This project involved an overhaul of core workflows in an enterprise-wide graph authoring tool.
I came into this project at the start of the design phase. This tool had a wide user base (over 400 users) and had a poor reputation for usability. It was important to get the interaction design right, get buy-in from users and change the negative perception.
This was a functional upgrade, but also an opportunity to overhaul the workflows. This is the high-level process I followed:
Feedback on the process and the end result was very positive.
One requirement was making an existing “tweak dates” feature more accessible. This is what the feature looked like before:
I consulted key users to better understand the requirements, and also suggested moving the help text out of the form. I produced this alternative design:
This is the design as implemented. Definitely more accessible than before! Asking the user to complete the sentence makes it very simple to use.
