I am developing a web application that, in a nutshell, does the following: it takes something from A, does an operation with it and place the output in B, just like a converter. This process can be replicated in a way that, at a given moment, several operations are running.
From this description, three types of information were defined:
- Progress (dynamic)
- Notification (static)
- Action (interactive)
So my question is the following: can I mix these three types of information into one single screen? Something like a wall, a dynamic list of processes, notifications and actions that can be filtered according to its type?
Someone suggested me this, but I keep getting the feeling that it's wrong to mix things that are different and that deserve different attention. On the other side, having all the information in a single place (and with filters) would centralize all the information that user needs to know in one single place.
I've also seen that Android does something similar. It has simple notifications, notifications with actions and ongoing notifications, as you can see here.
So what is your opinion about this?
