Sidebar redesign

We changed the way the sidebar works to simplify navigation and improve organization of views. The new sidebar replaces the nav bar for high-level navigation, so it's now present across the entire app. It also includes some new icons to help you navigate around, including the ability to set custom emojis on your views. You can also now resize the sidebar.

Record search redesign

The search bar in tables and views is now in the action bar, and is faster than ever with updated keyboard shortcuts.
