Some users may be reading e-mail on a device which does not include a web browser or in a context where an activation code is easier to use - i.e. SMS users who make use of their providers' e-mail gateways or mutt users (okay, there's no help for mutt users - they probably don't need it anyways).

Great info - making the case for a mobile-friendly shopping cart will be a little bit easier. Thanks!

comment Most effective way to display the enable/disable part of a setup page
"We have an admin section with a number of different settings users can go to..." - could you clarify? Are you talking about administrative users changing settings for unprivileged users or administrative users changing settings for themselves?

comment Who designs great UIs with usability testing?
+1 for the same reason that software isn't designed by troubleshooting (but that's no reason to say you can't design with troubleshooting in mind - i.e. by using specific, context-appropriate error messages)

+1 for lots of resources which could contribute to a feedback collection and tracking strategy - this is exactly what I was looking for.

+1 for clicktale - I think there could definitely be some potential there, though I'll consider clicktale for the demo (versus the distributable code) to avoid any potential privacy concerns.

+1 though the problems of a distributed userbase and localization (which may be community-generated) make hallway testing unrealistic. The application itself will include multivariate testing capabilities, though I honestly hadn't put too much thought into a multivariate testing tool which runs multivariate tests on its own interface - "head you like A/B testing so we put an A/B test in your A/B tester so you can test while you test" - I like it :)
