If I intend for a user to click one of four related but different submit buttons on a page and I also plan on having a brief paragraph explaining what each button is supposed to accomplish, what is the "best" way of presenting these action buttons along with their respective text?
The two ideas I have in mind are as follows:
- A separate button for each action, when the user makes their choice, a dialog box is shown containing the explanation and Cancel and Submit buttons.
- A tab for each submission, then the explanation text and a Submit button within each tab area.
I wondered if there is a "standard" way of doing such a display or other considerations better than the list two
