I disagree that this is a project management question. To me, this is more "defining the damn thing" or DTDT, as we say in the UX/IA world. We are forever trying to decide on labels, which can be exhausting but is important. For most of my 18 years in UX and IA work, I've called myself an information architect. That's partly because much of my work has ...

It really depends on how savvy your users are, but usually the simpler you can make your interface, the easier it is for users to navigate and use. A psychological principle known as Fitt's law shows how the Paradox of Choice affects user behaviour. For a typical sample, the more options you offer people, the less likely they are to actually make a ...

Your immediate issue is a branding/PR problem. Your customers come in two flavors, but the ones you're looking to communicate with are "cloud admin" users (whether these are concurrently "system admin" users is irrelevant at the moment). First things, you need two discrete schemas to associate accounts with. The cloud admin needs to internalize these ...

Four things need to happen for users to migrate to cloud user management User needs to see and understand the overall system User must believe in benefits in cloud user management (notably this includes (a) belief that it is secure, and that (b) working off line won't be impacted Painless and clear migration path "Nudge" to both remind, educate and ...

You can provide options for two kinds of users, non-power users and power users, those two kinds of users differ a lot in how they want to do something. Non-power users need only one simple way to do their tasks, and no more, and power users likes to have the more flexibility to do what they want. Take an example: newegg.com By default they use a guided ...

The standard approach is to show to most used/useful/efficient filters, and then add some "Other filters" / "Advance Search" to show more specific filter/search parameters.

Maybe not the best design but this is what I do in one app Let the user expand / collapse so they don't have to see the details of options they are not interested in

I would suggest making it an accordion style interface. Keep the panels but have them expand horizontally (while shrinking the width of the others others) slightly when a user hovers over. Instead of the "flip" effect. You can add easing to the animation to make the motion feel more fluid. This would result in more horizontal space within each panel. I do ...

Have you done any user interviews? I would try some variations on your design and get some feedback from people in a cafe or someplace. After reading your description, my suggestion would be to make "venues" it's own menu item that takes users straight to the venue management interface (only one click required) then put the cities, countries and timezones ...

Google Adwords' policies read: Clear, accessible disclosure before visitors submit personal information Our existing policy requires you to clearly describe how any personal information you solicit will be used. Soon, we’ll require that your description must also be easily accessible before site visitors submit their details. And they do this to ...

I don't have the research but in my own experience (also opinion) it gives the user a reference and easier recognition of the nav or tertiary content to main content. Even more important I believe on the side of UX; a visual hierarchy and focus to the main by giving a darker, to less dark nav and tertiary controls, to light main areas gives the user a ...

EDIT: I realized that my answer is much like Stephen Keable's. Don't know how I missed his! Will you only have users from US and UK? I'm from Sweden and my address neither contain a province nor a state. If this is a webform you could do a geo IP detection to detect the country and then use this information to automatically change the form. If for some ...

Rather than using the Checkbox to decide, could you perhaps initially show just a country drop down. Which after selecting shows the other fields and appropriate labels for the selected country. Try this fiddle for an example You could even pre select the country option based on IP address (with ability to override). I would also recommend using drop ...

dThe first rule of navigation is that when you hide information, its usability declines precipitously. This rule becomes exaggerated when we are talking about navigation clicks (mobile) as opposed to hovers (desktop). So the TL;DR version is - no it's not a very good idea in most cases. Let's start easy - where is it okay to have deep nesting, even in ...
