I am currently working on the basic navigation for an online bug reporting tool. Users report bugs that are listed in tickets.
It is possible to create multiple projects. For example, agencies use the tool to track bugs on multiple client projects other users create separate projects for frontend bugs and backend bugs.
The user should be able to switch between projects easily. Currently, I have two options to do that:
Is there a best practice or UX research on this? What do users expect? I have seen both approaches. For example, Trello uses the drop-down approach while basecamp uses the extra page approach. I am also open for alternatives other than the two.
