App Component Requirement - App footer FS
The keyword shall indicates a requirement statement.
The keywords may, could, and should are not requirements but rather indicate items related to requirements that are worthy of consideration.
The following terms are used to describe specific users of the application:
  • Unauthenticated (not logged in) users are known as visitors.
  • Authenticated (logged in) users are known as peers.
The following terms are used to describe levels of user entitlement within the application:
  • A browser is view only (except for account creation and logging in) and used for visitors.
  • An enjoyer can interact with the market, including buying and optionally re-selling NFTs, but can’t make new NFTs.
  • A tenant can create NFTs and sell them in addition to what the enjoyer can do.
  • A client is an administrator level user with all entitlements.

5. Context

The pages of the app will need to conform to a sensible template or structural form to ensure the delivery of a consistent user experience (UX) across the app. The app footer is the bottom portion of nearly every page in the app. It provides users quick access to the most frequently used functions. Users look to the bottom of the page for detailed navigation, app-wide settings, help information, company contact information, and legal / regulatory docs.

6. Design Wire-frames

The wire-frames listed below are meant to represent the application footer page fragment in various states. These are provided to assist in understanding of what features may look like or their potential use. Final designs may be vastly different from these images.
