All of your accounts, managed, maintained and made easy.
In efforts to make a central location where a user could review, managed and edit all of their subscriptions and accounts, Cabinet was created.
Through prototyping and user-testing, Cabinet is formatted to make everything from creating new accounts, tracking monthly payments, editing or deleting accounts to even just remembering your password. The following is a walkthrough of the process of creating and testing Cabinet.
Through early research I was focused deeply on password managers and their functions. And this negatively impacted my early prototypes. I found that password managers would only hold password and account login information. This proved to be totally unhelpful to anyone wanting more information.
I did realize however that the function of changing and editing within the application (the password for example) was extremely beneficial.
I needed to create an app that gave user's the ability to edit accounts in one secure place.
User Testing & Scenarios (Round One)
This first round of user testing was very telling, and it drastically changed the direction of this project.
I needed to solve the problem on a desktop first. Most subsriptions and new accounts are started in this medium. It will be clearer and will help users better understand the purpose of the program, which is to better manage all accounts and subscriptions.
User Testing & Scenarios (Round Three)
This final round of user testing identified and then fixed the last glaring problems with Cabinet. The pop-up login page on outside websites wasn't working yet. People were confused then the application didn't intervene more. The info groups were struggling too, which helps users input specific emails and information quickly (ei. Junk emails, personal, business).
They were coming last in the creation process, user testing helped me realize that they needed to come first.
The final product was a comprehensive product that was user approved. Cabinet can successfully manage all of your subscription and account needs.
