As part of the Labs initiative, one of the first experiments that will be made available is a new navigation experience. The goal is to make it easier to find and reach information you are looking for, and a faster and more intuitive experience when you are moving around XPLAN.
Some of the key research findings we're looking to address:
To help we’ve introduced new ‘Quick navigation’ functionality, which will allow you to navigate directly to the page or feature sought removing the need to battle numerous menus.
We’ve now added more visual cues to ensure you can find the right page or feature in XPLAN. It will also make it easier to return to work you've already started.
We’ve introduced ‘onboarding tours’, which will guide you through the new look and feel making the transition simple and seamless.
The new navigation will work on mobiles, tablets and desktop browsers and sets up XPLAN for some exciting new features such as Opportunities and My Day (which provides an overview of what your day looks like, including meetings and tasks).
Here are some of the designs we've based the enhancements on:
