I am updating an instructions page which relies on some information that is in an online book of laws (which is hosted elsewhere).
Currently, users are instructed to find a specific section in the book and given a link to a page on our site with the law book in an iframe. This page is used for other things too, so I can't put instructions directly on that page and I can't make the iframe start on the section that I am working with. That makes me think I have two options:
- 1) Leave it the way it is so users have to read the note and then go to another page. It's good that they don't have to leave our site, but this seems like a bad UX.
- 2) Give users a link which takes them away from our site to the exact page in the online law book that they need. It's good that this would take them directly to the information they need, but the downside is that it could be disorienting or confusing to be taken off of our site.
How would you all handle this?
