Basic Layout Thoughts

We created first drafts of the application layout for Tine 2.0 . We try to keep productivity and ease of use in balance.

As we are discussing and rethinking a lot of basic conceptual ideas with Lars and Nelius at the moment I started to illustrate some of them with a first draft of the addressbooks list view mode.

Addressbook_layout.

There are a few areas with slight different functions / objects then thought and documented in the Tine-Wiki here before: the former “application accordion” would work more like a sidebar which will give you access to certain views and folders. The toolbar will have a fixed area for common tasks which should be always available as well as a changeable sector for ribbon-like toolbar-buttons. And we have of course some nice ideas for the application view itself. More insights to come soon… comments always welcome!
