New UI now available for opt-in!

Hello CircleCI community!

Over the last 6 months, we’ve been hard at work replacing our UI. Huge thank-you to those of you who have spent time writing into our Ideas board, in feedback sessions, and beta-testing the initial releases. You have been heard. We’ll create a more intuitive and effective UI thanks to you!

We are now allowing a limited number of users to opt-in to our new experience as we build it. If you have build-processing enabled you may begin to see a button. Give it a spin, we think you’ll love it!

Please note: Not all the CircleCI functionality will be there yet. We’re following a product philosophy we call the WAFL (Well-Architected, Functionally Limited) in which we build scalable and reliable front-end architecture, but only add back in a few features at a time.

Thus, you can always opt-out again, and then back in, etc. If you opt-out, please let us know in the pop-up poll on the bottom right why you’re going and we’ll take that into consideration in our prioritization.

If you’re interested in where we’re going long-run, I’m including some designs below. These designs are tentative. We embrace the Agile process. We’ll be closely monitoring how real users interact with our new look and shifting our vision provided feedback en route.

Tentative fully-functional Job Detail page design:

Tentative Pipelines page (also serves as top-level navigation):

Tentative Pipeline Detail (including workflows map) design:

We all look forward to hearing your feedback, both on the designs and the experience of the new UI once you try it out. Thank you in advance!


Hi @Kate_Catlin,

We would like to try it out. How could we opt-in?

Hi Oleg et al,

We’re rolling this out first to our Beta Program. If you’d like to see it first, sign up for that in your user settings!

After that, we’ll slowly show the button to a randomized set of users via LaunchDarkly, increasing the ratio of showing it over time.

Thanks for being so willing to jump in!



@Kate_Catlin been waiting for this! Can’t wait to try it out!

When joining the beta program, is for the team or for the specific user?

Edit: I see it is limited to the user joining. Which is good for me.

Where can we find the artifacts in the new UI?

Hi Joe!

Thanks for asking. We’re still in the process of building the new UI (it’s in beta) and Artifacts aren’t there yet. They’re a high priority to add back soon.

We heard a lot of feedback regarding the current design for Artifacts, including poor UX with the nesting, lack of discoverability, and wanting to see the artifacts list at the same time as the the step output. As such, we’re moving the Artifacts list to the “Details Sidebar” on the right-hand side when we build it. Looking forward to hearing everyone’s feedback and open to iteration if it doesn’t work for you.

Thanks again,


Very nice looking forward to test the improvement. I can relate to the feedback but I generally also like the direction it is going.

Beta phase generally begins when the software is feature complete but likely to contain a number of known or unknown bugs.

I don’t intent to offend, but…
It is confusing that calling it is a beta less than current features.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to better UI :slight_smile:

I’ve enabled the beta program, but don’t see where to opt-in to the new UI.

Is there something I’m missing?
