When you download an application from google play it gives you a list of app permissions that are needed. When you continue with the download and installation of the app you essentially agree to let the app use these permissions. Apps typically have a config section where users will be able to control things such as the amount/type of push notifications ...

Yes, it's good to inform users ...particularly if there are mixed links on the page (some open in new tabs and some don't). One popular way to denote new-tab links inline is to use an icon as follows: If you're developing using CSS, this can be done in a way that fails gracefully for text-only or accessibility browsers. You can insert an :after sprite, ...

I think if the link will be redirecting to a different site, then it's helpful to convey this information to the user by means of an icon. The second icon in the question is apt for such cases. If the link will be redirecting to same site on the domain, then opening the link in new tab is not required. For plain text links, a small icon just next to the ...

If possible, present the user with a "Finish Later" option on the dialog, instead of "Cancel". If the install takes longer than they want right now, or they have something important they need to do right now that the install process is interfering with, they can choose that option and then you let them continue the next time the install process is initiated. ...

It very much depends on the type of your application the operation it is doing. Ideally user should always be in control, but there are situations when you will want to keep control when you are making critical changes. Firstly, you must inform user that a following operation might take X amount of time and that she may not be able to use the system. ...

I believe the correct action would be to explain to the user before going through with the irreversible action, that the action is irreversible. "Doing this is permanent / This action is un-doable / You can not roll back this change" -> OK /cancel Or something like that depending on what kind of users you have and what jargon they do or don't know. ...

If there is no safe way for the user to leave the process then you really should make them wait until it is complete. Leaving them with a faulty system is potentially more damaging to the software's reputation than making them wait for an extra 20 minutes for a correct and perfect instal. However, I assume that they've gone through some sort of process to ...

Your question is not which A or B is better, but: What end user does with provided data and how use it (broder context)? Data is a source for decisions, so you need to know if end user needs to: find a single row to spot an anomaly or analyse particular part (add filters) recognize a pattern or min/max value (add sorting) analyse whole set or local ...

Exporting data can be more time consuming Ultimately it depends on how your users feel about it but exporting data requires users to think more and can add friction to their work flow. If I could only choose one option or the other I would go with option 1, however, export to Excel sounds like a very useful function so consider the following example. Show ...

If you are filtering the data 'Date, year and month' wise then you don't need to do anything. Show the user data upfront and let user export it.

I'm of the mind that you've answered your own question, with a couple of caveats. You have two examples, so effectively you have your own A/B test. If you are already talking to end users and consumers of this data and have garnered their opinion, after you have explained why you believe the second example is better (quick scan overview, simple to download, ...

Not sure if this is a mobile web-app or native device app but I think my answer is applicable to either. My recommendation would be to show a dedicated notification screen either through a non-close-able modal window or a dedicated page. Upon being presented with this dedicated notification screen they should be given the option to go forward and backward ...

I would probably group the event messages based on module type and show a badge when collapsed. You may want to only show modules with events but this depends upon how many modules you have and if your users expect to tap the same module in the same location to expand it.

Something like this: Idea is X deletes, lock keeps the notification within the panel, options include swipe to delete etc... Panel scrolls to show more than 4 notifications.
