stephan Stephan Siller

Hi Josh, Not sure if this is the same thing - with regards to your item - Left Navigation. However, the over-sensitive nature of the sliding nav bar, means that every time the mouse touches it, it opens. I have had a few grumbles about this, as well as the fact that I am also experiencing this - so, I know how they feel. It would be great if the menu could be toggled on, or off from the slider - or, simply lock it in place when you don't need it... **UPDATE - found the lock....click the chevron....checked preview - looks like it is there and waiting for the next release....ty Thanks!

Hi Stephan, Thank you for the feedback on the headers. We are aware of this feedback and we have been investigating solutions to help reduce you having to flip between updates and details. However we do not yet have a solution on our development roadmap. Josh Boston

Hi Miranda, Yes further improvements to the left navigation is in development currently to add the capabilities you are talking about. We will be providing the ability to have the navigation always open (icons and text) or always closed (icons only). The open on hover will be removed. Then, if the navigation is open the rest of the content will move over to the right so it isn't hidden behind the navigation. This hasn't been release to preview yet. Josh Boston

I can't even express how excited I am about the open on hover being removed!!!! Michelle Bowden Fiserv ETG

Hi Josh, I've recently started using the new experience and have noticed two things so far. 1) when @tagging a user in an update the users email id is added to the comment. Not their user name . 2) the "Success" pop up that comes up when you're changes are saved stays on the screen for quite some time and blocks access to the menu. It would be less intrusive if the notification was on the lower right part of the screen. Kristy Musgrove Havertys

Is there any news on when release 2020.1 will occur? Thanks Janelle Hicks Lifespan Corporation

Hi Kristy, Thanks for trying out the new experience. For 1) we will be making an update soon to change this to First and Last Name. For 2) we are investigating an update to move this message. At this point, we do not have a release date yet. JoshBoston

Hi Janelle, We are actively working on selecting a release date for 2020.1. We are planning on communicating the date in an announcement center message in the next couple of weeks. JoshBoston

To piggy back on Stephan's comment about the inconvenience of needing to switch between description/details and the update stream, this is particularly frustrating with the loss in the New Experience of the ability to type an update, switch to another tab, and have that in-progress update remain when you navigate back to the updates tab. Previously, users could write part of an update, and come back to it later easily, after finding additional information. Now I find myself opening extra tabs in my browser because the update will disappear if I navigate away. Keegan O'Connor Green River College

I agree! We never needed this much confirmation in Classic and somehow managed just fine 🙂 Michelle Bowden Fiserv ETG
