We've been using the new interface for what, 2 weeks now? While some things were good additions (way to modify apps, more configuration on fields, creating new app reference items on the fly, etc.), I feel that the new "Core Redesign that loads data 200% faster" actually made everything I'm using in Podio a real pain. The overlay just doesn't work, it slows down the process of looking for something, makes it hard to know where to click, it's been buggy even with Chrome (not popping up the item). While I used to be a real pro using Podio, I feel like I lost the felling of knowing exactly what I am doing and controlling my environment.
Am I the only one??? I've pushed Podio in other organizations because for me it was the way of doing things and was working in conjunction with the Getting Things Done concepts. Now even the tasks completely disappeared at the bottom of the item page. Right now I could not be recommending Podio to other organizations as It was already not easy to learn (lots of people gets the Blank Page feeling), but now I don't see how they could be really understanding the whole platform without getting lost.
I really hope you guys will rethink your interface, even though you've been working on it for 6 months and even though it would a real pain for you to move away from a decision. I know your CTO addressed some of the critics with solution plans, but I don't recall having him saying he would be reconsidering the interface...
I would also remove the loads data 200% faster from the new interface advantages because, for me, it's been taking in average more time to load items compared to the previous interface.
We are with you Podio and hope all our comments will get you back on track.
