We’re very pleased with the feedback we’ve had on UpdraftCentral since it was launched. 11 months ago, one review read:

“Installs very easily. Intuitive to configure. Works really well. For something you have disclaimed as being new, just launched it puts many more established plugins to shame for quality and reliability.”

UpdraftCentral delivers everything it promises. But we wanted to make it even better.

Firstly, we came up with a couple of new features, which you can read about in more detail here. Tags will make it easier for you to organize and categorize remotely-managed websites. Analytics will
allow you to run useful analytics on your website data, giving you an instant overview of their KPIs.

Secondly, we are overhauling the design in order to give you a better UX. Here’s a sneak preview of some of the changes you’ll soon be seeing:

1.New Modal

We’ve come up with a new smarter, more user-friendly modal. It has an “advanced” tab option that can be easily switched back to “standard” without having to shut down the Modal altogether (see below):

2.Show/Hide backup feature

We’ve also designed a useful feature that makes website backup information more easily accessible, so that it can be displayed or hidden without extra reloading or navigation. Instead, simply click the new “select backup data” button, and you get an immediate quick overview of the backup status of a particular website (see below):

3.New Mobile Menu

We’re all using our mobiles more and more, not just to browse through websites, but also to work. That’s why we’ve designed a new and better mobile menu, with a dashboard designed to render well on smaller screens. Here’s the new design:

4.Sidebar Collapsibility

And finally, we have redesigned the side menu. The new design and code has enhanced the collapsibility of the sidebar making it work nicer, by not disappearing altogether like it currently does but instead collapsing to ‘icon view’ or expanding to ‘full menu’ view.

These small changes, combined with smarter and more intuitive design, are all intended with your convenience in mind. We want UpdraftCentral to be ultimately slick and easy-to- use.

We should be launching these changes within the next few weeks, so please feel free to let us know what you think!
