I have a list of exactly 2 steps a user can follow either the first or the second can be completed first, both have to be completed for the next action to occur.
I have large circular icons which glow green or red depending on whether the action under the specific item is properly completed. Beside each icon is the field name (what to do here).
My question is what is the best iconography to represent these separate items. I originally had just a grey circle that glowed green or red, but I feel it is very bland and doesn't get the point across that this is a field (remember this is not a form UI i'm working on).
I was thinking of putting some distinct icon inside the grey circles, maybe a simple shape (i.e. Circle, Square etc.)? Or since the way the items are placed seems like the list is ordered, so using letters which are pretty distinct (i.e. "A" and "B") then allow users to complete it in which ever order they like?
