Description

I think that we should look into having a single navigation tab that consolidates views of BP Docs, uploaded files, and discussion forum attachments. I remember we were working on this at one point, but don't know where we left it.

History

#1 Updated by Boone Gorges over 5 years ago

  • Tracker changed from Feature to Design/UX
  • Assignee changed from Boone Gorges to Chris Stein

Moving this over to Chris for the moment. I'll need some mockups or at least some description before moving forward with implementation.

#2 Updated by Boone Gorges about 5 years ago

  • Target version changed from 1.7 to 1.8

Moving to 1.8 for further discussion.

#3 Updated by Boone Gorges over 4 years ago

Adding Samantha as a watcher. Sam, I think this is a fairly low priority item, but I'm wondering if maybe something has come up in user testing, or if maybe you had any ideas about how we might combine some of these various interfaces.

#4 Updated by Boone Gorges over 4 years ago

  • Assignee changed from Chris Stein to Samantha Raddatz
  • Target version changed from 1.8 to Future release

Moving out of active milestones. I think it's worth having the discussion about this, though I'm open to the possibility that we should just scrap the idea and leave things the way they are.

Okay. Maybe at some point we could do some UX testing around the group interface and see whether people find these different sections confusing or not. Samantha, can you please put that on a list to look at at some point? Thank you

Copy. Added to the list.

  • Target version changed from Future release to 1.16

think about something like a "group library." Putting in 1.16 for now

Happy to draft up some UX recommendations for this if it's something we're looking to tackle for 1.16. In that case I'd need some more info and ideally some screenshots of which specific areas of the UI this should effect.

  • Target version changed from 1.16 to 1.17

Given other focuses for 1.16, I don't see us having the design bandwidth to tackle this. But I think we should begin the conversation this fall if we want to pursue this, and look for implementation for 1.17.

#12 Updated by Matt Gold about 1 month ago

Thanks. I'd really like us to tackle this in the Spring at the latest. I think it's doable and important (something reinforced to me this semester by my student as I taught on the commons), and not dependent on the redesign.
