We have a jira ticket (XWIKI-19217) about creating an inbox view for our notifications. I would like to present here a version of this inbox for discussion.
- This ticked impact directly on the discussion we are having on the notification central, so I took that proposal and made some changes here. In case we choose to do not go through this one, then that version should be used as implementation reference.
- As always I would like to reiterate that these images are mockups only.
One of the problems pointed in the ticket is the use of space on the notification center (bell icon) so a separate page would help us to alleviate the problem and organize the features better with additional screen space.
Proposal for the main view:
This of course would change the proposal of the notification central to be more light, with fewer features but quicker to navigate. Also, only new notifications would be shown here
Features moved to the inbox that were here originally:
- detailed view
- load more notifications
Note that navigation to the object of the notification is still available, doing so would automatically mark the object as “read”
The flow of these screens would be the notification central being a gate to the complete list of notifications in the inbox, allowing the user to quickly glance at new notifications without being overwhelmed with a lot of options and features right away.
Check the video below about what I mean.
So tell me, what do you think about it?
