Version 5.0 Teaser: New User Interface!
We’ve been hard at work for months now improving our user interface, and today we’re as giddy as a schoolboy to share a sneak peek at what we’re brewing!
You asked. We listened. We built it just for you.
Our main goal was to make finding and viewing tests as easy and fast as possible. To this end, we have created a new and innovative way to view your dashboard. In addition to the grid view you’re used to, you’ll now be able to view tests in an inbox format. On the left you’ll see a list of all of your most recent tests. On the right, you’ll be able to see a preview of what the test results look like as well as access code analysis, deliverability reports, sharing, the CSS inliner and more.
This means that you’ll no longer have to log into test after test, looking for the one you actually wanted. Want to see the full screenshot? Just click on any of the thumbnails to go directly into your test results.
We also wanted to make the site easier to navigate as a whole. We’ve added a collapsible left navigation menu to the site so that you’re only 1 click away from anything you want.
The menu collapses down to just icons when it’s not in use. We want our users to have as much screen real estate as possible to view their test results and analytics campaigns. When collapsed, the icons will still be accessible so that you can istantly move from the Email Optimizer to your test results. Yahtzee!
We also wanted to consolidate some of the disparate elements of our site. We took all of our settings pages, and combined them into a single, easy to use page. We hope that these changes make for a significant improvement in the user experience so email testing is less of a headache.
