With the new "Home Screen" I can't:
That's not very user friendly because:
Do I miss something here or is it just poor design ?

It’s very poor design. It’s yet another example of Airtable employees not using or understanding their own product. And yet another example of the constant revolving door at Airtable. They claim to be gathering feedback on the home screen at the 2 links below, but as a top Airtable consultant for nearly 6 years now, I have never personally seen them implement any customer feedback into their product.

I agree. They still (after all these years) haven't fix the comma instead of dot as decimal mark for us non US users.
I've send feedback for that problem too. I don't expect anything.
Truth is I'm looking for alternatives. I might even return (after 10 years) to FileMaker Pro.

Where can we find Airtable employees? They should respond.

What I find myself doing is using the Favorites option. I mark all the bases I use daily as "favorited," and then I can drag and drop the order once there. It took me a while to adjust since I no longer see the hundreds of bases I was used to. When I need to find something, the search has become my tool. Since Google Docs relies on its search tool heavily as well, it's simply something I need to adopt more regularly. I adopted the new screen months ago in beta, so over time, I now rely on it.

I gave N.H.S. some time. The design is awful. I use at least 10 bases every day in different plans (free and pro). Some bases are shared and I have to work with others. It's impossible to work with this. I returned to the old one.
