Based on the comment you made to Diego, your question is a lot different than what it looks at first sight. If you require a lot of interaction, then don't offer a notification each time, and don't save each action immediately. Instead, create sessions where the user can do any amount of actions (you can autosave every X amount of minutes). In these ...

It is best to give some sort of feedback. The Netflix DVD Queue doesn't pop anything up, but it gives clear visual feedback that something has happened and that you can undo it. Gmail provides an actual popup, but it's completely ignorable. The problem with modal popup notifications is that stopping what you're doing in order to close notifications - ...

Yes it is the best practice to show feedback messages on such actions... it means your system is having conversation with the user and the user is aware of what is happening, but don't annoy with too many alerts. With a feedback cycle, you can tell the user what is going on in your application. However, keep in mind that the applications’s feedback ...

It can be all. Suppose when tuesday starts, app must send a SMS saying "You have a conference meeting today, present before 15 minutes." When conference about to start send him a Push Notification saying, "Conference will start in 15 minutes, Open XYZ App or click here to open." OR when Person 1 schedule a meeting, Person 2 should allow to Download a ...

I think the second and third question has already been answered quite well, so I just want to focus a little bit more on the first one. There are actually a number of strategies that have already been suggested, but I'll summarize and see if it helps you identify the one(s) that is most applicable. Tracking reputation: it can be similar to the points ...

If fast response time is paramount, you won't have time for a triage step to filter out bad reports. Accountability/auditability is your only other choice to limit false alarms. Patrons who cry "wolf" will eventually need consequences, but maybe they can be identified other ways (cameras, door access records, computer logon records, etc.) The good news ...

Is “missed the gym yesterday you fat fuck” a good UX experience? When the device has this kind of attitude towards the user I would make sure to put in the terms of service that you are not liable for any mobile devices getting broken :) Isn’t your claim similar to the text found on cigarettes, like “smoking kills”? We have yet to see any desired effects ...

This is an extremely large question, but I'll do my best. How can I discourage false reports? It sounds like you're talking about this in terms of a university environment. I assume people already have assigned email addresses from this organization, so it seems like you could use their existing account to enable a one-time registration of their device ...

Accountability is a good way of ensuring proper use - If a user knows that a report will come with their name and ID and that records of reports are kept for analysis, they will be less likely to use the tool for fun. Another way to deal with the problem of false or unreasonable reports is to build some sort of triage into the tool - make it a tool to solve ...

Not that this idea is your solution, but I have use this for different reasons. You can override the alert. Create a new alert function and see what you can do. It is synchronous, and because of that you can require attention before the next action, and when you override, you cand create more options.

We often have this on our websites, what we mainly do is make sure the header and footer of all pages are the same design. This is to make sure it looks as if the pages have been redesigned, even though only the top and bottom of the pages have changed. As long as the color-theme and logo is the same though, users will feel like they are still on in the ...

redirecting - popup like notification with a spinner before proceeding to cart page


1

You can put one line below the header in such a way that it will attract the user to read it. The reason is if user read it then they will come to know that the site which they visit regularly is the same. Another approach is to show small notification window at the bottom right or left which shows message for redesign page which last for few seconds and ...

A notification like this should be passive, meaning it becomes visible as a secondary or tertiary UI element but doesn't force user interaction. You definitely don't want to make your users to close a notification every 3.5 minutes while they're on your site. Think Outlook's tray notifications. Alternatively, you could ditch the notification concept all ...

Firstly, colour should never be the only way of distinguishing different messages. One of my pet hates is coming across system status indicators that simply show red or green! You haven't done that - You have three different ways for users to distinguish the different messages: The 'urgent' flag sits to the right of the list item, the validation failure ...

If messages are going to be logged to any sort of file, having a consistent form can make parsing easier. Further, if the number of operations performed is apt to be of interest, one may simultaneously solve single/plural issues and make it easier for the user (or a parsing utility) to find that number of one writes the notification as:Operation successful. ...

There isn't a consistent pattern, but it is clear that the best experience is to be explicit in your confirmation. However if that is not technically feasible, then use non-specific copy that is equally applicable to single or plural actions By saying message(s) it makes the user think about whether that was a singular or plural. Example In a scenario of ...

How about pushing the development team to use some logic? Based on the selected records - let them switch the string of feedback message. For instance, if the user selects only one record to delete, the system should understand it and show a message as 'The message has been deleted'. If the user selects multiple records to delete, the system should show ...

The trends in the industry is to be clear about the action the user took. If you want to be generic, rewrite it to say something like, "successfully deleted." And don't make the user have to click OK, display if for a few seconds and perhaps with an undo button to allow the user to recover from an erroneous mistake.

Common requirements: I have identified common requirements/patterns for the "dialog" concepts I came across. OK and Cancel buttons Close icon in top-right corner (same action as "cancel"?) Hitting "escape" closes the prompt (same action as "cancel"?) User can move popup around using drag n drop Confirmation dialog must be enforced by ticking a checkbox ...
