Research, Design, Test & Iterate
The first thing I did was familiarize myself with all the key features. I began researching what was absolutely required in an employee timesheet application and made a list of user needs from my research.
I wanted to gather as much information as I could directly from the end users so I conducted user interviews with employees until I began seeing a pattern and feature requests started becoming repetitive.
From there, I created user stories and prioritized them all in order of most important to least important.
- As a user, I want to be able to find a product
- As a user, I want to clearly see my total work hours
I created wireframes, interactive prototypes and applied UX design principles to construct (design) the new user interface. I used Balsamiq to design the new application based on user requirements I gathered from my research.
I conducted user studies, user interviews, prioritized user stories and iterated the design until the employees and stakeholders were satisfied with the new UI.
