Create a timeline chart for the User Profiles project for sharing with management
You are the project manager / product manager / business analyst for an already launched Android
App for a Premium Subscription Video service. The current Android app supports a single paying user
account. In this service, the user is not able to watch any video at all without having a subscription.
New App Feature : Multiple User Profiles
Multiple User Profiles allow different members of the paying user’s friends and family to have their own
personalized App experience, built around the TV shows and Movies they enjoy. This new feature will
allow a fixed number of individual profiles within a single paid subscription account.
Each profile allows for its own:
UI Language preference
Featured and recommended titles based on profile preferences and viewing habits.
Enable/Disable Push Notifications
The subscription user account can set a profile to be a kids profile with appropriate parental control
rating allowance set. This is to prevent a kid getting access to inappropriate content for their age.
