  • 2. Agenda
    • Research phase update
    • 3. Prototyping phase update
    • 4. What's next?
    • 5. Q&A
  • 6. “ Create a U ser Interface so that OpenOffice.org becomes the users' choice not only out of need but also out of desire ” Mission Statement
  • 7. Goal Statement ... to know and to understand our users as they are, and to help them accomplish what they want to, by providing efficient access to valuable functionality through a desirable user interface.
  • 8. I. Research Phase Update
  • 9. Research – User Feedback Program
    • Sun Internal Tooling
      • Cached report creation for a faster report generation
      • 10. Negative list to show uncalled events
      • 11. Next/previous function (i.e previous event for undo)
    • Improvements for OOo 3.1.1 release
      • Tracking of menu buttons
    • External Data on OpenOffice.org
      • OOo Tracking data for download
    • Next Steps
      • Make the (internal) data accessible for the community
      • 12. Live usage data explorer as OOo extension (planned)
  • 13. Research – Competitive Analysis
    • Miroslav Mazel from the OOo UX community created a competitive analysis considering:
      • MS Powerpoint 2010
      • 14. MS Powerpoint 2008 (Mac)
      • 15. Apple Keynote '09
      • 16. Google Docs (as of June 2009)
      • 17. and Zoho Office
  • 18. II. Prototyping Update
  • 19. Prototyping – Goals
    • The design goals are to
      • help users to find/use essential functionality more easily
      • 20. help users to gain in expertise quickly
      • 21. help users to create eye-catching documents in less time
    • The design directives are to
      • minimize clutter and maximize consistency (similar elements are grouped and positioned in similar ways)
      • 22. minimize redundancy and maximize relevancy (required information is revealed on demand)
      • 23. minimize recall and maximize recognition (visual decision aids are provided when they are beneficial)
  • 24. Prototyping – Finished?
    • Six Weeks of (Java) Impress Prototyping
      • 2 Software Developers (Andre Fischer & Bernd Eilers)
      • 25. 2 User Experience Engineers (Andreas & Frank)
      • 26. 3 Mid fidelity prototypes in different variants ( Try it! )
        • 'Scrolling Toolbars'
        • 27. 'Tabbed Toolbars'
        • 28. 'Fixed Label Toolbar' (the team's clear favorite)
      • Daily meetings and discussions
      • 29. Daily feedback to community at OOo Wiki
      • 30. Feedback from OOo community via mailing lists/blogs
      • 31. Fun!
  • 32. Prototyping – Functionality
    • Supported Functionality (Highlights)
      • Loading .ODP (ODF) files from OOo
      • 33. Slideable toolbar area
      • 34. Galleries & color theming
      • 35. Live previews
      • 36. Editable and zoomable sorter view
      • 37. Direct object interaction for slides (copy, delete, zoom)
      • 38. Live master view
      • 39. 3 D view for small devices
      • 40. New handles/ mode less rotation
      • 41. Notes window
  • 42. Live Demo http://tools.services.openoffice.org/impressprototype/impressprototype.jnlp Start prototype: (Java required)
  • 43. Fixed Label Prototype – Normal
  • 44. Fixed Label Prototype – Sorter Scrollable Tabs Views & Zoom Classical Main Menu Fixed Toolbar Area
  • 45. Fixed Label Prototype – Master Zoom in/out Master Page
  • 46. Fixed Label Prototype – Master Zoom in/out Master Page Delete/New/Copy Views & Zoom Scrollable Tabs Classical Main Menu Fixed Toolbar Area Moving objects across pages Delete/New/Copy
  • 47. Fixed Label Prototype – Galleries Galleries
  • 48. Fixed Label Prototype – 3D View
  • 49. Prototyping – Insights
    • Prototyping is Great
      • Immediate and new insights, problems and ideas
      • 50. Fast iteration of prototypes
      • 51. Cool new ideas were born only due to do prototyping!
      • 52. Easy to get feedback from customers and users
      • 53. Should be done more often in the future!
    • What Does Mid-Fidelity Prototyping Mean?
      • People outside often think this prototype will become the next Impress product because most things are working. It is just a prototype to test the user interaction.
      • 54. Furthermore Renaissance is about the entire OOo UI, not only Impress!
  • 55. III. What's Next
  • 56. Next Steps
    • Focus on the organization of functionality
    • Make UX tests with normal users
    • 60. Gather feedback & think about new prototypes
      • Contextual UI for formatting objects (what was already present in StarOffice 4/5)
      • 61. New visualization for tabs/sliders on top of the toolbars
  • 62. More Prototypes?
  • 63. Q&A
  • 64. Thanks
