User interface improvements
As a part of this release, we did a lot of clean up work and introduced many changes in UI with the aim to make it even easier for our users and more consistent across different screens.
- Switching between “My tasks” and “Delegated tasks” is now easily accessible on the very left side of the screen.
- Switching between Active and Completed tasks is now on the right side for both Tasks and Processes.
- Switching between “My processes” and “All processes” is now on the left side and works similar to switching between My and Delegated tasks.
- “Start new process” button is now available on Processes screen.
