Re: Standardization status

Hey Lea

They look awesome! I really like them.

Is there a key on one of our pages indicating what each indicator means? As
currently to determine what the indicator is ( *if you aren't already
familiar with them *) you have to hover over them, but what if this is
mobile or other touch devices? How are new user's going to know what the
indicator stands for?

Otherwise i think they look great!
