Neither. Settings are different from questions. This may seem obvious, but it drives a difference in UX design. Yes and No may be reasonable answers to a question: Are you a muggle? Yes / No However, in your case you are really asking the user to make a setting. For settings, don't make the user think too much: Describe what the radio button does ...

As you mentioned if the option B doesn't include the question I would go with A) because the question is simply enough to admit a Yes/No answer, plus the explanation next to the option is the expected and not something that really needs to be cleared before the user accept, the question already states the final consequence. Also you could use an alternative ...

well, roundness of buttons comes from the Contour Bias concept: Contour Bias is a well-studied theory that shows that humans prefer rounded objects and choices over angled ones. The more angled, the more that human brains reacted with activity in the brain associated with fear and flight. in theory, your 50% rounded button should work better, and ...

Welcome to the site, 67172! There's one conventional pattern showing relations involving tables, which is usually called master-detail. This is restricted to a single list of items and details for the selected item (which might be a table again). Obviously, this is too simple for your case. You'll need to be creative yourself. My first question is about ...

Are these actual windows? Can you arrange them, stack them as you please and size them as you please? Dock them? You're not actually building windows if you're only building a big modal that covers up your entire screen and forces the user to hit "x". At that point the question is - "Is putting a giant modal that covers up all navigation and context a good ...

You could convert the radio select into a check box and provide a tool tip with additional information about the option (i.e. public = visible on homepage)

Is the application specifically for taxi companies? Further to that is the app for drivers receiving jobs? If so, using location based jobs can make this process simpler. The operator only sees jobs relevant to them. As an aside, the UI contains elements not used by the operator. If they are not needed, remove them. Otherwise, could I get more info on the ...

As a user I'd expect to be asked to login before the input dialog is shown. If I'm shown the input dialog I expect the login to be unnecessary, and if otherwise I'd consider it as a violation of the principle of least astonishment.

Here are a couple things I would try... 1. In-line editing with some safeguards Making changes to an item directly in the list is nice since it provides context, however, consider making the list read-only until the user specifically clicks an "Edit" button. This will help highlight that the user is making the desired change to the right row and allow ...

You could look into other kinds of components, like accordions and carousels to show more content without resorting to modals. Accordions work well for expanding list entries to show more detail. You might also consider a toggle switch to change between a detail view and a summary view. As John S mentions, be cautious of using modals. They are best reserved ...

The questions being asked are yes/no questions. The appropriate UI control to use in a yes/no aka Boolean configuration setting or question would be a checkbox. [x] List this property publicly. [x] Show this property on my home page. Both (a) and (b) choices are potentially confusing to a user and should not be framed using a 'radio' UI control at all. ...

Yes, I agree. Not being able to open a link in a new tab/window is a bad UX practice. In addition, not using URLs prevents users from bookmarking the page. It also prevents users from being able to navigate by adjusting the URL (for example, going back to a root path). Now with JavaScript frameworks like Backbone, Ember, and Angular, it's really easy to ...

How about you make the form a little larger and show both login info & create form fields into the same dialog? So: Check if user is authenticated upon clicking on the "Create" button If logged in, just show input fields in dialog If not logged in, show login fields in top section and the create form at the bottom section of the dialog That way ...

I'd treat the entire graphs as buttons, something like this: this way, you provide some degree of information to the user and make your element the trigger of an action, saving space as well as steps in your process. Of course you would need to test, but I think this approach will greatly reduce any cognitive dissonance by adding a quick eye scan ...

There's one thing I've learned from Reddit, Yik Yak, Stack Exchange, and any other platform with visible metadata: scores increase engagement. You receive no significant incentive from participating, other than a number—yet psychologically we want to beat others. As long as it fits your platform, this might be a great way to increase involvement.

I get the impression that you think auto-save saves a complete snapshot of the document. If this were true, then it is indeed hard to see how undo will work. Here's what really happens: each time the user performs an action, that action is saved locally (on the person's machine). You referred to this as a logical chunk. When the auto-save kicks in, all of ...

Autosave is popular for Web apps because for various reasons, but one important one is the unreliability of the client-server interface. HTTP request responses may time out, websockets may disconnect, or the user may simply hit a button and navigate off the page or close the browser by accident. Engineering for autosave is non trivial. Often, enterprise ...

The general trend in IA for solving this type of problem is to use what is most commonly known as Faceted Navigation. To solve the choice overload and performance issues, the faceted navigation needs to first present only the most relevant filters/attributes in an intelligent manner, and second allow searching with auto-complete to access deep ...

Looking at you site you can hardly recognize those are tabs initially we are on the home tab, but we cannot see it is selected therefore we cannot see which of the tabs are hidden To change both of those points we would most likely highlight the current tab and kind of combine it with the underlying context. I would choose one of the following: 1.) ...
