A work list displays a collection of items a user needs to process. Working through the list usually involves reviewing details of the items and taking action. In most cases, the user has to either complete a work item or delegate it. The work list is a versatile floor plan that offers three main variants: a simple work list, a work list with tabs, and a work list with one or more KPI tags.

As a senior designer at SAP, one of my main responsibilities was to help in the development of SAP’s Fiori design system. As a senior designer, I owned 6 U.I. components where I defined the user experience and interactions from concept stages to production. I worked with product owners, product managers and users to design and test each component to ensure it meets business and user needs.
A New Design System Called SAP Fiori
The Cloud has made it possible for users to access data, applications, and services over the Internet, and eliminates the need for costly hardware, such as hard drives and servers. With the growing demand of businesses wanting to run via the cloud; SAP needed to rethink their current line of business applications and redesign them for the cloud. SAP began to develop a brand new set of business applications called “Fiori”.
SAP launch pad created with the Fiori design system.
