During this weeks UX meeting we explored what it would mean to redesign the core Field UI. It’s definately in need of an update.
Currently all mashed together in a couple of tabs on Field UI:
- Data modelling – Define data types and storage formats for individual fields & their relationships
- Content modelling – Compiling individual fields into appropriate content (entity) types and configuring the input form for creating content items
- Display modelling – Configuring different ways to display these created content items
One of the first steps towards a new and improved user interface for Field UI would be to unbraid these different types of tasks. Take it apart and put it together again in more user friendly ways.
Would be nice to kick this off with some kind of (virtual) UX design sprint, no?
