I have the following scenario:
- User needs to search for some terms in a database
- The resulting terms can be "collected" and then exported
- Some users, before collecting new terms, can compare with the already collected.
The nature of the terms is not relevant, I would like to focus on the "collecting" or "starring" or "targeting" specific terms.
It's an interface that allows the users to search for terms and browse a database. The interesting results can be picked and stored in a collection of interesting terms.
One idea could be to display, below the results table, an extra table with the collected items. In this case the user could consult any time the metrics that come with the items.
Another idea could be to display the items in an extra sidebar.
..Or another idea could be to display the collected items like Gmail is doing with the "Starred" emails (eg: Starred (13) ).
I am now prototyping and wireframing some concepts that will be tested with the users, and I am out of ideas. Is there any solution you would like to share with me?
