Relating to the UX process this is quite simple. Discovery is the period spent finding out the extent of the job at hand. This means studying the brief, running internal workshops with the client, holding stakeholder interviews, etc. Stuff that really adds to the definition of the the task. Research is trying to find out what product the users what at the ...

Simply said, there is a causal relation between these two terms. Research is the action, while discovery is the result. You discover something because you research it.

What about "platform" or "system"? Words like that capture the notion that there are several "sub" applications working in tandem to form something broader. "So, is it an app?" "Not so much an app, as a platform for ______. We're building apps for each mobile OS as well as a web app."

While there is no standard definition, this may help: The history Historically, a web site was a page on the world-wide-web that served content. Links where nearly the only way of interacting with each page, simply navigating you to another page. But soon the need for better interaction was clear, and Javascript became prevalent.

In my experience, there are often established naming conventions within a company that may not necessarily align to Nielsen's definition or other "standards" - so unless you are in a position to redefine how people talk about the various navigation structures, it's good to be flexible. Both "secondary" and "utility" are open to interpretation (does ...

While there isn't much research I could find upon this, Asking a question doesn't necessary act as a prompt. While I would definitely agree on using the question more if you were to speak with a Voice Assistant such as Google Now, SiRi or Cortana; in a Windows application with straightforward prompts such as Click here to Start, I think it's natural to go ...

I tried searching for a considerable amount of time but could not find the particular widget/element used in the Google Analytics Custom Report screenshot you have attached. This seems to be a custom widget itself consisting of a Web version of the Android widget: ExpandableListView but it does not contain the expansion for the sub-element. The sub-element ...

Don's just clarified in the second quote. The first article mentions other physical items such as manuals etc. However the information in a manual could also be delivered in a non physical form, such as a training course, or in a less structured way by a salesperson in a shop. Eg: if a sales person mentions say the double siding capability of a printer in ...

You're right in that user experience does include usability, usability is a big part of user experience. You have pretty much answered your own question but I will help to clarify. Usability is typically how easy and intuitive something is to use. This makes up a large part of how good UX is judged. Usability is just one part of user experience, as user ...

Collection would be a lot better than Set. Google+ uses the term which means many users are familiar with the it. However, I would suggest you call it a Folder which can be named by the user. Since they are documents; a folder can have multiple files.

Your question is very broad and lacks context. But here are some suggestions: Call it what your users see or can expect to see. If it’s a categorized list of documents, call it Categories, when it’s a list of most recently viewed documents call it Recently viewed, is it a search result call it Results etc. You shouldn't just guess what your users will ...
