We're presently going through introducing a new concept into an existing customer facing dashboard. At present customers are used to navigating their assets by using a site-wide "rating". This is safety based and represented using Red/Orange/Green traffic light colours.
The new requirement is to also surface asset expiration in the same screen. There's a few different schools of thought internally on how's best to do this.
Our Existing UI showing simply the safety of the assets on a user account. As is quite clear the separate bins add up to the total. They provide navigation to the asset management page pre-filtered to the safety level clicked.
Contributing to totals The first suggestion internally is to have an extra row supplementing our pre-existing safety categorisation showing the same safety figures, but adjusted for expiration. These new figures are not just the numbers of safe/warning/dangerous assets that are now expired. The new red section is an amalgamation of both Dangerous & Expired. The new orange section is an amalgamation of Warning & Expiring. The new green section being all Safe assets less those that are expired or expiring. The further 2 new boxes representing the expiring assets without any reference to their safety rating.
There is a strong internal desire to provide a "quick view" of assets that have problems. Though I'm very conscious of the fact that existing users will have a learning curve and potentially different figures than they're used to. I've intentionally kept mine and the product team's opinions out of this post in the interest of a fair representation of all ideas.
