Hi! So you have the slider which will increase/decrease only at fixed values. Now, suppose I want to set my duration for Break as 2 minutes. I set the slider at 2 and I click on the button "Duration for the Break is". As I know that the label for this action is always going to be in "minutes", it can act as a fixed label for me. I wouldn't need to ...

I like Alexey's idea, because the number and thing measured form a pair. So instead of showing controls for "50" and "repetitions" separately, the user instead edits "50 repetitions". My only concern is that links have a particular meaning and their use here is not standard. For example, I've been in situations where I had to wonder what the link would do, ...

I think that there are two directions that you may follow to make this setting less cluttered: It seems like it's a good idea to treat settings like a meaningful phrases, but using desktop controls makes it unreadable. You may try to replace them by links (every user nowadays is familiar with links so it will not confuse). Doing this you will make your ...

If I have understood it properly, you have provided a list of options and you want your users to select either of the options (only one selection at a time) before moving to the next section. Also when any of the option is selected there is some content displayed (as tree) under it. For the making the individual selection you have used the approach of radio ...

First of all I would propose looking at the sequence of your users. Does he need to read all three (or more) of the panels to make a decision? If so, wouldn't it be more practical for it to be expanded all the time? I can imagine having to expand every item and reading through it carefully can be a pain. If it isn't then I would say look at the flow of the ...

Humans are very bad at judging difficulty and complexity, and almost as bad at communicating difficulty in any standard unit. How much easier is a task with a difficulty of 5 than one with a difficulty of 6? Is it really the same amount of difference as a task that has a difficulty of 1? The solutions to this problem vary, but they tend to do one of two ...

Some thoughts and questions for you. Must the user do this sequentially? If so, sounds like a bit of a wizard. You could do away with the radio buttons altogether, and disable the sections below the first, progressively enabling them. What role does the radio button really play? Typically, radio buttons are in pairs, representing an either/or status. ...

It depends on the importance of the complexity indicator. How useful is it for the user? Looking at your graph i see that you have a lot of variation in your complexity rating: 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 3. One way i see it is as a green to red bar: You can incorporate more colors in it (like orange) or do it as a scale (like Alexei suggested). This would allow ...

I'd recommend: to have limited number of complexity levels. Because having a lot of those create cognitive barrier. As complexity is not absolute category, people will interpret it subjectively and think a lot before making decision. It's better to use 3 or 4 levels to name levels in appropriate way. Labels allow to refer to levels in clear way and to ...

You should just use some descriptive words like "Simple," "Intermediate," and "Complex." A number of stars is just that: A number. And if you use a number, than you have to explain the unit of measurement. Why do that when natural language offers words specifically meant for this situation? For the best implementation, I would give each word a tooltip that ...

Start by Categorizing My high school did the same thing but on one big long paper when it was time for choosing electives. Having the courses listed by category made it easier to go through. You can create a series of filters in a tabular list that allows users to see and drill down to more detail if needed. Coursera.org has a pretty great system for ...

I think the two steps is definitely confusing. Making it a list of search terms that you can add via dialog would simplify it for me: Most users will understand that these terms are and'ed together. Handling combinations of and/or can greatly increase the complexity: "brunette man or redhead/blonde female." Then you really have to weigh the benefits of ...

I think using words like "and" and "or" will be best to ensure your users understand what they are doing. In this example the user would set the first attribute and then they can choose "And" or "Or" for the second attribute to determine if it is a union or an intersection. This can be done for both included and excluded items. You could select "and/or" ...

Why not hide the description in a div that slides down or some other such method if you click the title of the club or a button that says "view description". Then you can have all the descriptions and the checkboxes on the same page without it getting too cluttered.

Why not allow them to select the clubs in the first page itself. I would suggest a simple layout like this download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups Once the user ticks off a club,give him a visual indicator which informs him of which all clubs he has joined as shown below download bmml source Facebook allows you ...
