User Testing was conducted to determine which links should be prominently displayed to minimize the scanning needed to find links for frequently performed tasks.
A survey of frequency of use was conducted to determine which links were used the most. These links should be placed at the top and on the left side of the screen, since these are the first places people look for information on a web page.
The first user test was a survey set up on Survey Monkey
to collect data on the frequency of use of each of the links on intranet home page.
The table to the right shows the most frequently used links sorted in descending order, with the raw frequency data for each participant, and the average use over the previous 2 months.
