Account summary screen: what do you want to see?

January 21, 2014 | TPL Staff | Comments (29)

Since our last round of mobile testing at Bloor/Gladstone branch, we’ve continued moving forward on the redesign of the account section of the website.

We started with designing for mobile devices and have now run through several iterations and three rounds of testing with users. Up next: what should the new account look like on larger screens?

One of our goals is to provide a great experience on any type of device and deliver the full range of functionality in a usable way. Now that we’ve found a way to fit all the account features into a small screen design, we need to decide how to use the extra space that larger screens provide.

The account summary screen is a good example – its main purpose is to let you get a quick overview of the status of your account, but is there other information you’d like to see?

We’ve heard from a number of you who want branch information to be easier to find, so we added today’s hours for your home branch to our design, along with some basic profile information, a link to our eBook service, and a program promotion.

Take a look at the concept and let us know what you think! Is there information we’re missing? What would you like to see on the account summary screen?
