It’s not very tidy to show release notes to ALL users after an update (same applies to notifications of new versions). It’s horrible UX for users in an admin office to log in and be faced with a message telling them about new changes in the Agriculture, Education, Non-Profit modules etc… These notifications should be limited to System Managers only at most
A global product like ERPNext should be concerned about User Experience. Please help fix this asap
even further all module related items for non-selected items should not appear in any scenario. Example in customize form, modify print format, party type, etc. see extraneous stuff from education, agriculture, etc. add no value just overhead and confusion
Our user base don’t mind this at all. They understand the nature of the project, and how updates work (and they are not technical people at all).
Taste is a relative thing, starting to brand the user experience as horrible and the worst problem frankly shows a gross under appreciation for the project. For goodness sake, if you don’t like it, change the code, or pay someone to do it, or submit a report, as @wale has done. The devs should not pander to your whims and fancies at a moments notice.
If a project like ERPNext has to succeed, it needs to engage with users more and make them aware of the open-source origins of the project.
When users are more empowered to raise issues, some of them may feel it worth their time to contribute to ERPNext by pushing a fix. The release notes are a good way to remind the users of the natures of the system.
However if it is very important to some users, there can be setting which disables this notifications for all users.
I’d have to disagree. Reminding users of the Open Source origins of the project has nothing to do with showing them Release Notes of stuff they have no business with! It only causes unnecessary distractions and a not-very-nice user experience. If however, there’s a switch provided, users can decide if they want to keep this funny behavior or not
