Project Details Page Refreshed!

 

This coming Monday you will notice a few changes to the Project Details page. This is part of a series of UI/UX updates we’re working on designed to make the app cleaner, simpler, easier on the eye but still have the current level of functionality.

These changes may seem minor, but small irritants in the UI can become an annoyance over time which nobody wants! We want to make your experience smoother!

The most noticeable change is the header on the page. We have cleaned this up so it matches other styles and is easier to understand. Some of the other subtle changes include:

  • Restyled entire header section
  • Made ‘Edit Project’ and ‘Active/Complete’ functionality clearer
  • Added large company avatar
  • Widened right column
  • Improved look of right side all modules
  • Moved ‘Project Module’ settings to ‘Edit project’
  • Lightened modules when they’re empty
  • Redesigned Contacts module (Using Avatars)
  • Simplified modules (When no data added)
  • Replaced all GIF icons with faster, cleaner Icon fonts
  • Flattened all button styles
  • Restyled ‘Drag/Drop’ contact to task buttons
  • And many small CSS changes

 

As always we are open to feedback. We are currently open to ideas related to UI/UX as we want to make the app friendlier and easier to adopt. Whether you have big or small ideas, drop us an email, we’ll love to hear your thoughts or comment on this post so others can discuss.

More coming soon!

  • The ‘chat’ icon is just a quicker way to drop a ‘project message’ to someone that using the messaging module on the page. When added the message will go into the general messages for that project. As for avatars, you’ll see us starting to ‘personalize’ PWF a lot more 😉

  • We’ve been talking about this the past week and soon will be looking at a rebuild of the Tasks section on the PD page. We will be making it a lot easier to work with your tasks. This is on our near term dev plans.

  • I’ll keep that in mind as we work through these changes. tere could be a rollon effect of hiding the right column but I hear what you’re saying and will have a think.

  • Much more about to come…

  • That was a screenshot of the Professional plan. The Advanced account will show the status. 😉

  • Hi there. We don’t give too much away not because we’re trying to hide info, rather we work on about a six month forward looking plan and plans can change. Sometimes we hit hurdles and have to change approaches and other times we just have good ideas that were unplanned. What I can say is our forward plans and focus are all on UI/UK. We are looking to work through the app improving the interface and current functionality.

    This is a small taste. We will be making it easier to add and work with tasks, changing the font throughout, tweaking the colours and adding a burn report. We are overhauling the inapp help and search and a little later will be rebuilding the reports… This Monday we have an update to the Project Details page which tidies it up and we have a brand new mobile webapp out in about a week… 😉

    Hope that helps!

      Awesome!! so exciting!

  • Mobile app out soon. Email sales@proworkflow.com and ask to get on the beta program for it and they’ll send you the link. Reports overhaul is on the agenda.

    We need a way to print off a task at full page size easier. At the moment you have to go into the printer and scale up to fill the page. There are times when I use a task as a work order for our shop. The fact that it only covers about 25% of the page is problematic.

    Good morning! The changes are great! I hope in the future to see the Reports page made a bit more functional. It’s not easy creating a report right now.

    Also we’d like to be able to search through more data at the task level. Right now there are LOADS of choices when searching through data at the Project Level but we have multiple deliverables for each project (by way of multiple delivery tasks per project) and since we can’t get much data out of those tasks I can’t automate some of the things that I need to be able to.
    Thanks!
