While you’re engaging in those communications, you might also have them consider renaming “Add/Edit Rules” to something like “Automation”, “Customization(s)”, “[Power] Tools”, “Wizards” (Wyzards?), or something that more broadly encompasses what are now (3) sub-categories. Shortcuts, in their current incarnation, aren’t really rules per se. Another approach might be to bring back the Shortcuts section as it was and place Schedule & Triggers within Rules separately. Acknowledged that this might grow the root menu +1 unnecessarily.
I was also thinking that it might’ve been (or still be) helpful to have included a demo/tutorial overlay screen for the overhaul - similar to the screens one encounters after first installing the app. This could’ve significantly softened the blow for many folks.
Additionally, it would’ve been helpful had shortcut buttons been preserved but stripped of their scheduling properties… the demo screen could’ve directed folks to the newly implemented Schedule section for the automated portions.
Just my picyaune $0.02 worth of inflated fiat currency…
