Since it is possible to access all the lights and shades from the new home bar in version 5, I don’t understand the reason to create an activity tile on the dashboard for the same purpose. Am I missing something here? Does the activity tile offer more functionality than the home bar icons?
I agree. That’s why I state in the release announcement that you should review all of your Activities and delete old ones, many of which people no longer need as many things are now more easily accessed via the HomeBar.
Also, in a future release, we’re going to dynamically create toggle Activities on the dash based on your most frequently used HomeBar items. So we’re going to create those for you (and get rid of them for you) for your most frequently used items.
