When we redesigned the website in 2012, there was a lot of time spent on the create/edit event page. This page is used by clients to create all of their events - it's the most heavily used page on the backend. As Flavorus grew and we add features, the create/edit event page got more complex. With that complexity came UI and technical challenges that made it harder to keep adding features and fixing bugs.
Clients shouldn’t need a manual to create an event. Software should make your life easier, not harder. We achieved this by taking the guess work out of choosing a delivery method. Flavorus offers many ticket distribution methods... we wanted to take the guess work out of that process for the client. We did this by changing the clients options to reflect the customers experience.
Editing the event should be easier as well. By adding quick links to the dashboard, the client jumps into the edit process in the exact spot they need instead of having to scroll on. It also allows us to set permission per section, which benefits larger clients with many employees.
One of the major added benefits to this new look is mobile. Forms can be complex and hard to manage on a mobile device; but with three short and sweet sections it seems more manageable. Load times should improve, error will be minimized, and it's easier to identify bugs.
