I’m wondering whether business banking users will get the new navigation this week? Might be just that I’m in a late batch for the update, but the post announcing the new navigation’s launch said that there were still some edits to do on the business banking side, so I’m wondering if those are a blocker still?
In case anyone else didn’t have time to read through ~300 messages:
Hey @duncang ! We’re working on the updates on the business banking side, and hoping to have everyone on the new navigation by the end of October!
Oh wow that’s longer than I had expected!
Hopefully we can get it across sooner, but we still have a few key updates to make before we can turn it on, just to make sure it’s working properly for everyone
It will be worth the wait, though!
Why the significant delay? Has the business team not been included in the discussions for the new navigation?
I’m curious as to what breaks for business users in the new nav as it currently stands, assuming that the new nav was built with multiple accounts in mind…
I’m just annoyed that I got kicked off the new nav when I opened my business account
Good question the new navigation was definitely built for scalability and multiple accounts, but the extra time for business accounts is to make some tweaks that ensure that everything is working properly for businesses. We’re building a new way for you to be able to switch “contexts” so that you don’t necessarily see all your business funds next to your personal funds (and vice versa). We also need to build in the entry points for any business account specific features that don’t exist on personal accounts (for example: integrations with accounting tools, partner perks, tax pots, etc)
The goal is that the new navigation supports business accounts as they grow too. So, you can see all your business money and pots in one place, and if you ever have multiple business accounts for the same business, you can see it in the same album view too (for example, many companies are required by law to separate out “client money” into a second account).
Spending a little more time on it right now makes sure that it’s stable and can continue to work properly as we add more features/functionality later!
