What makes UI so important in a CMS?
With every new release of Sitefinity version, there are some significant changes that are introduced to the interface so that it enhances the user experience. With rich functionalities been added to Sitefinity CMS over the past few years, the interface has gotten somewhat a little cluttered with varied components and this has made it very overwhelming for the content creators. A wide variety of elements often distract the users and also limits the writing space to a great extent.
The new Sitefinity UI hides all the redundant elements like additional functions, navigations, filters and many more to make more space for the content and each screen focuses on a single primary task which is content creation.
It is very important to offer good and high quality content to have a good engagement with your customers. But with huge amounts of content generated, it is a difficult task for the users to find exactly what they need in the ocean. Having the right content served to your customers will help to enhance their experience and Sitefinity CMS takes care of it. And the Digital experience cloud makes the marketers successful as they can analyze the customer behavior through the journey.
All the secondary functions are now hidden under the sidebars and menus and are only available on demand. This helps to place the desired content on the center stage and enhance readability.
To gain simplicity, Sitefinity UI was transformed into modern day UI components where the visual hierarchy was created and rich interactions helped to increase productivity. Now the content editors could use new functionalities and contextual toolsets that created a spacious design and also accommodated more content.
