We Redesigned Gravity's UI
We are excited to announce that Gravity has launched our new UI! After a few months of serving our users with a simple functional interface we felt it was time to streamline the onboarding for new users and day-to-day workflows for our existing customers.
When Gravity launched last June we knew from years of using our product internally as a part of Avora what the basic functionality needed to be and didn’t spend a huge amount of time on design because we wanted to get it in front of our customers. As we approached the end of 2021 and had more user on the platform moving billions of rows of data per month we knew we enough insights from usage to inform improvement. We’ll share more about the redesign process in a separate post so stay tuned. Some of the key highlights are outlined below.
When first logging in you will land on the Syncs page, a sync is a connection between a Source and a Destination. In the past, this information lived in two separate pages, Home and Jobs, but it’s now combined to you can see all your Syncs and their performance in one place. If it’s your first time, you will see a link to the getting started guide on the left side and a button to create your first sync. We wanted to make it super easy and intuitive to get your data moving quickly.
Once you click to create a Sync you can choose from existing authenticated Source and Destinations or add new ones.
Once you have set up a Sync you can now set up Jobs associated with that connection. We make this easy to do with our bulk set-up workflow where you can set up all the endpoints from an API or tables in a database.
Once jobs are set up and running you can see the performance across all of your jobs for that sync.
If we click on the Job level we can see the details of the job including the live execution steps and history. This helps to see details of rows imported and to see what’s happening in real-time.
Once you have your Syncs and Jobs set up you can see all their aggregate performance on the Syncs page.
As before we have detailed logs available on the Logs page, the basic layout hasn’t changed here but we’ve refreshed the look and feel. You can filter based on the Job name, Source, Status or Destination to find the logs you are looking for.
We have some more exciting updates we’ll be announcing in the next couple of weeks so please stay tuned!
