Fulcrum Product Update – Global Navigation

November 1, 2019

Fulcrum updates – new and coming soon!

In a recent post we highlighted some new features and usability improvements for Fulcrum as well as some goodies that were just over the horizon. Today we’re happy to release our Global Navigation feature, as well as some other UI improvements and bug fixes.


The most noticeable improvement comes in the form of a new sidebar navigation, coalescing all the major navigation paths into one area. This gives the entire app first-order-retrievability when it comes to higher level navigation, so no more clicking back to the home screen to access other areas of the app.

A running theme through this update is consistency, and the buttons throughout the app were a bit all over the place. We corralled some of the rogue offenders and made sure we designed enough variations to cover all our bases.

Photo Gallery View

We added the ability to view every photo from a single record (including its child records) in a gallery view. This saves a ton of time when trying to troubleshoot issues with records containing a lot of photos.

Some Nitpicks, Bug Fixes, and Layout Enhancements

Since adding the sidebar, the main content area of the app got a boost in screen real estate. In light of this, we adjusted the layout of each screen to make better use of the space and improve the overall usability of the app along the way. We also took the opportunity to fix a few nagging issues that we discovered while working on these updates, making everything a bit more refined.

🙏 Thank You

We hope these improvements will make life a lot easier for our customers. If you haven’t tried Fulcrum yet, now’s the perfect time. Sign up here to start your 14 day free trial.
