CORE: User Interface Modifications

Core's UI has been greatly improved with some new enhanced modifications. We have introduced a new login dialogue box and have replaced the Recently Ingested carousel on the home page with a centralized advanced search bar. These updates provide an improved user experience in terms of logging into and immediately searching for your content via Core. Other improvements noted below include, an update to the My Bins panel and a repostioning of the Admin dropdown menu.

Please note that if you do not see some of these features then this is due to your allocated Core Access Level. For further information, please contact your Wazee Digital representative here.

The New Home Page

Once logged into your Core account you will land on the redesigned home page, which has a large search bar in the centre. This allows the user to immediately search and access their content, and it is consistent throughout the Core platform with suggested type-ahead search terms and search history features. In the top right hand corner of the home page there are Advanced Search and My Search features which allow the user to define a search criteria and save it for future searches. Above these, are dropdown menus providing access to your account options as well as further options under Admin and User.

My Bins

This update adds a more efficient way to navigate to the My Bins dialog box, in turn creating a more intuitive and better user experience around using bins in Core. For further information on bins please see Managing Bins.

The main function of My Bins on a search results page is to create or select a bin for a user to add assets to which appear in the results. The old My Bins panel was positioned in the left hand column and most of the time was not visible unless a user scrolled down the page. We have made two changes to help:

First, the My Bins button is now located on the top right hand side of the screen. Once inside My Bins, there is a new button called Bin Options.  When selected, a dropdown list of actions available for that user and bin will appear.

Admin Menu Relocation

The Admin menu option has now been moved from the bottom right to the top right hand side of the screen next to the users name.
