We’re making a few changes to the HubSpot Dashboard soon, and we wanted to give you a sneak peek at what’s on tap. It's almost been a year since we first launched the new HubSpot Dashboard, so it's due for a bit of a design refresh. This new design is currently in beta testing with about 150 of our awesome customers, and once we’ve put the finishing touches on things, we’ll be rolling it out to all customers in the coming weeks.
Design Consistency With New Content, Contacts, and Reports Apps
We've been busy rolling out new applications across the product in the past year, so it only makes sense that we’d give the Dashboard a bit of an update to bring it in line with our new design standards. The various module titles, graphs, and table structures should look familiar, as they will now be consistent with the style that our new applications use. This not only makes the product look nicer, but also helps us develop a better product faster since we can use common elements across the product.
Prioritization Of The Most Used Modules
The most used module by far on the HubSpot Dashboard is the Traffic and Leads module. In contrast, the Recent Activity section gets relatively little activity, yet it’s been living right at the top of the Dashboard. After watching these trends and getting feedback from customers, we are retiring the existing Recent Activity module and pulling the Traffic and Leads module to the top where it belongs. We are working on a replacement to the Recent Activity module that should be available in the near future.
App Listing Quick Links
A key new feature of the new HubSpot Dashboard design is the full app listing along the right column. This will provide a clear path to specific applications directly from your Dashboard.
As always, please let us know what you think in the comments. We will continue to iterate on the Dashboard to make it even more useful and look very closely at your feedback to make these decisions.
