After having many large clients start using the platform, Lifeworks found that the newsfeed had a issue of too much noise. We looked improving the newsfeed and adding in user groups and teams to the platform.
Reducing the noise
The original newsfeed design was 2 columns, in order to focus the users attention and create an easier reading experience we changed the interface from 2 columns to a single column layout. We also looked at how we can optimize the screen space for mobile minimizing the give recognition widget.
Adding in filters
We also added in filtering, so that users can filter through to find posts quickly.
