In October 2021, we launched the new look of Podio with fresh colors, retina-ready icons and modernised components. Since then, the new user interface (UI) has received a lot of love from our users and as of today, more than 99% of our active users have shifted to the new look.
While launching the UI, we gave our users the flexibility to turn on the new look and switch back to the old Podio look if needed. This allowed our users to compare both the looks, share their feedback and embrace the new look at their own convenience. We have taken a note of all the feedback and issues raised and tried to incorporate them incrementally. If your feedback has not been incorporated yet, it does not mean we haven't heard you, but it is most likely in our backlog and competing with other productive and beautiful stuff we are trying to build for you.
In these 10 months, we have reached a pretty stable state of the new look being launched in both web and mobile apps and we have started adding user experience (UX) enhancements to the new look to make it not just an aesthetic change but to offer you a better UX as well. Please look out for upcoming product news on our next set of UI additions.
Further, with the upgraded technology utilised for the new look and feature improvements like the App View Pane Improvement launched on the new look, it also offers our users a more performant interface and likely opens up the UI for many more UX innovations.
Based on the success we have seen in the new look so far and considering most of our active users have completely transitioned into the new look, we have now decided to deprecate the old look.
- The old look will be deprecated on 30th August 2022
What happens on Deprecation:
- If you are on the new look, the option to switch back to the old look will no longer be available
- If you are on the old look, you will be auto-upgraded to the new look.
As mentioned above, the new look is a stepping stone for many more UX additions to follow. Having to support only the new look will help us expedite these UX enhancements and serve you better!
