I'm currently designing the UX for an event travel site. It starts off with the organizer registering and then it goes right into the "wizard" where it functions like an accordion -- broken up into a few sections.
- First section asks organizer to enter in their trip information (ie. what, where, when)
- Second asks them to add trip activities and option to create a poll for each activity (ie. going to the spa - what where when and poll question for group to answer) - option to skip and enter later
- Third allows them to add hotels for people to choose from - option to skip and enter later
- Fourth gets their flight information and allows them to enter in any airline discount codes - option to skip and enter later
While the users are entering in their information, on the right hand side they'll see a summary of what's been entered so far. If they want to edit something, they can go back and forth between accordions to edit.
At the end they can choose to invite guests to join or they can go to their "dashboard" where they can see their trip profile/itinerary -- once they hit either options, they don't see the wizard anymore.
If they go to the dashboard, it'll have everything they entered earlier in a template type view. From there, they can just edit on screen (similar to how you can edit your Linkedin Profiles on screen).
Do you think the flow that I have provides a good user experience or a poor one because users can't go back to the wizard once they've decided to move forward with inviting guests or going to see their dashboard? The reason why I chose to do the wizard in the beginning is to help guide the new organizers since my demographic is not very tech savvy.
Would love to hear what your thoughts are on this. I'm open to criticism because I'm trying to learn as much as possible especially since I am new to ui/ux. Also, feel free to let me know how I could have asked the question in a better way according to the information I've given.
