I am designing a list that is mainly used to compare different items. By default all items are compared, but when the user filters on different attributes, such as name, date or tags, only the filtered items gets displayed and compared.
I also want to user to be able to select any items in the list and then compare only the selected items. My thought is that I could let the user select items with a checkbox on each item, and then press some button to filter away all other items. This could be shown by displaying a "Selected items" to integrate this with the rest of the filters I want.
- Is there a better design for this?
- If not, the user might need to include more items after the filtering is done. How should this be solved? I was thinking of adding the non-selected items at the bottom of the list.
Thanks in advance, Markus
