We recently upgraded from 2.8 to 3.2. Many of the new features are great. However, it also seems you are taking a page from Microsoft's development book. By that I mean, taking commonly used items that were 2 or 3 clicks away to ones that are now 4 or more clicks away and/or moving them to a completely different location. In most cases, it is probably just getting used to it. I do like the new Admin menu layout, though it has its own issues.
Enough quibbling, down to specifics.
We are using the default 3.2 theme (Boost?) and working on making everything compatible with the Mobile app.
In 2.8 (at least in the theme we used), click on the quiz and get the quiz admin menu. Select Results->Grades, Responses, or Statistics or other quiz related function are accessible with no problem with the ability to bounce back and forth with ease all basically in the same area.
In 3.2, click on the quiz, then click on the gear, then click on your function. The problem comes in if you select Results-> Grades to see how the latest group did or completion status, then if you want to see the students' responses or check for commonly missed questions, since the gear or any selection menu is not available (first image below), you must click back to the quiz then click on the gear to change function. You must do this for each change as the gear only appears, and the menu is only available, on the first quiz page (second image below). In the first case below, clicking on Grades or Results does nothing useful by just taking you to the current page.
Overall, I like the Boost theme, though I may try others due to this large PITA. Is this a bug or intended operation? If intended, why and please fix! In any case, how can I get the all contextual menu operations on every page?
In a similar vein, I have also noticed on the Admin menu that when items are selected some of the bread crumbs have links and others do not. This too is bothersome as to go up a level you must go up two or more levels then come back down. Based on the below, in order to let's say add a cohort, I must go to the main admin menu, then select Users, then select Cohorts in the Permissions section instead of just clicking on Users.
Yes, I could make bookmarks, but in a short time the number of bookmarks would become unmanageable and useless.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Theme modification, other than adding/removing blocks, is not currently in my wheelhouse and I do not have access to the php files anyway.
Sorry for the long post.
