Running Activities

Activity new/resume Intermediate UI

  • Previous dialogue based design File:Design mockup 100710 home overlay-2 christian.pdf.
  • Design sketch
    Sketch showing proposed features for an intermediate Activity start view
  • Activity start UI flow
    Flow from Home view through to the Activity. Are all Home Activity icons now in a monochrome state, or perhaps in the user colours (the New option should then be in the user colours as well). Note the pulser animation is now on a black background to be more seamless with the Start UI

Requirements

  • Must appear quickly for immediate feedback of Activity icon click/touch. No more than 1000ms, ideally some visual update should happen before 100ms (e.g. white blanking before we currently see the activity pulsing icon draw). Some UI content, such as image thumbnails, can be delayed as long as the rest of the UI & intermediate thumb placeholders are there.
  • Must allow closing/stopping/cancelling so the user can back out quickly if they change their mind
  • Should cope with the user using the Frame or alt-tab to switch elsewhere without completing the dialogue, and possibly returning later

Starting a new activity

  • Clicking/touching an Activity .xo bundle in Journal
  • Clicking/touching an Activity icon in Home Favourite, or Home Activity List view, and clicking/touching "Start new" from the proposed Activity new/resume intermediate UI

Resuming an activity

  • Clicking/touching an activity instance icon in the Journal
  • Clicking/touching an Activity icon in Home Favourite, or Home Activity List view, and clicking/touching an activity instance from the proposed Activity new/resume intermediate UI
  • Clicking/touching a shared Activity icon in the Neighbourhood or Group view

Switching to an active activity

  • Clicking/touching an Activity icon in the Frames top edge
  • Clicking an activity instance icon in the Journal that is already active
  • Clicking/touching an active shared Activity icon in the Neighbourhood or Group view
  • Clicking/touching an Activity icon in Home Favourite, or Home Activity List view, and clicking/touching an already active activity instance from the proposed Activity new/resume intermediate UI

Stop activity

Stopping an activity should return to the Home View.

Manage Activities

Home List View should continue to be used to manage Activities (favourite, un-favourite, erase). Installing an Activity is still done via the Journal (e.g. clicking on a .xo bundle, or downloading one from a Friend or via Browse).
