Design Moments : Interactions in Windows app

In my previous post, I got a lot of feedback on the areas we could make interactions better on Windows app.  Most comments we received was about the interactions with Child line and Explore screen.

We now have some design prototypes illustrating some key considerations below. Our goal is to leverage the advantages of the peripherals that Windows provides while continuing the touch interaction.

1. Consistent top-level navigation view.

2. Tables (or "Grids") are a good way to show a lot of details in a structured and organized way. Given the real-estate available for Windows app on a desktop / tablet and precision pointing that comes with a mouse, we would like to take a shot at leveraging this design. Below are very specific aspects.

  1. View more number of columns in the table (we think 10 is a reasonable number)
  2. Ability to expand the table to full screen, if there are a lot of lines.
  3. Edit contents of the table - inline 
  4. Filter every column.
  5. Resize column width - useful when there is precision pointing device.
  6. Make scroll responsive and optimal for mouse vs touch.
  7. Ability to tab around when there is a keyboard.

4. Structured "Explore" screen that takes advantage of the space available. The Search list is based off the "Table" design.

4. Show the appointment details from the Calendar. This design is inspired by the ServiceMax Go-app design.

I would love to hear your feedback, especially around the following:

  • How easily can your user navigate in the "Table" design?
  • What do you think about allowing the user to keep multiple record views open at the same time?
  • How do you use "SFM App Permissions" to show more or less number of wizards on Windows app? We are trying to understand if the "Actions" menu should be any different for Windows.
