One: We have added access to our Playbook Beta via our Top Menu Bar.
Two: We have linked our [ Community ] button in our Top Menu Bar with our Community Board, which is an integrated version of Discourse ( www.discourse.org ), great software.
Three: Users can now Log In and Sign Up / Claim their own SmartHomeDB URL.
Four: A workflow we integrated is that when you add products to Playbook it will at a certain step recommend to [ Save ] so you do not lose your research. Once you save (and you do not yet have a SmartHomeDB account) you immediately create your SmartHomeDB account and respective personalized URL during your [ Save Playbook ] progress.
We are still in the process of streamlining the overall user experience across all our modules but we are confident that our basics are solid. We embrace honest (tough love) feedback, so feel free to comment.
We especially look forward to reading your suggestions for Playbook. The idea behind 'Playbook' is to facilitate that users can visualize and obtain a complete understanding of their (planned) physical smart home.
Similar to how Google Maps Directions gives instructions on how to get from Location A to Location B, the SmartHomeDB Playbook provides instructions on how to upgrade a Home to a Smart Home.
The How-To Records and Module are currently still in development, which is the reason why when you click on How-To Rows in Playbook nothing happens (yet).
