Continuing the discussion from How can the data density be improved?:
[quote=“kcase, post:39, topic:86”]
We’re very definitely listening, and the designs we’re trying to implement for 2.0 call for more data density and more contrast even in its current two-row-per-task layout.
We’re also looking at providing a compact one-row-per-task layout option for those who want it.…[/quote]
Now that our default layout has settled down into the state we want it to be in for the initial 2.0 release (more compact layout, more contrast, less noise from fields that aren’t relevant, and much easier to navigate with the keyboard), I think we’re finally ready to start thinking about how other layouts might look.
If you’d prefer to see all of your task information laid out in one line (so it’s more vertically compact) and would prefer your status circles on the left, you can start experimenting with this now by opening this URL:
After you launch the app, you should see something more like this:
To return to the default layout:
Some known issues off the top of my head with this prototype layout:
- When the window is narrow enough that text starts to wrap, the status circle and note icon should stay aligned with the top row of text in the task title. (Right now, the status circle floats to the center of the entire task, while the note icon floats to the bottom.)
- The flag icon which hangs off the corner of the status circle is pretty ridiculously small.
I’m sure there are more issues, but I’d love to hear from you all whether the fundamental layout changes are the sort of thing you’re looking for!
