I have a page where users can start a 'timer'. Users can add an Attachment to this timer. So attachments are child objects of a timer.
In the timer page, it's important that there is as little distraction from the timer itself as possible.
This is what I tried myself:
So I've added a FAB button in the bottom right corner and if you'd click on it, it will show a new view on top of the current view with all attachments (pictures) and you'll be able to add attachments.
Some problems with this:
- You can't see how many pictures there are without clicking on the button first
- Users don't know if the button is intended for adding a picture or getting a list of pictures or both
I'm not sure if this is the right thing to do in Material design. Should I create a sublist or table instead? Should I always show the pictures (for example under the stop button)?
I couldn't find anything about this type of hierarchy in the material guidelines.
