I really like the concept of the Harbor, but find it a little complicated when navigating. I used Excel mainly when I was a fleet sup at Stanford, and that was a challenge at first. Maybe you can put together a tutorial on how to best navigate the App. In my old age, I'm finding I no longer have the patience.@props2you Excellent feedback! I get exactly where you are coming from. We were going to release the application in September, but it was designed in a non modular way, where it almost required you to keep records on everything, I didn't like it. So we tore it all down and created a modular area architecture for the specific reasons you mentioned above. This way an individual can can use it how they wish without feeling "Required" to use everything. Hence added time as we went back to the drawing board. Only a few users are using every module. Personally I don't use every module for my boat. The key with the launch was to put out the "Kitchen Sink" and we see what features and areas have user acceptance, adoption and use. As the application maturates areas could be discontinued if not used. Already we are working on the UI change for Version 2 this fall which will make it smoother to navigate and allow a user to configure the flow for the things that they want to use vs the things they don't.
Additionally the primary goal between Versions 1 and 2 is to find ways that create less friction and make it a "Breeze". This also will be about the time when Mobile will be taking shape, which will have a slimmed down interface. You can use the current version on a phone and it scales accordingly, it just is a bit difficult with some of the larger pivot grids to scale.
Simply put, you add your Watercraft and some base details and then use which areas you want to use. They are all loosely coupled.
