Taking everyone's suggestions into account, here's a quick mockup of what I think this could look like:

Here's how Slide for Reddit utilizes the button. If you need a Custom Filter, I would recommend you to have a separate activity pop up for the Filters one needs to select and they can then click Done to see the changes reflect on the actual activity. This will prevent the complexity of adding the custom filter into a drop-down.

This is a great question (because I have the same issue) and its super helpful to know that your audience are expert users. Our company is also looking for an answer to how to show help without cluttering our online app grids with help icons or distracting link looking headers. The question mark icons not only clutter but also distract a workflow. One study ...

Why do you think that adding a question mark icon/button displaying a tooltip on mouseover would look messy? That's exactly how Google Analytics does it and I think it's very straight forward. In fact there's a variant that looks fancier for YouTube analytics, but is less obvious to users. There you simply see the tooltip on mouseover on the whole table ...

I think of 2 possible solutions. First solution: The newly show entries are also selected. Since the user selected "SELECT ALL" it would be good to the program to... select all, since thats what the button calls. Second solution: Why not trying pages instead of "load more" like gmail form Google. Note: The "load more" and "select all" ...

should all of the selection get deselected No, this would make me angry as the user. I wouldn't trust the "load more" button any more. the newly shown entries are also selected No, my desire to "load more results" is orthogonal to me wanting to select results. Once again, as the user, I would no longer trust the "load more" button. the shown ones ...

What do you believe is the best option for the user clicks on LOAD MORE with SELECT ALL active "all of the selection get deselected" Never do this. Users have no reason to expect that loading more data would remove their previous selections, which they may have put some effort into. Unexpected destruction of user input is Not Good. "the newly shown ...

The current mockup is pagination, just poorly implemented. Load More/Infinite Scrolling are applied to data sets that are essentially infinite (such as Facebook's News Feed, or an e-commerce site's product results). When there are a finite number of results, "Load More" is functionally the same as "Next Page", but it lacks the "Previous Page" and "...

You have just discovered that Load All and Select All don't work well together and now you are stuck as to how to make them work together. Every option you are looking at is further degrading the user experience. Your design is compromised so I recommend you reconsider your design. I have designed Enterprise applications for nearly 20 years and I have yet ...

'Select All' should be stateless. It should not be implemented with a toggling behavior - i.e. on/off state. I cannot recall a single case where I saw it implemented this way. A good example case is Gmail, see how it works there. So, it should work on the items currently in the table and in this case you should also add an 'Deselect All' button.

Give them two buttons Select Displayed Select All

You could introduce some way to set a specific priority (an icon, double clicking the existing priority column, etc). If I need to move from 345 to 13, I double click the 345 and type 13, hit enter and that row zips up to position 13 (former 13->14, 14->15, etc). I would likely combine multiple solutions. Click and Type is good for setting a specific ...

It relies highly on how your data presentation flows. Both solutions can be implemented while adhering to user expectations, provided the data flows in the direction the users would be familiar with. Most chat clients, for example, place the "newest data" at the bottom but many other discussion formats (e.g., discussion boards) place the newest posts at the ...

Drag and drop is more convenient and can move multiple rows Many arrange 10-20k is a lot of manual

Maybe I'm getting sidetracked here... but I'm still not seeing a good reason for it to be in a table. Yes, it's tabular data of sorts, and there may be other technical limitations at work that I don't know about. But if the issue is that a table doesn't give you the freedom to lay things out in a nice way, why not ditch the table? You could still have ...

The best option is to show up the action bar dynamically, specifically for every row like Blogger does, instead statically tying actions to unrelated columns. The Blogger gives you a list of posts. It displays an action bar under every post row whenever you hover your mouse over the table. This saves space (well, I remarked that Blogger reserves the ...

There's a lot of articles to be found about empty states. Example I think all articles will concur with your second example and I agree. Designing for the empty state is not just about filling empty space. It's about telling the user about what to do. Showing an empty table might confuse users. Some might know they have to fill that table, but other might ...

If the function is hidden, the first thing comes up to my mind is to display a self-explanatory icon. Like this: About the rows, you seem to have the same problem: the function is hidden. Try to use the same design rules that are commonly used for Call to Action buttons (for example use visual affordances to look the row as it was something "tapable"). ...

I have built several UI screens like this in the past, with a table summarizing some info, but additional details and/or editable settings per row. My preferred approach is to keep the table read only, but allow the user to click/highlight a whole row at a time. Clicking this row can then populate a nearby "Details" section with all the detailed info and ...

Maybe a tabular data table is not best way to display this information? Perhaps consider using the card UI metaphor where you can dedicate more space to data and their labels: Note: depending on the data, some information does not need a label because the data describes their purpose.

I do NOT think the current table is a good solution. It makes me think of a spreadsheet, but then does not follow the conventions of a spreadsheet (with a totals column, etc.). This does not mean that a table is wrong, just that the current use is misleading. The symbols do not mean anything much to me; you have to ask your actual users. My solution is not ...

I believe that the number of columns in this table is the real decider. Without an example table this is all conjecture, I would recommend adding an image so people understand what you are asking. However, that being said, lets' examine your table interaction. Examination: Based on your own words, "EDIT" is the main control. If we are dealing with simple ...
