adding a coach from your profile

14th March 2012

adding a coach is nothing new on ka, but this little piece of functionality does have a new home (and mostly new implementation)!

one of our values at ka (literally and officially. it is written in a document somewhere.) is that shipping beats perfection. so yes, we pare down features, as 10 user happiness units now is worth more than 11 happiness units later. once we’ve given users the 10 though, it’s not a bad idea to give them the extra 1!

cue screenshots to show where i drew the line between v1 and v1.00000001.

check out that new section in the profile nav! there used to be an add-a-coach link in the site’s footer, but no longer. you might expect to see more things pertaining to You appear in Your Profile, In The Future.

v1, fairly similar to the old add-a-coach page’s layout. we released this a couple weeks ago.

hm, how about one list?

take away the zebra stripes, add a dash of color.

maybe to the left?

never mind, let’s move it back. and on hover, turn that button *orange*. we released this shortly after v1.

i also made a few changes since v1 to the interaction to hopefully make it Feel Right (like disabling inputs, clearing the textfield in various cases, showing error notifications, and maybe more!). alas, those don’t show up so well in screenshots.

try to add a coach, and let me know how it goes!
