New dashboard and home page...

I really like the new dashboard and the options it gives you...I do think the home page looks a little chaotic, there's a lot going on there and it takes away attention from the featured records. I also miss the link to the recent recommendations on the home page.

Clicking on Browse takes you directly to Recent Recommendations which, personally, I prefer. I can now get to those records without having to go through the homepage (or whatever pages also have the side bar) first.

+I think the new dash looks pretty great!

- The main problem I can find is that the REmarks on my RECords don't actually say which RECords they're attached to, or even link to them. That's a pretty big thing that needs adjusting, I think.

- Also: RECs of my RECords list the date of the RECord, not the RECommendation. Not sure if that is deliberate or not, but I can't think of a reason why it would be?

- My activity stream is just one RECord that I REC'd about a year ago.

+ The Browse function works so well and is SO much easier & better than the main site browse.

- Still no link to the Conversations page.

Yes, we're working on fixing the problem with remarks not showing which record they are attached to.

We'll look into the date issue on recommendations, but yes, it should be the date of the recommendation and not the date of the record release.

Soupy is correct that "recent recommendations" has moved from the home page to Browse. It seemed more logical to group those "metric" categories (recently recommended, latest, greatest, etc.) under the idea of browsing, and separate them from the idea of Featured records and collaborations.

So when you land you see just the featured stuff, and then when you've seen that and are ready to browse around and see other stuff, you go to your dashboard or else to browse.

Yes I really like that 'browse' takes you directly to recent recs...I do think a clear link to recent recs and new records on the home page would be helpful for new users though. I personally like the way the old home page is set up...to me it's a lot clearer and it looks more organised. But that's just me...Besides the homepage, I really like the new dashboard and browser...
