User completes one booking first and then move ons to next booking (NOT ADVISABLE, To much efforts and clicks involved at User's end) Here is a 2 step scenario: Step 1: User should be able to select one or multiple Dates. Something like marking multiple Dates on a calendar. Step 2: Once Dates are selected, User can select the timeslots against the ...

Important: Do not stop the video unless it has completed its playing duration. Even if user completes the necessary view time to claim points. This abrupt stop is annoying if I am watching a video of say, 10 minutes, and after the 7th minute. it stop showing me claimed points. I still have 3 minutes of video left. I would suggest to have a visual ...

Like a classic e-commerce site, user should have both options: Complete the booking - this is like going to shopping cart approval and then proceed to the payment. Continue booking - this is like Continue shopping. There are several approaches to how to present the user the two options. Some sites are prompting for the shopping cart approval step with ...

Speaking from the user perspective, I think it makes the most sense to complete the first booking before starting to provide all the info needed for the second booking - unless I wanted to set up a "regular" appointment, like every 5 weeks please set up an appointment with me with Barber Joe Smith for 11:30am on Saturday. In that case an option to repeat ...

Not having a VAT number is acceptable. But effort should be taken. Before a VAT number is left blank, evidence about what efforts where taken should be recorded. The employee who did the effort, a description of the steps, and any information recieved. You would start with a "do you have the VAT number". If they say they don't, it walks them through the ...

What is the ideal scenario for test and save buttons? Another way of approaching this is instead of having two separate buttons for 'test' and 'save', is to incorporate the test connection into the save functionality. This way it becomes more of a validation process (the system prevents you from failing) rather than putting the burden on the user to ensure ...

To answer one part of your question: Should I allow connection to be saved without testing? A good design would probably be to automatically test when the user presses save (if it hasn't been tested already). A related question is: should you allow the source to be saved even if the test fails? I probably would allow this (with a confirmation dialog ...

Well, in my point of view, if the user visits the homepage, he should be shown the Login window with a signup CTS just below or on the side. Obviously if the user hasn't signed up for your website, he won't try logging in at the first place and will instead click on the Signup button. The best example is facebook, the site with maximum number of users.

Short answer The optimal user experience would be to log them into their account. Long answer However, one could put an argument forth that if the user realises they just tried logging in via the wrong screen, they would instead expect to be presented with an error message as per your first point. The reason for this is that most sites use this approach ...

From a user experience perspective, I would say that you need to fix the triggers first before you solve any other problem, because you might be trying to solve the wrong problem. Clear triggers mean users have clear expectations about what will happen. So I guess you have some options: Have a separate Login link and Register link Have a simple Login ...

There are a lot of "how to force the user to" answers - show the users some respect instead :) Make sure it's no possible way to automate the process, auto search for the VAT, add auto completion, user public VAT search sources. Whatever the system can do to help the user in the process. If no VAT is found, apologize and ask for help politely, add a phone ...

The simple fact that "everybody" put the avatar in top-right means it's a well stablished convention. Don't worry about it. As your design has a side navigation, you can trace a parallel to Google's Material Design: it has a side navigation with a prominent user avatar in top left: https://www.google.com/design/spec/layout/structure.html#structure-side-nav

Is there a behavioral or psychological benefit to placing the identity control in the top-right? Reading Gravity - Top-right is a 'strong fallow' area Various models that describe reading gravity (for languages that read left-to-right) make the top-right a 'strong fallow' area. So it's not a primary location in the reading/scanning process, but it gets ...

The best user experience is the user just uses the app without performing any other additional unrelated task like creating an account, logging in or choosing to save locally. So perhaps allow the user to use the app in demo mode from the get go, and store anything they create on your server (there are still ways you can create temporary accounts that ...

This problem reminds me of some forms I have experienced before, particularly some internal training websites at my company. To ensure you read the training information on a given page, you may be required to Navigate through several slides. Only once you reach the end of the slideshow, can you continue on to the next page to test you on the information ...

I have had to something like this before as well. The most workable option that I have seen is an "administrative fee" if the purchase should have a VAT number but does not. This assumes a purchase of course. Usually VAT Tax is enough to make consumers enter the number. However this won't work as your end user is not a customer and isn't forking over ...

