Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: What we're working on

Our summary of what the GOV.UK product teams have been up to recently, and what to look out for next.

Things we’ve done recently

In the past few weeks, we’ve:

  • successfully covered the ministerial reshuffle
  • finalised our redesign of cross-site browse and navigation
  • published the GDS business plan (it’s a fine-looking HTML document)
  • made printing of guides more user-friendly, in response to user feedback
  • prototyped  a better index page for embassies, consulates and high commissions
  • removed logos from the landing pages of organisations which are exempt from GOV.UK
  • become able to measure how far users scroll down GOV.UK pages
  • built a finder for the Air Accident Investigation Branch
  • built a broken link checker into Whitehall Publisher
  • started lab-based user research into how people use Whitehall Publisher

Things we’re going to do in the next couple of weeks

  • release and evaluate the new version of mainstream browse
  • migrate the ONS statistics release calendar over to GOV.UK
  • start build work on  a better index page for embassies, consulates and high commissions
  • continue work on the shared parental leave guides
  • Build a finder for international development funding to replace their existing detailed guide category
  • automate a broken link report for Departments and Policy content
