By The Numbers






Since 2012, I have worked side-by-side many talented teammates to continually improve upon our industry leading training platform. A continual task has been focused on increasing the amount of time our users spend with our apps. A goal for our product team is to have our users continually learning and utilizing our many features. An idea that we explored and designed was a revamping of the users homepage or dashboard.


Through user research we found that users were having a difficult time finding the features that they most commonly used. Or, they bypassed the main content presented to them on their dashboard.

"It would be nice to have the ability to customize my homepage. So that I can view, at a glance, the things that are important to me."

The task then was to revamp the UX and UI of the home dashboard. We came up with the idea to have a dashboard dynamically generate the user&as dashboard based on most utilized features. To redesign a new feature-rich dashboard required a page that was flexible and completely scalable. To achieve this I needed to completely re-engineer the experience to facilitate utilization for every unique circumstance. To achieve this wide scalability I implemented a modular design.

The Results

We currently are in beta-testing with the new design. But our initial feedback has been extremely positive. We've increased users time spent on our platform, and believe we collectively designed an all-encompassing solution.
