Use feedback from customers to improve and fine-tune Feedback from customers very useful for fine-tuning mini tasks. hinckandbos_bc hinckandbosbc

16 Labelling tasks Sometimes a phrase: ‘View current planning applications near to you’ Sometimes individual words: ‘Benefits calculator’ What fits; as specific as it needs to be, at a given time hinckandbos_bc hinckandbosbc

17 Design of mini tasks: buttons One task or two in a page – individual buttons Icons for specific actions, for example: Pencil - apply Question mark – help Padlock - pay hinckandbos_bc hinckandbosbc

18 Design of mini tasks: task supplement For several mini tasks Consistent position in page Not static – currently considering how to improve design, position in page hinckandbos_bc hinckandbosbc

19 Listen to feedback Use all feedback to make changes to our tasks, for example: Emails from customers Take up campaign Tweaked frequently hinckandbos_bc hinckandbosbc

20 Finding tasks Search engine optimised for top tasks For example, ‘pay council tax’ returns the top task ‘how to pay council tax’ Top tasks are in the A to Z For example, ‘Council tax – pay’ Link to top tasks available in all pages – visitors won’t necessarily land on the home page hinckandbos_bc hinckandbosbc
