  • Screensize Tile arrangement

    The menu, which comes with the latest update, leads into having less space on the dashboard.
    Thats bad, because my nicely arranged 4 tiles in a row become to 3. Now it is more or less a scroll-board rather than a dashboard.
    My workaround is to use the zoom-feature from Firefox.
    But: It is not responsive, so I have to refresh the page (F5) afterwards.
    Selecting my second dashboard (one just for running & stuff, one with all fitness/step/challanges) needs several clicks in the menu (before it was a single one).
    If now, the menu does not slide back fast enough, the second dashboard will be in 3 columns as well. Which leads into another refresh, which mostly effectuate that my calendar left blank.

    So instead of navigating to Garmin Connect and click once to change the dashboard, it now takes a bit longer:
    1. Reduce zoomfactor in Firefox
    2. Refresh by F5
    3. Hovering the menu
    4. Unfold the dashboards
    5. Click on my desired dashboard
    6. Try to be fast enough to leave the menu with the mice, to prevent messing the tiles up
    7. messing the tiles up
    8. Refreshing by F5
    9. Empty calendar
    10. Refreshing by F5

    In the meaning of simplicity, it becomes "slightly" worse. It seems to me, that you want to force people away from using dashboards. Like in the past forcing them to use it
    I use the page on several computers and the resolution is not the same everywhere, neither is the browser in fullscreen (I think that has been forgotten designing the new forum design and Connect)

    What I?d like to get repaired:
    Menu not affecting the Dashboard, when it is not "pinned". It?s size should be subtracted or it should be on a layer above the dashboard.
    My wish:
    Bring back the single clickable dashboards.
    My dream:
    Considering first, what such an update means to the former users. Not everyone has a fullscreen browser on a 24" external monitor
    Features and updates should make things better, not worse

    I dont know if I was heard a bit.
    The alignment behaviour has got better! Thank you for that Everything seems more responsive and the tiles auto-arrange after changing the zoom or hiding the menu.

    Reduces my everyday amount of clicks a lot
