We just freshened up our site navigation and improved the way Folders and Favorites works, which we hope will provide a much more productive and satisfying experience for all Safari Books Online subscribers.
The top navigation is now streamlined to allow direct access to the most commonly used features. Links to categories, previously contained under “My Safari,” have been brought to the surface, so Favorites & Folders, Bookmarks, Notes & Tags, and Reviews are always a click away.
We also tidied up the rest of the top nav. All search-related functions are now clustered together, including Suggested Search Terms, your Recent Searches, and the Advanced Search link. Clicking your name brings up a list of your Recent Views, a link to your Account, and a link to Sign Out.
Along with these top nav updates, we made some significant enhancements to Folders and Favorites, based on many requests we’ve received from users. We now provide multiple levels of organization for your saved titles. Folders are now called Lists, and you can group your Lists of Favorites into specific categories (for example, “Training Videos to Watch” or “Books to Read on the Bus”).
We’re also serving up the new Folders and Favorites page with a friendlier, more dynamic interface that allows you to select multiple items in your Lists and drag them into other Lists all at once. We think you’ll like it a lot!
These initial improvements are just the beginning of many updates slated to fall into place over the next few months, all of which are designed to make your experience with Safari Books Online continually more useful and enjoyable. We will, of course, keep you updated as additional progress is made.
