I would disable but add a count-down timer or some kind of indication that they will be able to close the ad at some point. YouTube has done this well with their "skip ad" countdown: This gives positive feedback that acknowledges that you have taken away control from the user (which they do not like) but that you'll give it back really soon. I would ...

A stacked group with the face of the last submitter is what I would consider. With the ability to expand the stack and see all involved.

An incredibly hard question to answer. Not because of the difficulty per se, but because of the contradictory goals that the system is trying to achieve: Trying to cause annoyance by forcing users to continue with something they may not like AND trying to optimize bounce rate, pages per visit and returning user percentages. Forcing users to see ads ...

Following the great work of Anders Taxboe who has categorized different types of UI elements in a classification which is easy to understand and easy to follow. At the very highest level he uses the following labels. It may look odd in the beginning, but going through each category, it makes the UI Design World quite understandable: Reference: UI ...

Whether your product should be a one-page solution or a more traditional multi-page solution is entirely dependent on a whole lot of factors. There's no way to give this question a blanket answer. A one-page app could be designed with great UX, or terrible UX. Whether it's one page or not really has no direct bearing on the quality of the UX. Broadly ...

Also I'd recommend to add navigation to such huge forms -- the operator should have the possibility to access necessary group as fast as possible. We use in our hospital medical system this solution for patient registry entry: download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups Left menu allows to quickly scroll to necessary group ...

For your use case with 10+ athletes by 9 events, the full table might not fit on mobile screens. Generally you want to avoid scrolling left-right but scrolling up/down is OK. Swiping left right or using tabs for each event is a good option if all of your data doesn't fit from left to right beside the athlete names. You could use tabs or swipe gestures to ...

I'm a UX Architect for a fortune 500 company and I have a very big portfolio to manage, so i'd firstly say this is a UX question not a Project Management question as it's a fair question to seek in a forum like this. My approach thus far. Create a UX Repository of Excellence. You running around chasing down team(s) to see what they are up to isn't going ...

I'm currently working through a set of very similar problems so I've been giving this topic a lot of thought. 1) I see 0 benefit in displaying a list of "Read" notifications when notifying the user of new activity/events is the intent here. I'd focus solely on "Unread" notifications and have a control that can let the user access older "Read" notifications ...

Lately I have been thinking about two primary categories when creating an interface; 'interaction approach' and 'content style'. Subcategories of each help to define a UX strategy and interface. Interaction approach I find it helpful to first classify the interaction approach of an interface as 'exploratory' or 'direct'. I don't mean to imply that an ...

I think the key thing you might not be remembering here is you can created fixed menus that hover above the content. Make a fixed bar on the left with admin tools that only renders for admins. You can include the code in the navigation/header view and just not have it render for regular users. If they need more space, have the toolbar expand out when you ...

I have implemented something like this before (formulas a little more complicated). If you are using table and field names in your formulas, the most important thing is to avoid the user having to type them in. Indeed they shouldn't be aware of the underlying data storage at all. My solution was to provide draggable elements that wrapped the table / field ...

I agree with your second proposed solution (radio button being the technically the right input to use here). I also can see how those would look confusing together, especially because as I understand it, an item has to be checked in order for it to next be selected as a leader, and the two together do not represent this dependency well on top of looking ...

(+) Having your icon on the user's home screen Well, they can easily add your web site as an icon to their home screen as well. I think the actual 'benefit' here is that you have an icon in the app store. The catch is that if you have an 'app' in the app store, the consumer expects an actual app...not just a web site wrapper. Also note that Apple ...

All that is happening really is you are redirecting them to google, they are logging in, and google / twitter / whoever is passing a token back for you to use as authentication. Maybe tell them that, in a more user friendly way. This is my 5 minute stab at it:

What are the items? Consider very carefully if both views actually adds value and helps the user gain overview, choose an action or progress further in some manner. In my experience, there is seldom more than one view type providing the optimal value needed for the user to get to where ever she's going. I don't know of a best practice in this case. A button ...

If you are short of space on mobile, you can definitely show a single icon which reflects the current state of data. Here the key would be the icon design. The icon should be self explanatory. Otherwise the desired way is to show two icon where one is shown in the active state.

If a (possibly sliding) image-row is not an option and you need to show all users you could consider a single morphing thumbnail showing all of them. (Better without causing people epileptic seizures)

You can also create smaller thumbnails depending on the number of members. For instance if there are 2 people, you can generate two smaller thumbnails. Like this, you can generate a maximum of 4 thumbnails. If the number of people is greater than 4, you can show 3 image thumbnails and the 4th one can contain a number e.g +1, +2 to represent the additional ...

What Stevy said. 1 column forms are easier to scan. Luke W has some great thoughts on this http://static.lukew.com/webforms_lukew.pdf but I have another question: you say the form fields number 350? This is ridiculous. As a UX you should be flagging this and recommending solutions that reduce this number substantially. It sounds like it is a legacy system, ...

I'm not sure how people feel about multi-column forms. Certainly multi-column forms look nicer but single column forms are just easier to fill and easier means quicker. Where is possible try to use unified text fields to gather the information that normally takes multiple fields. This reduces the number of text fields and dropdown lists you have and will ...
