comment Should we provide “back” button for mobile website?
Regarding "site hierarchy with links" (aka "breadcrumbs") on mobile, see ux.stackexchange.com/questions/16210/…

After posting this, found ux.stackexchange.com/questions/7216/… and ux.stackexchange.com/questions/16545/… (not sure why they didn't appear in my initial search query)

thanks, but I'm not sure I'd assume "done" takes me to the previous page, as a back button would. Looking fwd to others' comments.

comment Is it clear to non-tech users that “share page” on this mockup means share the page user was on when menu was clicked
In my non-expert opinion, it's generally a mistake to not design for easy usability and understanding for a very broad audience. Also, I do think there are lots of ways people do things, not just the way that seems best or easiest to me.

comment Is this “safe scrolling area” for a mobile menu, so users don't accidentally click an option while scrolling, a good idea/user experience?
It's just my experience on the mobile Web - no specific example stands out among the rest. I very often scroll and accidentally click while intending to scroll.

Apologies I wasn't clear - this isn't one single website, but happens very often on lots of different sites using Safari on my iPhone 4.

It's generally not an app, but the mobile version of a website in a mobile browser. The example above isn't for an app, but also for a mobile website.

Thank you for your helpful response, though I'm still unclear on whether the "safe scrolling area" I'm proposing is a good idea/ux. I do accidentally click all the time while trying to scroll, but maybe this is a rare problem at large.

comment Is there a rule of thumb for when to allow users to save draft of a form?
@AlokJain Tks, definitely considering your suggestion. Creates a new problem though: a user may return to create one or twenty entirely new issues instead of the auto-saved one(s).
