I was wondering if anyone had any advice or experience when it comes to intranet user research? Currently I am conducting a number of user interviews with colleagues across my company, but I am starting to question the size of my sample, and also how best to analyse the research.
I am designing a portal that allows the user to add mutiple widgets/modules to their personalized dashboard. I've done extensive user research, but I am unsure if the widgets/modules should be pre-populated with data. The argument against this is the widgets/modules are highly customizable to the point where it is hard to predict what a particular user type needs in each widget/module.
I'm starting work on an intranet redesign project and am after some examples of good intranet design in the last few years (most examples I have found are 2002 and older). Public & financial sector examples would be a bonus. Any suggestions welcomed
I've been tasked with developing the requirements and UX for an
Intranet. The IT folks are talking about a portal model with the
multitude of legacy applications fully integrated as portlets.
I think that a personalized dashboards with single sign-on and links
to apps is OK with info feeds to the dashboard as appropriate.
My fear is that the portlet approach is too complex to successfully
design and implement. This sounds like the type of project destined
to fail. I was wondering if anyone has evidence-based POVs on Portals
vs. Dashboards from a UX / Usability / Project success viewpoint.
