  • Increased dashboard personalization.With the implementation of Redwood, the personalization of the dashboard is now far more flexible with dynamic sizing supported at runtime and configuration of location at startup. These dynamic settings are persisted across sessions.
  • Mouse mileage reduction.One of the key features of the Redwood design philosophy is efficiency. One of the key measures is how much users move their mouse to get their work done, also known as Mouse Mileage. Over time the screens and layouts are being designed to reduce the amount of effort to move the mouse across the screen to reduce time and increase efficiency. For example, the position of the dashboard is flexible to allow it to be position in a way to reduce mouse mileage.

The new user experience supports insight visualizations that allow data to be expressed visually as badgesinlinelists, and cards. These allow your users to recognize key data and react appropriately to interactions with that data. The new Tree object allows configuration of hierarchies of data which is more dynamic.
  • Domain Name support.The implementation of the Redwood allows for a badge to be added to the top of the screen to indicate the domain the user is in. This is useful for distinguishing different environments used in your implementation. This replaces the old technique of replacing graphics with a simpler and consistent environment identifier method.
