    I am continually frustrated by the UI changes made to the Google Apps admin area not so long ago.

    It is so unintuitive - even today when I was trying to add a new user to my account, I couldn't work out how to do it.

    After years and years of UI design research and well published best-practices, I thought we have moved past this desire to replace words with icons because we knew they weren't intuitive? No - it seems that form over function wins again :(

    Hahaha sounds like Google. The simplest design they can push out. Will improve overtime usually.

    By the 3rd try I'd have been googling how to do it.

    What about the "Users" label?
