FISCAL CALENDAR

GOAL

Bridging the gap between dates in a fiscal calendar and dates in a regular calendar, which in turn will foster smoother communication between different departments (Sales, Accounting, Marketing etc.) across an organization.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

For a laptop/desktop experience only, design multiple flows that attempt to address the unique needs of two distinct user groups using the same web-based app: those who need a standard date picker, and those who need to interact with period calendar dates and other special accounting dates shown on the calendar image.

DELIVERABLE

Paper prototypes or Lo-fi prototypes in any prototyping tools

TIME

5 DAYS

TYPE

Class Assignment - Rapid Prototyping & Lean UX Methodology

PROBLEMS FACED

- Time Constraint (one of the 4 assignments due within a week)

- No user story was provided. It was not clear where/how would the calendar be used, like a widget or a regular calendar or as a part of the dashboard.

RESEARCH

- Extensively studied the calendar for a day and a half to understand what the different categories meant.

- Discussion with classmates and friends over the possible ways and situations the calendar might be used.

- Web research to find anything remotely similar or concerning a fiscal calendar.
