Design your onboarding experience from the start.

  • Substance
  • Structure
  • Connection

Substance

What must be delivered?

Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow - Aesop

Clearly specify all inputs and desired outputs.

Structure

Make things flow. Have enough structure to enable flow and communicate intent but flexible enough to allow for creativity in solving problems with new ways of thinking.

Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their works collaborate with the creator - Antoni Gaudi

  • Flow - How do your structures enable flow?
  • Fluidity and scale - Can others easily pick up work where other leave off?
  • Creativity - Have you enabled experimentation?
  • Momentum - How have you safeguarded against inertia?

Connection

Focus on your audience to make things feel right