I think you are very close to identifying the solution. The Requester and the Approver have different goals, so can use different tools to meet those goals. For example, the Requester can use a wizard to capture information (because Wizards are very good at guiding users though complex or critical things), and the Approver works from a list and is ...

As per my comments I thought I would post a mockup to explain. If you maintain your current workflow then I would use the following: A prominent "Save"/"Save Photo" button first (Directs to in app purchase content) A secondary level "Save with watermark" button The in app purchase content should also explain somewhere that they can still save photos ...

I think Abhishek Sharma is on the right track. However, I also think the following isn't clear: When I look at the above, it's now clear to me that I've selected Create a live photo, but it's not clear to me what the Video | Photo option is for? I guess it wouldn't take long to figure out, especially if you're using it, but I do feel it's missing ...

See the color: At very first look to this image, I can't able to see "Create A live Photo" as it is in dark color over the dark BG. Read more about Colors You have logo in pink color you can use grey color for inactive links. if you want to remove this small triangle you can remove it, it will look good without this also. Hope you understood the ...

I think the cause of the confusion is your colour choice : the use of black and white is so mixed such that it is unclear to the user "including myself" which one is the highlight colour and which is the background colour. So, my advice : change highlight color, it should be unique and obvious .

Why don't they just say Sugars < 1g ? Because not all intended users/readers are fluent enough in math shorthand Plus and minus symbols? Sure. Greater and less than symbols... not so much. Of course, lots of people understand these easily, but it's a massive assumption to think that 'everyone' gets them. I was once taking part in a card game ...

I had to design a similar form a few years back. The way I handled it was by providing a link to further info and having a checklist appear at the bottom if the information wasn't provided. The user was unable to submit the form if the field was empty and the checklist not completed. So, to use your example: the form has a compulsory VAT field next to it ...

I think one problem is that "No VAT number" is too vauge, IMO it makes more sense to split it into seperate cases. The company is not in the EU. The company is in the EU but has confirmed they are not VAT registered. The company is in the EU and is known to be VAT registered but the VAT number is unknown. The company's VAT status is unknown. I would ...

It is a managerial issue, but it can be enforced with software. Require a supervisory override to continue with no VAT number. The supervisory override should escalate to someone who cares if the VAT number is present and who has the authority to tell the person escalating to stop shirking, if necessary.

Using two different words for the export (e.g., export, save) is a little confusing. It's better to be consistent; make both export or both save. If you're going to specify tag free, separate that from the action. Here are some formatting alternatives: EXPORT | TAG FREE or EXPORT (TAG FREE) EXPORT | WITH TAG or EXPORT (WITH TAG) Watermarks are fairly ...

A possibility is to publish stats about how well each employee is doing in finding the information. This could be displayed either as a percentage or an absolute number. You can try getting a bit of competitive atmosphere where the employees are constantly trying to do better than their co-workers. Don't take it too far though, you do not want to encourage ...

Give them a UI that starts the process of searching If the user submits a form with no VAT number hit them with a modal dialog, that gives them option the perform a search. When the user inputs a company name, append the the words "VAT Number" and have the default browser run a google search. This method: Forces the user to think about VAT numbers ...

I agree that your current route is not very useful for anyone and especially not the end user. The key here is to make sure you offer the user as much help to achieve the task as possible. Why not offer some kind of walk through asking the user to confirm that they have tried each route before moving on. Some people may not have realised the different ...

Don't do this. This is very user-unfriendly. It is much better to politely incentive the user, by writing something on the line of "Please double check that you have a VAT. This field isn't required, but if you enter it it would speed up the processing of your request. Thank you."

It is used According to the FDA's guidelines it is perfectly acceptable to shorten "less than" to the symbol "<". (i) The name of each nutrient, as specified in paragraph (c) of this section, shall be given in a column and followed immediately by the quantitative amount by weight for that nutrient appended with a “g” for grams or a “mg” for ...

You may want to consider an alternative solution entirely. Allow your users to edit > save seamlessly. Keep the UX enjoyable and decision free i.e. don't risk confusing or annoying the user when it comes to saving a photo every time they do so. What if a user doesn't understand what a watermark is for example? Instead, just allow them to save away ...

I agree with comment by @jazZRo to your previous question that it is better to include price to first button. Thus you can avoid user frustration by clearly showing the options. However, the decision is yours. Possible wordings for the buttons: Save pure image ($00.00) Save pure ($00.00) Save clean image ($00.00) Save clean ($00.00) Save tagged image ...

