I have noticed the QR code feature; however, if we are using with different farmers it does not help much, they want to keep their data separate (having their own settings, username and password).
Still they would need to download the app and change settings then.
Onboarding helps with the user “account configuration” as they can be prompted to add in their user id and password, as a registration process. Keeping it to a minimum, of course.
Main functions needed:
- Registration: only need username and password
The ideal type of onboarding would be function oriented, but progressive since most users skip through long app intros.
- Guidance through use: As the user sees new information requested that would be displayed in the page of relevance
So in the main menu of the collect app we would have the buttons for the workflow and the guidance would only pop-up when clicking on a menu. For instance get forms = “here you can select forms that are relevant to your monitoring program, download a blank form prior to going to field”, something like that.
5 things I would like our users to know about:
- Registration and form download
- Form upload and data pathway
- Data Privacy
- Feedback channels
- About us and our support channels
The idea is to teach users about the data collection through an app, compel them to fill up and create a dialogue between pop-ups and email notifications.
Here is a good link with summary of useful onboarding tips.
Let me know what you think that helps. I am happy to continue this dialogue.
