I totally agree with Ken Monhkern. And here's an UXPin article by Ben Gremillon that supports that method A Hands-On Guide to Mobile-First Responsive Design. BUT you must remember what differences good UX designers from... not so great, is the ability to decide whether the implementation of a tool is appropriate or not (in this case "designing for mobile ...

I'm gonna disagree with most here. No, don't design mobile-first. No, it is not useful to actually design a mobile view. Nor do you need to take in consideration things like extra large fonta due to higher pixel density. Yes, deciding on prioritized content is good. Yes, backwards compatibility is good. Yes, pay attention to performance. But those are ...

If its a company back office CRM and will only be used in the office, there is no need to design it mobile first. It will just cost you additional unnecessary resources. However, in my opinion, you should use responsive design and focus on the desktop resolution. This way your system will be optimized for desktop and in the same time mobile ready in case in ...

I have worked on similar types of projects before, and used the term 'desktop first' responsive design to frame the overall design concept/direction. This implies that the design should still be able to accommodate different viewports and devices, but that instead of making sure that it works nicely on mobile devices first, the priority is that it will look ...

I would highly suggest start to design mobile first if is a requirement and a valid use case. Retrofitting a CRM is not a pretty situation and easy to design.

From your description seems that neither you nor them have any clue of how the process is going to go. What is going to actually happen is going be unveiled in the near future. There are many things you can do in UX design but you'll always have to choose something within the time & money resources you are given. Until then, your clients need a ...

This is purely just my own process (so disclaimer here if it doesn't work for you), but I haven't really seen anything that bridges the gaps between system, UI and UX design that is being practised out there, so I just did my own thing: What you can do with a strategy like this is to figure out whether it is the business processes, UI or UX that needs to ...

Yes, use your favorite mobile-first design process for desktop-only apps Don't get hung up on the word "mobile." There is still value in mobile-first processes, even if the app won't be used phones or tablets. As far as screen sizes go, this will probably be easy to accommodate, but don't simply assume the design will work on your user's screens. (You ...

You may want to look at it this way - Given that most of the users would access it using big screens (desktops), there is straight away not much sense approaching it from the mobile-first side. Rather, given the nature of your application, think of smaller screens(not devices) as something that might complement the larger set of actions that the user can ...

For most apps written with html and css it is easier to add functionality for desktop than to remove it. If there is a remote possibility that your app will have to eventually function on mobile apps (and let's face it - it probably will), then you should design for mobile first. Here is a practical example: A lot of apps today are built with an interface ...

A CRM appplication is usually a lot of dashboarding with many and sometimes all the information/action about your user on one screen. I've worked with CRM apps which need browser on fullHD screen I believe mobile first is wrong in that case for UI.But you should design all your backend API to be small and modular enough to be able to (query, request, change) ...

The main advantage of "mobile first" is that it forces you to narrow the app to its most essential features. You simplify the IA and the interactions. Then as you design the desktop version each additional feature has to earn its way in. You have to carefully scrutinize whether the desktop features really need to be included. Therefore, I'd say that a ...
