    Looking good. The font in the left-hand panel is a little small, though.

    We Heard You, and We are Delivering, UI/UX Improvements!


    Many of you have requested that we modernize the Act-On  UI. We are happy to roll out to you an initial set of improvements that update the look and feel. These changes should not impact functionality. We invite you to explore the new UI and share your thoughts. This update is just the first step of many to refresh the look and user experience of our platform. Let us know what you think.


    Updated Fonts, Icons, and Navigation Bar Colors!



    Please note: University and Help have moved from upper right to lower left.

    I agree with Vicky:

    • Font on the left menu is small. I would suggest 14px minimum.
    • Color of background in combo with font color are IMO not easy to read. Plain black makes it more stand out.
    • Seeing which menu item is open is not that clear as in old setup. See attached image for possible suggestion.
    • (Why grey? I would love to see a more happy color!)

    I also noticed a 'best performing' option in the sent messages as a filter as a new feature. Is there anything else that has been changed/enhanced?

    Hi @Gina Azzarello. The 'Best Performing' filter is an existing feature: https://university.act-on.com/Product_Features/Reports/Sent_Email_Reports/02_Accessing_the_Sent_Email_Rollup_and_Best_Performing_Reports

    We didn't add any new features in last night's release.

    Thanks!​

    WOW! I never even knew it was there. With your new UI, I finally noticed it. I think before I thought it was just a header for that column.

    Would be great if we could choose to have the old ( dark ) or new Light UI.
    Personally I hate all the white, but this is something personal. 
    Fonts are also to small inside the navigation.

    Offering a theme choice is something we discussed @Luuk Ruijter! While we haven't ruled it out, we opted to focus on other areas we thought would provide more of a positive impact. I'm sorry we weren't able to achieve that in your case but your input is valued and thank you for sharing it.

    Can the side menu be a little more vertically condensed so there is not so much space between the menu items?

    Hi @Jacquelyn Lane, ​thank you for posting the question. Reducing the space between the menu items isn't something that was strongly considered but now I'm curious to know why you're asking. I'll follow-up with you in email. Thanks!

    Are there any plans to update the contact report? The old UI was a lot more user friendly and had the current view displayed on the tab. It also showed what the lead clicked on in the email. A lot of functionality was removed with the contact report update.
