This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit A-I-9773 Set public comments as the default view in new detail view redesign..

Commenting on ideas : New design is bad + causes more clicks to get the same done Merged

A new design was recently forcefully applied to Aha, and since then working with the platform is a nightmare

Actions that used to be simple are taking much more time now:

e.g. adding a (public) comment to an idea:

Before : available from the main idea screen

- click "comments"
- wondering why its empty.. realizing that public comments require to click on "public", so clicking on "switch to public comments"

- Instead of showing the comments field directly, I need to click on "add private comment"

When you have to do this over and over again you will realize that this is a bad design.
And no, as a customer I do not want to fix a bad design by having to fiddle aroudn with building my own custom design, how to build it or how to save & reuse it. I do expect the platform to be efficient + usable.

Even when building a custom design you can not show public comments directly. There only is a block "comments" that you can move around, but that doesnt change the fact that public comments are not directly displayed

    Thanks for the idea and expanding on your original idea you submitted recently.

    There is a similar idea to improve the access to public comments. I will merge your idea there so your vote is applied. This will help us understand all use cases as we determine a solution.
