UniPhi Software, 08 Jul 2019
In the upcoming UniPhi 15 release, we have been making a lot of changes to the user experience of the system. Lots of little tweaks and updates have been made to the interface so that areas of UniPhi are now simpler and easier to use.
One of the first small tweaks we have added to UniPhi is the summary screen view you get when drilling into a project.
If you aren't assigned a project manager access level role (or above) on a project, what you see when drilling in on a project, is the same as before. You will see a summary of that project, as you did before, though now there is an up arrow which takes you back to the summary screen - part of some of the handy new shortcuts making their way through UniPhi!
|Project Summary Screen - Non-Program/Project Manager Role|
If you are assigned a project manager access level role (or above) on a project, this is where our new UX improvements kick in. When you drill into a project you will now be presented with a brand new view. What used to be a ridiculously long page to scroll down in UniPhi 14, has now been broken up and recreated into relevant sub-navigation bars.

|New Sub-Navigation Bar - Program/Project Manager|
Expanding the use of sub-navigation bars has been under continuous improvement since UniPhi 13 and the previous removal of the Portfolio and My Portfolio navigation gave us a lot more room to improve workflow and moving around the system.
One of the main and most useful areas of change has been in creating the Custom Fields sub-navigation. Now when your system administrator creates custom fields for your organisation, they are neatly listed and organised on their own page. Users can then easily access that page and enter relevant information into those fields without having to scroll for centuries, like they used to on the project summary page.

What may seem like quite a small tweak has greatly improved the usability of the application by simplifying it and has added a lot of time-saving value to our users (especially those who have been testing the changes!).
Other improvements to functionality in the Project Details screen, has been in adding the ability to change the sector field, as well as a bunch of other data fields that the projects belong to.

These changes are but a few of the small tweaks we've made and we'll be blogging about the rest up until the release of UniPhi 15. Check our LinkedIn
