Annual Curriculum Order Page Redesign at store.lds.org

Postby jimbaird » Thu Jun 21, 2012 10:14 am

The Annual curriculum order page is being redesigned. Seeking comments of things that you would like to see improved. Also if there was a webinar showing clerks what the new design would look like, what time would be the best time for clerks to attend?

Probably evening, local time. But what timezone(s) are you targeting?

Understood. But what about your target audience? Do you want the webinar to be at a reasonable time for participants on the East Coast? West Coast? Hawaii? Europe?

I'm guessing your main target is the continental US, which would argue for 7:00pm or so Mountain Time. Then Hawaii would be in the afternoon still during work hours, but it could work for some portion of those people.

The most important issue with a webinar, in my opinion, is to record it and make the recording available promptly. If you do that, the particular timing of the live event doesn't matter nearly as much. Most people are just viewing anyway and don't ask questions (I don't know if you were planning to open up a Q&A session anyway).
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Which would give a range of 6PM to 9PM starting time for CONSUS.

Last year I printed the order confirmation page and significant portions of the page were cut-off. Please make sure that the page layout is correct when printing the order details.

We are currently testing printing on IE8/9 FF and Chrome latest two versions and Safari 5.1.x for mac and ipad. If your browser is not one of these let me know.

Thanks,

Also have problems printing current curriculum pages. Have to change scale to about 70% in print setup / settings before content will fully print. This scale makes print hard to read for these old eyes. Then have to change scale back for all other web printing. Note: Opera browser has some popularity.

Back to new curriculum page design, I kind-of like recording and letting folks view information when they have time. My paying job keeps me quite busy Monday through Friday, and even some Saturdays, then family responsibilities and chores need to be done, so I'm essentially available for service and discussion on Sundays.

How about recording the presentation, posting it to the web, soliciting input, and waiting a week for comments to be posted? Being done with a project all in one session is a fun idea, but committee decisions generally don't work well that way.

I'm all for updating / improving distribution center web pages. I find them quite slow loading, and generally problematic to print. I use Apple, Windows, and Linux OS's, and prefer Firefox for browsing, though Opera is somewhat interesting.

Hope this helps.

Clerks,

We are seeking feedback on some new proposed functionality on the Sunday curriculum (formerly known as annual curriculum) pages. You may review the prototype by accessing the link (link removed now that the new curriculum information is in production).

A few things to remember:
1. This is a prototype.
2. While the prototype has links to many other prototype pages, the only pages we are interested in feedback on is the Sunday curriculum pages.
3. The products displayed in the tabs are not accurate. The products displayed are to show specific features of the prototype that we might include in a final product.
4. The text in areas such as the Q&A may changes as it goes through editorial review.
5. The “add to cart” button will not add items to cart but will show an error message that you must select a quantity before adding items to the cart.
6. This is a prototype (did I mention enough that this is just a prototype)?
Looking forward to your feedback,
Jim Baird

Clerks,

We have heard some feedback requesting functionality to the Online Store associated with Unit Orders. The request is to have a tab in the My Account area that shows Unit Order history. This tab would should all orders ordered by anyone with rights to order for a unit. This tab would show up in your account only during the time that you have rights to order for your unit. For example is you are a bishop you would be able to access store.lds.org with your lds account and in the My Account area click on the tab “Unit Order History” and see all orders that have been placed for your unit.

A prototype of this functionality can be viewed at
http://store.lds.org/design/supplychain/e-store/trunk/prototypes/click-through/account.html#unitorders

Looking for comments, questions and feedback?

Jim Baird
