It's already been done on a vast scale. Since the success metric is rebooted the machine over a 100 times before being unplugged and summoning IT. So the 100 reboots would be the conversions and the calling of IT I nominate Windows update from Microsoft because every Tuesday is causes at least one reboot, last time was 5 reboots the patches often ...

The Google home page is simple and uncluttered. But, once you search for something - you can filter: Are we missing something - or are you?

Well, you have the answer in your question - you lined up the answers like a bullet list. Do the same, but with radio buttons. They are often the best option when there are few options, but one (and only one) have to be selected.

I think what we can first look at here is any other options besides your popup. A couple that spring to mine quickly are: 1 - A dismissible warning above the cart - offering full cart scope - "Promotional items are no longer discounted when Urgent Delivery is selected". If this isn't prominent enough a dismissible (or, I guess, timed, but personally I don't ...

From the electronics perspective, it seems to me if they wanted to implement the "Instant Power On", it was easy to do. I think the reason for the delay is usability, considering this two aspects: It makes it harder to unintentionally power it on, specially when it is on a pocket Making the act of "Power on" symmetric to the "Power off" act, which makes ...

There are a number of things you can do to make the situation clearer. Can you disable the folders from being selected in the first place? If you can then I think this is the simplest solution. You could change the text of the button to make it clear that only files will be downloaded (e.g. button text: Download Files). Once the folder download feature is ...

There seems to be a heated debate about business goal of the self-destruct button in question. So, I will try to contribute to this side of the argument. I am currently working on an MDM (**M**obile **D**evice **M**anagement) project and we have a requirement that enables the administrator to create a device-wipe rule based on a status or event. (i.e device ...

I'd suggest you go with the empty item. For two reasons: To be consistent with your criteria options. Why should a user have to leave the date fields empty to get the complete range but have to select an option when it comes to types You usually refine your search by applying filters. Selecting "All" does not refine your search result whereas selecting a ...

I don't know the full context of your situation, but I think you have more of a wording issue. As you state, there are 4 states. So using yes/no doesn't make sense at all. Sounds like your for initial states should be set via radio buttons as: ( ) Has a discrete graphics card ( ) Has a integrated graphics card ( ) Does not have a graphics card ( ) ...

In addition to the suggestions offered by TJH, I would suggest another approach: blink the "discount" cell background in a different color when the value changes because of some (intuitively unrelated) other action taken by the user, such as selecting express delivery, to draw their attention to it in a non-intrusive way. You could also add a message bar ...

When designing any UI, consider that each element that you place on screen should have a clear purpose and function. That said, displaying 2 different search fields will result into confused users expecting those fields to perform different actions. It looks that your main CTA is search, so you your challenge seems very similar to the one Airbnb faces. ...

(consider this more user feedback than UX professional feedback) The and and or filters are too complicated. Use and only. The user is smart enough to know that city and mountain and sea view will have few to no results. This simplifies the design (Look at View and Internet, my paint skills are limited): It works out very well with Internet since you can ...

Two search boxes in the home page will confuse users; they will wonder if there are two types of search. Also, by adding a second search you will make the design more complex. You should have as few elements as possible in your design. If you want to emphasize the search in the home page you can use white space just like Google does.

It sounds like your customer is, like everyone else I know in finance, very much hooked on Excel. It might seem horribly cluttered to you, but this person is likely used to working with giant workbooks containing lots of sheets (accessed by tabs). They rarely want to learn a new workflow, so don't break your head trying to force other solutions on them. ...

I suggest that you use modeless feedback, as defined by Alan Cooper in his book About Face 2.0 : Feedback is modeless whenever information for the user is built into the main interface and doesn't stop the normal flow of system activities and interaction. There are already some suggestions for modeless feedback e.g. @HEM, but I will give you my ...

I imagine that the criminal community is far ahead of us all on this topic. What user scenario(s) could prompt the inclusion of self destruct button? Being British, I imagine that many of the issues that came up (rightly or wrongly) in the recent phone hacking trial / News Of The World enquiry http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24894403 might be addresed ...

Google does have filters. On my mobile version, there's a list of links at the top. The right-most says "More" and the bottom link in the drop-down list is "Search tools." That provides filtering by date, and whether you've visited the page, etc. (This is Google mobile, on Android.) Here's what I see on my Android: ...and then, click on "Search ...

What user scenario(s) could prompt the inclusion of self destruct button? And finally, and most importantly, what would it do? A self destruct button sounds like a perfect candidate for once and for all leaving a social network. It's so easy to sign-up but leaving can be a real pain (ever tried leaving facebook?). How would you as a UX ...

The self destruct button should be available in both software and hardware formats. I will focus on the software side for this answer, perhaps someone else more proficient in nuclear reactor meltdowns can fill in the hardware side. The self destruct button need to balance the functionality with the urgent need for speed of deletion - something that deletes ...

I agree with DesignerAnalyst. Two search boxes will simply confuse the user and as such could be considered redundant as they result in the same goal. Google themselves have the search in the centre of the page, but once you begin to type, the search moves to the top left.

Below are some brain reaction times, I found from the book of Jeff Johnson, Designing with the Mind in Mind : Shortest time a visual stimulus can be shown and still affect us (perhaps unconsciously) : 5 ms Maximum interval for visual fusion of successive images : 50 ms Time lag between a visual event and our full perception of it : 100 ms ...

What about providing a vertical slider to the right of you list that can snap to one of the 4 distinct states?

There's a reason minimalist design has taken over the Internet... it's easier. The fewer available actions available to the user, the less confusion. Duplication of any action is completely unnecessary as long as the available actions are obvious and intuitive. You, out of anyone should know what the user is trying to achieve, it is your goal to present ...

What user scenario(s) could prompt the inclusion of self destruct button? An orbiting research facility, housing an extra-terrestrial contagion capable of wiping out every living species on the planet loses power. Airlocks on containment cells are losing pressure, all staff aboard are infected. As routine maintenance slows to a halt, the station begins ...

If self destruction is a key requirement, I wouldn't leave it in the hands of the user. Instead, I'd go the route ala "this message will self destruct..."

It all depends, I think, on what 'platform' you're going to be using this self-destruct button. Is it a digital destruction interface or is it necessary to have a personal self-destruct button on your person at all times? If you're going digital, how much does this button need to affect? To be a successful self-destruct button, it has to do what it promises ...
