download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups Here is another approach that is common enough for you to consider implementing as well. Start with a empty table that has an input box to edit the column heading (perhaps with some text to indicate that you can enter and edit the content. Once you have entered in a value and ...

Having implemented this feature a few times, I have found the cleanest solution to be "exec" instead of "sudo". Steps: Power user logs in. Power user accesses "login as" feature. Power user types Target user username. Power user clicks submit button. Page boots, sees Target user in session, execute Auth::login(target). App now behaves as though Target ...

For administrator or testing mode, the testers usually want to be able to see the website as closely as possible to the user's point of view. One way to do this is to just highlight the top nave bar a different color (like red or green) so that the tester knows the browser is in impersonation mode, but all everything else is the same so they are seeing ...

Type of impersonation Interesting question! how exactly this might look will depend on the aim of impersonation and the relationship between the impersonator and impersonated. Few questions might be helpful in devising the right approach: For example, is the impersonation feature required for social networking product or for an enterprise solution? Is it ...

I would do this through the combination of a pretty obvious UI state change and a change in wording. For example, if your header is normally white when you're logged in as you, change it to bright orange to indicate a difference in status. Similarly, you could also just stick a bar over the top of the UI like this. As for the wording, maybe something like ...

I think you should not limit yourself to specific tools. Generally speaking you should pick a tool that allows you to : Work quickly Work Efficiently Produce results with the right level of details Allows you to share and print documents easily. For me Mindjet Mind-manager seemed to tick few of these boxes but was not an option at my workplace so I had ...

I typically use PowerPoint (or Google Slides) to build both, mostly because it's easy to use and as Zaxbit said, it's faster to use what you know. However, these are typically small enough sites that I can fit all of the pages on a standard slide. I would imagine dedicated software could better handle larger sites and help you to organize versus PowerPoint ...

Process layouts describe real-world or abstract processes without accounting for the system supporting them. For example, you may define that each task in your development process goes through 3 main stages: Design Implementation QA The term user in user flows denotes how the user progresses through the supporting system. The user flow for the process ...

Allow direct editing of the columns headings. Allow direct editing as much as possible. Make the initial table creation as quick and easy as possible but understand this initial creation will likely be modified many times. So to create a table requires 2 numbers, number of rows and number of columns. Then show the table and let the user work on a "live" ...

I haven't come across a UX term for this, but a roughly taxonomic approach, from general to specific, is: A general term for these strategies, used in game theory and behavioral economics is cooperation. You are describing a cooperative situation where mutual benefit arises from cooperation, but the user has to give up something (privacy) with a known or ...

In biological systems the kind of 'I help you if you help me' is called symbiotic behaviour. However in this context this is more to do with the "psychology of co-operation" - which is covered by 'game theory' (how two 'players co-operate / don't co-operate). Again this probably is now covered by the current topic of Behavioural Economics. This article ...

If there are two businesses named "ACME" (one from USA, one from Germany), why would they want to advertise their URL as /acme and not as /us/acme and /de/acme? The US business would know that users coming from Germany looking for their business would end up at the unrelated DE business, which would be some form of "advertisement" they most likely don’t ...

This is more of an implementation question but I'll try and answer the UX portion as best I can. It really doesn't matter what the URL looks like as long as it's consistent. I like that you are thinking about this problem as clean URLs make nicer looking bookmarks and are easier for developers to understand though most users won't even notice the URL. As ...

I'm coming from a web developer perspective, so I am a bit biased, but here's my two cents: Local domains are great, but hard to remember, if you're going to be using different countries, I would go with website.com/ca/mcdonalds. This actually makes it easier for other websites to integrate as well, as it is a simple RESTful interface. The /ca/ designates a ...

A URL must uniquely identify a page. This is simply a basic principle, and you should discard any option that breaks it. Note the requirement you mention in your question: I need the businesses to be able to post the URLs of their pages... It won't be acceptable to businesses if the only available URL goes to a page where the user selects from ...

Do you even need drop-down for only two choices? Instead of browse button you can have label "Templates" and then two buttons: Program From computer

Depends on the next steps: The left one let's me change my decision again and again since it's always on top of what we are doint The right one is part of a (sort of) wizard with selected steps (in a way) I select where to find my template and go on the next step, and going back to change my decision will take a lot more effort

Are these users logged into this site? If so, are there user settings that could control what options they have access to? This sounds like a personalization issue. From your last statement, this might not be the case. More details are needed.

Please also include a version tag/identifier in the URL so that later, in the future the next time someone comes up with a bright idea of let's do things a new way, the (old) URL does not have to break. Your users will hate that. User: www.example.com/apiv1/users/johndoe Business: www.example.com/apiv1/businesses/acmecorporation You might want to use ...

What if the user "owned" the business: User: dummy.com/johndoe Business: dummy.com/johndoe/acmecorporation This way the user can see the relation in the URL.

I would agree with @10MAY that subdomains are not appropriate here. Your only solution without subdomains is this one: User: example.com/johndoe Business: example.com/uk/acmecorporation *uk is the country of the business But why is the country all of a sudden that important (it wasn't for the other examples)? If you want to go with the standard ...

I would say it totally depends on what you are mainly targeting in the website. If the main purpose is more of social connection then the best way to go about would be to have User: dummy.com/johndoe Business: dummy.com/business/silversolutions On the other hand if the website mainly focuses on getting business information to the people rather than the ...

Since you want to indicate function in your URL:s, the best way would be to actually type out that function in the URL. My suggestion: User: dummy.com/user/johndoe Business: dummy.com/business/acmecorporation Edit: adding an excellent point made by 10MAY in another answer in this thread, regarding why you shouldn't use sub-domains: Also, ...

Sitemaps are a simple visualization of the pages that the website will consist of. I use sitemaps when developing a website for a client so we can agree on the pages and their content. It's as simple as a square with a word and maybe a small description. Like 'frontpage' with the description 'small introduction'. It's a simple visualization for the client ...
