The Goals of the Redesign
Believe it or not, this is the first time the Rafflecopter admin dashboard has been fully overhauled since Rafflecopter launched into private alpha almost three years ago. So why the redesign now? Simply put: we needed some room to grow, and there’s a ton we want to improve. But as we built it, we held ourselves to the following rules to help ensure the change makes things better, not worse :)
- You should see very little change in your day-to-day workflow. Despite the changes, the dashboard’s navigation will be familiar to power-users, and also easier for first-timers to get the hang of.
- Things you do often should be more streamlined, and everything else should be out of your way until you need it. From improved organization to smoother navigation to faster load times, we worked on making sure you can do what you need to do quickly, and get on with life.
- Tablets are the new PCs. They’re fantastic, so creating & managing giveaways should work great on them as well. We redesigned with tablets in mind, so feel free to work from your recliner ;)
- There are some great things coming up around the bend (think expanded functionality & more ways to run giveaways). The new dashboard was designed to give us some space to grow and bring you much more awesomeness in the coming months. Stay tuned!
