There’s a feeling of excitement at KHub HQ at the moment – and it’s not just because we’re all looking forward to what Santa is going to bring us in a few weeks’ time! We are also extremely excited to announce that coming soon in 2017, we will be releasing a new version of Knowledge Hub built using Liferay's new Digital Experience Platform (DXP)…
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be running a series of blogs sharing some of what you can expect from our new look Knowledge Hub and the benefits you can gain from DXP. In this first blog, we’re previewing some important elements of our new look and feel.
Improvements based on your feedback
Towards the end of last year and over the first part of this year, we spent time talking to you – our Knowledge Hub members – about what you like and dislike about the platform. We ran a survey, some focus groups and one-to-one interviews with a range of people to find out about your experience of using Knowledge Hub. We even asked some of you to share your designs of what you thought a new home page should look like.
While there was a lot of positive feedback, you also shared some of your frustrations. This has been really helpful in aiding us to modernise and upgrade the Knowledge Hub.
3 key changes
Here are three key things that are going to change about the look and feel of Knowledge Hub, based on what you told us…
- You said: The current navigation is confusing – sometimes it’s difficult to understand where we are in the site.
What’s new? Clearer, easier navigation with contextual menus depending on where you are, so you don’t get lost.
- You said: The pages are really busy and there’s loads of unnecessary text.
What’s new? Simple, clear use of icons and hover text, plus better use of the space on the page will make for a slicker experience.
- You said: We’d like a better KHub mobile experience please.
What’s new? The use of a clever new piece of software means that we can provide you with a much more consistent experience of Knowledge Hub no matter whether you’re using a desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone.
Keep an eye out on our blog over the next few weeks for more sneak previews and news on what’s changing.
