I have a bunch of user created items in a list on a mobile phone. I've broken the possible actions applied to each into four types, listed below in order of most often used:
- reply to internal messages
- share to external social accounts
- view analytics
- edit info
I'm having a very hard time figuring out how to let the user access each action, because of the differing intents behind each one. You have reading and creating content (reply), sharing, viewing numbers, and editing previously entered information. In the future, the user will be able to combine the analytics for multiple accounts, so I need to find a solution that allows for this. My ideal solution allows the user to act with one click
Options I've played with are:
- expanding the items in the list on one click, exposing buttons for "analytics", "share", and "view messages"
- clicking on an item bring the user to an overview page with "recent messages" and "simple analytics" sections (clicking brings user to a more in depth page). A large "share" button, and a subtle "edit" button are both at the top near the title of the item.
- More abstract ideas such as selecting the list item(s), then clicking a toolbar button pertaining to the action, but nothing that decreases the number of clicks.
p.s. If this isn't clear enough, I can quickly make some mockup images.
