CrowdComms New CMS

An introduction to our new CMS

The new dashboard is a complete rewrite of our existing, renowned content management system. The document below will outline what's new, what's different, and what's not there.

The new dashboard is 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 dashboard and the beta dashboard. This means that if you find something is missing, you can always hop back to the old dashboard to finish your task. All the data you've added on the new dashboard will be there!

For a summary of what's missing and what's changed in the new dashboard, 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 full page redesigns (such as the activity feed), to granular improvements to the smaller 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 so should feel quite familiar.

  • App-wide redesign, with most elements receiving a makeover in appearance and usability.
  • Everything is mostly in the same place, but organised more ergonomically.
  • Improved UI elements such as forms, tables, date pickers, icon pickers, dropdown boxes and buttons
  • Total redesign of some pages such as activity feed.
  • Dark mode available.

A collection of new features and improvements revolving around the image library, we've added some extra functionality to make the image library the useful asset that it should be.
