Another possiblity is to use small ascending and descending barcharts. For example
Sorry to say this, but I think you might have chosen the wrong icon. The 'eye' icon is usually used in circumstances where users are allowed a peek at the censored information. For example, you would see this while typing a password to unlock your computer. Other application is some developers use this icon to represent that this item is for view only and ...
I would question whether the user needs two badges. Allow me to make some assumptions as you have not provided details of how the information meets user needs. Does the user need to know there are escalated messages or how many there are? Which is more important? Presumably if there are ANY escalated messages, the user will go to the inbox sooner. I ...
One option is the unified inbox method. It shows a total count of alert items, and the breakdown and grouping is revealed on click or mouseover. The top bar here on a stackexchange site is a good example. I see a total of 2 in the red bubble, and when I click on it I see which sites and categories those two alerts fall into. Facebook has a slightly ...
Slack handles it nicely. Maybe it will help you. https://slack.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201675007-Dock-icon-notifications
While the questions seems to be a bit vague, I can think of using colours and numbers on an icon to show different statuses.
One of the things we found, when trying to conduct the same research, was that a lock, especially when referring to a login or paywall, can also be confusing, as it indidcates to many users that this feature is inaccessible to them.It's easier to use a key, to indicate the feature can be accessed: Also, it's good to let users know what's behind the ...
You want to identify items that have been "Favourited" by the user. There are design patterns for this. Here's one, in TweetDeck. The illustration shows two tweets; the first has not been "Favourited" and the second has: Obviously, hover won't work on an Android, so your icon would have to be constantly visible. More ideas In the comments you asked for ...
To save space what we have done on our website is create a download dropdown which opens up a list of different formats in which the file is available. In our case different languages but you could use different file formats. In terms of icons and distinguishing between upload and downloading I'd recommend two distinct icons, for example these. For ...
Apple is enforcing common standards around icon look & feel while trying to enforce consistent and clean UI for their devices. I agree with @Swapnil Borkar and others, it is redundant to have an icon hold an app name because the app name is already present right below the icon. More broad Question Is it a bad practice to include text into an icon? ...
whats a good way to differentiate between the file type A and B download button As a general principle of UX, you should show state in a clear and explicit way. So if the user could download for example a .doc and a .pdf it should be clear for them. For example: download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups should ...
You could also try a different design pattern instead of using a table. Assuming a person can have a limited number of "icons" you could display them as shown on desktop view. If a list of icons could get large - you could adapt the mobile experience where on "tap" a card flips to display more information.
I don't think it means more 'behind' it, it just means that there's more content available- on the next page/ as a modal window/ some other UI element. Looks to me like u have used it as a Pagination control, to show that there are more menu items on the next page, or to separate content- show that there's more content below the fold.
