Sidebar - request for feedback :)
Hi product enthusiasts! Hannah from Loomio here, with an update from Loomio HQ, and a request for feedback :)
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been implementing a sidebar for Loomio navigation, based on the Material design spec. It is quite a significant UI change, and we wanted to run it by you before pressing play.
Our goal is to make the most common options more accessible, and simplify navigation.
- The Recent and Unread options have been moved from the navbar into the top panel of the sidebar, which also has an option to see your Muted threads.
- The Groups list has been moved to a panel in the sidebar.
- The user options dropdown menu has been removed, and all of the options are now in the sidebar.
The sidebar is open by default on large screens, and collapsed by default on small screens like smartphones. It can be toggled via the bars icon in the navbar.
I’ve attached a few gifs showing the sidebar on both a large screen and a small screen.
I would love to hear your thoughts, feedback, and be alerted to anything we may have overlooked over the course of developing this feature.
Thanks very much!
