WebUI Redesign Milestone 7 (Collaborate)


Product: Web UI Release Date: November 16, 2022.

Redesign of the WebUI - Milestone 7

With the commitment to delivering a best-in-class user experience to our customers, Egnyte has embarked on an ambitious and comprehensive overhaul of the entire UI. This is a multi-phased initiative, where first, the visual layer will be freshened up and modernized, and made consistent across the platform before rapidly moving on to introducing new page layouts and navigation for improved efficiencies.

For milestone 7, the Collaboration navigation is being updated such that platform level navigation will be in the top global header and product level will be moved to the left sidebar.  See more details here

The roll-out of milestone 7 will be performed in phases starting this week until the end of the year.


Use Microsoft Online Preview for Preview-Only Links

When a Microsoft Excel file is shared via a preview-only link and the recipient clicks on the link, the preview for the excel file is now rendered using Microsoft online previewer. This allows the user to use horizontal and vertical scrolling, as well as zoom into the spreadsheet. As always, the recipient is not allowed to download the file shared via preview-only links.

For more information on preview-only links, please see the helpdesk article - Preview-Only Links

This feature only affects preview-only links for Microsoft Excel files with extensions .xlsx, .xlsm, .xlsb, .ods, and .xls. Other files, including Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files, will continue to use the existing preview mechanism for preview-only links.
