NB: We have a new left hand side, column style navigation bar which replaces the original top banner, text based bar. By way of a quick guide, working from the top down; the Method Grid avatar (or your company graphic for the Professional customers), is your link to your account home page (a page which will evolve into your “Productivity Hub” throughout 2021). Second is your notifications centre; third, the account search; fourth, your grid library; fifth, you dashboards; sixth, the light bulb, your link to element templates and example grids; seventh, your members and group pages; eighth, help and support; and finally your profile image, the place for profile and account settings, the switch account feature (for those with multiple accounts) and the other areas that currently sit there.
You can read the release blog here.
To download a grid from the Method Grid store, you need first to open up the store.
To open the store, click "Resources" on the menu bar and then "Grid examples" from the dropdown. Alternatively, you will notice that there is a blue store (shopping basket) icon in your “Grid Library” page. You can also click on the store icon to open up the store.
You will now see grid promotional thumbnails - for example, one titled “How to build your first Method Grid” (available now for free). This grid just serves as a simple tutorial for new members - using a Method Grid to explain - how to build a Method Grid!
The information action button on the thumbnail (“i”) provides a simple summary of this grid (description, number of elements etc.). In the future, this will provide a grid developer the opportunity to explain/promote the grid (we will develop a far richer interface to accommodate).
To download it to your own personal grid folder, you need to click the “Clone this grid” action button. This opens up a dropdown with two options: “Clone the grid with elements” (the majority user case) and “Clone just the grid”. Select an option to see the resultant grid downloaded into your private "my grids" folder area. It can be subsequently moved to the main grid library if you so choose; see How do I move a grid to another folder?
Once cloned down, you can edit and amend the grid to your heart’s content.
