When is it a best practice to allow for checkboxes to appear on the left/right and side of a table?
A wireframe came across my desk looking similar to the wireframe below. The justification the team gave for its placement is the checkboxes on the right so they are close to the action buttons at the bottom.
When comparing this to systems like Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail they tend to place checkboxes on the left instead. Is it better to place these check-boxes on the left? Or would it bet better to leave them near their corresponding buttons on the right?
