I find just using the colors as the demarkation a bit harder to understand. You can use a vertical rule to act as a placeholder for the goal, YTD or annual, depending on the day. Your focus should be the goal and how much over or under you are. What I mean is there is not enough value of showing the actual numbers when you are just bother to about the ...

I had a very similar problem recently, and did some user testing on it. The main thing that came out of it was that we should avoid colours that have a common meaning. So yellow was a bad option, and green represented 'good', not 'acceptable'. In the end we used grey as the neutral background colour, blue as the progress for 'expectation'; green as ...

I'm guessing this question will be locked, because it's a "shopping around" type question, but have a look at what Atlassian does. Their products are top notch. Intranets have fragmented anyways. So many companies focus on such tiny niches, that it's hard to compete with them by building a very general application that does it all. So again, look at any ...

If you are looking to introduce a bias towards giving up, that's one way to do it. If you want to learn when people give up, give them tasks they can succeed at, but are difficult. Some people will have a harder time with the tasks than others, some will be very persistent, others will give up easily. It's highly individual. Success rate is an important ...

As a SharePoint consultant (a biased one) you can always take a look at public facing web sites which will give you an idea what's possible. The only thing that differs an external web site and an intranet is the anonymous access. So turn your browser to SharePoint 2013 Websites: At this point, after almost one year since its preview release, we have to ...

"What do you need?" is certainly not enough and will lead to you receiving a lot of generic suggestions as your research group attempt to second-guess you and give you the answers they think you're looking for. Instead, focus them on common tasks - searching for a colleague's contact details, administering their employment - and look for ways to improve the ...

I'll even be interested in hearing if someone says that Intranets are a dead-end concept, and how other technologies can replace it. Intranets have fragmented anyways. So many companies focus on such tiny niches, that it's hard to compete with them by building a very general application that does it all. I agree; not only do businesses ...
