I am designing an an internal company application where uploads must be added to the user. I originally started with a simple form, but noticed that the number of clicks could be cut down for the user using a fake button approach.
I came up with this:
When you click the Add Attachments button the file-chooser dialog comes right up and once you select the file the form will automatically submit. Now, there are a couple concerns I have about this approach and how it may effect how user-friendly it is.
- In Internet Explorer 10 a double click seems to be required so:
- Would it be better to use a standard form?
- Could the wording possibly be changed to imply a double click?
- Even if it is single click, does it make it harder to use because it isn't expected?
Also, IE is almost the exclusive browser in the company as it is the default installed unless they are using a Mac.
