Navigate the easier way

As you know we thrive on feedback; whether it’s managing the feedback process through Conjure, or receiving your lovely feedback on the app itself.  With this week’s set of updates we wanted to shout out Mike of UXinnuendo and Jean of Awesome, who, amongst many others, helped us with feedback regarding these features.  With everyone’s help we’re continuing on our mission to make feedback smarter and faster, so we want to hear from you. Now onto the magic.

Anything but crumby…

This week we’ve completely revamped the breadcrumb navigation from within feedback view to make finding what you want and navigating to the next piece of work simpler and faster.

What you’ll notice:

Thumbnails

See the design, not just the title, right there in the menu. This should make it visually easier to browse for what you want, and avoid heading back to the listing.

Information is beautiful

We’ve brought more into the list including how many items are in a group, recent unread comments, and the latest activity on an item.

Looking for something specific? Or a design with several iterations? Simply start typing the name and the results will show in real time. Navigate with your arrow keys and hit enter to gain special powers.

I’m a fan… are you?

We’ve also done a quick little update to the way our “fanning” works on viewing a project or a work item. We used to initiate this behaviour when you clicked any item, however we’ve now moved that behind a nice little icon in the bottom right hand corner of the thumbnail. Its a neat way to get a quick overview of what lies beneath, and now with the updated placement keeps the flow fast and easy to get to what you want, straight away.

Further down the line…

There are some big developments underway at Conjure HQ, we’ve got a larger team than ever focused on delivering the next set of product updates, all in time for our 1.0 launch (as well as coming out of beta)!

These include simple updates such as better drag and drop to upload support, but also larger projects that have been in the works for months including support for multiple file types (think PDF etc), and finally the big update… a desktop app with a difference, but you’re going to have to wait to hear more about that!

Until then, magical family… happy conjuring.