The principle of tinder comes from card sorting techniques. As you stated in your question, in first iteration, user will have a big "yes list". In next iterations, passively, you can divide that bigger yes list into smaller parts. In such workflow, the priority items can be found and new counter-offers can be generated for convincing user. In the end, ...

Why are you using 'Export' word in red button and 'Save' in text Button? I see a good approch. But Text Button looks very different, I thought it will have different funtionality. Both buttons belong to same group. So design keeping consistency. See above, it looks like both are clickable and are buttons.

Considering the purpose of this screen is to require "users to identify whether they are a teacher or parent," one approach would be to spell it out in plain english, simply say: To continue, please select what best describes you: [ I am a Parent ] [ I am a Teacher ] This approach is a bit wordy, but makes it very clear what is expected of the ...

IMHO you do not need the label 'please pick from the list below' . You already have a title "User Selection" and the two options right down below, so the action to be taken by the user is clear enough, and you eliminate the clutter . And also I suggest you change the title a little bit : the user here is in fact selecting the " user mode" , and "user ...

If someone gives you their email address for registration purposes, that is not consent to be spammed with an unwanted mailing list.

I prefer a more controlled approach to sorting or re-ordering. I would prefer to have different sort options, like "sort by date", "sort by name", sort by priority". The "fling" gesture looks to me like discarding the item. If you could animate the movement of the item that has been moved, and show the user where it has ended up, then it might be helpful. ...

Without seeing the context within which your user selection choice appears, any answer you get will require a bit of guesswork on our behalf. However, at first glance, I have the following to offer: It seems relatively clear what you want the user to do, assuming this is located somewhere the user is drawn to. If it's lost on a busy page, then the user ...

yes i think he has a point , as the ranking looks like as if its the user title . i think you can make small container for the ranking like badge ..colored according to his level , showing only the ranking number without "points" . may be something like this

I strongly caution against this plan. While role-based navigation might be appropriate in certain, very specific scenarios, it usually isn't. It has been demonstrated that role-based information architecture increases cognitive load and user anxiety (which is the opposite of a good user experience). In most cases, you want to do research to develop ...

This case is quite interesting and has also been seen in a lot of places. Lets take the example of the Google's Android Notification in the Lollipop and above OS. It will show the popup and the rest keeps on working as it is. To take important note here is that the Pop Up will not make the rest of the screen dim, unlike your case where the screen is getting ...

I think the slideshow should stop ideally. I agree with @richardstelmach. It will be distracting when something partially hidden moves and something on the foreground demands my attention. Apart from that there is another aspect. As I open a pop up, I have a mental image of how the screen behind that pop up is. When I close my pop up and I see an ...

I would say that the slideshow should stop. The popup becomes the central point of focus you want the user to concentrate on. / the user has to do something with the popup to continue the use of the site / continue their journey. If the slideshow is continuing in the background, it's distracting. Making it harder for the user to complete their goal. It ...

When you decide about the behaviour of your slideshow you need to think to your users. It's true that there is only one focus of attention so a slideshow that run under your login make noise but on the other side we have the habituation to the stimulus with which user can ignore the noise and make more attention on One object. So for example I prefer to ...

There are always competing principles at work when deciding which are important to apply and when in UX. We want to make sure we reduce the amount of effort required to obtain the benefit (whatever the end goal is gained by logging in) but also balance other concerns, like security. Consider meeting in the middle of convenience and security; save the email ...

I would rather like to go with somewhat restrictive approach. If you have login popup which disappears on outside click & user accidentally clicks outside, then user will have to click on login button again to see login popup again which I think is a bad UX as we are making user to repeat same steps unnecessarily. Instead of that, if you have a login ...

X strategy is not a good idea because when user see a popup with X then he or she close it immediately without reading content. Most of users automatically close the popup with X button so click outside would be a better solution but the best solution should be not using of popups according to Users have commented that unsolicited windows or graphics ...

it doesn't matter at all FWIW, you could have scrollbars a cookie monster or a black hole and it will be the same. The whole idea of a popup is to interrupt the user flow for some reason. Structurally speaking once you launch a popup, it's at another dimensional plane of interaction, so you should be only be able to interact with the popup since it's at a ...
