Hi Blair -

For this very reason, Blake is working on front-end revisions to the tool. Well designed tools definitely matter, and that holds here, too.

Using this again was a bit of a shock, TBH. The visual design, or lack  
thereof, feels dispiriting at the start of the day.  

I don't mean that as a trivial thing - it's well established that  
visually appealing tools result in a more positive and productive  
experience, and has follow-on effects to other tasks.
