Navigation and Structure
The visual design aligns closely to the tablet UI that was released in late 2018. For engineering reasons, we oped to keep the sidebar navigation that is present in early Unison tool. We considered the possible latency that would occur if data were loaded when a user made a selection and opted instead for the "Update Filters" button.
As with the previous dashboards, users can click the "Help" icon to get detailed information about what a particular metric means. We heard time and time in our research and conversations that it matters less what the metric means and more that its definition is extremely clear.
We learned from conversations with vendors that access to raw data is preferred, as it is extremely flexible to use. The Reports page lets vendors download the reports that are generated weekly.
