With tight timelines in place, our development teams were focused on building and back-end priorities. In several portions of the application, there was no feedback to help users understand that their action was being processed.
Proof of Concept
As part of a design for a health care application, I designed a custom progress loading animation to display to users when a long action was in progress. My goal was to provide something interesting for users to look at while the application was processing their request, to provide them with immediate confirmation that the action they performed was being executed.
