We understand that UI changes can be annoying, especially when you’re used to using a piece of software in a particular way. But sometimes change is necessary, and at CloudM we don’t do anything without good reason.We have carried our user research which has shown that there were a few key areas we needed to focus on for the redesign of CloudM Manage; below I’ll cover how we improved those areas and what you can expect from the new, enhanced platform.Read more about why we made these changes here
A brand new area to view data and insights about your domain. Expect this area to grow in the future - so keep an eye out for updates!
Browse all of your Smart Teams, org units, contacts, groups and users in one place.

For a full walk through of the platform’s new features, I’ll be conducting a free on demand webinar, going live in line with the launch at the end of September, so keep an eye out!
