The Navigation Changed!

Yes, yes it did. But only a little.

We found out recently that users were having a hard time getting back to the main dashboard page after they had navigated away. We had originally designed the navigation to have the Coordinatr logo return back to the dashboard page, and had assumed that was clear to everyone else.

It wasn't. Sorry...our bad!

We had users commenting that they saw the dashboard once and then never again. In order to correct that little logic flaw, we've implemented an extra navigation option: the home link. Use it any time you want to get back to the dashboard, or "home".

While we were at it, we figured we'd make some more tweaks to the navigation. We now have submenus for each section. By clicking the name of a section in the navigation bar, you're brought to the main page of that section. You can then use the submenus to navigate within that section. The drop down menus are still available by clicking on the drop down arrows next to each section name, in case you want to skip directly to a page in a different section of the site.

Some slight tweaks were also made to font sizes, colors, positioning etc., across the site. Explore and let us know if you like the new changes!

One more thing...we're looking to roll out a big site feature very soon. Keep an eye out for it!
