I am writing a little webapp, and am stuck on a UI hangup. I have a global menu bar at the top of the screen, that when the user is signed in consists of:
- Signed in as Joe User (with username as link to account page)
- My Account
- Sign Out
My question is about the second item. It takes you to a screen where you can edit your user profile details (name, email, etc.) and change your password. But it will also eventually allow you to do things like upgrade your account to a pay version, enter payment details, manage other users who are attached to your account, etc.
Originally I was going to have a separate 'User Profile' and 'My Account' links, but I think this is way too ambiguous for most users.
Does the whole 'My Account' thing make sense? Would just 'Account' be a more standard way of doing things? Or should I split these back into two?
