General information about the Q1 launch

We want to make sure that you experience fast and reliable insights to accelerate your collaboration, team efficiency, and overall performance. This is the path towards a faster, more reliable, and more productive Siteimprove than ever.

New Dashboard experience specifics

With our Q1 2023 release, we have added a new dashboard widget that allows accessible issues to be viewed across sites. This new feature will help you to focus your attention where it matters most. 

When you enable this widget on your dashboard, you can see all the accessibility issues in a single view. You get an overview of the total number of issues across sites, and then you can filter the issues by site.

When the widget is enabled it looks like this:Screenshot of the cross-site Accessibility widget where different features of the widget is highlighted. Most of the features will be explained below

Use the drill-down to prioritize issues

When you would like to fix a particular issue, use the drill-down option on an issue to go to the site, and then to page level where an issue occurs that needs to be fixed. 

  1. Under “Sites” to the very right in the top bar, expand an issue to see the sites where it occurs.
  2. Do the same on a particular site, and then see on page level where the issue occurs.
