comment How long should a temporary notification appear?
@Bluewater My answer didn't set out to 'prove a best solution'. I said 'For what it's worth...' and stated facts about what I did and what the users said afterwards. Is that a -1 situation?

comment At what point should an application change the cursor to an hourglass or display a progress bar?
While this OP may not have an option in this particular scenario, my own opinion is that in the bigger scheme of things, the better direction to explore in is whether the application can show something useful and relevant instead of going into a blocking mode, so that users can get on with their tasks and feel like they are continually making progress at their own pace rather than waiting around for things all the time.

comment Best way to represent time related event during a day in a graph
It's not just about displaying the information, it's about reading the information. It's important to know what you want people to be able to easily determine from the graphic. For example, comparing admins with each other; compare total against a baseline; see overtime; validate core hours; spot slackers; transfer data to timesheets... There could be any number of use cases for which different display characteristics or highlighting of different parts of the data may be useful. Without knowing this, there's no telling what the most suitable method might be.

comment How to convey that an indicator is clickable
@VitalyMijiritsky I see where you're coming from in terms of being a GD question but it's also a UX related question in terms of methods of providing affordance and intent. The graphic design aspect has to be involved of course because this is a visual problem, but that doesn't immediately kick this ball over the fence into GD territory.

@rewobs so maybe a final line saying "75 more results in 15 other categories"...?

@JBERG - my examples are just that - examples - inspiration to do what you will - not an exact size template. :)

comment Why is it important to focus on user needs as opposed to requests?
There is some useful input to be had from the question How to discover what users NEED and not what they WANT - typically the answers are mostly along the lines that without understanding the problem and it's context (& its next biggest context) then you can't determine the best solution. You may in fact just fix the wrong problem or make the situation better for a minority but worse for the majority! Always try to reduce what you don't know and what you don't know you don't know!
