Whether they have a right to do so is purely a political/corporate org/process question. Whether they should or not is entirely dependent on their abilities/expertise. In either case, the challenge is how do you handle it as the UX person? Some suggestions: always have business partner input formatted in the form of a user story if possible. The idea is ...

Well if you look at Product Owner's (PO's) role from the SCRUM perspective, it's the PO job to write stories that indicate what users wants to do and why, then prioritize the list of stories and provide additional requirements as needed. In terms of how the user's goal is accomplished, which includes the UI & technology, that's really not the PO's job. ...

There isn't really a need to change the look of the icon, as users experienced with "hamburger" menus know that most of them close the same way that they are opened: by pushing the hamburger button. However, if you really want to change the button icon to help improve the user experience by providing more information to the user, then why not change the ...

I will first leave this article, taken from WWDC 2014, which discusses Apple's attitude on using hamburger menus: http://blog.manbolo.com/2014/06/30/apple-on-hamburger-menus Here is another article that actually discusses user engagement in a real application that switched to a drawer (aka: hamburger menu) and then promptly switched back when they realized ...

My gut feeling is that if the whole page slides to the right, revealing the new menu, then the arrow facing left makes sense, because I want the page to slide back to the left. (That's also consistent with left arrow typically representing "Back"). If the menu covers up the content, then I want that button to tell the menu to hide itself again, in which ...

I like the idea of the column filter/chooser, but there could be even more mechanics involved for example. But above all, the user should always have control of what columns are hidden/shown prioritize (based on research/analytics) and hide less frequently used columns reveal columns based on persona / role / access level reveal columns to match to ...

There is "see" (conscious observation) and there is "feel" (subconscious signal) For example while 30 frames per seconds is the standard frame rate FPS for movies (33.33 ms between images) as this appears flicker free. However Android UI Project Butter set a target of 60 FPS (16.67 ms between images) because this provides "butter smooth" interactions. ...

Leave the value in there as an invalid state You should allow users to change the type and still keep what they wrote in value field. They might have clicked the wrong type, or want to copy what they had written. You need to communicate that the value is invalid though so I suggest you indicate this by making the value red: When the user leaves this ...

To a certain degree, the system can handle the problem itself - if an integer is changed to a string, the number can be converted into a string automatically (in the image above to the string "123"). In this case no user intervention is required. If a conversion is not possible, there should be a warning message. You say, the user "can change data types ...

Is there any possible UX justification for the same action having different behavior based on how it is triggered? Yes! The UX justification is context-awareness and adequacy of tasks. The use of mouse or keyboard is different in your actions you can perform (i.e. preciseness and speed). If you interact by speech interface you may describe your desired ...

Two possible reasons come to mind loosely related to examples above Default vs. Informed Selection With the mouse driven UI user can select from a presentation of bullet styles. This selection allows for informed choice. IIRC Word remembers last choice made by mouse, but the full set of choices is adjacent and default is highlighted. With a keyboard ...

Is it really the same action? Some actions will have the same result in many cases, even most, but may differ in some. Some actions will be differentiated by intermediate steps that are optional or impossible one way but mandatory in the other. Such similar actions should be kept separate, though. Example If I hit Cmd+N (Mac) or Ctrl+N (Win) in an editor, ...

In the two examples you mention, I'd say that the short answer is: no it's not justified. There's no clear purpose of the different behaviors, and there is nothing to hint to the user beforehand that the behavior will be different. When it comes to interaction we really don't want to surprise the users (except some cases where we want to pleasantly surprise ...

While this is not an absolute answer, here is what I found after some testing: I used a grid of 6x10 with each image at 180x180px. My data set had an estimated percentage of 1% of the images needing to be flagged. By setting all images to a default of approved and requiring interaction only on the images to be flagged, I was able to do 4 sets in a minute. ...

Great question. This won't be a definitive answer by any means, but here are a few key things I would keep in mind. Note that some of what I'm about to say has already been covered very well in the following two articles: How Should Your Mobile and Desktop Sites Differ? Your Content, Now Mobile Which information should be left on the map? Short answer: ...

As a phone is an "smart" device I would expect that there would be a better UX than mapping a static paper/digital map into phone format. I would approach design from a goal driven point of view e.g. A fire escape plan has key information if there is fire, but this information is just ancillary. The goal is to get out of building safely and as quickly as ...

Isn't this the perfect thing you can test for? Make some wireframes and test. Make some higher fidelity prototypes and test again. This is not something you have to guess about, nor does it make sense to ask others to guess for you. On a side note - if you are testing for nude/not nude then I think you can go a lot smaller than 240x240. I just went to ...

Proximity implies relation, make sure the elements look related. If not, the meaning could be confusing, appear amateurish or like a mistake. An illustration in a banner won't have the same purpose as a 14px icon in a menu. It seems the '317Jfez.png' icons are tough to read, due to low contrast and colors might not work well for anyone with colorblindness. ...

Not really, though it depends on the icon set. Your icon set can include both round and square icons, but the first set is 3/5 round and 2/5 standard icons, while the second set is 5/5 icons (with one that just happens to be a perfectly round icon). Therefore, your second set looks more like a proper set. However, there are no specific rules that state you ...
