CrowdComms New CMS

An Introduction to our New CMS

The new dashboard is a complete rewrite of our existing, well-renowned content management system. The document below will outline what you can expect to see.

The new dashboard is currently in beta, meaning that although many hours of testing have gone in to it, there may still be some quirks here and there. If you find any, be sure to fill in the form in the top right of the CMS to leave your feedback!

It's important to note that the data is still the same between the existing and the beta dashboards. If you find something missing, you can always hop back to the existing dashboard to finish your task. All the data you've added on the new dashboard will be there!

To see a comparison in functionality between the existing and beta dashboards, skip to the table at the end of this document.

What's New?

Total Redesign

We gave our dashboard a much-needed lick of paint. Ranging from complete page redesigns (such as the activity feed) to granular improvements to the more minor elements of our app, such as form components, date pickers and much more. Although everything may look quite different, most things are still in the same place and should feel quite familiar.

The Highlights

  • app-wide redesign, with most elements receiving a makeover in appearance and usability.
  • Ergonomic organisation of elements
  • Improved UI elements such as forms, tables, date pickers, icon pickers, dropdown boxes and buttons
  • Total redesign of some pages, such as the activity feed.
  • Dark mode available
