How can i make sure my Users understand that when they delete a file on the cloud, it is deleted for everyone else in the organization as well?
It seems a decent amount of our users don't understand that they are in a public workspace, or don't get the concept.
I don't want to use warning dialogs, because those are usually ignored, and can get quite annoying.
Edit: the cloud is used by companies for storing projects created with our product, I'm currently reworking the delete function. Our company doesn't do a lot of user research, so all know is what the product owner told me.
I have tried different things,
- having a "xx workspace members" indicator on screen
- Writing "Delete for everyone" instead of "Delete"
- Renaming the "Projects" tab to "Team-Projects"
But nothing is foolproof enough to convince my coworkers and the PO. They insist on having a big confirmation dialog explaining to the user exactly why what he is doing might(!) be a bad idea.
I don't think anyone is going to read it, and there is no tangible way for us to know whether deleting this specific file is a problem. So we would have to show it every time.
I would like for the user to implicitly understand the concept of our Cloud storage.
