Here's a list of some of the smaller details we shipped in December 2021.

  • You can now prevent a user from being able to summon the Editor via "open editor" by passing in a flag to the boot method.
  • Added a loading state to category headers while fetching results to show they are being actively searched. If you have fast search functions you might not notice these :)

New feedback modal

We redesigned the interface your users can use to give you feedback from CommandBar! Hopefully the fresher look makes it so fun to give feedback that your users give you even more :)

How can I turn this on? πŸ› 

By default, when a user's query does not return any search results, they are prompted to provide feedback. Additionally, at any point a user can click on the chat bubble icon in the bottom right of CommandBar to reach the feedback interface.

Editor re-design πŸ§‘β€πŸŽ¨

The Editor has a new look, with a new coat of paint on almost every scren. Beyond making the Editor look amazing, there are two core principles that guided this effort:

  1. Make the Editor more intuitive for new editors
  2. Make the Editor easier to use for those curating a lot of commands

Bunched in with this re-design, we changed the command detail view to make command settings easier to find and adjust. For example, some of our previously nestled settings (e.g., shortcuts) are now un-nested.

Open the Editor and take the new version for a spin. Let us know what you think!
