Yeah, we should probably keep things simple at first, and we can add in explorer filters in later on once we are settled with other stuff.


Windows explorer has a similar grid for search results, and make a separate column for folder path, something to consider…




Also, we use colon as a separator, which might not be the first choice, but might be confusing if it is displayed as a slash in certain places.


If we don’t like colon, we could use images…  unless that is bad for accessibility etc

Thanks for all the feedback today on the UI wireframes. Extremely helpful. Just after the call, I had an idea for an even simpler version of the left column. This one eliminates the need for a "Filter" or "Show" dropdown, and allows the Explore Tree to serve a single purpose - browsing the entire folder structure.


In this version, a "My Groups" quick link takes the user to a separate screen with two tabs for both "Groups I Can Manage" and "My Memberships", both of which were previously filters. Favorites and My Services would have similar behavior. What I like about this version is the very prominent link to "My Groups," which I think will be appreciated by novice users. This approach also allows for more room to clearly display the full path to each of the listed Groups.



Unless I hear strong opposition, I think I'll try testing with this approach.
