Outcome Display

1.  Schedule details page consistency improvement

By improving the consistency of schedule details pages on App and PC, users can have the same experience when using products at both ends, reduce learning costs and improve office efficiency

What I learned

1️⃣ Determine function priorities based on data and scenario analysis
2️⃣ Determine the placement of buttons according to Gutenberg's principle
3️⃣ Principle of segment controls and tab bar
4️⃣ Difference between forwarding and sharing

2.  Enter a group session from the schedule

By adding a group session entry to an agenda, users can quickly locate the group to which the agenda belongs, improving communication efficiency.

What I learned

1️⃣ Consider the placement of new features in terms of function attributes, user decision-making process, function extensibility and product level
2️⃣ When adding new features, consider the impact on existing features
3️⃣ Order of important buttons, from left to right or right to left?

3. Add out-of-group members to a group schedule

By adding out-of-group members on the agenda page to let users quickly create a meeting

What I learned

1️⃣ Analyze competitive products from the perspective of five elements of user experience
2️⃣ Learn the composition and use of selectors
3️⃣Function is determined from multiple dimensions of technical complexity, user requirements, function extensibility and product requirements

Don't Regret, Retrospect!

-What I learned
1, Great communication skill is key to effective collaboration.
What I have gained the most is the learning of The Pyramid Principle. Anything can be reduced to a central argument supported by three to seven arguments,These primary arguments can also be arguments themselves, supported by three to seven secondary arguments, and so on, like a pyramid.During the internship, nearly half the time,i was communicating with people in different fields. As an interaction designer in a large tech company, I needed to communicate with PM, visual designers and programmers and also coworked with their peers and first and second level leaders within the group. Therefore, excellent expression ability is very important. Through deliberate use of pyramid training,my verbal and written communication skills have been improved during the internship.
2,Think top-down, act bottom-up.
In the first month, I was assigned several simple jobs like collating insisting component library or sorting banners of all sorts of applications. It was boring and I did not think it could reflect my ability. However I tried to put my feet in my leader's shoes, I would probably also not give the novice a very important job at first, then I saw these jobs as a chance to prove myself a reliable and competent person. I tried to finish my job as a senior did. To collating the components library, I communicate with my design leader and programmers to find out how to category the library that could work the most efficiently. To sort the banner, I also learned how to name the image in a standard way. About 1 month later, I was assigned with the Kylin application store which is the most project at present.
