What challenge are you facing?
Our team uses concourse heavily. We currently have 41 pipelines (and that's after removing a number of them recently). We regularly have to monitor several of these pipelines concurrently, as we are responsible for regularly shipping patches to 4 versions of 4 products. Each of these pipelines are large. For example, here's a typical one (of these 41) pipelines that has ~80 jobs split into ~10 pipeline groups:
Before, upgrading to 4.0, there was a sidebar with our ~40 pipelines so when we were viewing one, we could relatively easily navigate to another. Now, we have to go back and forth to the dashboard, which is much more cumbersome.
Using high density mode does make things a little better, but it still requires one to go back and forth quite a bit, or to keep a tab open and remember to open new pipelines in new tabs...
A Modest Proposal
Please bring back the persistent sidebar menu in some form so that we can navigate from one pipeline to another with a single click, regardless of where we are in the hierarchy of the UI.
Bring back the sidebar proposal
@mcwumbly something like this?
Do you think it make sense to display the groups at this level? It could be collapsed away and then the user expands a keeps them persistent.
given that i'm viewing a pipeline-scoped page
given that i have the sidebar open and some teams expanded,
@Lindsayauchin how about tooltips for long team/pipeline names? Might as well get that in before release, as I can imagine some users who consistently have long team names who will find a 275px sidebar unusable.
Also as I play with this feature I find myself craving a keyboard shortcut to toggle the sidebar. @vito
