I think that weekly total sales also be different from each other. In order to show overall performance, two different interconnected bar-chart can be a good solution for your problem.

Pie charts are not good when you have to compare. Also, they have a limit of how many values to represent. I would recommend a horizontal bar chart. Comparisons are much more easy and you can have many values. Also, the names of the employees are much more easy to read. Keep the bar chart simple : Do not add grid-lines. X-axis values are not needed. Place ...

Here I attach 2 options to display the information which you want. This is my idea and this is wire-frame only so don't consider it as design. I commented necessary information so please read it carefully. I hope you will have clear idea that what I am trying to explain. Images shown below are just for the example purpose. These are the screens :

Welcome to UXSE. This is a good approch. But I have something different. Added one new feature hope you like it. Refer image:

one time password (OTP) is implemented at server side via php and a third party service(in case of sending OTP via SMS). For an app, if you are using OTP for authenticating the user, it should always be manual,i.e, the authentication will be successful only after the user inputs the sent OTP. Otherwise, the whole OTP thing is useless. Consider this, I can ...

when talking about icons, the UX design principles focus on creating / choosing the right icon for a given use case, not how the icon is created (whether or not it is mergerd / combined / mixed from 2 existing icons or created from scratch), see e.g. http://boxesandarrows.com/optimizing-ui-icons-for-faster-recognition/ though you can try to search for ...

Those are two sets of related but different concepts; mental/conceptual model, and framework/roadmap. The difference between a mental model and a conceptual model is described well in this article. Mental Model v Conceptual Model A mental model represents a person’s thought process for how something works (i.e., a person’s understanding of the ...

You may want to provide some more context, but a simple popup menu sounds like a good idea.

Delays are significant for UX. Some solutions and patterns used in UI which work smoothly (feels instantaneous) with BASE to be problematic with ACID due intolerable response delays.

This is an extension to Andrew Martin's answer, and the short comment discussion. I point to Andrew's answer as the short and simple correct answer: Database construction and manipulation should never affect the UX design. The rebuttal to Andrew's correct answer is one that we hear all too often: ground realities are different. Database design and ...

Database design is critical! As are all architectural decisions. This is why a software architect should be a part of the UXD process. The choice of back-end architecture isn't something the UXD can decide, but user-facing factors can be evaluated from a UX perspective. These database considerations will impact product experience: Is the product highly ...

Typically users want quick answers to questions. Users want the good filtered from the bad. On a sales website you would not expect a travel company to expose a holidays negative points. A comparison site you would expect an immediate comparison in the form of a 1/5 or star rating. Then maybe 200 character synopsis. The user has already made a decision to ...

To me the difference between a product designer and an UX designer would be that a product designer deals more with the question of what the product should do, while an UX designer deals with the question of how the product should deliver what it does. In other words: product design is about what benefits the product should bring its users - and UX ...

Product designer - Designing the product so that it is robust in terms of design able to accommodate various requirements, scenarios, features and user flows. like an ecosystem where stakeholders can expand and optimize the product easily using what's already there. e.g. the product already been designed to accommodate a new module, with minimum redesign ...

Good question. These are very closely related in product teams. UX designers will typically conduct user interviews and other various user testing methods to get in the minds of the product users. It's designing with the mind in mind. UX designers should be dependent on users for a design layout. Product designers work closely with ux designers in that ...

This is probably not the industry standard definition, but certainly what I understand the job titles to mean: UX designer - someone who applies User-Centred Design (UCD) approach to solving problems relating to user experience (can be in business, technical, design or anything else); generally this will be for a digital product or service, but ...

This is one of the main areas of interest in semiotics and as such, it's vastly covered, although there are 2 main theories from which posterior theories emerge. These theories have more than 100 years and are the theoretical support for modern design, starting from first wave of linguistics , then Bauhaus and coming to these days. To make it short, these ...

Some recomendations on getting the higher conversion rate with the long forms: Make the labels clear for users. Dont't make them think (a lot), work on the language and tone Group the fields in a logical way. So the users a) focus on some aspect (Address, Contacts, etc.), b) have a rest after filling some set of fields, c) enjoy when some part of ...

First, ensure that any data entered by the user is being temporarily saved. It's horrible to go to effort of filling out a long form only to have everything erased because a session timed out or you accidentally left the page. Consider using inline validation and perhaps encouraging statements. They shouldn't be patronizing or too chummy. But showing a ...

It will be better if it mateches with the UI. Its a good UX. For example, when I use Photoshop extensions or plugins, it comes with their own UI, Which makes me think that accidently I opened a different application. If you follow the same UI design guidlines that will sync with the application.

Database construction and manipulation should never affect the UX design. The design of the database should facilitate and optimise whatever processes the server-side operations require. As this takes place server-side it should have no impact on client-side and therefore no impact on UX design. The only possible impact a database could have on UX is if ...

I suggest you have a look at the article "Icon Classification: Resemblance, Reference, and Arbitrary Icons" by Jacob Nielsen. According to Nielsen, there are three broad categories of icons: resemblance, reference and arbitrary icons. His studies seem to suggest that: Resemblance icons usually have the best usability, though an arbitrary icon can be ...

If your portfolio is going to target tech savvy and creative people, I guess its ok to go experimental. A diagonal or a more unique approach would impress this group of user. However if you intend to show your website to a broader group of users, you might want to tread on the safe side. A more conventional layout such as layout 3 would appeal to them and ...

Supporting legacy browsers can add significant costs to development and those costs compound when considering maintenance of the code. Legacy browser support shouldn't be as problematic if your methods of building the site/application make use of progressive enhancement. For example, CSS is great when browsers ignore features it can't support. Nothing ...

Dizzying options a click away Zappos does a pretty nice job of dealing with this problem. Many of the shoes they carry are available in all sorts of color combinations and sizes. There are also plenty of related products that, to some extent, are part of the whole purchase consideration and should be readily available even from the detail page. They've ...

A conclusive opinion on this case would be subjective. However, it can be safely noted that over the years the jack has apparently found a position which provides users the best experience, the topside. By not placing the jacks on either the left or the right sides, the phone could be classified as truly ambidextrous, and would be easier to handle. The ...

First thing first Nobody is removing CTAs. In any case, some sites are (well, I think they did it some time ago) removing CERTAIN CTAs. In the specific case you mention, the Add to Cart button. As to why are they doing it, it may be many reasons. But answering a part of your question As UX designers, have any of you made this change on your site? What ...

As a general design question, I think it is not unusual for design trends to change, if only to adjust to the change in user behaviour since the last wave of design trends. So I suppose in general you can look at the 'trend' as being something that is part of a constant change in design ideas, and the other part being driven by specific factors in the ...

Exposure = Revenue (the business side) The cognitive goods matrix: There are goods you are aware you need. This is your shopping list. There are goods you are unaware you need. This is the stuff you forgot to put on your shopping list. There are goods you are aware you want, but you don't exactly need them. Like a book you have on your wishlist, but you ...
