I am working on a Web Application (not a website with forms). It is a fairly exhaustive system with 250+ unique pages design. It has pages/sections/ settings where the main “actions” to be performed are typically as
- Save/ Save Tab/ Save Section
Or another example is I have multiple settings options where I create many “New” entities –
- New Form
- New Customer
- New Rule
- Add New
- Add Account
I can opt for simplification and consistency – But I land up on counter intuitive scenarios where I click “Add New” and end up Deleting/ Banning some entity.
I classify buttons into broad 2 categories –
- Most Likely Desired Action – Save, Submit, Apply
- Housekeeping – Reset, Revert, Cancel
Any tips on adopting a naming convention for growing Web Application?
