One alternative would be to use OAuth to leverage one or more social network authentication services. These social networks have already taken the user through the email confirmation process. It is a complicated process for you, the programmer, but many CRM's and cloud services have ways of making it much easier. Meanwhile, it is simplicity incarnate for ...

I don't know how relevant it is to your situation, but I'd just like to share my CAPTCHA solution. There is no CAPTCHA on registration. Instead, users are required to play a little bit of the game that they have signed up for, before they will be allowed to send message and post on the forums. This means that anyone wishing to bot their way onto the site ...

Google have RECAPTCHA the idea being you check a tick box and this verifies you as human. Google RECAPTCHA Using small games to confirm a human identity could be used, however this is said to make a site feel more unprofessional on a website not targeted at a younger audience. Asking the user a question and a correct answer validates the user. There ...

Besides math- and image- captchas there is a rather new approach from google that recently made its rounds through various newsletters. They call it "reCAPTCHA" and its based on the idea of seperating bots from humans by a single click. While I still don't know much about it myself yet I still hope that this approach will some day make it to the real world ...

Captchs Usability Captchas have a series of issues when it comes to usability. to name a few ; They interrupt the user’s workflow and they are inaccessable to people with visual disabilities they are also hard to decipher in normal circumstances. so here is my suggestion: Ask the user a simple question or a couple of generic questions, for example what ...

Try making a capcha, but making the images display a simple math problem. This way, it will be harder for a robot to do, while the image can be less distorted and easier for a human.

As "checked" is technically one of the 2-part positive "approved" states (checked and executed), I would recommend the following to suggest this: I would also strongly advise taking onboard the point about changing the terminology to "reviewed" - it is a more specific description of the action taken (anyone upvoting this should also upvote the original ...

I would say using the word "checked" is complicating things as the associated icon needs to be the same as "executed", which is confusing for the users. I would suggest changing "checked" to "reviewed" as it implies the same thing. Change the icon to something such as the one below and leave the green and the larger check mark to the final stage of the ...

Suggestion #5 sort of defeats the question. If it's possible to delete "daughter" (don't know if this is proper lingo) Bs along with "parent" A, why not always suggest that? On the confirmation dialog, alert that the current action will result in multiple entities (A and Bs) being deleted (list daughter Bs if possible) and confirm to delete the entire ...

Avoid the error. It will only lead to frustration and confusion. Add help text to instruct the users about the system constraints. You could also add an additional highlight if the user does select an illegal selection to help correct (if it is allowed, of course). Error prevention Even better than good error messages is a careful design which ...

I'd just make the message less "chatty" (pardon the ASCII art) TERMINAL NUMBER: x PERIOD: 11/20/2014 until cutoff time PRINT AND CLOSE ALL TRANSACTIONS ? [No] [YES, PRINT AND CLOSE ALL TRANSACTIONS] A schematic and to-the-point message is in my experience easier to grasp (they can check the data ...

As msparer suggested, Stating the main action first and then offering context/side effects is a very good step to take. The other thing I'd definitely do is to label your buttons descriptively. It could look something like this: Are you sure you want to close all transactions on terminal x? Closing will also print the transactions of 11/20/2014. ...

If this choice is something that cannot be undone and would cause difficulty to a user to make the wrong choice, it would be more worthwhile making them type in a pin or a password for example. Users get a bit 'trigger happy' with options and may not understand the consequences of an incorrect decision. Facebook are a good example of this - they don't really ...

A problem I see there is that the initial action has an implied consequence that might confuse your users. According to your mockup, the transaction day gets closed as soon as the data gets printed. It seems like "Printing" is the main action and closing the transaction day is the side-effect. It really should be the other way round. Name the CTA "Close ...
