Today I’m very excited to announce the redesign of the group and member management pages within Gaggle Mail. We’ve been working on this for a while and we’re really proud of how it’s turned out. As ever we’ve kept simplicity at the centre of what we do and this is reflected heavily in our changes.
For desktop layouts we’ve moved search into the header bar and started taking advantage of the full width of the screen enabling us to show more information without things looking crowded. We’ve also condensed the navigation options in the left hand panel and added a really simple dropdown chooser to allow you to switch between your groups. The Compose button has also been moved to be always available at the bottom right of the screen.
Member’s own details pages have also been given a friendlier makeover.
As well as these visual changes there’s been plenty going on behind the scenes. We’ve rebuild our “Add New Members” area to better support internalization (non-English characters) and also added some much requested helper text when enabling the Message Archive for members.
Oh and the more observant of you may have noticed we’ve updated our logo slightly, it’s but a major change but filling in the circles gave a more solid feel – we hope you agree!
We really hope you like the changes we’re made and if you have any feedback for us we’d love to hear it.
