We are updating the Wave user interface to provide a simpler and more intuitive user experience.
Why are we changing the Wave user interface?
During a period of several months, we collected and reviewed extensive Wave user feedback, which helped identify areas of the user interface that could be further simplified. We believe that with these updates, all users will have an enhanced user Wave experience
When will I see the updates?
Wave will be automatically upgraded on at the end of February 2020
What is changing?
Dashboard and Workbook Navigation
The blue navigation bar will be removed to maximize the data viewing space. Navigation between the dashboard and workspace will found on to the top bar, providing a more accessible and faster way to move between the two spaces. Workspace has also been renamed Workbook to better reflect its function
Faster Access to Secondary Pages
The links to Data Connections, Settings, About, and Log Out have been relocated from the blue side bar to a menu that can be accessed by clicking on the kebab icon in the upper right corner
Help remains accessible by clicking on the help icon in the upper right corner
Simplified Control Panel
All control panel icons will be on the same row. A blue background will highlight which panel is open
Icons in Breadcrumbs
Quickly identify a view's custom settings with icons embedded into the breadcrumbs across the top of the view
View Selector and Tree Icon
The view selector and tree structure icons will be switched, and the tree icon will only show when applicable to the selected view
Refreshed Color Palette and Logo
