I have some tables with data where I display for each row multiple action buttons.
I have now sometimes buttons where I am not sure wether I should allow the user to click on it because on the new loaded page he can not do anything.
Now I see 3 options:
On the new loaded page show a user notification like " You have not configured yet entity x and entity y. Click the link to do it: link here..." if he clicks the link he is redirected to the page where he has to configure entity x and entity y.
Technically Its not possible right now, but I also could show the above user notification when the user just clicks on the button - there is no new page loaded at all -
I disable that button which is defined in html table column 5 and I show in column 6 a hint that he has still to configure the entity x/y and I could even show there the redirect link for user friendlyness...
Which option has the best user experience?
