We’re excited to announce that we’ll be launching a redesign of the QuickBase Blog tonight, July 23, 2012. We’re all about getting you the tools you need to get your job done, whether that’s advice on how to be a better manager or software for making your business process hum. This redesign is going to help you get to your solution faster by making articles easier to find, eliminating clutter, and including more advice on your toughest challenges.
To make these changes, we’ll be taking the blog offline this evening for up to an hour between 6:30 and 8:30PM EST. So come check out the new design tomorrow morning!
Here’s how we’re improving your experience of our blog:
Get on The Fast Track
The most significant improvement is that our title is changing to, “The Fast Track.” We want to capture the professional aspirations of our readers while staying true to our productivity roots. We want to help you achieve your loftiest careers goals and master the day-to-day where time is your scarcest resource. We believe our new title reinforces that mission.
When you have a challenge, you need a solution yesterday. That’s why we’re simplifying our navigation to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. All categories are located on the top-level navigation bar and any article can be found by doing a quick search.
An Unobstructed View
Our content is why you come to this site. So we’ve moved it to front and center by clearing out some of the surrounding clutter. Now there is only one rotating featured post, no more social buttons beneath each post, and a cleaner right-hand column with only the essentials.
More of a Good Thing
We’ve been listening to our readers and have learned more about the challenges you face on the job. In addition to leadership, productivity, collaboration, and QuickBase news, we’ve added sections on management, change management, apps to make you more productive, and communication.
Here’s a peek at the new look and feel:
We’re excited to be bringing you a more effective and enjoyable experience! As always, feel free to leave feedback.
