I think the expected behaviour really depends on the categories of option available & the language of the answers themselves could be enough to prompt the user on what to expect. For answers that fit in the same category, users would normally expect an OR search: What type of take-away would you like? Chinese Mexican Pizza Since all ...

What about a + next to the country name to open it? This is a fairly standard paradigm. Another option would be to make clicking on the country both show the country results and open the regions for that country. This may be the clearest option on a desktop site, where the navigation is generally displayed next to the content. It wouldn't translate to ...

Since your question is, specifically, Is there any evidence to suggest a user expects one behaviour over the other? I will answer that, and not say "do this one instead of the other", also because I can only speak for myself, and my perceptions. When I read the choices, I was on the fence. Does it mean "I want the thing(s) to have this, and this, and ...

You should probably only have a search for AND. Generally, people have an idea of what they want, doodar1 and doodar3, and they want to make sure that they get it. Having a search for OR may be less useful. I think it's rare to want either thing1 or thing2, but not be particularly concerned if it doesn't actually have thing1 or thing2 - as long as the ...

I don't like repeating AND OR. What if one of those items actually began with one of the terms. I like the two headers Any, All Have also see And Or as the header If the user can specify Any, All then put that in a radio button Either above or below the question

Well, I think the solution here is quite straightforward: use both checkboxes and radio buttons. I think the functionality and difference between the two has been proved and vastly used throughout web design and user experience for many years without disappointment. I would absolutely use radio buttons for the first options array, the OR selection, and ...

The checkbox method meets user expectations One of the most important things to do in any interface development is not confuse the user. Relying on established design patterns, such as checkbox for toggling independent settings, minimizes this risk. Given the purpose of the form, you should keep the checkbox interface because users will understand it. You ...

I assume you should be able to select single students as well. I would seperate the group selection from the student selection something like this: So the top box is like a filter for the students list (e.g. if group C is selected, only students in group C are visible) and in the list students can be selected individually. Hope this helps. :)

One solution would be to separate the groups selection task from the list of students. 1) Show a "Select group(s)" button at the top/bottom of your list. 2) When clicked, open a modal with a scrollable list of groups. 3) Once confirmed, the list of students show which one got selected and it's still editable by hand. Leave the "All students" at the top of ...

If you are going to have the option to sort on it then display it. Put quantity in a separate column with a header. Have the header show the sort column and sort order. Let them change the sort by clicking the header. That wrap of the (2) to the second line Design Home Stockholm is bad. Should have a 2 in a separate column top aligned.

What to Sort On There are a lot of ways a list can be sorted for users. The trick to picking the right one is to analyze the task the user is faced. In your case, the users are looking for potential purchases and want to narrow the search on some criteria. So the question becomes, what criteria do users use to select purchases and eliminate possibilities? ...

A user typically chooses to filter by brand because they want to see products from that brand, regardless of how many products there are. Listing the brands in alphabetical order is therefore sensible because it makes it easier to find the desired brand in the list, compared to presenting them in a random order. It is still useful to know how many products ...

All in all checkboxes are preferable but we shouldn't loose track of times when they are useful. Sometimes users - especially in expert scenarios simply need a DONE/NOT DONE indicator or APPROVE/NOT APPROVE indicator. I'm including a graphic below (I removed all incriminating and sensitive information:) Don't mind the "lock", the "envelope" and the red ...

I'm trying to sort out this exact issue right now. For me it's about what selecting the option "means". For instance, I'm currently developing some control interfaces; one of them selects which "devices" will be used on a certain schedule, with sub-controls for how long they'll be used and a few other things, another control interface selects on what ...
