I am building a Microsoft Outlook VSTO addin and I am trying to figure out the best way to lay out the UI and from looking through the office apps i can't seem to find the right layout pattern that matches the decision tree i want the user to take and avoiding any confusion.
Basically the logic flow of the addin is
User need to decide if they want to do simple or advanced inputs. Depending on the answer, they get to see the simple form or the advanced form popup (see mockup below).
After making their selection on that form, there is a little label on the ribbon that shows a summary of what their current state is (so its clear what they have selected on the popup form).
And then basically one other button that says "Place Order" that takes the inputs given and goes and runs some action.
I put this mockup as an example but I just feel like there might be a more elegant way to represent this using expected Office ribbon UI behavior.
Any suggestions for a better way to support the decision tree above in a more clear layout on the Office Ribbon?
