Money Management Dashboard
Module: UI / Product Design | Level: Hard | Estimated Time: 3-4 days
Skills: Web Design, Layout, Visual Design
Great dashboards don’t just summarize—they tell stories. Users can navigate, understand, and interpret high volumes of information at a glance. It becomes easy to monitor overall trends, small changes, and relationships between different data.
In this brief, you’ll design a dashboard for a money management tool. Begin by considering what your users want to do:
- Track spending
- Budget and save money
- Review investments
- Pay bills
- Set financial goals
- See credit card rewards
Then, sketch ways to organize the most essential information users need. For ideas and guidance, try browsing platforms like Betterment, Wealthfront, and Mint. How do their dashboards help users watch their progress and accomplish goals? Common features may include:
- Account/investment summaries
- Spending trends
- Current bills
- Budget/financial goal overview
- Credit score
Visual design and layout are key. Whether your dashboard is one page or several, it should start with the big picture and let users go deeper if needed. Too much visualization can be overwhelming, though graphs and charts are excellent ways to help users process data. Ultimately, it’s most important to be approachable and clear.
Present a (web) prototype of a money management user dashboard. You can create your own money management platform, or redesign an existing one.
