the client I am working with currently has already created interface ideas for the app we are designing. Most of those solutions are naive and form over function. Such is the idea to access a multitude of different kind of information via a timeline. The data you can access includes contract dates, due dates, communication with client service, promotions, campaign material, etc. Basically its a sort of feed, but in their case without the frequency of new data to justify the format.
Since the timeline enforces a sorting by date, it limits the possibilities how to search and access the data.
I am curious if anyone has user-tested a timeline interface or knows of any research that discusses this topic. I wasnt able to find any so far.
Also, any thoughts are welcome!
