This morning we released a major update to the DPD admin that brings it in line with our new branding that we’re rolling out across the site. You’ll notice a new, cleaner admin after you log in to DPD.

Don’t be alarmed! We didn’t remove or move around any of the key pages so everything is where it used to be. Here are some of the key changes:

New Header Design / User Menu Layout:

We’ve changed the header to be cleaner and contain all user options, including switching to affiliate mode and logout, in the user menus.

New User Menu

We also moved the store selection and “Add New Store” buttons to the top of the left navigation menu:

New Grid and Table views for the product list:

We realize there are a couple different categories of DPD users when it comes to number of products- ones with a handful and ones with a ton. To make DPD easier to use for both, we have added new grid and table views to the product list.

The grid view is great for those with a few products. To get to the options for a product you just move your mouse over it and the context menu displays:

The table view is great for those with lots of products, or “Pro” users who want quick access to all product functions from one context menu:

Which view you use is completely up to you- you can select it using the buttons beside the filter and we’ll default to that view each time you return to the product list. To select the view to use:

This is part of our ongoing branding update while we move all services to the new DPD logo and color scheme. You may have noticed the new logo in notification emails and other places around DPD. Next up we’ll be updating the sales site, so don’t be alarmed when it looks completely different one day- we’re still the same service with a new look.

We welcome feedback on the new admin style and product list options, or the new branding in general. Please drop us a line and let us know what you think.
