I've only been a PM for 2.5 years, but I can say that the flows given in various applications like Jira, Pivotal Tracker, Assembla, and others almost never fulfill the needs I have (for organizations I've joined with these systems in place). Here's what I consider most important in flow, in order: Research (just created, requires additional research and/or ...

It's a responsive-friendly way of communicating content length Let's assume the design problem is: communicate the length of an article concisely. First, consider some alternatives: Number of pages was the conventional way to do this in printed media, but for today's responsive website, page size can vary dramatically (mobile phone vs 30 inch desktop ...

I think its mostly option 2: It attempts to give a transparent/forthcoming experience to potential readers (people may be commuting to work and have 10 minutes left on their trip) Similar partterns include; displaying length of a video clip or the number of pages in a document. In these examples it makes perfect sense to display this information ...

maybe is out of scope, but scanning a table to detect patrons is not very user-friendly. If resources are available, i would go with an horizontal stacked chart: It offers a better perspective of the percentage of time on each status, and is more easy to scan for out-of-patterns days.

You should really see if you can compress down your feature set. Some companies seem to love having a huge feature matrix, but this can make things confusing (see "the paradox of choice"). Don't be set on the idea of checkboxes, either. That works well for a feature that is completely unavailable in lower tiers, but many things are offered at different ...

I think this is a design question where the overall content and intent of the design needs to be assessed and understood first. By content I am referring to the actual differences between the plans (or tiers) that you are going to display. There would be very little point in showing the information in a table if all three tiers offered very similar ...

JIRA uses the '3h 15m' style notation which works for me. Oh the other hand, I used a timesheet system in which time was entered in 15 minute blocks. I found having to enter times as a decimal values like 3.25 was non-intutive way of expressing a duration of 3h 15m. On the example given, couple of things are not clear: What is the granularity? Minutes?, ...

ISO 8601 Duration As mentioned in the answer by Crissov, the ISO 8601 standard defines a textual representation of a span of time in this format: PnYnMnDTnHnMnS, called Durations. In this format, the P marks the beginning. The T separates the days portion from the time (fractional day) portion, and is omitted for whole days. Examples: P1D = One whole ...

It seems to me that confusion occurs because there are 2 low-order places with both methods. You could take all the data to fixed 3 decimal places (or 1 decimal place) of an hour, using a decimal point, and rounded before display. Remember to keep the data accurate by doing the maths in integer minutes internally, so minor floating-point errors can't occur ...

One other solution could be to show the seconds as well. Since seconds will be changing quickly it will be clear that the times are continually changing. I don't recommend this solution but from the perspective of clarity, it works.

You can also show the minutes with a smaller font. On stopwatches, this is done for the seconds or milliseconds. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups
