Since I work as a UX designer at Siteleaf, I will talk about an experience I had with Google Docs and Siteleaf. As a UX designer, I always try to find the best way to design a user interface and make it easy to use for users. This can be very challenging because we have to consider many factors such as the structure of the information we want to display, the method we use to provide information, and so on.
I'll start with an example that shows how I used Google Docs and Siteleaf together to design an easy-to-use interface for customers. Let's say you're a customer and you want to create a website with Siteleaf. To use Siteleaf, you need to create an account first. When you sign up for an account, you can register your email address and create a password. Then you need to write the title of your site and select a theme for your site. These actions are done on the Siteleaf home page. After these steps, we want our customers to be able to upload their content and start to build their own website.
The question is how can we design this process so that it is easy for our customers to complete? To answer this question, I'll introduce two types of information displayed on the home page:
Let's go through these two types of information one by one.
Account information includes users' login information, e-mail addresses, passwords, and so on. This kind of information is required for users to create an account on Siteleaf. We don't want our customers to have to manually input this information each time they visit our website. Instead, we want them to be able to log in with their Google accounts. Google accounts are used not only by our customers but also by many other websites. Therefore, if our customers already have a Google account, they can use it to sign up for Siteleaf. If they don't have a Google account, they can register for one, then sign up for Siteleaf using that Google account.
To upload content, users need to go to My Site > Pages > Add New Page or My Site > Pages > Create New Page. Here are some questions we need to answer:
How can we show users where they can upload their content?
How can we show the available themes?
How can we show users how they can create pages?
We've answered these questions using Google Docs and Siteleaf together. When users first visit the page after logging into their account, they will see a simple form. The form contains fields where users can write the title of their website, their name, and other information about their website. Users will also see links below the form where they can upload images or create pages on their website. The links are created by Google Docs; therefore, when users click them, Google Docs will open the corresponding files (for example, images. in its editors (see Figure 1. After users fill out all the required fields and click the Save button, Siteleaf will create pages according to the data entered by users (see Figure 2.
