I always take a step back and question when I hear "This company works with a lot of data". And I hear it a lot. The hard thing is to actually know what to ask out of this data and what to present. That could help you as well. Data Handling: Do they have so much info / data or are they multiplying things? (e.g. are they usiing two unique info, are they ...

There are many scenarios where a few advantages will deviate and converge as disadvantages. The infinite scrolling and lazy loading is technically a great combo and bonhomie idea. To continue further with stats and research findings, I 've linked a few articles Endless scrolling saves people from having to attend to the mechanics of pagination in browsing ...

I'm not sure if it's an exact answer to your question, but: yes, there exist some research on that users are more likely to discover more content, especially when the users are engaged in "time-killing" activities, according to NNGroup (who base their content on user research): Continuous scrolling is advantageous for content that streams constantly and ...

Your question is vague but as per my understanding, you are asking about when to rely on the browsers page loading icon & when to add our own in the site In most cases, browser's loading icon only appears till the time it hasn't loaded all the assets(js/css/etc) that are required by your page. And since those assets are not loaded, you might not be able ...

Name search should work as free text search. Otherwise you are creating nasty edge cases. If someone enters multiple names (first, last, middle), split into words, and search for all of them. Or let a third-party search engine take care of it. (eg Apache Lucene) Why? Because some people don't have middle names. Some have two or more. Some have two surnames, ...

I am assuming you are talking about one input field that takes a first name or a surname but you want it to also be able to take a full name. Adding in the option to search for a middle name slightly expands the options a user has for input (assuming middle name is optional) so this is definitely some improvement. There is still the much larger problem here ...

I notice you have some icons underneath your search box. Why not add a link/icon there when a user enters the keyword? Then you are using the space already available and you won't need to add new things, so it still looks minimal and simple.

I have seen many recent examples where only a search button is surfaced, which then expands to include a search box (as you have suggested). I don't think this is a bad thing, as suggested it depends on context however I might look at right aligning the button in the navigation and expanding the search on the same row instead of taking up more room. That ...

Nielsen Norman have some thoughts in an article about The Magnifying-Glass Icon in Search Design: They note that the icon on its own is harder to locate than a visible search field in the desktop environment: The magnifying glass alone makes it much harder to locate the search. When used without an open-entry text field, the icon takes up less ...

There are many things at play here and you might be wasting your time trying to solve an X/Y problem Design perspective If you are 100% certain that you need a search box in the navigation then from a design perspective I'd personally say that there is not enough contrast and only after a heavy "Make me think" session would I see that button. Just look at ...

The system should help the user but should not restrict the user. If the user indeed wants to search something, the user should be able to. Warning the user that this will result in losing information and afterwards giving the user the opportunity to copy his or her work (or maybe saving a concept version of it for later review?) should then be the best ...

I have implemented a similar search form and the approach is to drive the search by 'keywords' which will be the default field and optionally add more filters. If your search engine supports faceted search your search query would be q=keywords&fq1=filter1&fq2=filter2 etc., There is no 'Advanced' search here but simple search with options to filter or ...
