We've heard from many scientists that Benchling, though powerful, can be difficult to navigate. We want to make it easier for you to stay organized as your projects grow and labs expand.
Over the past few months, we've been working to address these issues, and we're excited to announce the release of the Benchling Redesign! We're releasing this as a Beta version and will continue to make improvements over the coming weeks.
- Simplified Navigation. Your most important destinations and actions are now all in one place. Quickly navigate between the home screen and projects. Easily create files or search across Benchling. !(/content/images/2016/07/navbar_whitespace.png)
- Expanded Views. The calendar now lives in the expanded Home view, where you can see more details in the day, week, and month views. The expanded Projects listing simplifies bulk actions, such as moving several files or creating an alignment with multiple sequences.
