comment Similar buttons for very different actions in Gmail
+1 I used to love Google's icons and I thought they were very skilled at creating legible icons, but ever since the recent redesign where they introduced these newest icons, I can't figure out any of them besides Reply, Reply All, and Delete.

comment What are your views on having a button that says “Don't click this button”?
Also, if you really like the misleading "Don't click me" over something more descriptive, I just thought of "Coming soon" - Technically the feature that will be accessible by that button is coming soon and it wouldn't seem like something clickable, except to the users who know that it is.

comment Messaging a user success and error messages at the same time
I may be misunderstanding the OP but that seems to be the whole point of the error message. The user performed an operation, parts of it failed, and they would want to know what failed. Other users shouldn't see this, but the requestor of the action would want to know.

comment Messaging a user success and error messages at the same time
I would argue that this solution actually requires the user to do more work. You would be forcing them to look through the list to find the ones with issues, rather than just listing them for the user to read easily. Even if they were all grouped together at the end of the list, the user would have to scan the whole list to figure out where these start and risk missing some. Maybe some clear highlighting would help. Also consider if there are a lot of columns in this table, then it would be more difficult to find the value that didn't load correctly.

comment Represent multiple routes on a google map
The good thing about plotting them all on the same graph is then they can compare the routes. If you think they don't need or want to compare them, then separate graphs would be fine, but don't put them on a timer unless you have a good reason to. Time is money and they don't want to wait for all of the routes to scroll by. Maybe you could give them filter options, like "Closest", "Shortest", "Longest", and "Preferred Locations" so they can only view routes they are interested in.

comment Represent multiple routes on a google map
ahh I think your previous comment answers my question. In this case, the interface becomes very easy as you can show his current location, highlight the starting point(s) that are closest to him, and show their destinations in a similar color (so he can judge how long they are, where they go, etc.), and show some sort of line or route between those points. Then, even though there are a lot of locations drawn on the same map, only a few are highlighted, like in the example I linked to.

comment Represent multiple routes on a google map
@Siddharth thanks for the clarification. Is he accepting each of the routes on his schedule for the whole day or just choosing his next route?

comment Slider alternative
How usable is something like this on a desktop application? The touch and hold action feels more smooth and natural on a mobile device, but I don't think I would have the same dexterity with releasing a mouse click.

comment large amount of data on a single page
I like the idea of user profiles to knock out some of the information that they need to enter. This would obviously depend on the content of the application, but (1) if there is user information that they enter in everytime, then it would help to save time entering this over and over, or (2) if there are several different profiles that would necessarily go together, then allowing them to select a profile would fill out the related information.
