Redesign of the WebUI - Milestone 2


Product: Web UI Release Date: May 25, 2022.

Redesign of the Web UI

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.

Separate Defaults for Folder Move and Copy

Earlier, for Folder Move and Copy operation, there was a single default value:


With this release, a change will be gradually introduced so that the defaults for Folder Move and Folder Copy operations will be separated:


The separate default action for Folder Move will be the same as the old action for Folder Copy & Move. The separate default action for Folder Copy will be set to "Apply Destination Permissions" with the "users can override the default value" checkbox ticked (unless the original value for the joint action was "Apply destination permissions" with the "users can override the default value" checkbox cleared - then the original value will be set for both actions).

Key Issues Addressed

An issue was resolved to log audit events when previewing files in Preview-Only Folder links.

Unable to Paste Email Addresses when Requesting Files from Others (Upload Links)
