comment Notify a user why nothing happened
I'm still trying to prevent the user from clicking things that don't do anything. Can you add a visual of some sort to the unclickable items? (I avoid clicking any Google results that have their little "Ad" icon.)

comment Notify a user why nothing happened
If the system knows ahead of time which commands will result in no action, why not disable those commands? Better to prevent user confusion than to explain things afterward.

comment Drag and drop in long lists
If you can't find any published findings, try running a few informal tests yourself. Have a few people in your office, your friends, neighbors at the bar try dragging things around in a long list. That should show you what you want to know.

comment What are some of the user research methods conducted for an analytics based product?
You're saying that you'd like to test with CEOs and regional managers, but their time is hard to come by? Would people at the level below them test well?
