I created a visual that highlights how the account creation process makes the user-experience difficult and what can be done to improve it. I propose a simple solution using usability heuristics and design standards as some guidelines. See gifs of the problem and the final solution.
The problem is that Workday’s account creation system makes understanding the password requirements very difficult by hiding them until a user fails to enter the correct password structure. This leads the user to spend additional time and enter the password again. In sum, it's frustrating to enter a complex password twice!
Using basic usability heuristics (eg. Neilson Heuristics and The Understanding Group's Heuristics) and design standards, presenting the required information (eg. password requirements) and password strength upfront will reduce errors which can reduce frustration, improve the speed of the form submission and reduce abandonment.
