Web-interface system «Business Guardian» (UI design)

«Business Guardian»  WEB APPLICATION DESIGN (HTML5/CSS/JS) - Content Analysis Settings

Task

Develop web interface design web-version of software «Business Guardian» for company Iteranet according to the standards and prototypes created on in the previous step.

  1. Create a design theme and interactive interface on the example of three feature-rich application screens.
  2. Formulate standards ui-design for application, to develop stylistic and structural style sheet templates and ui-components.
  3. Build on the basis of the developed interface standards all functionally different screens of the application, the entire composition of the ui-components needed to build the application interface on the stage of design integration
  4. Write a specification for the integration interfaces for developers

Technical requirements

  1. Interface design theme must contain a component style sheets to less-preprocessor for all standard included in the framework, and additional components, scripts for states and interface interactivity.
  2. The design should be developed as a stylistic theme generated on the basis of the framework. Draws the graphic layout design, by agreement, not required.
  3. Interface design should be organized on the principles of modular design – layout components to be easily reused and independently elsewhere in the application, scripts for dynamic components must be connected to the component context.
  4. Transformation and change of state in the menu, panels, components – animated.
  5. Use colors interfaces, previously adopted for the «Business Guardian» Product
  6. Implement the mechanics of adaptive design within the minimum and maximum width of the screen adopted for use on desktop devices display applications.
  7. Application templates must be built with content organization in several block frames with independent scrolling each.

Developed standardized design forms components – input fields, selection and confirmation fields, drop-down lists, buttons, group selection of simple elements (checkbox) replaced the component list of multiple choice with the ability to disable each individual choice within the group, using special convenient display within the group.

The structure, mechanics and folding element card marking scheme list is the same for different composition editable (criteria, modules, users) and non-editable (events, objects, documents, search results, tasks, reports, processes) elements.

«Business Guardian»  WEB APPLICATION DESIGN (HTML5/CSS/JS) - Cards

A hierarchical view of view based on the principles of user-specific value of each list.

All lists are equipped with mechanisms and tools folding, unfolding, selection and disabling of the unit and select all loaded elements, sorting mechanisms, narrowing in the selected filter, removing elements, where available.

Tools application package actions to the elements of the lists are only available in the hierarchical mode and folded cards and, where there is a clear view to view and track the actions with many elements list.

Developed meaningful color and symbolic solution for a variety of display systems, overlapping representations in almost every type of element. All used symbols icons justified function component, and not just decoration.

Active filter indication remains visible when the filter panel hidden, themselves controllers disable the filter parameter. Exceed one horizontal line of the maximum number of filters is hidden in the pop-up panel.

All symbolic lights and buttons without labels complemented pop labels with a text label.

Check test data where there is a change of the treated system, text display with indicators and a text box where the user inserts the text is made so that these two fields appear perfectly identical and seamlessly change each other, it is necessary and convenient for the eye and lock the focus on the process.

By the same token change viewing modes and editing made editable form input data – existing data available there and in the same way, where there are fields to edit them.

Provided a library of standardized elements, enough to build all the applications and functional modules 20 assembled according to specifications, application design patterns with a brief specification for integration. The whole design is made in the right code.

A full assessment of the effectiveness of the decision will be given after the launch of the web version and testing, but also objectively comparing the state before and after, it’s safe to say a qualitatively new stage in the promotion of the product «Business Guardian» on other markets, followed by an increase in the number of companies, prefer to use the web interface for monitoring tasks, instead of stationary software package.
