I was doing analysis for a new feature we have ticketed in Jira yesterday and thought, “Wow, I sure could use the advice of a designer.” So I texted @gschmidt, and we had a brief discussion, and it was very helpful.
Perhaps we should have a process for sending Jira tickets for UX design that doesn’t rely on who the devs may have met at the Implementer’s Conference?
I defer to @c.antwi, Greg, and any other designers here, but my starting-point of an idea would be that
- there should be a status on Jira “needs design”
- devs should send tickets to that status as appropriate
- OpenMRS should have a set of designers that monitor and work on the tickets in that status
I think I recall someone at some point suggesting that there be a designer equivalent to the “dev-n” designations? Perhaps that could tie into this really nicely?
