I want community's thoughts on product edit page. Currently it is two column layout; one with attributes and other with input boxes but I'm having an argument with my product owner who wants one more column (exiting/previous value).
He thinks: user wants to see what was the previous value. Since user base is not technical, and with third column they can easily see and compare current and new value.
What I think is: perhaps user is not technical but when he/she lands on edit page, They will find pre-filled input boxes and if they wants to edit, they can simple erase and type again. Although, they can't see/compare but I think third column is not necessary and it will reduce the clutters on the screen.
It is just a developer perceptions and experience but no solid thesis to prove.
