We followed the Agile Development approach as we went through multiple iterations to identify client requisites, design, develop and test the application. Below are some primary project demands and challenges placed with client and project team collaboration.
Our client’s target audience is available across various operating systems and devices. Thus, the very first requirement was to develop a platform-independent application. The app must run on all Windows, macOS, and Linux-based machines without showing any other error.
In addition, our client wants to reduce the maintenance cost of apps created for different platforms.
Direct Communication Feature
On the Q&A portal, experts register themselves and provide solutions to the queries uploaded by other people. Anyone who wants to interact one-to-one with a professional will have the option to communicate through chat and mail.
Moreover, according to the project goal, users with a paid membership will only be eligible for directly communicating with experts.
The next challenge our team identified was to craft a discussion board. Any user with or without membership must be eligible to navigate to the discussion option and create a board. The only requirement to create a new board is to write down the question and post it on the feed.
Additionally, the users must be able to upload PNG, JPEG, and PDF files on the discussion board to provide an efficient answer.
Availability in Multiple Languages
According to our client’s business goal, they want to expand operations in different countries and enhance customer relationships. For achieving this objective, web-app localization was their primary demand. It will allow the user to select from various available languages to change the default settings.
In addition, the app must allow end-users and experts to upload questions and answers in their preferred language.
The next challenge is creating a Q&A web app was to embed an in-built module, enabling experts to conduct online meetings and events. Our client needed a meeting module, offering more than 500 participants to join together. Moreover, the host must be able to share files during the event and remove any participant in case of unlawful activity.
Secure Data Sharing and Payment Mechanism
As our client wants to deploy this application on different continents, users can chat, send emails, and attach files in forums. It makes essential to protect the data flow from illegitimate actors and infected files.
Besides this, the end-user will have an option to buy the membership to unlock additional features. So, our ally demanded a secure payment gateway, preventing a data breach.
Search and Filtering
Providing searching and filtering features to users was a primary requisite of this software development project. As per our client, it must enable users to search about experts in a specific niche and filter out already published questions and answers on any topic.
Moreover, the stakeholders should filter upcoming events, attending events, and subscriptions using the filter option.
