TLDR: No, it won't hurt user experience. The situation that a person needs to reset the entire form, is actually quite rare. The situation in which a person accidentally presses reset, when looking for a confirmation button instead, happens pretty often though. When this happens, users get annoyed. It can even lead to them not finishing your form, because ...

Yes more is better, but more brings clutter Obviously the best option would be icon and label together. You are probably asking this question as you want to keep the UI clean, but there are too many features. You could try what is known as progressive reduction ...

I recommend looking at this article which talks about a A\B test that was done on seeing the conversion rates while using a solid call to action vs a ghost button in emails. To quote the article Test A used our baseline newsletter template, which includes ghost buttons. Test B replaced these ghost CTAs with solid blue buttons. Everything else about ...

Let the user select as many records they want to; just let the count below keep increasing/decreasing as per selection/deselection. You won't require the actions column if there is only one action on the grid like 'Copy'. I'm assuming it's a popup so the placement of count and 'Copy Selected' button is ok. If this is not a popup then consider moving the ...

What is the ideal scenario for test and save buttons? Another way of approaching this is instead of having two separate buttons for 'test' and 'save', is to incorporate the test connection into the save functionality. This way it becomes more of a validation process (the system prevents you from failing) rather than putting the burden on the user to ensure ...

I think the only situation where a Reset button might help the user is when you've pre-populated a form with a set of default values (possibly copied from another form based on some assumptions). In all other cases it adds an additional choice that is most likely to be unnecessary and unintentional, with unfortunate results. An alternative interface you ...

Icons are meant to be readily recognizable visual metaphors for actions or features. Once the user becomes familiar with the meaning, it's faster to decode (a good) symbol than to read text. Other advantages include conservation of space. Some functions can be quite verbose when written out - especially in certain languages. (On that note, if I was ...

In a Web Form it would be better if virtually all Reset buttons were removed. This button almost never helps to improve UX, but often hurts them. The worst problem about Reset is if users click the button by mistake when they wanted to click Submit. Oops! All text deleted! So its easy to explain why nowadays Reset is no longer required. We can also add a ...

Here is the answer. You should give such kind of option like filter, search,export to above the table. because if you keep it inside the table that you will have bad interface as well as you can't manage space properly. So here is the solution I usually use in my work and luckily my boss never refuse it to use !

To answer one part of your question: Should I allow connection to be saved without testing? A good design would probably be to automatically test when the user presses save (if it hasn't been tested already). A related question is: should you allow the source to be saved even if the test fails? I probably would allow this (with a confirmation dialog ...
