NRDR New Design (GRID) 

A new user interface design will be applied to the GRID Registry. The new adjusted design will include smaller font and spacing to allow content to be more compact and require less unnecessary scrolling. Adjustments to table styles will also be implemented to make working with table data user-friendly. Other common items, such as error messages and account registration pages, will also have a new design. Several left menu items have been regrouped into the following categories: Data Management, Reports, and Resources, however the user functionality within these sections will remain the same. 

NRDR is applying this new user interface one registry at a time. Other registries will be updated in future releases.
