In late 2020, Jackrabbit released a sleeker and smarter version of its user interface, including a simplified menu. Over the past three months, our Product and Development teams have been working with clients to perfect the layout of this menu so that clients have the best user experience possible every time they log-in to Jackrabbit to manage their businesses.
If you were one of those clients who gave us feedback–thank you! Because of you, we have been able to mold the Jackrabbit application into the best version of itself. We’re confident that with this new menu, you and other dance studio owners will continue to be able to grow their business as a member of the Jackrabbit family.
What updates have been made to Jackrabbit’s simplified menu?
We all know that good things take time. That is why we’ve been working for the past six months to get the modifications to the new menu right. That way, you can continue to streamline tasks and work as simply as possible when you’re in the Jackrabbit application.
So what is new and what’s staying the same?
In addition to the highlights above, the Jackrabbit Help Center has an entire resource center dedicated to helping you master the new user experience, as well as changes to the simplified menu.
Do yourself a favor and bookmark the menu map to revisit until the layout is part of your muscle memory.
Will I have access to Jackrabbit’s classic menu?
Yes and no. Here’s a look at the timeline of where we are in the menu transition.
Jackrabbit will begin phasing out the classic menu on May 27, 2021 in order to retire the legacy menu entirely by the end of June 2021.
If you didn’t transition to Jackrabbit’s new menu late last year, we encourage you to do so now! By working with our Support team to adopt these features now, you’ll be able to confidently move through the new menu and pages confidently before you begin enrolling students and families this fall.
What other updates have been made to the Jackrabbit application?
Did you know that Jackrabbit’s Product team publishes an annual roadmap of enhancements and new products that will be released throughout the year? While their focus has been on fine tuning the simplified menu, there have been some pretty awesome features that have hit the application recently that we think you should know about.
To help bring light to some of these enhancements that you may not be used to using-Jackrabbit’s very own Training Specialist, Marie, whipped up five short videos for you and your staff. We may be a little biased, but we think they’re magical!
