After September 21, 2023, access to the Adobe Marketo Engage classic experience for all the following Design Studio assets along with the ability to toggle between classic and the modern “New Experience” will be deprecated from all Marketo Engage subscriptions as we focus on delivering our modern user experience to all our customers.

 

All the capabilities in Marketo Engage Design Studio from the classic experience shall be made available in the modern experience and there will be no loss of data associated with this transition.

 

We have already brought some of our most popular Marketo Sky innovations to our modern experience and ensured that all the capabilities in the classic experience are available in the modern experience. And the response to the modern experience has been positive till now.

 

As Marketo Engage gravitates towards redefining the way marketers conduct their daily activities with higher productivity, improved ease of use, and optimized workflows, we would like to transition the user experience completely to the modern experience in a phased manner. This announcement is the first of many we will broadcast in this community as Adobe continues to help marketers succeed. 

 

Stay tuned for more exciting modern experience developments throughout Marketo Engage and help us with any feedback to improve your experience.

Hi @ndalvi 

 

I hope you are well! Thank you for informing us about this change for Design Studio. However, in the modern interface, many users have noticed that the 'contain' logic in the classic user interface search bar is not available in the modern interface, which makes it extremely difficult for users to search hundreds of images or assets they have in their Design Studio. Is this still the case after the depreciation in September? Any information on this topic is appreciated! 

 

We have written a post on this particular question in the past: https://nation.marketo.com/t5/ideas/bring-back-the-old-search-functionality-in-the-new-user/idi-p/32...

 

Thank you so much for your attention on this matter; much appreciated!

Hi @WY 

 

Thanks for highlighting this. We are reviewing this and planning to bring an improved search functionality also considering that there were some performance issues in the older experience with larger quantity of assets.

I find it quite unacceptable to leave us with search functionality not fit for use, we really rely on that and have crafted naming convention around having that ability. Now we will have to upload multiples of the same image to save the pain of finding something. No wonder servers keep crashing.

You made it worse!!! All the one click functions I use on a daily basis are now hidden in menus and lock/unlock functions that ARE NOT USER FRIENDLY. Instead of clicking "edit", I now have to unlock, wait to load, then find the edit in the much larger menu, and do that every time I need to make an edit. Sorting image files requires a horizontal scroll, barf. I'm sure there's more for me to find annoying, but only time will tell...

I'd like to echo the sentiments of the other commenters. Please restore the "contain" parameter to search.

 

Design studio search is now essentially useless.

 

We have 1,000s of assets accumulated over 8 years. I'm trying to hire two new employees. They won't be able to find anything.

@Dan_Askin @Vivre : We are working towards bringing an improved search functionality in the first half of the next year. Please bear with us.

@jjasulevich Thanks for the feedback. If you could highlight specific actions that were 1-click that you would normally use, please help us with those. We have added quick actions for the same but it is quite possible that those are not amongst the ones you generally use. We have made it adaptable based on usage we have received but we can work on improving the same. Edit is one of the quick actions that we have on the Details Page Overview screens. Not sure if I understand lock/unlock, if you could elaborate we can work on it. Could you please also highlight the horizontal scroll with the images that you experienced with an image. We would like to connect to understand more, let us know if you would be willing to share your feedback.

@ndalvi bringing back improved search functionality in the first half of 2024 is unacceptable. You're basically telling us that we cannot use Design Studio for 6+ months. Many marketers out there use DS to search assets and for us to be unable to use it for half a year is ridiculous. Is there any solution you can offer to fill this gap?
