As you might already know, high customizability and extreme extensibility are two major strengths of the Nuxeo Platform. Being a very powerful, future-proof solution, the Nuxeo Platform always has room for enhancements and we never stop making the platform even better.

Nuxeo users look for more personalized web and mobile experiences and quick access to what they need, especially while collaborating. We recently collected user feedback to improve user experience and correct any interface issues they might have faced.

A new and improved UI recipe


It was time to go back to the kitchen, put on the chef hat again, and start cooking something new based on user feedback. Our main goals were:


Full Document view to improve readability Full Document view to improve readability


  • Simplifying the UI

  • Simplifying the navigation

  • Improving collaboration

  • Accessing documents in a quicker way

  • Centering the application around the user

Have a taste of our UX improvements now!


The demo is ready and we can’t wait to show it to you. Check it out and tell us what you think about it!

We think you will enjoy:


  • Unified browsing: easier to use, and easier to learn

  • Reduced Noise: You won’t see the tree and worklist all the time

  • Quick access to documents with side panels and trees

  • Modals windows that minimize the jump between pages

  • More responsive and adaptive UI

There are even more screens and actions that we are still working on and will implement as soon as they are ready. Please note this is a lab, so all the features will not be added as it is in the product but, as always, you have the power to decide what you need and want in Nuxeo Platform.

Your turn to taste the new Nuxeo UI!


Access the demo and send us your feedback through this survey. We want to know what you like and dislike, and what else you want in the Nuxeo UI. We will restrict the access to Nuxeo Online Services Customers only once more features will be implemented but for now, it’s available for every person curious about what we do, and what we are working on. So don’t waste time and explore our UI lab demo… the meal is served!
