I am currently designing a screen for an internal business application, in this screen is a table that contains a lot of orders, each of these orders have many entities associate with it. - Two Internal Employee's - Two different external customers
I have been thinking about adopting a tooltip similar to what outlook and gmail does with their contacts. As the user hovers over the name, a tooltip of actions and important information appears.
If I were to adopt something like this do each of these entity names need to be blue resembling a link? or would it be ok for them to remain grey and as the user hovers over the name it turns blue and underlined?
