Community News and Feedback forum

  • This is a forum dedicated to:

    • Sharing information about our Community such as new features, next releases, down time etc etc
    • A way for us to gather your input, suggestions, ideas and more about the Community

    In addition to that forum and if you prefer, you can always contact Jean Richert.

  • Glad to see this forum.  I wish that a link to it was visible everywhere.   Perhaps, if you were to shrink the Home, Forum, and Wiki buttons a little, you could fit Ideas and Feedback on the same line?  Or, at least put it somewhere on the right, clearly labeled as feedback, not just About the Community.

  • Visibility is a big issue I think.   I believe there are a lot of people who would have something to say here if they knew there was a place to say it.  News, too, is important ... like getting out the word to people that they can put in a real name to show up instead of the login id.

  • Shrink the buttons a little? Understatement of the year? They may be nice for small phones and fat fingers, but on a desktop they are ridiculous (understatement).

    80% of the forum landing page is filled with... banners and buttons.

  • Reviewing our screens is definitely part of our roadmap...  

  • BTW 14941, if you go to your profile you can update a more recognizable name to be displayed instead of your login ID.

  • Desktop user here - I was looking at the forum posts - there's only 5 posts / page, and a huge amount of space taken up at the top with "header" stuff.

    Navigating forum posts feels unwieldy.

  • Count your blessings that you're not on an iPad - the pre-school icons just fit at the bottom of the screen...

  • Good points.   I asked and was told that the large buttons would help in Tablet and Mobile viewers....  but I do think most people are using their desktop browsers.  

    As a workaround, I zoom in a little on my browser (but I find that 75% is about the limit for my eyes and the default fonts.

  • If one is going to program for mobile, then one needs code that is sensitive to that, rather than trying to make the desktop look like something horrible ... Windows 8, for example.   But, I think the big buttons miss the point because they are actually worse on a smaller device, not better.

  • Our Community is using responsive-web therefore the UI being used for desktop is the same as the one for mobile devices... but based on comments above, there seems to be some concerns related to the size of our buttons. Feedback noted as we are looking into our current UI and Community roadmap. Thanks
