How a UX designer work in a data science oriented project?

I am a UX designer in a AI research team in financial banking system. We are doing half data science oriented projects and half research work on AI.

Most of our projects are on the credit or client score prediction, financial distress prediction, etc. They are pretty much data science oriented projects. I am the only UX designer in our team. It is interesting to participate in the data science project and learn new things. However, I had zero experience in working with data scientists.

The key difference between a software development project and data science project is that for a software development project, we build things that satisfy the user’s needs, and there is always a delivery. However, in data science project, we do not know if it is possible to predict something, because data scientists need to experiment and try to find the insight from the data. Data science solutions do not always come with a delivery.

I found it is relatively easy to identify users from a software development project, because we have specific requirement to make, while it is hard to identify users from a data science project, as sometimes people just want to see if it is possible to do something with data science, the target is so ambiguous.

Most of my work is dashboard design in analytics tools like Tableau, as a UI designer. Sometimes, it is also repetitive, I am kind of fed up with such things. I want to do some more interesting things like user research, to know what users think, how they behave and then experimenting.

Here is my dilemma:

I am interested to work in such a data science team, however, I do not have idea how to work with data scientists and what is my role as a designer in the data science project besides a UI designer.

Does anyone have the experience as mine, and share some of your thoughts or ideas with me, please?

Thanks 🙂

Get URL of list item attachment from Sharepoint Designer 2010

I’ve found tons of questions where people are looking to get the URL of an attached file after the fact via CSOM or JSOM, or some other means.

I am looking to get the URL from Sharepoint Designer, and then insert that URL in an email from a Sharepoint Designer Workflow.

To clarify, I have a list where users are adding attachments (1 attachment) to their list item (within a Sharepoint 2010 environment). I have a workflow that sends an email after a new row is created, and basically prints all of the columns in the email.

Here is where I am hung up. I also want the attached item URL to be shown in the email.

I can see the structure of the URL will be:

http://example.com/mysite/Lists/TestList/Attachments/ID/FileName.txt 

And since I’ll know the domain, site name, list name, and ID of the row created, I can build my URL a decent amount. But, I don’t know the file name. If I could get the file name from Sharepoint designer, I could build the URL.

At the moment, the only thing I see within Sharepoint Designer is a boolean value if my list item has attachments or not.

To clarify, I do not want to attach the file to the email that gets sent as a part of the work flow. I’d like to link to the item that is already upload to my Sharepoint list and is attached to a specific row item.


EDIT:

FYI to others who might be looking for a solution to this, although I did this was a while ago, I believe this was how I solved the problem.

I ended up using a custom JS callback after the List Item was created. This callback would update the row I just created with the filename(s) as a concatenated string in a separate column.

So the logic was something like:

  1. User clicks “Create New”, and a SP Modal window would open, with my form loaded in the modal window. (using a modal was integral, because I could attach JS listeners to its onSubmit function).
  2. I’d attach a listener to the modal window, so on Submit or Cancel, I’d run a function.
  3. If the user canceled, the function just exited.
  4. If the user submitted, I’d check to see if an attachment was added to the row item. If so, using JS I could get the file name(s), then concat those names together with a separator (I think I used a colon, :, since that can’t be used in a file name) into a string and write that string to an empty column within the same row.
  5. I’d also mark a boolean on the row to true that I’d check in the SP Designer Workflow. When true, my Workflow would actually run.
  6. The workflow would have access to that col, could split the string, and I was able to build the URL string.

The problem with this is that, I couldn’t add items to the row manually. I have to use this custom Modal interface so I’d have the ability to run updates to the row via JS.

That is to say, this solution was 100% client side. I’d rather have a server side solution, so adding to the row manually or through this custom Modal interface wouldn’t matter. But alas, at the time I didn’t have access to change things server-side, so this client-side solution was good enough for me.

Effective communication between the web designer and client

Hey everyone, hope you are having a great day

I believe communication is one of the main factors which contributes to great design, leading to a successful long-term and maintaining cooperation. On the other side, the lack of communication could potentially lead to unpleasant cooperation, resulting in the consequences such as lowering the rate of your work, a client trying to direct the designing process or even worse, devaluing your expertise.

Given the importance of communication, I am…

Sharepoint Designer 2013 trouble joining lists

I am attempting to join two lists, the idea is that I want to have two different sets of permissions for different parts of a list. I know column based security is not available so I figured by having two separate lists with a single view would allow different people to view/edit different data.

My problem is when trying to perform the joined data source via sharepoint designer 2013 most tutorials explain that after selecting two lists I can pick a shared column to use for the joining. This option however does not appear to me, the lists simply “join” and when the joined data source is displayed, it displays only one of the list’s data while the columns from the other list are empty.
