Boost your development team
An image is worth a thousand words, so take screenshots. Even better: take and annotate screenshots!
On macOS I use Annotate which is super handy for taking and annotating screenshots. You can also pixelate parts of the screenshot if they contain sensitive data.
On iOS, starting at iOS 11 you can take and annotate screenshots anywhere! Just take a screenshot by pressing the home and sleep/wake buttons at the same time, and starting at iOS 11 you will see a thumbnail of the screenshot on the screen. If you ignore it, it will disappear shortly, but if you tap on it you can draw on it!
Team, you made a great work building this skyscraper. Just a minor thing, we knew from the very beginning we needed it in a different location, so just move it, ok?
Many times knowing something in advance and doing it in a different way (like choosing a different location for a building) makes no (or little) difference from a development perspective, but once it’s done it’s hard to change.
A good example for this is when you will need multiple something. Such as: a user should be able to log in with multiple email addresses. Or a user should be able to have multiple projects, etc. Designing it like that from the beginning would be a lot simpler than adding that later.
Listen to the people with experience
Ignoring good advice creates a bad atmosphere.
