A more organised Modules Page, building from the current Explore page.

Kept Badges as they were because they serve the function of 'click to show open count'.

We @frappe propose to make this the desk view by default, replacing the desk and desktop icons. This will solve the hierarchy structure for the app and make it easier for users to find their way about.

While ideally, it will solve many navigational issues, what does everyone who uses desktop icons think? IMHO it will require plenty of change in habit/muscle memory for them. The current desk also serves as a frequently-used-items-that-I-don't-have-to-navigate-to-or-type-in-awesome-bar view for them.

Initially, to make the transition smooth, we could have both views to exist and simply add an option to select what view the user wants to be the default desk. The default view will be the new modules view, but they can switch it back to the old one. We will deprecate the desk at a point soon enough, though.

I think people like having shortcuts for the things they do often, so let's not take away that entirely. I think removing the desk is a step backwards in UX.

Also, opening ERPNext and instantly looking at all of the modules will be quite intimidating! Users are not like Developers, we're used to being hit by tons of info, Users would rather have as few options as possible.

I like this new format very much. (In fact last week I designed a similar one for our users.) The current version does have a slight familiarity for users because they look like the apps on their phones, but the "buttons are very similar, the colors don't have any intuitive meaning and the graphics are duplicated. In my version, I did some grouping around larger "buttons" and added text links to let the user dive deeper and quicker.
I endorse a change in this direction.

Hi @pratu16x7 , I also fully agree with the replacement of the Desk. While some users may like it, I receive a lot of negative feedback about it.
I think it may just be a little outdated...

The new module view is great! Thanks for your work!

In terms of UX, the challenge is to be able to make a nice and easy navigation system. Maybe the common used links or users selected links could be available from the module view in replacement of the Desk (in a side panel or floating button ?). @vjFaLk is right about having to provide just the right amount of data to the end user... making complex things simple is very difficult !

Module icons don't seem to be showing like they do in the screenshot

How about we add a section called Shortcuts in the modules page at the top?
If a user is using something frequently and isn't acquainted with awesome bar (there's many of these), one click is better than two.

The desktop (The Modules) does not have indicators counter? Because it will be needed to know how many pending task for each module.

In my opinion: The iconic desktop (the desktop old look) is better look than new look, but the new look for each module (having 3 sections instead of 2 sections) is better than old look.

One more problem: if I selected the module (CRM for example), and then I need to select the Account Module, I should go back to the desktop modules? Because I do not see the sidebar !
