Quick filtering through tasks

Through directly filtering table data available on page load rather than querying the database, searching for a task, pet or date was very fast.

Adding new pets or tasks from the dashboard

A user's dashboard has everything they may need: adding pets, tasks, getting a day's task list, and editing and deleting a pet.

See today's list of tasks to be done

The user will be automatically taken to today's to-do list, where he or she will have the option to add, delete, or edit a task, as well as navigate to the previous or next day.

or: what I would like to implement given more time
  • Enable marking tasks complete from All Tasks page

  • Add different profile pictures for pets, depending on species

  • Enable password change/reset

Lessons learned

  • Communicating and tracking issues is critical for a team. Even without Jira, Github projects helps keep track of what needs to be done.

  • Having a clear view of the final product is invaluable to guide decisions, especially when there isn't a team lead

  • On the technical aspect, it took a while to get all team members up to speed so it was great practice for handling merge conflicts
