Background Information - the current app

INNOVATION pitch

We help people who use the Post - its app to plan trips, events, projects, create

To-do Lists and expenses, collaborate with others by providing templates and a

framework for collaboration

GOALS

Design Goals

Help users have all their trip, event, project or tasks data at one place

Create an effective and simple framework for multiple users to collaborate on a single

project, trip, event or even a simple To-do List

Allow users to jot down short notes for themselves

Provide users with an interface that makes organizing activities for themselves and

with others easy and enjoyable

Allow users to choose how they want to accomplish tasks by offering several options

Provide pre-designed templates for users to help ease the planning process

Provide a simple experience for users to add expenses to a board

Business Goals

Generate more traffic on the App

Introduce ads on the App 

If the number of users using the App increases, a subscription model can be introduced. This model will make sure users are able to create as many boards as they want and access all existing templates

Gathering information on user behavior to enhance the application delving further into the app's collaborative and financial aspects

HOW MIGHT WE STATEMENTS

How might we seamlessly integrate trip planning features into the Post-Its app, allowing users to create and organize Post-its for each aspect of their trip, such as itinerary, packing list, and budget?

How might we transform the Post-Its app into an event planning hub, enabling users, to create, manage, and collaborate on event details using interactive Post-its for tasks, schedules, and guest lists?

How might we empower users to effectively plan and manage projects using the Post-Its app, providing a structured framework for task organization, progress tracking, and team collaboration through Post-its?

How might we enhance the Post-Its app with comprehensive To-do List

functionalities, allowing users to break down tasks into manageable steps, set priorities, and track progress with colorful and customizable Post-its?
