Our user researchers conducted most of the user research when I joined the team. Besides this, I also interviewed event organizers, event attendees, and general users myself. We summarized our work during the research work
An event app user
Current social event apps do not have user ratings and reviews for event hosts
Communication with other event participants is very inefficient
Know ratings and reviews from guests of a host’s past events
Easy to view, communicate and connect to other event participants
Create events of their own with customizable setting of ticket, information, and visibility
Yuki loves attending different social events
But she could not check ratings or reviews for a host on most current event apps
She also found she could not chat with other attendees of the same event
With Jolly, ratings for event or host becomes very helpful for decision making
Yuki can also interact with other participants in the event group-chat
Jolly makes her social life easier than ever!
Based on our interviewees' thoughts, we used three popular event apps and apps with event feature as a user. Here I summarized our findings as this comparative analysis:
|Group chat||Only for friend-contacts|
|Create own events|
The ratings and reviews for a host will be also displayed on profile page of the event host.
In order to help users talk to other attendees of the same event, a group-chat entry button will bring user to the group-chat conversation page after join confirmation.
Rating about past events
Users will view user ratings and reviews from past event participants
Users who registered an event can discuss with other participants in a group-chat channel
Customizable event options
Our app needs to allow users to create and customize their own events
2 participants tested
Participants have some experience of using event apps before
Tested on Invision (Mac)
Find an event and join it
Check ratings about the event
Send a piece of message on a group-chat
The original new event page cannot support setting up multiple time sessions
UI was overcolored and it made users distracted.
A more traditional form layout that can allow users set up multiple time sessions
A less colorful but clean and simple UI design
In the original design of a conversation page, beneath the text field were six action icons. Our users said they looked a little busy. More importantly, they were small and close to close to each other and the above text field.
I simplified the design of text field and action bars by moving commonly used actions to the same level to make text field stand out and decrease the chance of mistouch
The original design of review list screen got feedback that time point of review was not necessary
Our developers found implementing comment/ like feature within the review list screen required more nontrivial work than our budget allowed us
I simplified the design of review list screen by canceling like/ comment feature and display of time
Moreover, I made the rating breakdown section collapsible to save more screen space
