    Hello everyone,

    As you have probably noticed already, we released some style changes to our:

    • Full page editor
    • Quick-detail or side panel editor

    This release does not contain any functional changes.

    Here are some key areas that the design changes are improving:

    • Differentiate editors from the rest of our pages in the application since they have a different function
    • Color contrast improves findability of certain functions
    • Buttons were regrouped by similar functions and in logical ways
    • Improved screen real estate
    • Improved discoverability of drag & drop for fields 
    • Improved discoverability of quick detail editor drag handle

    The screenshots below visually highlight some of these changes.

    We addressed the following two issues yesterday:

    • name field not showing the proper background color when a new work item was being created
    • Other fields bleeding through drop-down field lists

    We hope you like our new editor styles.

    Please reach out if you have any questions.

    Best,

    Andrea & The Rally Product Team

    I really like the new Editor screen. Since I've been working from home the past two months and using a smallish laptop screen, I especially appreciate the extra real estate on the screen. Well done!
