I have a question regarding a quick help access. We are implementing an onboarding tool in a desktop (cloud based) app we have. This tool needs to have a quick help access in each page (help in context depending where you ate in the app). Now the usual position for that kind of help button is either a floating button or a tab stickes the the left side of the page, at the bottom right of the content.
We have old controls that we need to redesign as well including tables of 5 items with a scroll bar inside (I know it's aweful, I'm planning to implement something with a min of 10 option ans "next and previous" arrows to change pages) but in the meanwhile, that help hint button is covering some scrolls inside those tables.
Now first of all we transformed that tab into only a square with a question mark in the middle
So, few possibilities I would like to get feedback in: - we work with transparencies like 40% most of the time and have it only showing up 100% opacity when the mouse hovers it - or we have that tab showing up for fee sec each time the page is loaded and disappear on the side of the screen only showing a line and when the section is hovered it pops back in place so you can click it.
