  Thanks for providing these comments. With the major re-architecture of 
the SANA backend and database, we have spent less time on the usability 
of the front end. We know there are improvements to be made. Right now, 
we are prioritizing the functional issues. We will work on the usability 
of the front end in the coming weeks.

Regards, Marc.
