Option A is better, but I also like the idea of being able to hover over a table cell and being able to see the 'edit' or 'delete' icons! Option A is better because you have these two buttons clustered through the law of proximity. The idea of placing them adjacently is better because they have a similar purpose (to alter) and thus reduce the users ...

This is a great question (because I have the same issue) and its super helpful to know that your audience are expert users. Our company is also looking for an answer to how to show help without cluttering our online app grids with help icons or distracting link looking headers. The question mark icons not only clutter but also distract a workflow. One study ...

Why do you think that adding a question mark icon/button displaying a tooltip on mouseover would look messy? That's exactly how Google Analytics does it and I think it's very straight forward. In fact there's a variant that looks fancier for YouTube analytics, but is less obvious to users. There you simply see the tooltip on mouseover on the whole table ...

I think of 2 possible solutions. First solution: The newly show entries are also selected. Since the user selected "SELECT ALL" it would be good to the program to... select all, since thats what the button calls. Second solution: Why not trying pages instead of "load more" like gmail form Google. Note: The "load more" and "select all" ...

should all of the selection get deselected No, this would make me angry as the user. I wouldn't trust the "load more" button any more. the newly shown entries are also selected No, my desire to "load more results" is orthogonal to me wanting to select results. Once again, as the user, I would no longer trust the "load more" button. the shown ones ...

What do you believe is the best option for the user clicks on LOAD MORE with SELECT ALL active "all of the selection get deselected" Never do this. Users have no reason to expect that loading more data would remove their previous selections, which they may have put some effort into. Unexpected destruction of user input is Not Good. "the newly shown ...

The current mockup is pagination, just poorly implemented. Load More/Infinite Scrolling are applied to data sets that are essentially infinite (such as Facebook's News Feed, or an e-commerce site's product results). When there are a finite number of results, "Load More" is functionally the same as "Next Page", but it lacks the "Previous Page" and "...

You have just discovered that Load All and Select All don't work well together and now you are stuck as to how to make them work together. Every option you are looking at is further degrading the user experience. Your design is compromised so I recommend you reconsider your design. I have designed Enterprise applications for nearly 20 years and I have yet ...

'Select All' should be stateless. It should not be implemented with a toggling behavior - i.e. on/off state. I cannot recall a single case where I saw it implemented this way. A good example case is Gmail, see how it works there. So, it should work on the items currently in the table and in this case you should also add an 'Deselect All' button.

Give them two buttons Select Displayed Select All

It relies highly on how your data presentation flows. Both solutions can be implemented while adhering to user expectations, provided the data flows in the direction the users would be familiar with. Most chat clients, for example, place the "newest data" at the bottom but many other discussion formats (e.g., discussion boards) place the newest posts at the ...

Maybe I'm getting sidetracked here... but I'm still not seeing a good reason for it to be in a table. Yes, it's tabular data of sorts, and there may be other technical limitations at work that I don't know about. But if the issue is that a table doesn't give you the freedom to lay things out in a nice way, why not ditch the table? You could still have ...

The best option is to show up the action bar dynamically, specifically for every row like Blogger does, instead statically tying actions to unrelated columns. The Blogger gives you a list of posts. It displays an action bar under every post row whenever you hover your mouse over the table. This saves space (well, I remarked that Blogger reserves the ...
