Building on tillinberlin answer above - make time savings an optional feature. User will participate in the choice to track, and so will be more inclined to click pause to preserve integrity of results. Will also have some ownership if results are negative, less inclination to blame app. Users who choose not to track- give a summarized result or no results ...

I have the following suggestions : At the beginning give estimated total time as a range. Keep the range wide. At the end, display time saved per step. If for a specific step, the actual time is much more than the estimated, display a message like “You had a break or an interruption. Time not included in total.” Don’t ask any feedback from users during or ...

My personal impression is I would feel betrayed, if there wasn't any feed back at all whenever I used too much time – be it my fault, answering a phone call or having a coffe break – or just because this one time it just took longer, to complete the task. So I would recommend to always give feedback. However – the way you describe the app I would expect the ...

I would definitely make sure to notify the existing users to such an extend that they understand the additions/changes and are able to grasp the improvement. Even though you are creating a better experience for them, your changes could really backfire if your existing users don't 'get it'. If they don't understand what is happening at first and are unable ...

You answered your own question! :) I think you should allow users to sign up without JavaScript. Users want an easy experience, they don't want to follow steps like how to enable JavaScript - they just want to sign up, do want they need to do and they're done. It's simply too much work to enable JavaScript. So I think the solution you gave in your answer ...

If you have two notifications of the same type, you should summarize them into one. Optionally, you can provide an expanded view that provides individual details. If you are only uploading one at a time you can consider the following ...

Would it be weird or user-unfriendly to not serve users a message after canceling a date? (it redirects to the overview page) Yes. Don't do that. Ever. The answer by Benjamin S above elaborates on the reasons why tjat should never be done and points to excellent resources. I'm aiming for a somewhat minimal design. And preferably avoid static "date ...

You need to provide some form of feedback to the user that the event date was cancelled. According to Lund "Every action should have a reaction." Jacob Nielson's first of 10 principles of user interface design state "The system should always keep users informed about what is going on, through appropriate feedback within reasonable time." Alan Cooper calls ...

You really need to show a message, or else people won't know what happened. It could be as easy as an inlined message download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups You could also visually treat it so it's not even with a bounding box, but just a text. As long as they know that it was deleted (with a confirmation), you should ...

Very interesting question. I never cam across a study around sound in home appliances. I wonder how much of this is linked to idea of "affordance" or universality. I would suggest looking at Google Scholar. Finally I can easily see a future perhaps not so far away from now where technology will become more performing, reducing the noise of home appliances. ...

There are some vaguely related ISO standards on warning sounds: Unfortunately they cost money to look at so I can't tell you how relevant they are.
