There is a subpart of the user workflow in the product that I am designing that I am having trouble with.
The user is at a step where they have to fill-in patient data, in a modal window. Once they are done, there are three things they might want to do:
- enter another patient's information
- simply close
- close and fast-forward to image acquisition
Here is the global workflow for this interaction :
In one use-case, they might want to enter as much data as they can in a single session, but without carrying on with the image acquisition. And so they would "save and add another" multiple time, then "save & close" :
In the other use-case, if the patient is in front of the user, they would want to enter the necessary data, and then continue as fast as possible towards image acquisition.
What I want to avoid as much as possible is displaying too many buttons (already three possibilities + cancel the form). I also do not know which button should be displayed as primary. I don't want risking having the user lost on what they should do after filling the form.
Here is an extreme example from another UI of what I want to avoid :
It seems to be a problem for users (you find a lot of tutorials when googling for "save and add another") with no clear solution. I found related questions on UX stack exchange (here and there), but not relating to the specific question of having multiple things to do after saving.
In the end, my question would be : is there a way to improve the user workflow by using a better UI solution?
