Minor cosmetic changes offer an improved user experience for Web app users
Did you know that HotSchedules has been around since 1999? That’s right! As the story goes, a couple of managers posted a web page to share their team’s schedule. Over the years that web page has grown into the HotSchedules Web and Mobile applications that you know and love. As with every great software application, there comes a moment when it needs a little cosmetic attention. Don’t worry – this user interface update won’t slow you down as you’re building that schedule – it will just look a lot prettier. Read on for a few of the key changes you will see in our Web app starting in September.
Colors and Fonts
Our product team has put quite a few hours into understanding how to offer a better user experience and colors and fonts have a lot to do with that. You will notice that the green is being replaced with a soothing blue and the typography is more modern and easier to read.
The tabs (Home, Scheduling, Forecasting, etc.) remain the same but now you will need to hover over each to see and access the next level of navigation.
New Messaging & Personal Preferences Tabs
Although the functionality of both these features remains the same, you will notice that the Preferences option under the Settings tab has been removed and you can find these features in the new Personal Messaging subtabs. As you can see, both screens have been redesigned for readability and an improved user experience.
Here’s a Tip!
Did you know that you can opt to use your preferred name instead of the name entered when your account was created (1), change your preferred HotSchedules home page (2), and/or set up Google Calendar syncing (3) all from the Personal Preferences tab?
