Don't add new pipelines to the selected list.

    Hi Tyrel,

     thanks for your feedback. The reason a pipeline is currently added to personal lists is that, following other feedback we got in the past, many people are not aware a new pipeline has been created if it doesn't show up in the list.

    Being able to order, search and save lists of pipelines is part of the UI/UX refresh work we've been doing lately (you might have noticed little changes in the dashboard look and feel with Go 13.1). It's a long running stream of work and we are planning on releasing improvement steadily rather than change the dashboard completely overnight.

    Thanks again

    Marco

    Marco -

    Perhaps providing an option at the admin level to add new pipelines to a view automatically or not would solve the issue for both camps?  We are adding so many new pipelines that the original (personal) view someone may have selected very quickly becomes cluttered and has to be redone every so often.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Jason,

        indeed that's the preferred approach. Still exploring whether to make it n admin-level option or a user-level option, don't want to make it too convoluted either way, should be simple and straightforward.

    Hey Marco,

    I have noticed some changes, but I do still find myself having to deselect pipelines when I log back into GO after a day or two.  As we get more and more pipelines, it takes longer to scroll to the bottom of each environment list, deselect the new pipelines added and then on to the end of the next environment list.  I agree that if pipelines are being added automatically, then having them sorted by order added works best.  I guess a simple user preference would be nice though.  I can then choose if I want this behaviour or not.

    Saving a list of pipelines would be useful for people who work on different projects.  Almost like a channel favorites list on your DVR at home.  The benefit I see there is I could create a new list for a product I am working on and make that my selected pipeline list.  Then the main list can still work as today, but I could choose to select a favorites list that has the pipelines I need.

    Thanks,

    Tyrel

    Hi Tyrel,

        we haven't released any real improvements yet on that front so please don't think the little changes you've seen are "it". We are working on it!

    The overall UI of GO is clunky and hard to use. There is MUCH room for improvement. Please get that new stuff mentioned here in April released already!!

    Hi Chris,

                it would be helpful to get some more details on top of "clunky": what do you find hard to use? how much is due to discoverability and how much lack of features? Also please provide some more details about your setup (Go version and, importantly, browser used).

    You'd be surprised to know many people actually consistently give us feedback about how much simpler and nicer the UI is than other tools they used in the past. We are often surprised as well, de gustibus! :-)

    As you know we do agree that there is a lot of scope for improvement though it mainly has to do with UX rather than UI.

    Thanks

    Marco

    The pipeline list is terrible. You can't filter it. The "Personalize" button doesn't let you filter so it's just a pain to select / deselect pipelines from display. Also, the Pipeline lists don't sort alphabetically so you have to use the "find text in page" feature of the web browser to find a specific pipeline. You guys really need to polish the UI of GO to make it look more like a commercial product rather than an internal, one-off tool.

    the feedback is valid, I'd just appreciate a different tone, many of your posts come across a bit rude.

    Thanks

    I'm not trying to be "rude." I'm just pointing out my opinion about your software. I can't help if the truth hurts...

    sorry, rudeness is in the the way the feedback is given rather than the feedback itself so no, it's definitely not about  truth that hurts (as replied to the many posts you've done on this single topic: we agree)

    Hi Marco,

    There seems to be some unintentional tension created. For this I apologize. I am merely trying to give feedback to help you improve your product. If I really did hate your product then I wouldn't even bother posting in the first place. GO is a great product overall and I've seen it ease many pain points related to projects I've worked on.

    I really do look forward to the release of any UI / UX enhancements you have in the works!

    Thanks Chris, appreciated.

    We really do agree with the feedback and are working on it (and many other improvements). Yesterday I sent you an email to the address you used to register here proposing to do a quick video call since face to face beats forum/email every time and I'm sure the medium was getting in the way.

    The offer is always valid, now and in the future.

    Regards

    Marco
