Hi Stackers,

I am reviewing the current difficulties of openstack users in using the Horizon Interface. Since horizon is the primary level interaction with the user. Can you all suggest me with the exact need of change required ? Any kind of change that you require in the existing Horizon will be appreciated. Please post your comments below. Major points focused :

  1. Current difficulty in the user interface model (mandatory)
  2. A kind of change you expect (optional)

Thank you for spending your valuable time in responding for my request.

For reference, a few wonderful UX designers have joined the project in the last few months and are working to improve the UX both for new features and improve the existing. For instance:

I encourage anyone interested in helping or making suggestions to reach out to the UX team ( at the moment though a move is planned), file UX bugs and generally let the community know about the pain points. Thanks!

Having an easy access to documentation through Horizon would definitely help. If most of the Web manuals could be installed and easily accessed through the Web interface, it would have speed-up my tasks (in my humble opinion).

Apart from that, Horizon is quite responsive and well organized, in my humble opinion (at least for the basic tasks I did until now). So, I do not have any other "bright" idea... :-)
