As a user, I would often find it unnerving if the UI behaved in unexpected ways. Instead of having the new alarms pushed on top, you could consider one of the following: Show the items beyond the current scroll (I'm assuming the modal window has a scroll?) out of the view of the user; he can then scroll up to see the new alarms. The top border could light ...

Have you tried combining the collapsable accordion along with a detail view? It gives a nice fluid feeling, especially when the expand/collapse animations are done properly:

You could use a scrolllist for the FAQ questions instead of a accordion. If you press e.g. on "Question 3" the detail view for question 3 is moving smoothly from right to left. If you press on "< Back" the FAQ list is moving from left to right. In addition you can offer buttons to switch to next or previous question in the detail views. download ...

Accordion can be a good solution, if it would be combined with some kind of categories. You can just split all your questions to 4-6 categories for example. You can also use any other layout instead of accordeon, but categorizing is a must in any case here.

This seems more like a development question than it is UX. The limitations of datatable you described are specific to that library, not UX. The "thought you had" is exactly what datatable offers on the demo on their website. If it has the limitation you described, you are probably looking for a different library, rather than trying to solve a UX problem. ...

What is the primary area of focus for users on your site? I'm going to take a guess and say Activities? If so, you might want to steal a concept from blogs dealing with categories & tags for linking information. Here's a typical example on the "our activities" page: If you click into an activity. You probably don't need to show list of all resources ...

I will also give the same solution Select 2: http://ivaynberg.github.io/select2/ here you are also able to view the selected options...and scrolling would be required in both areas ('selected options' and 'options to select').. for hundreds or thousands of options, how can we display them without scrolling...

Search only works if they know the name, which may be part of the problem for the user. They may not remember the exact name and only think of a synonym for the name instead (e.g. they type "dashboard" when the name is "summary"). For large sets it is often viable to list the most frequently used in a short list and then have Search as well as a pop-out for ...

One of the primary reasons these filters are used is because of their simplicity of implementation. Have a look at this discussion on the SitePoint forums. It goes through implementing one of these filters; one of the best suggestions there is to use a small SQL snippet. With some basic client-side processing, this can easily be turned into a filter. Of ...

Your question: What are the cases where one would use this type of filter and how effective is it? Is something you answered previously: [When you can] assume the user knows what the first letter of the item is. Context-wise, I think your two examples are likely the most applicable uses: dictionaries and address books. iOS7's address book, for ...

I'm not sure of what you are working in but I was always fond of a select box replacement written in jquery called Select 2. It has the appearance of a select box but when you click on it it gives a search box underneath. There are also examples for selecting multiple options if it is needed. Here's a quick mockup: download bmml source – ...

you could use an accordion, with all the option categories collapsed by default. clicking on one expands it. while clicking it again collapses it, like a toggle. clicking on another one expands that and collapses anything else thats currently open. after making a selection, the selection will be a part of the title in the accordion.

You can use a popout window, this will also free some space on the report inspector : download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups

I'm very late to the party. But I'd like to offer my own solution. That is: using a popup window (aka overlay, modal) to display the checkboxes and let the user select multiple values. The popup window is opened when a user clicks on an edit link on the main form. When he's done selecting the values, he can click a DONE button, which has a click event, a ...

My opinon is that the new button should be at the end of the list. This will also force your users to look through the list before adding, and maybe this is something you want them to do e.g. avoid duplicate links. Consider also adding a button that will take you at the end of the list.

You need to think about the user flow here. What's being added? Is it common to add something, then, immediately after that you interact with it? Or is this just for the sake of adding new elements? Also, design wise, think about scalability. What happens when that list gets really REALLY long? Does the user have to scroll all the way to the bottom to add ...

Why not both? Have it consistently placed at the beginning of the list (top left). Add new items to the beginning of the list (slide the others along/down). This also keeps the newest items more visible (at the beginning of the list), and older items less visible (towards the end) - which may be preferable, depending on what your use case is.

Is this really a choice between just two options? I think there are more solutions than presented. Maybe it's better not to include the functionality for editing the list in the list itself. This way there is a clear distinction between content and functionality. One option would be to place to the button in the upper right corner. This is, for example, how ...

Here's the actual issue with this: If you don't put it at the top left, it'll always be in a different position, and thus be less easy to locate for a user. This is without even taking into account pagination. What are you going to do if there are 10 pages? Stick it on the last page? Stick it on every page?

If the latest item will appear on the top, then add the "add button" on the top left. If the latest item will appear at the bottom, then I would recommend adding the "add button" at the bottom. You guys might also want to consider adding a wide add button, that spans across 3 columns, at the top. That way it'll be quickly visible to the user.

It sounds like you've answer your own question: How to indicate specific sections of a page can be swiped addresses a broader question. The suggestions on that page are excellent but they would result in a lot of noise if repeated for many items on a list. They are also more appropriate when swiping part of a page results in a larger change in ...

I suggest using multiple activities. You could check the form after every activity and make elements bigger which makes your UX better. This way there could be +/- 5 inputs in one activity. Once done the user could click on a nice big next button. (Since they have never used android before this makes it easier.) The activity then checks the data and if ...

For the best UX you should probably use something like: "next event" Then another row with "future events" And the last row with "archive" where you can put all past events. This makes things clear to the user and makes it easy to navigate through.

Outlook does this reasonably well by right clicking on a column header and selecting group-by. This doesn't work so well on the Web especially with touch interfaces - though touch and hold is becoming more common. A tree icon by each column heading would work but would be a bit fiddly especially on small screens. A mobile style menu icon (small square with ...
