Console: Usability Improvements

We’ve completed the following Usability Improvements for Console this month:

  • Deep Linking has been added, to allow linking to configuration and saved connection modal steps. These types of links are helpful when collaborating with others on a configuration.
  • For the new Workflow UI (Private Access), we now provide links to the Query Job for failed tasks. Previously, we provided this link only for successful tasks.
  • We updated the project revision history list for workflow. The terminology used and the list view are easier to understand.

Workflow UI (Private Access): Create Workflow Template

We’ve updated the create experience for enhanced usability, providing templates and a visual picture of the workflow you’re about to create, a drop down list of current projects that you can add the workflow to, along with an improved navigational flow.
