The study of Christopher Bryan and Gregory Walton mentioned in another answer is interesting but there is not a universal rule of which is the best. Sometimes you might want to show immediacy and use verbs. Some other times you might need to have nouns for things that are related to identity. The only thing that could help you here is empathy: Take a ...

On iOS at least, a picker view (technically named UIPickerView) is commonly used for presenting a list and making a selection. This view is typically presented from the bottom of the screen. You can get something like this:

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 ...

I think there's no right or wrong answer here. The Google Material guidelines are great and in-depth, but it's very much 'Google's' design principles and mightn't necessarily translate. For example, if you're using an icon as the primary way of distinguishing between options, you'd want them to be relatively big, perhaps bigger than the text. Here the ...

Reminds me of an nngroup article on four iOS Design Rules to Break. They recommend placing a submit button at the bottom of the page (you'll find the rationale in the article): Display the form Submit button (or equivalent) under the form fields rather than at the top of the page.

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 ...

There are two reasons why some websites make the logout button difficult to find: Ignorance - for example designed by an engineer who doesn't know about user experience. Deliberate - for example this is dark ux pattern, deliberately designed to confuse because it benefits the company in some way. However in the situation you describe this does not sound ...

Sometimes reset buttons don't look like reset buttons. It's pretty easy to use them as a cancel button, and listen for the reset event. Of course, you'd probably want to confirm that the user is intentionally discarding changes, but that's more of an implementation detail. This site uses a cancel button (it's a link actually), and I bet you never had ...

It is a trade-off . You can think of situations where the accidentally presses the 'Reset' button , but we can also think about the user needs to clear all the fields. All the catastrophic scenarios inherently implies the placement of the Reset button near the Submit button. My advise : keep the Reset button and keep it away from the Submit button .

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 ...

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 ...

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 !

Here is your solution : I tried my best to explain you the solution with example shown below. This is the initial screen. Screen having both single and multiple copy operation interface. But one thing is there, you have to put validation that once after selection of row (ex. in single/multiple copy) unless and until user press the 'copy now' button, ...

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 ...

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 ...

Having related dropdowns placed side by side is probably one of the more confusing UI pattern. You can never predict how a user would interact with 2 dropdowns and never assume the user will always select the first dropdown follow by the second. What if the user chooses the 2nd dropdown, would it affect the result? 2 dropdowns usually work best with an ...

I think Abhishek Sharma is on the right track. However, I also think the following isn't clear: When I look at the above, it's now clear to me that I've selected Create a live photo, but it's not clear to me what the Video | Photo option is for? I guess it wouldn't take long to figure out, especially if you're using it, but I do feel it's missing ...

See the color: At very first look to this image, I can't able to see "Create A live Photo" as it is in dark color over the dark BG. Read more about Colors You have logo in pink color you can use grey color for inactive links. if you want to remove this small triangle you can remove it, it will look good without this also. Hope you understood the ...

I think the cause of the confusion is your colour choice : the use of black and white is so mixed such that it is unclear to the user "including myself" which one is the highlight colour and which is the background colour. So, my advice : change highlight color, it should be unique and obvious .

There are serious usability flaws in the placement of your buttons that none of these answers address. Your Next and Previous buttons are too close together. Users can click one when they mean the other on accident. You should use directional mapping and place the next button to the right. This is what users expect and are used to when they paginate and it ...

Using two different words for the export (e.g., export, save) is a little confusing. It's better to be consistent; make both export or both save. If you're going to specify tag free, separate that from the action. Here are some formatting alternatives: EXPORT | TAG FREE or EXPORT (TAG FREE) EXPORT | WITH TAG or EXPORT (WITH TAG) Watermarks are fairly ...

All of your examples are verbs: sign, register, donate, be Regarding click-rates; any answer given will be results for a different user base. The only way to truly know what is more successful for your use case would be to do A/B testing with your users, and study the metrics/measures related to your site. Perhaps you could use general statistics if it ...

Be a voter > Vote now Christopher Bryan and Gregory Walton (2011) conducted a study for understanding if using a noun or verb statement have an influence on user motivation. According to the results of their study, participants in noun group expressed significantly more interest, 62.5%, in registering vote than participants in the verb group, 38.9%. ...

Why are you using 'Export' word in red button and 'Save' in text Button? I see a good approch. But Text Button looks very different, I thought it will have different funtionality. Both buttons belong to same group. So design keeping consistency. See above, it looks like both are clickable and are buttons.
