      Description

      We would like to make Jenkins usable by as many people as possible. It includes multiple groups of users: people with disabilities, ones using mobile devices, or those with slow network connections.

The UI is also not in line with modern UIs.

Even so, labels for other things are above, not to their left (see this example for invitation duration – which is also pre Windows 10):
