Allow users to update their age. Why? Users can make a mistake during initial age entry. Users may also provide a fake age when initially registering with your site if they (1) were asked for personal information without understanding why, (2) didn't realize precision mattered beyond choosing a date over some age threshold like 18, or (3) before they ...

Since toggle buttons are essentially just differently-styled checkboxes, it makes sense to use the same access key, which is normally Spacebar. (Here's an example of another toolkit's toggle button, which also uses Spacebar: Oracle JET.) Depending on your UI toolkit and the particular grouping of controls in your UI, the arrow keys may be used to move to ...

I think it there's no 100% method to determine was a user serious upon filling the form. A user may fill some fields seriously, but some fields - not seriously. Moreover, some fields are more important, some - less. For every field on your form define an importance level (1 - less important, 2 - more important, 3 - even more important, etc) for this field, ...

One thing you have to take into consideration is if parts of the form is auto-populated, i.e. when asking for basic information such as name, email etc. All these fields might be filled out instantly and at the same time. So, in order to measure the way you want, do not ask fot that kind of "standard information". And finally but perhaps most important of ...

Firefox introduced a tab grouping feature ("Panorama") some time ago, but removed it again. I think the idea was good, but the implementation had issues (bugs, bad performance). A contributor states in a blog post that another reason for the removal was usability, but without going into details. Panorama worked like this: You have a button in the UI (and ...

I think you should allow users to correct their age (date of birth, or whatever). Sometimes people create their accounts and they don't care about some stuff, or they don't want to give too much info about themselves (I'm one of those people :) ). And after they realise that it wasn't such a good idea, they would like to correct it to buy your goods. On the ...

I believe a suitable message can be: Javascript is turned OFF in your browser. For the optimal site experience, we highly recommend you switch Javascript ON. Know more here: Turn On Javascript for Chrome. This helps in the following manner: It suggests the user that the website highly depends on Javascript. If it's turned off, the user will know ...

I personally prefer the Second method since it ensures two things. Quality onboarding and diving right into what your app provides. If getting a user to register is your mission, the quality of onboarding needs to be on point. This leads to more creative solutions on how one can give the user an immersive and awesome experience and then at the Success/ ...

I think you should combine 2 measures: subjective and objective. You should then make analysis based on both. Here is a proposition: Subjective questionnaire - post task After the users fill in the forms, just ask them whether the answers they gave were correct. If the user says, "No, I just filled them to get rid of the task," ask him/her to specify which ...

This is both a legal issue and a UX issue: For the legal issue, all you have to do is to ask for the user's explicit consent that they are legal to view the material before you present it to them. This is usually implemented as a "Yes, I'm 18+ / No" button as seen on most adult material websites, although some others (e.g. Steam) choose to ask your birthday ...

If you choose list view then the image should be thumbnail size. Show the full image onhover of the thumbnail. If the primary goal is to show bigger image then it's better move towards card view or tile view (Pinterest ) Attached some mockup for reference

This is a good article/research by NN Group. It also helped me in one of the projects of mine in the e-commerce space. I personally feel the images should be large and the following article/research suggests the same. Also, design is really context specific so it really depends on your specific scenario. Hope this helps. Ecommerce UX: 3 Design Trends to ...

The problem with patterns is that it’s hard to stand out when you’re doing the same thing everyone else is doing. But you don’t want to deviate too far from functionality with something as important as navigation. You need to find that sweet spot right between familiarity and creativity. While thinking outside the box is usually a good idea, but there are ...

I don't think you are missing anything, the above site 'http://us.pg.com/ or http://www.wacom.com/' options are handled very well. My analysis on apple.com, country selection must be in new page because the country list is more than 140+. Its hard to handle such a big number selection on same page. My suggestion on providing the Country selection option ...

You should My friend had a problem, that he accidentally mis-set his age. Then, he couldn't change it, and because it was a kind-of age oriented service, and he stopped using it. I don't really remember, but it might be Steam or Origin. So you really should enable people to change them age, such as sex and name. There are transgender people out there. ...

