Let’s design an interface (ERP type) whose utility for a Manager is to be able to query, accept or reject type requests:
- Personal matters (full days or hours)
- Maternity/paternity leave
- Medical leaves
The Manager may:
- Analyze the information per person
- View the type of request
- Review the dates of the absence and the dates of the absence request
The request detail tab will display:
- The type of absence
- Who is requesting it
- Number of times this type of absence has occurred during the year
- Absences by type that the person has had during the year.
The Manager, based on this information displayed, may:
- Reject the request
- Accept the request
Final desktop design
In this prototype for Desktop you can see my approach to achieve the objectives of the project. The design is clear, minimalist and user-centered. The bright blue color is used to visually differentiate the interactive elements.
The “Requests” section has been conceived as a section that could be part of a scalable ERP application to also manage departments, project dates, hours assigned to these projects per user, sprints, etc. The modular design proposed from the sketching phase allows to convert this concept into an application that covers all the administrative needs of a corporation and even connect the Web App to external services that amplify its usefulness and power.
The “mobile first” approach is evident in the video below. For a more immersive experience, I recommend playing the video in full screen by clicking the “maximize” icon in the player toolbar.
The video below shows wireframes designed by hand, with a modular approach. This is an effective technique to come up with a solution that is easily scalable and adaptable to any device. Again, maximizing the video will deliver the optimal viewing experience.
