Thanks a lot for your detailed report @luisramos0. I wonder however what’s the scope of that branch from Rob is just adding that left-side navbar?
The concern I have with any efforts on UX/UI is the lack of expert design feedback. Most of the pitfalls we encounter in the current design is due to devs doing what they are not generally good at. I’m too used to seeing it this in all sorts of projects.
In the same vein, we can’t ignore the impact of a UI change like this one will have on our users. IMO it has to be a well thought move and bring measurable improvements, if we decide to ship it. Redesigning it’s nothing we can do every day, so we can waste the opportunity.
