An interesting point is that these days, it is really trivial to scroll a 2000 items list. In ancient times, say, 4 years ago, when dealing with exactly the issue you raise, I would create some sort of system - a search, nested list, alphabetical buttons or whatever. But today, it's totally trivial to scroll over a couple thousand items. And note that it ...

Since you are dealing with expert users, I would consider a multiple-selection autocompleting input field: An alternative that uses a bit more space, but much less than hundreds of checkboxes, in order to show the options would be a double list box. This is more user friendly in the sense that you do not have to be an expert in order to look through the ...

If you are trying to minimise multiple selections (e.g. not have a user select 25+ check boxes) but want to retain the option to it might be worth grouping available tasks. From looking through there seem to be similar functions throughout so you can group them to the subject e.g.: Agents.Brand_Management Favicons: Upload Show Delete Apply Logo: ...

To give a really helpful answer, I think we need to know a little more. Are the items that filter is going to be applied to limited to matching one of the icons, or can one item show up in more than one? How is the content organized, and how do users filter in the first place? Your case could be close to product categories, as seen on Amazon: A thing is in ...

Smashing Magazine describes a nice solution based on the results of usability tests. It handles typos, various spelling sequences, synonyms and prioritized options. The technically correct term for this would be something like an “auto-complete text field with loose partial matching, synonyms and weighted results.” Here's the demo.

1: If we're talking a global system then that's a no. As you say it could be a real pain to zoom right in to Singapore, lots of clicks. Also don't forget that though it may seem logical to me and you that the USA is that big bit, second one down, on the western land mass, some people REALLY suck at geography. A lot would depend on exactly what sort of ...

Since it is a tablet device, can't you automatically detect the location? Either from the user profile, or from the location service of the device? You could bring that up as a default selection an a longer list.

Definitely a dropdown list with the autocomplete (you press C, list scrolls to Czech Republic). One list for a region, the other one below that reacts to first one, for the country. If there is no user need on the region list, ditch it altogether. Country list is essential here. You don't want a rich UI for something as simple and tedious as a country ...

How about just using a Combo Box? download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups By a user being required to just choose what country they are from, it removes the unnecessary step of a user needing to first select the region (or you can just infer the region based on the country selected if needed). Allowing a user to start ...

If you want to use one of these methods then use the second one as this method has less critical disadvantages. Add a search bar at the top of the screen to filter records. That way user won't have to scroll all the way down.

My recommendation, if possible (it is generally technically possible) is to have a copy to clipboard button that will do this for the user, so they need only paste it. If you're interested in the implementation details, more info is on this StackOverflow question Here is an example of what it often looks like. Bear in mind that although the example is ...

Does the user need that much control over the thumbnail? If not, the autoplay should suffice to clear what the video is about and help them select it (I believe that's the goal in the autoplay, right?). As for clicking to select, The purpose of the modal and the message on it are about selecting the video, right? So a border around the video on mouseover ...
