Improving the User Experience of the Perception Point Dashboard.
The Perception Point Dashboard was in need of an upgrade, and the team decided to transition from a horizontal navigation bar to a vertical navigation bar.
As the project's designer, my goal was to create a straightforward and easy-to-use design that is simple enough to use, modern, and clean.
The objective of this case study is to improve the user experience of the dashboard app by transitioning from a horizontal navigation bar to a vertical navigation bar on the dashboard.
To begin, we conducted user research to understand how users interact with the current dashboard. We conducted interviews with users to understand their current experience and what they would like to see improved. We also conducted a survey to gain insights into user preferences for navigation bars.
We analyzed the data from our research and found that users preferred a vertical navigation bar over a horizontal one. They found it easier to navigate and find the information they needed. Additionally, users felt that the vertical navigation bar was more aesthetically pleasing and organized.
Based on our research and analysis, we designed a vertical navigation bar for the dashboard. We used a simple design with clear labels and icons to make it easier for users to find the information they need. We also added a search bar to make it easier for users to quickly find what they are looking for.
Old (horizontal) navigation bar
New (vertical) navigation bar
State one - Icons only
State tow - Icons + text
We tested the new design with a small group of users and found that they were able to navigate the dashboard quicker and more easily. They also found the design to be more aesthetically pleasing and organized.
The transition from a horizontal navigation bar to a vertical navigation bar on the dashboard improved the user experience. Users are now able to navigate the dashboard more easily and quickly, and they find the design to be more aesthetically pleasing and organized. This case study demonstrates how small changes can have a big impact on user experience.
