The new annoyances maybe small for some, but to us they’re completely illogical.
First thing you learn is that if you invent one more click for the user, he’s angry because
you’re making his work harder. So here we are now.
Why do we have to click on a menu first to open the shortcuts we need ALL THE TIME.
And why only 3 Quicklinks? Please the the user decide how many quicklinks he want’s
or even better just move the quicklinks to menu IF the browserwidth is too small for all icons.
Now there’s an almost empty menubar with only 3 icons which makes no practical sense at all.
I mean where’s the “clutter” in having 6 or 7 icons on a full hd monitor. It does NOT come handy.
Quickreply: Probably the most used answering method. Everyone loved it and it should have been
further enhanced. For example by showing all quick replies in a conversation/chat like way.
The popup reply windows are fine and good, but they have nothing to do with the quick replay and
they’re certainly not a replacement. Because with quick reply I had no signature and I could prevent
the monstrous mails with all the replies and the reply to replies.
Now we’re back where we’ve started. If you don’t want a signature for “quick replying” you have
to remove the signature first. Which of course the other team member doesn’t and here
we go again with emails that are too long, existing mostly of signatures.
So please OX, consider the quick reply not as obsolete because you could replace them, because
you didn’t. You took away a really good feature. Click in the text, write, fire. That was so simple and
made life so much easier when working in teams.
