I would agree with you. It is utterly confusing. I think mixing letters and numbers would work better. Because in your example II.1.2 could be misinterpreted as 1. frozen yogurts and 2. shaved ice and not chocolate. I have never seen such organizational hierarchy in place. Try: 1. Favorite flavor -a -b -c etc...

you need a different approach here. The user is probably only interested in exceptions (red, orange, blue?) so you should render the display differently. I would advocate having a simple traffic light screen with each colour having a number beside it green (14), orange (3), red (2), blue (1). On click user goes to listing of all the issues of that ...

One thing I like to always do, is looking at if from the other way around and simply go mobile-first, so it definitly makes sense to try and do this exercise. The limitation of mobile phones lets you focus on the really important parts. When going to a tablet or desktop you'll notice that adding stuff is much easier than removing stuff. For the tables, I'd ...

Personally, I think your main issue is to use a table, which complicates things and provides an affordance that collides with what you want to achieve. Think about this: I see your categories list, and see there are 10 per page. Great. Now, I expand your category... and now I see subcategories but some of the categories I was seeing disappeared! This is a ...

You are right that a good option would be to eliminate the overall parent/child relationship from the results table. Users don't 'search' for a category, they browse it; meaning a user would select Computer Hardware from some sort of category listing and then browse its children for further refinement. Both Amazon and PCPartpicker handle their content in ...

I think an easier way to look at the problem is by thinking about the rows as "denormalized" by including the category as part of the name or another column for each "child row". And when the user searches for something then include both the name and the category in the search. So if the search string matches a category then it would match all items ...

I dont think one big list is the way to go. Show all the parent categories as big tappable boxes. Let user drill down. It will be easier to find what they are looking for that way vs having to scroll through a big list. For search, show all entries that match. In each entry you can show a clickable hierarchy of its parents.

My recommendation, if possible (it is generally technically possible) is to have a copy to clipboard button that will do this for the user, so they need only paste it. If you're interested in the implementation details, more info is on this StackOverflow question Here is an example of what it often looks like. Bear in mind that although the example is ...

My plan would be to explain to the higher ups in corporate that there are countless reasons that HTML is better than PDF's. Explain that they are smaller files so they will save money in storage and bandwidth, they are more modular so they can be used on all devices without rewriting them saving time and money, and these usability reasons listed below: Of ...
