Tuesday, May 15, 2018 - 2:00pm
WDN Shared Governance Board updates
- QA Review Subcommittee
- UX Design Subcommittee
- Discussed usability testing and feedback about progress of the design. Every morning at 9 a.m., there's an informal critique at 12th and Q offices of IIM if you want to drop by.
- Did round one of usability testing focusing on header, search, etc. Will be doing another round of testing. Based on feedback from initial round, next batch of tests will be done on the actual 5.0 theme. Early usability tests showed users were confused about bottom of viewport.
