Hello! We would like to hear your ideas and opinions on having a mobile application for UX Specialists.
Help us brainstorm by answering the questions below. We look forward to receiving your thoughts and insights.
Do you know of tools/applications/activities that are useful for User Experience Specialists?
Do you think having a mobile application for User Experience Specialists will be useful?
If so, what features/tools should the application have?
I have a workflow in which users can choose to move their data through
processes, A, B, and C. Internally the states are actually a
sequence. So if the person selects C we first move the data through A
and then B.
I could present this as a radiobutton list, e.g.:
If the person selects Spindle, we secretly fold the data first, etc.
The sequence is hidden. But
sometimes the processes fail, so a user who selected Mutilate will
find that his data Folded properly but couldn't be Spindled.
I am debating whether or not I should disabled the OK button on a dialog box until the fields that need to be filled are "error free". Let's assume I have two fields on a dialog box: Name and Position. On dialog open, the name is empty and the position is defaulted to a predetermined value (which is editable). Let's assume I clearly identified both fields as mandatory. Do I leave the OK disabled until a name is entered or do I enable it and provide an error message if it is selected with no name entered?
I am working on a project that requires the ability to assign a user in the
system to a role. There are three roles to choose from and each role
provides rights to certain screens and tools.
If you choose the third role, you also need to select from a list of rights
that user will have. Note: this is something that will not happen often.
Something like this....
( ) role one
( ) role two
(.) role three
 right 1
 right 2
 right 3
 right 4
 right 5
As you can see, I need ideas as to how to better present this to the user.
I was selected to be one of the organizer of my company's engineering
off-site this year and one of the themes is "Innovation" - a whole day
is dedicated to it. I am currently the only UEx designer with the
company. The discussions of innovation will revolve around many
topics: technology, process, business and hopefully interaction
ATMs are a pretty common device, and they've been around a long time.
I would have hoped we would have this optimized by now, but it seems
interfaces are still (a) wildly inconsistent and (b) inefficient.
Most ATMs appear to (still) be designed for the first-time user,
which is frustrating for most people.
Here are two good things I've noticed recently:
* PC Financial (Canada): when depositing checks, you are presented
with a small ledger, where you can enter check amounts one at a time,
and let the ATM do the adding.
