A timeline by nature is more of a visual representation and a filtering tool rather than sorting, because it is much more difficult to manipulate the individual elements since it is probably on some type of slider or graph like control. A: I think a timeline will add some value as a filtering option if used correctly B: It should not be used for sorting ...

The "all" checkbox is the best option, but it should be displayed in such a way that the relationship between them is clear (this is not the case in your screenshot) Perhaps display it as a "root" node, with the other checkboxes indented under (treeview style): Another way to achieve the effect is having it in the header of a table like this:

The options to have a 'Select All' and 'Clear All' are not very useful unless you find out that most of the user using the filter would want to be selecting all of the company names very often (which as it seems to be very unlikely, by the way you mention the question). So a button to Reset would be ideal here. Having this button will: ~ Help users to ...

1 Add a 'All' checkbox at the top of the list (selected by default). I would advise against the All checkbox, as it's against the intended use of checkboxes. If the checkbox is checked, no other checkbox should be able to be checked, as you can't display both All and a filter. 2 Add a 'View all filter name' link at the top of the list (once the user ...

I would create the Any category as you did, and put a "Other" category as the last item of the category. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups For a user it feels weird selecting "Unknown" while selecting "Other" feels comfortable (this is a convention shared among many UIs). I know the data is unknown and that you ...

I'd go with the drilldown approach and only display filters that are applicable to the currently applied filters. If I understand correctly, the second approach would lead to a reset of the first option. E.g. if a user selects Contact first and then tries to apply the Company size filter would result in changing the content type to Company. This is not ...

You can see the solution on Gmail when you turn on vertical split view. When you click to some label and all you see all mails with this mail. Then you click on the top of mail body on cross near label name. Message on the left dissapeared but preview is still show, because any other mail was selected. Let's back to your application. I can see some clues ...

Option 2 will be best option Move the filters on top of the list. Show results below it. Keep the preview below the list. Hide the preview when, currently selected item is no longer in the list due to applied filter. Case Study : Lets consider root folder as books, and book1, book2, etc. are results, and the filter is price. User select book1, to get the ...

Perhaps placing 'View My Meetings' and 'Search New Meetings' (or some other variation to include the suggestions by @Pierre) in two distinct columns rather than a single column would help to differentiate them as well. A single column may suggest the two options work in tandem. Could the two titles appear as tabs above the meeting list?

I feel inclined to ask why you must make this distinction at all. If they want to see just their meetings with the Theme "Chocolate," why not allow that? I think forcing them to do one or the other will only serve to confuse them. If you can, I would remove the separation between the two and make it so you can do them all at once. They're all filtering ...

The "My meetings" caption at the top could be misleading because it can be seen as a title, falsely meaning that this sections allows to search in your meetings only. A suggestion could be to remove the checkbox and have : one button saying "show all my meetings" another one, next to the dropdown, saying "search new meetings by theme".

I've seen sites that employ a more "positive" spin. Instead of hiding filter criteria that won't return a result, they initially feature only the top 5 (or so) most popular filter criteria. The user always has to click "See all filters" to get the full expansion, but most users find what they want in the popular list. It's one way of driving your clients ...

You're showing check boxes in the primary filter list, does this mean your users can select multiple countries at the same time? This makes a big difference on how you display the secondary filters. If only one country can be selected then a drill down method could be employed. If multiple countries can be selected you will need a way for the user to ...

How about dynamic tabs? The tabs and data change depending on the accordion channel being addressed.

There are several reasons that if your facetted search is very open, more like a network of combined selections, that you should leave empty filters visible. Consistency You are better off disabling the filters so the interface retains consistency throughout the interaction. If there are always the same set of filters then the user can learn the interface ...

Greying option is much better. This shows that you have such filter option on your website, but it's working in current set of filters. It can say more about things you sort. For example: you search some notebook to buy. When you set price filter form 0$ to 1000$, you can see that Apple filter option is grey and you decide that: This online show has ...
