There have been some nice developments to widgets since this question was asked. The old world Designers had to choose between placeholder only, label only, or label + placeholder. Each has disadvantages: Placeholder only is problematic because field meaning is obscured when it is filled in (see other answers). Label only is problematic because (1) the ...

Form fields can have both labels and placeholder text. These are two different things. All form fields should have labels. Not all fields need placeholder text. You can also position a label over the field so it looks like placeholder text, but is still an actual label. You can also hide the label and only show placeholder text, but that would be awkward ...

Since icon selection is not an appropriate question for StackExchange, I'll focus on the interaction design for quiet-mode (aka discreet mode). I assume this is not a mode that will be familiar to your users, so your UX goals might be something like: Ensure that the quiet mode icon is visible onscreen. Ensure that it is placed discreetly but easily ...

Is there a particular reason the user must be informed with a message being sent to the operator? I would suggest the minimalist approach.

To the extent that you can test the messages. See how people ...

An alternative approach is to treat the action as moving an item from one tab(where records are normally displayed) to another tab (cancelled items). So you can make the label 'move to ' instead of using restore or un-cancel since the action fits in with the way the items are manipulated. An very good example of this method is for email applications where ...

Your two suggestions work: Restore Activate Other options are Undelete Undo - However I'd probably go with Reactivate Restore works well for some uses, activate implies it's the first time, but reactivate seems to fit your needs better I'd echo the comments, though, that you need to match your words to what is actually happening, some possible ...

It seems to me that the term your looking for is "Restore". That being said (ready to be proven wrong) that "Restore" revokes a "Purge" which means that the record is still there, while "Delete" completely removes an item or record. On the other hand, the term "Cancel", stops a an ongoing task or a process. With the above in mind: your cancelled items ...
