The problem

The problem

There is no existing tool for creative planning approaches.

The customer needed a tool to plan his calendar, so he figured out a unique approach to planning where the whole year is visible on a single screen at one time, with months revealed in subsequent rows.

The solution

The problem

A personalized calendar application.

In the first stage we prepared a partially interactive demo, which demonstrated that the client’s concept was workable. At this stage, we had already made some improvements to the layout and reset some of the project goals.
The second step was to convert the static demo into a dynamic application, which we did in an agile methodology, where the end client took the role of Product Owner. The client was responsible for creating user stories and adding them to a Trello board, while development teams converted those stories into programming tasks and set estimates for them. After the estimate was finished the client prioritized the tasks, separating what really mattered from those that weren’t necessary and could be postponed.
The technology used in the project: – NodeJS – to provide rest API written in an ExpressJS framework, using the Sequelize library for connecting to a MySQL database
– Angular 5 on the frontend, together with Material UI and a lot of other support libraries.
The solution a PC application and a landing Page in WordPress, to be able to become familiar with the project and sign in for file access.

The improvement

The improvement

Simple and useful functionalities for planning in a calendar application.

Yearful’s calendar is a simple app that makes high-level planning easy. It functions by clicking on the calendar grid to select a date range, then assigning it a category. Users can add multiple categories to map out their plan for the year, allowing them to track recurring events, and color-code them to stand out. They can share their calendar with colleagues, friends or family to make it easy to plan get-togethers or meetings. There’s also the possibility to add multiple calendar tabs to keep year plans organized, or to track different multi-layered projects. Additionally, public holidays for UK, US, AUS, NZ & CAN are already pre-loaded.

The result

The result

Good organization of tasks in the client’s company.

The project was successful, though it took quite a long time, satisfying the customer by creating the exact digital tool they desired. Everything was possible because the client was tech savy and trusted in the project’s management method.
