We have new flows captured. @kraftbj posted the Nexus 6 results and @earnjam will be posting iPad shots within the next couple days. @topdown volunteered to capture screens for Samsung Note 8 and possibly other devices as well.

To date, our device list includes: Nexus 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and Desktop, with additional screens specific to network upgrade.

We posted some info late last week on how someone could help test and capture the network admin UI. Test installations of multisite are available for anyone to use if you have a device but just have no way of accessing a multisite installation. Please leave a comment on the post or in #core-multisite if you’d like to get started.

As we create tickets and find bugs, we need to populate this spreadsheet as part of the overall screen sweep effort.

Objective for next week: New tickets to address found issues. These issues logged in the screen sweep spreadsheet.
