Cosmic Blog New Dashboard Updates: Global Nav, Projects, Billing, and more!
by Cosmic on May 5, 2022

We are excited to announce big updates to the new Cosmic dashboard which are now available for testing. Sign up for the alpha preview to check out the new features and read about the updates below:

Improvements

1. Global navigation layout
The global navigation has been moved to the top bar along with the search feature. This provides for easier access to core features and opens up the information architecture.

2. Updated Bucket organization
Buckets organization has gone through an overhaul. We now include a secondary menu to make it possible to add lots of content types as well as media folders. Media folders now include emoji and edit capabilities.

3. Updated Projects
One of the biggest changes in this release is the expansion of the Project as a higher level component in our service. Projects now include:

  • Team members with main roles and granular Bucket permissions.
  • Billing plans. Payment management service available (Stripe test mode).

4. User billing
You can now add a payment method (Stripe test mode) to your user account which can be used on any billable resource. Invoices are also available for testing.

5. Extensions
Extensions have been improved with simpler organization and display editing.


Breaking Changes

There is new logic for Project / Bucket roles and permissions. So any previously added test projects will need to be re-added. You can still import any Bucket from the old dashboard into the new dashboard by going to Bucket Settings > Import / Export.
