Geegeez Gold: Improving Your User Experience

Towards the end of last week, we introduced a couple of new UX elements. UX? Eh? Well, it’s techie speak for ‘user experience’, and relates to making things easier to access and/or navigate. As well as that pair, about which I’ll share more below, we also introduced a small but significant additional snippet type on trainer inline form.

The video below demonstrates each of these but, for those who prefer to read than watch, I’ve expanded on the new changes beneat the video.

 

Latest Geegeez Gold Changes

All / All Hcap Inline Trainer Snippet

Since we introduced the inline Sire Snippet two-year record, featuring an ‘All’ row that highlights the overall performance of the stallion in question, it has been a personal frustration that we have not been able to display the same information for trainers. Until now.

We’ve added two new inline Trainer Snippets, showing the two-year record for the trainer overall and, where relevant, in all handicaps. It can be found by clicking the Trainer Form icon on the racecard, and looks like this:

Report ‘Clear’ and ‘Show/Hide All Inline’

Moving on to usability upgrades, and we’ve added a couple of new buttons to the trainer, jockey and sire reports, as follows:

Clear Report Filters

Historically if you wanted to reset the filters on a report, you had to click in each ‘from’/’to’ box individually and set them to ‘Any’. Now it’s just a matter of clicking ‘Clear’. Simples…

Report ‘Show/Hide Inline’ Button

Another (former) frustration was that in order to review the inline content on reports, a user had to click each row individually; and click it again to close it. Not insurmountable but a slight pain the arse wrist.

We’ve corrected that with the introduction of the ‘Show / Hide Inline’ button. Now, with a single click you can open all rows (up to a maximum of 35), and one more click closes them again. Neat. And tidy. Your carpals are thanking you already!

Query Tool Filters

We’ve also taken some of that report output configurability and added it to Query Tool. Specifically, when grouping by an entity, for instance jockey, it can be frustrating to have to sift through a number of irrelevant rows where there is very little data. As of now, users may select parameters for their QT output… and clear those parameters with one click to return to the full set of data. Bang tidy, as the little people say.

Hope you like these small, but perfectly formed, changes – and that they enhance your enjoyment of Geegeez Gold.
