Skills: Research Evaluation/UI/UX/Information Architecture
Challenge: Create a new workflow for faculty to request leave in the library. Allow for a visual easy to use interface for faculty to request leave, and allow for supervisors to follow and approve requests.
Outcomes: A previously email only process with one employee wrangling these requests and notifying proper individuals, is now human centered application where faculty and supervisors can easily see who is on leave at a glance.
Prototyping included role based workflows or requesting, correcting, approving, and deleting leave requests. The system is a visual workflow on a calendar versus spreadsheets and email. The application kept track of leave hours remaining and role changing ability for faculty who are also supervisors.
