Ci Workspace is rolling out so many features and updates this summer that we’re going to write a two-part post to tell you all about it. In Part 1, learn about all the updates to our Global Header, Workspace Preview area and avatars!
For a cleaner “crisper” feel, we stripped down the old header and went minimal. To reinforce your brand instead of ours, we removed the Ci logo when you enter a Workspace. Click the MediaBox and WorkSession icons to access the your most recent MediaBoxes and WorkSessions.
Former Global Header
NEW Simplified Global Header Bar
WORKSPACE PREVIEW AREA
WORKSPACE NAVIGATION DROPDOWN
Navigate between subfolders, or return to the top of your Workspace. You can also rename folders or create new folders and File Requests.
[PRO-TIP]: Shave time off of creating new File Requests by going into the folder you want files to be uploaded to, then use the dropdown menu and select New File Request. Files will automatically be uploaded to the pre-selected location.
Ci users told us that they wanted to see more files on one page. Our Design team, tossed out the pagination approach and enabled endless scrolling. Simply click Show More to feed more files into the Preview area.
USER AVATAR SETUP & MANAGEMENT
Set up a personalized avatar by clicking into your Manage Account page from the global Header bar. Go to the Account Profile tab and click Change to upload your custom avatar image from your desktop, or use an image in your Workspace.
We understand how important brand identity is – we’re a Sony company after all. To appease the most discerning “Brand Police,” we enabled a new avatar tool complete with pixel guidelines, cropping tool and an avatar preview!
Teams (People) coming together to in a shared space (Workspaces) are what make Ci tick. To differentiate people from Workspaces, we tweaked our avatars to emphasize the distinction.
Square Avatars for WORKSPACES vs. Circular Avatars for USERS
