I have a column in a table that shows a list of "members" and their "item" count (I'm using abstract terms here). The purpose of this table is to show the members with the most items and allow the user to view each member's items.
From an interaction perspective, it makes sense to link the
Items column since users will view a member's items. I don't think linking the
Member column to go to the member's items makes senses (rather it would link to their membership page such as their "profile").
The issue that I'm encountering is that the number in the
Items column is usually small and therefore has a very small click target/is not immediately obvious that it's clickable.
Here are some alternates that I've created. I'm still not convinced that they look/feel better.
Alternate 1 - a dedicated "view items" link
This design feels weird not linking the actual number.
Alternate 2 - repeat the "items" text
This design is a little weird because in reality the "items" is longer (e.g. such as "viewed items").
How can I make it clear that the
Items column is clickable in this table?
