Questions about UI things in Prefect 2.0(b3):1. Timeline (Image attached):
a. I’m noticing I can’t increase the timestep size (i.e. shrink the flow) in the timeline graph. I have to scroll to see from one end to the other. Is there a way to do this? I’d like to be able to
visit view the whole flow timeline on my screen.
b. I can’t click on one of the green bars in the flow and get info about the task like I could in 1.2. Is there a way to do this?
2. Radar view:
a. I get that 2.0 moves to a no-DAG approach but I’m finding this view a bit harder to look at. Perhaps I just need to get used to it but I’m wondering if there are plans to create something a bit more intuitive for people used to looking at DAG flow graphs. Is there some documentation I could look at that would help me understand this choice and justify that it is a better approach?
3. I find if I want to copy paste the URL for a particular view, e.g. http://127.0.0.1:4200/flow-run/9041b7c8-9439-4657-938e-e3c4fccc0bfc/timeline into another tab (or maybe if I wanted to share it with someone else), I’ll just see
instead of the view I wanted to look at. It would be very nice if I could take advantage of a url to quickly get to the place I wanted - like if I wanted to remove the “timeline” part to just get to the view for the specific run.

Hey @Michelle Brochmann, thanks for the detailed feedback. The UI is actually going through a re-work right now so some of these may be changed. What I’ll do is forward this to our UX designers. Really appreciate it.
