When we introduced 1Password Teams near the end of 2015, it included a brand new way to access 1Password right in your browser. Tasks that were impossible before became not only possible but super easy. A few short months later, we introduced 1Password Families, specially tailored for home use. And a year ago, we introduced 1Password memberships for individuals. As 1Password.com grew to support a greater variety of people, it had to meet the needs of everyone — from individuals to small families to giant corporations.
Today, we’re unveiling the new 1Password.com. This redesign prepares us for the future and all the great features still to come. Whether you’re using 1Password.com at home or as an administrator of a large team at work, the new design is just for you. We’re so thankful for all the feedback you’ve provided, and we’ve used it to make your experience even better.
The Admin Console is dead, long live the Admin Console
We know that managing a team can be difficult. Although I can’t help you resolve any office fridge disputes, as the designer for 1Password.com I can make things easier for you in other ways.
If you’re an administrator on your team, 1Password.com just got a whole lot simpler to navigate. You’ll see one of the biggest changes as soon as you sign in. We moved all the features that used to be buried in the Admin Console out to the sidebar on the Home page. Everything you have permission to do is now directly available to you.
Information that used to be hidden in the Admin Console is now visible at a glance. For example, a list of all your groups is now accessible right in the sidebar, so you can instantly give someone access to all the resources they need with the right permissions automatically set.
Your ideas, implemented
One improvement in particular is a direct result of feedback we’ve received. You can now manage vaults right from the Home page. It’s just one more way we’ve put everything right at your fingertips.
Sweating every detail
The redesign touched on just about every element of 1Password.com:
- The new Quests section helps new team and family members get started more quickly.
- Higher contrast list views make it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for.
- Higher density detail views show you more at a glance.
- Notifications alert you to recoveries and pending team members in a central location on every screen.
All of this is only the beginning. We plan on doing much more with those detail views and notifications. Keep an eye out!
Good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight
One of my favorite parts of my job is adding a little levity. Now when you sign in to 1Password.com, you’ll see different messages in the sidebar based on the time of day. It wasn’t exactly the number one feature request, but I do hope it makes you smile. :)
Thanks for coming on this little tour with me. We’ve come to the end of it, but we don’t have to stop here. Feedback fuels designers like me; we love to hear from people using what we design. I love talking to people about how they’re using 1Password.com and what else they might want to see in the future. Email me your best ideas.
