After almost 5 years, we are calling it curtains on the iconic desktop interface of Frappe / ERPNext
While we all love the familiar iOS-like view, other than the familiarity and a dash of colour, it did not add much value. For users new to ERPNext, it did not offer any hierarchy or structure to understand ERPNext.
One of the biggest feedback we get from new users is that ERPNext “overwhelming” and one of the reason for that is the lack of a clear “information hierarchy” in the product.
The new proposal which will be merged in version 12, will have a hierarchical navigation and the desktop icons will be retired.
Here is a preview:
The new structure will also be embellished with dashboards, and we will keep adding some action on it.
I know a lot of people will be disappointed with this shift, but we have to move forward!
We will keep you updated on the new “home” design as it progresses. https://github.com/frappe/frappe/pull/6821
