Private Beta and First User Tests

Thanks to outstanding efforts of all team members, we entered private beta yesterday morning with RG10 and SSC.

Yesterday evening I conducted our first proper user test with a senior Industrial Design student and observed many things to improve about our interface, both in SSC and RG10.

In SSC, there are especially problems about users not reading the instructions (even though we have re-worded them numerous times to be short), getting lost because of not reading the instructions then complaining that the system is too complicated. I will need to come up with ways to force users to read first and not jump into doing things.

There are also problems with users starting RG10 for the first time not knowing where to start. The zero states should be defined better. In addition, the feedback is from actions usually not noticed, getting overshadowed with other UI elements. I should make the feedback for RG10 theme more prominent.
