This was a very useful element, but it may be worthwhile to restore it.

This was a very useful element

I don't miss it.
After working some months with the new UI, I even would say it was a waste of vertical space, a bit too much eye-catching and distracting from more important content.

Can you explain why it was so useful for you?

Especially as a novice user it is not easily discoverable what the different colors mean when you are on the front page. Sure, you can hover each and every colored field to get a description, but that is active work and not even possible on touch devices. There is plenty of vertical space available (infinitely much, you could argue ;), and it should also be possible to show this bar in a more compact way (e.g. just as a horizontal list).

This has been very helpful for users who have rarely used a tool that is implemented in different instances with different workflows. Could not configure this bar as: ON, OFF
