TakeTask Generator

We designed a crazy task management web app, for mapping all those exciting business processes.

PROJECT SUMMARY

  • Year2017
  • 4 weeks sprint 🏃🏻‍♂️
  • Research, User Experience, User Interface & Analytics
  • 650+ concept artboards
  • 140+ product screens
  • 450+ manhours
  • 2 designers 💁🏻‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️

Pre-generated scenarios

for Android and iOS on TakeTask mobile app

Goal

Process mapping that is not rocket science

Goal

Our goal was to design the flow, interactions and GUI for a task management system that allows you to create, administer and report any business process and scenarios in the organizations. User should be able to seamlessly generate a scenario from a group of 24 different types of tasks and also change their order, properties and correlations. At the end of the process, the user prepared scenario will be available via the TakeTask mobile app, which we designed as well.

The Way

Miles and miles of artboards

The Way

The Direction

Let’s build it from bricks!

The Direction

The idea was to give the user a box with a number of blocks. A single type of block generates a single type of task, for example: one that uses the device’s camera, another one that allows an NPS rating, and so on. Use of over twenty types of different blocks allows us to build any scenario we require.

Everything looks good on paper off course. It is the creative process and work put into it that validates the idea. We spent a lot of our energy on analysing the potential extreme situations in scenarios, types of interactions and relations between groups of tasks. Also the possibility of editing and creating the blocks and positioning them in the process. We also had to remember about possibility of duplication of whole processes or their large fragments.

We focused on establishing and presenting the process of placing the blocks on the scheme in as clear a way possible, which was not an easy task. So we decided to use something that visually reminds a block itself. Then we could use its color, contrast and other traits to visually notify states and actions of the task the block represents.

Below you can see purely visual effects of our work. Soon we will update this case with an interaction video. Stay tuned!

The result

Keep it simple
Keep it good

The most crucial element was the fluent flow of information and constant, reusable elements and work schemes.

After the intense four weeks we almost had the whole generator interface system. The whole web app was divided into two spaces for the sake of user experience design. The first space, called Diagram, is where the user constructs a general scheme of the scenario and chooses its necessary elements. The other, called Form, is where the process becomes more detailed and the exact actions connected to particular blocks are created – it is given a name or title and unique parameters and traits.

Each of those spaces have unique interface, adapted to the user’s needs for both high and low level of details.

Due to this approach, we minimized the number of unique screens, states and events. Stable elements of the designs give the feeling of full control over the process in creation and allow the user to focus on high level or low level details, with the ability to quickly and fluently move between them.

The Further

More freedom with more space

The Further

We also prepared a high resolution view, which allows the display of additional information and modules. This allows for example to see a preview of the scenario in form identical to what the end user sees on his or hers mobile device using TakeTask mobile app.

Another feature is displaying the scenario with a full name given to each task block in the generator. Thanks to this the user can have a better view of the created scheme. That is useful for users with incomplete knowledge of the created scenario, are working in a team or are re-editing an existing scheme. All those functions work together within a coherent system design of Diagram.
