I have read the design guidelines for the new issue view. In the guidelines, “content” are supposed to be the primary way for interacting with the app and the glance is typically for secondary information or rare interactions. In my current App, I offer customers the possibility to display the app either in the right-side panel or directly in the issue details. This is more of a preference on the user’s part and it was a popular request at the time.
Now, if I strictly follow the guidelines, my App should only be displayed as an issue content. But Atlassian’s customers won’t really care about guidelines. They will still want to have the app behaving according to their preferences.
I believe that many vendors will respond to their customers requests and propose the choice to display the App in both locations thus diluting the vision that Atlassian had for their new issue view.
Any thoughts on this?
