Bizyhood is an engagement platform for hyper-local businesses. The Business Dashboard is where business owners spend their time managing their business details, events, and promotions and interacting with their customers.
The old Dashboard Overview was something of a placeholder – a purely text page introducing the dashboard, but giving no direction. Without that, the bounce rate was incredibly high. SessionCam showed users almost immediately closing the window.
This obviously was not acceptable. A new Dashboard Overview was needed to guide users through the application and show them what to do.
A collapsible sidebar navigation was introduced. It's organized by functionality so that everything is right where it's expected to be. It's also completely responsive for those on smaller devices.
Literally everything on the page is a call to action. If there's nothing for the user to do when they're signed in, the design takes advantage of this and gives them something to do.
Upon signing in for the first time, the user is presented with a guided tour overlay. It guides the user through a full setup of their profile and prompts them to get their onboarded. It's dismissable, for those who find such things annoying.
One of our most touted features is the ability to claim multiple businesses. At any time, the user can easily switch between their owned businesses or claim ownership of another.
The final Dashboard Overview incorporates pieces from every corner of the dashboard and gives the user a great overview of what's happening with their page and what needs to be done.
Since a decent amount of our users are coming from mobile, it's very important that all features of the dashboard are accessible and usable on mobile devices.
