Introducing our new simplified interface

Learning is an essential part of our daily work. We learn from our customers, we learn from our work and we iterate quickly based on that.

We heard from our early users that our initial UI could be complicated to understand, so we decided to simplify it. Here is how elastic.io dashboard looks like now:

Plain and simple. You might notice a button ‘Create new Recipe’ is gone as well as we renamed tasks into ‘flows’. Consequently adding new flow will be two-step, on the page you will define components of your flow, and the on the next page you will configure each individual component.

We hope you’re going to love our new simplified UI. We would be happy to hear from you what do you think about it.
