It looks nice, but I'm not sure I understand the purpose of this Sites drawer? Is it intended to replace the existing My Sites, or would it be in addition to the existing My Sites, and if in addition, where would it go? Is it to replace Worksite Setup in Home, and ultimately display a lot more than My Sites, with the ability to take actions (delete, restore softly deleted, etc.) on the sites?
If this is a new feature (or, I guess to replace the existing My Sites), I have the following suggestions for improvements:
I find it confusing that the sites are not organized in any
logical way (course sites by semester, project sites in their own
category). At minimum, this organization should be maintained.
What is the purpose of the separate area at the top of each card? Is it just to indicate whether it's a course or project site and display the site icon? If so, the site title could be included at the top of the card as well and all the tool icons by themselves in the bottom part of the card (making each card smaller). Also, with respect to the icon, I would not want to encourage users to add site icon URLs because entering a bad URL causes bugs when users try to upload to Resources; see SAK-33705.
Why are the tops of the cards different colors? Currently, the
colors seem random and not helpful to organize or visually
identify the sites (some of them also stand out for me more than
others, like the bright pink one in between the brown and blue).
I would expect if anything should be colored, 1. the user could
specify the colors and 2. the colors would correspond to an
organizational principle, like all sites from a particular
semester would have the same color.
The other thing I noticed is that the visual indicator of
keyboard focus when tabbing around on the page is not clear when
focus is on a site title. It looks like everything on the card
(including all the icons at the bottom) are selected.
