As a design tool, Doors Diagram helps to faster and easier determine what obstacles are
for users on their way to successfully navigate
a website design.
Using the Doors Diagram to visualize a process of a user passing all the way from the starting point to the final goal could help us correct these user experience issues. This diagram is much like a tool in service design, such as customer journey maps and others.

Take the challenge of taking your Google Analytics alerts to the next level, from its native unattractive and undigestible e-mails… :
…to your own ones, providing only key insights to what may be wrong with your Analytics traffic and including a visual chart of your data :
In a 28-pages PDF doc I will guide you from A to Z through creating your own tool using :
The tool consists in creating spreadsheets in which we’ll be pulling data automatically from the Analytics API, updating traffic charts in real time, and then we’ll set up an e-mail template that will trigger only if the Analytics data in the spreadsheet reaches a threshold
we have defined. That way the
alert e-mail will contain :
Also, a ‘settup’ spreadsheet
allows to easily turn alerts on
and off with a single click.

// This project was one of my internship missions : I had to think out a new way for our sales managers to receive alerts in case of major variations in their clients’ sites traffic - indeed the native Intelligence Events alerts had led to e-mail blindness from their team.
I am very proud of this project and its results, as I had to research and experiment quite a lot before coming up with a functional Proof of Concept : from mastering automated spreadsheet reports to customizing the e-mail body to make it readable, through inserting a chart as an image within the e-mail, setting up an alert ON / OFF option, and many other small or bigger issues… !
The whole work was a great challenge for me, especially when knowing I had to use pieces of code from different sources and then to make do on my own in order to make it work as I wanted ! So believe me, I was really happy when this tool was validated by my internship mentor for a real-life implementation !
Finally, it was important for me to lay down all the necessary steps to make the tool live : writing a detailled tutorial was quite obvious, and I really think it’s essential to share my process : maybe this can be useful to someone else after all !
Soft skills are personal attributes that describe an individual’s ability to interact with others
- the cluster of personality traits,
social graces, communication,
language, personal habits,
friendliness, and optimism.
Unlike hard skills, which comprise a person’s technical skill set and ability to perform certain functional tasks, soft skills are interpersonal and broadly applicable across job titles and industries. Many soft skills are tied to an individuals’ personalities rather than any formal training, and are thus considered more difficult to develop than hard skills.
