   Hi @john-bodley 
   We are trying to clearing some low-hanging fruit that previously discussed with Cartel,
and approved in SIP-34. 
   Menu items in the top nav bar historically were not arranged in any particular order. We
re-ordered the nav menu once last year and re-organize items in the sub menu as first step.
   In the research with Cartel, the designer suggested that we can either arrange it by user's
work flow, which is 1. to connect with database in **Data**, Persona: Data scientist. ->
2. to explore raw data, cleanup and restructure data if needed, prepare data for exploration
by creating virtual datasets in **SQL Lab**,  etc, Persona: Data scientist -> 3. to explore,
slice and dice data, and to create charts for dashboard in **Explore(Chart)**; Persona: Data
analyst ->4. to view and edit dashboard in **Dashboard** Persona: Business analyst/business
   The other idea is to reorder the objects by usage, and the order would be the opposite.
Dashboards-> Charts->SQL Lab->Data. This argument may seems counterintuitive to DS,
as DS spend majority of their time in handling data. But the number of dashboard consumers
is way larger than dashboard creators in large enterprises. 
   Given the current order, Data -> Charts -> Dashboards -> SQL lab, it seems to
be less disruptive if we reorder by workflow.
   We also did some user research in-house to validate our assumption, it's not directly related
but could use it as a support document.
