A newly designed community administration console is available with the 2015.3 release. The primary goal of this redesign was to create a simplified console that prioritized common and recurring community management tasks. Our research and design process gave us confidence that we could achieve 80% of the everyday tasks with less than 20% of the current administration console.

This new experience is automatically enabled for all new Jive-n installs. Existing customers can open a support ticket to enable this experience if it's desired. Even when the new experience is enabled, there is a link to quickly get back to the current administration console.

We will continue to gather feedback on this new experience - particularly around key administration needs that might be missing. We hope you enjoy this new experience and that it makes setting up and managing your community a little easier.
