I have to design , a website for a inventory storage firm. The items that are displayed , have three different status 1) In the store 2) Outside 3) Under Process,
When user , visits the homepage, and performs a search , the items will be highlighted in Green, Red and yellow. To inform the user that the specific color means a status , such as 'if highlighted in green, it means its in the store', I have kept the status associated with the color at the top of the page position fixed.
Is this an ideal way of informing users, the meaning of color? should I group them in a table?
