Problem/Motivation

For Drupal 8 we wanted to improve the workflow of the "Content Manager" page and provide a solution by this first draft wireframe proposal.

The main issues that these wireframes try to solve are the following:

  • Clearer call to action for new content creation with direct selection of content type
  • Improve the bulk operations without cluttering the page
  • Filters should be hidden on mobile view
  • Icons for published and unpublished status
  • Reduce clutter on the page by hiding the actions per content row, only becoming visible when hover on the row
  • Display the filters as textual links, instead of form dropdowns, with the same behavior.
  • Provide a indication of how many items each filter represents in the list
  • Give the user the option to show (or hide) columns other then the default columns
  • Removed the breadcrumb trail since it doesn't seem to have any purpose on this screen
  • Clear indication of the table sorting and the active sorted column

This makes a lot of sense, however for process purposes it might be better to start of this discussion in http://groups.drupal.org/usability

Any reason to have this major?
