This project is a re-design and combining of existing Dow Jones Help Pages into a single, easy-to-use user experience. The goal of this project is to create a UX that will allow users to self-troubleshoot and create service tickets via JIRA, rather than call the help desk.
Length of Project: Four weeks
Size of team: Myself, a senior information architect, eight stake-holders and twenty-two volunteer testers
Software used: Omnigraffle Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Justinmind Prototyper
• After identifying user needs, I begin researching pre existing designs and user experiences.
These wireframes are based on the results of my research and the user testing. This is a search centric help page with lists of services in a grid. Each service is assigned into a category, which is represented by an icon.On the right side of the page, a list of common issues other users are searching appear as well as a recent history to streamline the self-troubleshooting process. Employees can also fill out their own service tickets by click the “Log In” button in the JIRA module. Lastly, users can provide feedback by rating their experience on the page.The use of “breadcrumb” links allow the user to backtrack when necessary. A list of related issues appears in each subcategory to provide more relavent options. The search feature may be filtered to search within specific categories and narrow the search.
