I designed Seibels as a part of a design challenge. I was tasked to create an app for Janet, a manager in charge of a project. Her team needed insight into all project documents, their statuses, and who was responsible for them. They also needed to be able to select each document for additional detail, and to complete it in the system.
The name Seibels came from Edwin G. Seibels, the inventor of the vertical filing cabinet. I felt it was a fitting name for a document management app.
The Project view is centered around the documents within a project, and their status. You can see documents that need your attention, as well as all other documents, their titles, the file type, who’s working on them, and the current status. Status is indicated with a stop light arrangement, with red being documents that need to be reviewed or initiated, yellow for documents that are under review or are processing, and green for approved and completed documents.
Janet is able to view document details, and quickly review edits before approval.
Once Janet reviews and accepts the edit, she can then quickly approve the document and complete it in the system.
