- Don't hide or disable menu items? 6 answers
I have a web page set up wizard that guides a user through several steps to create an object. One of the steps in the wizard requires the users to pick via check boxes a property to their object. They can bypass this stage if they choose not to select any. We are introducing a new object type that does not support one of the check box options; however it may in the future.
I would like to re-purpose the same set-up wizard so the UI and flow are similar, if not exact. However, I am unsure if I should disable the check box option that is unavailable or if I should hide it all together...
It would seem odd to me that this set up wizard is missing information compared to the previous set up wizard. However, there is no way to select this option anyway because it isn't supported. Would it be more confusing to the user when it's missing? Or more frustrating that it's shown but I cannot choose it? Thoughts?