This can be clearly solved with a small foot note: Note you are only seeing outs that you have been invited to. As to where you could put it. You put it where you expect users would want to see it - where it logically makes sense. If I randomly put it in a tab that is not related to "outs" it makes no sense. Your issue is dealing with "outs" nothing ...

Absolutely not Here's why: Generally, a persons name,brithdate,sex and other permanent individual criteria do not change. If your website is trying to restrict underage people to purchase items that they arent allowed to purchase by law, it would be irresponsible to let them change their age whenever they feel like it since this is pretty much one of the ...

First option is much more explanatory for the user. I would use some blank slate that describes the cause (why the table is empty, who & when erased it) and possible actions that can be undertaken (Undo, Import of new data). If your product allows to manually fill in the table, you need some empty rows at the beginning, with option to add more of them. ...

The first question is "Do you need either of those buttons?" "Back" is a universally-available browser control. There is no need to replicate existing browser functionality inside your interface -- at best it'll be redundant, at worst it's a source of confusion (is it going to act exactly like the browser 'back' button, or do something different? does it ...

Both options seem valid for me, it all depends on the business rules behind it. You cannot compare a content website like youtube to a brand website like wacom of pg. A brand website usually create this kind of pages because they have different localised website across the regions. The websites might look really different in terms of look and feel and ...

One thing that is missing and you should have is - information on total number of pages available. In your screen shot user does not know how many pages there are when the grid loads. Knowing that information is good but you still need validation. I suggest an alternate solution. I think this is simpler UI , no explicit go to buttons , it keeps controls ...

Did you consider using other ways to select a page number? One of the challenges of allowing a person to type into a field is they may not even type a number, so you will need to consider all sorts of other types of data entry field validation. If you use an alternate way for selecting the page, which doesn't involve typing, then the person cannot enter ...

You could try presenting the primary hotel and alternate as cards, with the primary accommodation presented as the top card. Show some details of the hotels on each card. Label the primary hotel card "Primary hotel" or "planned accommodations" or something like that, and make the primary hotel card background color brighter than the secondary one. Label the ...

Your second icon is definitely better. It clearly communicates the idea of getting directions/navigation, which is what you want. I'm not familiar with Apple Maps, but a car is neither the symbol for Google Maps nor the symbol representing directions/navigation within Google Maps. The only thing it is used for is selecting the transportation mode in that ...

Hierarchies. One of my favourite tools is my tiling window manager. This lets me manage a lot of windows though a very nice hierarchy. Here's a rough simplification: You have a number of workspaces (aka. virtual desktops). Each workspace has a set of panes. A pane may be a window, a tab strip of panes (like a browser), a horizontal or vertical "tile" of ...

According to your comment, you have basically two different areas: the neutral lobby and all the process rooms. Well, that hotel/office metaphor came naturally. So you could make a "shiny" lobby looking very different from the office rooms where the work happens. Since it sounds like one person could have to work in more than one office, the differences ...

Depends on the type of your content and how do you want users to focus on them. do you have a lot of content and you want users to scroll and scan them fast? or do you want them to focus on each image? Example: If it's a gallery of cloth images, the details are important so you should use larger images. Or consider Tinder app. the image is the main content ...

One very straight-forward way to do this is akin to how StackOverflow handles the review queue. Every so often, a random "experimental" question is asked - the correct answer for which is predetermined. If they get it correct, then you know they are serious and paying attention. If not, then perhaps you give them x number of tries before handling the non-...

Your definition of seriousness is actually quite hard to measure, since you are defining it as whether the user has read the question properly or understood it. It is almost impossible to know whether someone has read the question properly unless the only way you can complete the question correctly is by following the question exactly and interpreting it ...

As a PO I was responsible to launch the button on a German news website. The reason was: direct inflow shifted from the homepage to the article page. Mainly due to search engine and social media inflow. As a result a lot of users don't visit the homepage anymore and see which other article the website has. The (mobile) article page has to do the job and show ...
