Not sure where to post this, so this is where it is going.
The layout of the Events page found here: https://www.bentley.com/en/global-events/events-overview is terrible. the Metro style of tiles is way too large and provide next to no information especially as compared to the older style list. Please either pass this information on to whomever needs to hear it or take action to make the list usable. Even when I filter the list I still have to scroll to see more than 4 items on a standard laptop screen and my filtered list for ProjectWise was 8 items with a continuous scroll of a blank page for what could have held at least 8 and probably 12 more.

That thread looks like a lot of unproductive closed mindedness with no care for the end user. Bottom line: The layout doesn't work. I had a difficult time finding what I need. This trend towards a Metro Tile interface is poor at best and just because everyone else is doing it is no reason. Let alone the fact that the tiles are too large even if using a touch interface. I would be able to select an item with my entire fist and the information provided in the initial display is not very valuable. The image is way too large and just because it will be changed to more appropriate images when you have them doesn't suggest the layout will become smaller and therefore usable. Anyone who uses it is not allowed to tell their children "If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you?" Be innovative, not a follower. Isn't that what Bentley was built on? Isn't that what the founders would expect?
Sorry, but hopefully your end user input means something and we can have a better system as a result. If not, so be it. Why do I end with this? Because the conversation in the thread you referenced is suggesting Bentley Systems doesn't care about our input.
Hi Karl, thanks for the feedback. I am discussing this internally with my colleagues.
Is there any way to share a link to a single event with someone so they can register? Finding events is difficult at best Especially since you only see half of the title in the list. The Share option, even when viewing an event's "page" share the entire list so now they have to try to find something that they shouldn't need to. Sorry, Jesse, but to claim the current layout and capabilities are a step backward would be a gross understatement.
There is an icon, top right corner, to share. See screenshots.
