Hoping to get some best practices on what should be shown on a landing page or a not logged in page prior to our users logging in. We have a landing page / public page before the login page.
And we have a search bar on this page to enable users to search our public content. We have links to product info, learning, case management but every time a user clicks on any of these links they would be taken to the login page. In fact, we have 6 such links + 3 others that say "Log in".
What we are debating now is if this would be frustrating for users to find each time they click on a link they are taken to the login page or is it still pertinent for us to keep these links as they provide info on what this portal can help with.
Any suggestions? Looking for best practices and any UX studies that would sway the decision makers one way or the other. Thank you!
