New UI change to remove colors from icons

This new UI that removes the colors from the icons in Power BI service is really awful. Many of our users are complaining about it. When you have a workspace with many different types of content, it is difficult to distinguish between all of them when they are all black and white. 


This change went into effect here last month and then randomly went back to normal. We were disappointed to find it back again. Please consider putting colors back into the icons at least. 


Users are also disappointed with losing the tab to filter to datasets/dataflows quickly.

Did anyone figure out how to fix this??????

Closed-circuit to whoever greenlit for production:


You're bad at your job and you should feel bad. This sucks by any objective measure. You've taken a simple task - navigating the already-bad workspace view (FOLDERS?!? HELLO?!? You did this PC-DOS in 1983 - forty years ago! ) and somehow made it even more painful. Bravo!


What was immediately obvious to all but the pure red/blue colorblind is now a chore for all. Are you experimenting on the user base, or are you just this bad at your job?

I agree, the new layout for the Workspaces is counterproductive and a backward step. It makes it much more difficult to distinguish and manage content, particularly with the removal of the different tabs to filter content/datasets/dataflows.


Please restore to previous layout.

I came to the forums just to check if this was some kind of bug or something. New layout is bad and just over complicated simple things.
