Ok, so when they unveiled Kinetic two years ago, I thought, “Pretty klugy looking home page, why not just write it to resemble what was there, only it will work faster.”
I keep away from the Active Home Page as much as I can, it still is very juvenile looking to me, and functionality is the same. It is like they are re-writing the application bit by bit and have completely new 20 year old programmers who never used the software before, designing it to dumb it down.
EDD, Great tool, but you can use the Web Page for that, and maybe I just leave the Active Home Page for the couple of execs who just want to login and see a dashboard with their targeted graphs, ok cool.
Now in 10.2.400, I see the Scheduling Boards are re-written in Kinetic, and while these always needed a performance upgrade, what a train wreck.
Very un-impressed, zero information displayed like before, way too many drill-down clicks and double-clicks to select things, hidden feature buttons instead on the toolbar, and “Show More” hyperlinks than needed. Wow, what a downgrade and apparently to me, written by someone who never used it before.
Performance of making changes seems faster, as it should, but if you spend more time drilling and clicking to see the data, then what is the point?
IMHO, Kinetic = Pathetic
So now that I thought I could just retain the application screens and more classic interfaces, now they ARE replacing them bit by bit with Pathetic. Sadness…
End of rant… lol
