I love this way: Transform the background of element to a light yellow and fade it to the default background color after some seconds.

There are two cases here, Users can select items and the cart then groups them to offer discounts / combos as applicable. There are certain predefined combos, with limited variation possible to be selected by the user. Users would be more interested in the items they want to eat and not precisely looking for combos or at times interested in the combos ...

Probably not Remember that the user's perspective is different from the app developer's perspective. What is the user looking for? I would guess that your users will want to look at the menu and order items they like. This is certainly what they would do at a restaurant. Any configuration would take place after they make the initial selection (eg "do ...

The solution to this question would ideally be affected depending on the engineering constraints, the size adn scope of the task, and the stage of the product, but it is common to err on the side of simplicity when coming up with a design solution. While fundamentally it isn't confusing for the user to configure options while in cart view, there are limits ...

I don't have an example, but if you really want to make it stand out, why not make it have a sticking out appearance- kind of like Google Cards card system. Just an idea I came up with.

It depends on the application. Here is a general list of techniques that can be used, mixed, or not applied at all to indicate the user that content is new: Apply bolded type Decrease or increase font size Adjust, increase, or decrease spacing between new content Append or prepend "new" label to new content Append or prepend message, with count of new ...

By adding a "new" label or badge (but I really want to avoid that) Well, you could add an "old" label or badge and apply it to all the -other- documents. Seriously, if you are going to display the newer documents first anyways, you can simply use a vertical divider with an "older documents" a label. Or a plain vertical divider without a label, I'm sure ...

"If you want sex just say it" Or in other words - convey information in the clearest, and most direct and concise way (rather than using nth degree semantics). Visual features will constitute nth degree semantics. You stated that new documents are always at the top of the list. If new documents are indeed of real interest to users, just give it to them: ...

I'm against of using "new", that does not add enough value to an updated item in a list that frequently has added items. Using timestamps like: "1h", "2d" is going be an standard, so people can recognize it, they have the same experience in their social networks app such as facebook, twitter, and gmail, you can also see this representation form in Android ...

There may be a problem with defining new to the user. Users typically comprehend a date/time for posting, and a freshness seal. You can define a new that is different than that, but you can't expect your users to see it the same way, and that can be a problem for product owners if that isn't what they want new to mean. If you over complicate that, you may ...

As it happens with Gmail interface, the 'newness' of unread emails is differentiated by a momentary 'new' tag that hides itself after a few seconds. That's how gmail tells today's unread emails apart from yesterday's unread emails. However, this doesn't apply to your case. The solution to my mind is a simple timestamp, visible in each row, for example '2 ...

I feel that a simple bold text with bright color (red/orange etc) could be sufficient to grab the attention.

I suggest you to show the 'added date' as additional attribute (column) to the documents and color the date of the new entries: Alternatively you can set the text of the date bold.

You could use a faded background animation (I think Wordpress uses it in the admin panel). It would work as follows: The user lands on the page the page The new items in the the list are highlighted by a background colour (and perhaps even the label new) Over a period of 3 seconds (or less) the highlight and the new label fade to the background colour of ...

I've come up with a different way of doing this: I'm basically showing an already filtered list of locations. Since there is already a default location which is selected, I'm displaying it at the top of my list which is filtered with the 2 first levels of hiearchy. The default location is "Front office - HR Office" which is within the Ground floor of ...

If the users know what they are looking for I would use a typeahead box. You can let both the technical name and the human readable name be searchable. Example of a typeahead input field: https://twitter.github.io/typeahead.js/

I guess you might want to have a look at a stack overflow answer about the same behavior. That gives you options of how to technically go about it. However if I am to focus on usability in this forum, then having both double and single click and handling it with a timer always introduces delay for single click. It is a serious pain for power users. I ...
