How about a single toggle between EDIT and DONE ? http://codepen.io/run-time/pen/yyJMKQ Hopefully you will be able to inform the user when changing their data soon. For future reference, I like how Google doesn't make the user explicitly commit changes and instead offers an easy way to go back...

When I've seen these in the past they have always been called Conditional Logic forms, e.g. http://www.gravityforms.com/features/conditional-logic/

To me, this is a hierarchy (from big to small): Overall/Conceptual UX (Structural issues, big features or parts of the system) — high level [Feature UX (Feature by feature definition)] — mid-level Element UX (Details, UI, copy etc) — low-level This can be translated in terms of Agile task boards like Jira: Overall/Conceptual UX — epic tasks, involving ...

This is an interesting question. I can think of lots of ways to answer it. Perhaps one way to think of is along the lines of dependencies. Anything that can be fixed in and of itself, such as label that needs to be rewritten could be considered to have no dependencies. A bigger UX issue where many elements, flows, pages and content may need to be ...

What did the user expect? All frustration comes from unmet expectations so when a user expects something to happen and it doesn't then frustration occurs. The level of frustration will be different depending on the person and the situation. Why did the user expect something different? If an "unclear label" (detailed stuff) is the reason a user expected ...

This can go in many ways. It's really hard to answer, particularly as there are mere two examples. But as an attempt, consider the following model. Generative cognition Basically, any stimuli we're exposed to goes through a process of correlation (or pattern-matching) with existing knowledge. If a match is found, then the input challenge is said to be ...

For stakeholder communications, rather than academic rigour I have found that I use (even deliberately mis-use) Information Architecture because 'Architecture' it clearly conveys high level organisation of conceptual items. I use User Stories for dynamic interactions that are still abstract and purely conceptual (e.g. can accomplish a User Story manually ...

In marketing lingo, it's called qualifying question or filter question. I doubt there's a proper technical term, it's more like two things mixed up: that it's a form and that it's reactive / dynamic / conditional. But if you need a catchy name, how about responsive form? In a web based solution, a form would be done in HTML (<form>, <input>, ...

You can apply the Conceptual, Semantic, Syntactic, Lexical model from the HCI literature. The user's overall grasp of system function resides in the conceptual and semantic levels. Details, like button text, fall on the syntactic level. Alternatively, you can think of the user interface as a language: semantics are the mental model, syntax is the logic that ...

I don't think there is a different name for the form itself. The form is still a form - except that maybe it borders on becoming a survey! When you start creating the form you shouldn't need to decide whether you need a straight form or an 'adaptive form' - you should be able to decide at any point - and add or remove the logic at any time. You don't need ...

I use the term 'conditional input' to indicate that there are elements within the form that is conditional to the input provided by the user. I think appending the term 'conditional' in front of a UI element suggests that they are triggered by a particular condition. Remember that it is not necessarily the entire form that changes, but just specific ...

in my current project we decided to avoid the term "Profile" and provide the sentence "MyApplication". The log-in and register buttons are in a different place and with different UI. Our goal is push the new user to register himself and make prominent the "my" section for the registered users.

There are differents meanings on this words. It deeply depends on your context. Commonly : - user is the person who use - profile is a view of the user (and/or user activity) who can sometimes have differents profiles - login is the precise field which allows to connect to the service - account is usually a representation of user in your system But... to ...

Thing is, there is no such thing as a solely opinion-driven development, or solely fact-driven development. Example. To start developing a feature, we are analysing data that we have (for example, weak conversion rate where one specific CTA is a bottleneck), and this is a fact-based process. Then we are building hypothesis on top of that data (will ...

Interesting problem to try solve in the general case. I fairly frequently have an accurate, but abstract collective term that is derived from strong analysis of the domain. However as most people actually in the domain do not do the abstract analysis, and thus they would not recognise and engage with the term. Equally because the analysis is not widely ...

I find the the listed audiences confusing Research for a university. Would that be research or university. A company that is not engineering? What would that be? Why public organization? My first thought is what is a private organization? It seems to me mixing the entity with activity. Research to me is an activity and public versus private it entity. ...

You could try "Clients" if it fits the context

You should run some experiments to determine which wording resonates best with your users. If there isn't an over arching word to satisfy them all then you'll have to consider breaking up your navigation. You could a/b test the following: audiences (control) stakeholders customers users It's also somewhat difficult to give further suggestions without ...

According to MSDN's reference on Window Features, The system reduces a minimized window to the size of its taskbar button and moves the minimized window to the taskbar. A restored window is a window that has been returned to its previous size and position, that is, the size it was before it was minimized or maximized. Expand / collapse is a control ...

A quick look at my own desktop and the software currently opened shows me that Windows and Google Chrome use Minimize. To answer the question as to why this is, I believe the following heuristic from Jakob Nielson will help: Match between system and the real world The system should speak the users' language, with words, phrases and concepts ...

One should simply not use the same term for items that are not the same. Users will not understand why they get different functionality between the two instances of the term. Filtering functionality is not uncommon in apps, so many users will understand the term. For those who don't, are tooltips possible for the control, or explanatory text in the UI?

Regarding the skeuomorphic versions of them used in mobile apps they seem to be referred to as spinners.

In aviation this is called a "trim tab" or a "trim wheel": In this context, it is used to adjust control surfaces (commonly the elevator), so that the "hands-off" pitch of the aircraft is maintained at the angle the pilot wants. Another, probably more universally familiar context, are classic hand-held transistor radios: On a hunch, I searched for ...
