So happy to find this forum! First post here, hope I understand the intent:
I am trying to design a settings menu for HVAC control and I just really can't figure out the best way to portray the available options concisely so that the menu looks sleek.
There are some obviously styling tricks I could use to make things look a little nicer initially (like right-indent the options [dropdowns, toggles, etc], and center the buttons at the bottom).
At first I thought it might be a good idea to break them up into category but that hardly helps me since almost every entry is a different category. Below is what it looks like currently:
There is intended to be two settings for allowing simultaneous heat/cooling: Alert or No (hence a toggle switch since I think that looks cleaner)
Also there are two settings for Units (C or F) so I cant tell if a toggle or a dropdown would be better here.
The other option for Override is:
2) "wait until the next scheduled set-point event"
and the other two options for slave disconnect are:
2) "Use last setting"
3) "Do nothing other than attempt reconnect"
I thought about also trying to narrow down the description of each entry to no more than 2 words but then also incorporate an
i-button (for information on hover) but this still doesn't solve the lengthy dropdown options.
Eager to hear all thoughts, thanks!
