Here's a link to an article I'd like to take to heart:
Starting with the basics, I need to focus the site. Focus it down to have a point. Right now it's cluttered, but the focus I'm aiming for is to turn this into an easy to use team task list. So, at a glance, anyone on the team can see what tasks are assigned to them, and which ones are up for grabs.
Right now there are about a dozen views to see the data every way from Sunday, but too many views is complicating things. What I need is simplicity! It needs to be Ikea-clean. I may not be able to touch the corporate branding (ie: giant header) but I should be able to do something with the content itself.
|So far, this is my bucket of boring. Everything is obscured, nothing stands out, and the left nav is a bunch of clutter.|
