I’ve downloaded this and run some basic visual tests using my desktop, an iPad2 and a Nexus4. I know that this is a work in progress so these are just observations. I’ll have a chance to dig a bit more at the weekend.
On the desktop the theme renders well for me unless the ‘Display actions within menus’ is unchecked. Then it looses its feel.
On the Nexus the mobile menu appears. One suggestion here is that the search bar is moved to the top. For mobile users perhaps the convenience of global search will be more appealing than wading through the menus.
On the iPad the point at which the menu changes from desktop to mobile needs to be adjusted slightly as it doesn’t quite kick in leaving the menu doubled up. Screen space of course is valuable on a tablet.
In general I very much like the left hand menu bar. The complete set of recently viewed items makes good sense. As does moving the Create new record button. I always felt that the small plus sign in the corner was just too obscure. It may be worth considering a show hide on this to maximise desk space.
One of the things I would like to see is perhaps moving the ‘admin’ button from the users sub menu. The main reason for this is the extra clicks when wanting to access the administrators section. I have often found myself ‘editing my record’ instead.
I’m also a fan of being able to click on a menu item and going where I want to be. Rather than the extra click just to get down the list. Although I appreciate that it’s just a matter of practice, it was for sure a big ‘end user’ niggle when I rolled out SuiteCRM. (If that’s all they had to moan about then we have all done something right).
The recently viewed section on the menu items is a big plus too.
I like this theme and where its going. My users don’t like having mobile apps and for me its just another layer of admin headache to support.
