I have an application that has a variety of different panels on it (similar to a dashboard of sorts) and I'm struggling with how to inform my users about a specific
Back button and how to label it.
Currently, this portion of the dashboard looks something like this:
There are summary stats at the top, then various types of charts below it. When the user clicks on a specific sale (the main table), they will get specific statistics related to that sale. When the user clicks once, the layout becomes this:
The back button only controls the statistics panel, so if the user clicks
Back, it will take them back to the
Summary Stats. The table of sales won't change and the charts on the bottom won't change. How do I:
- Let my user's know that the
Backbutton exists and
- Make sure they understand that it only applies to the
Summary Statspanel and not the whole application
Will users intuitively know that the
Back button is referring to the stats panel or do I need to give them more direction and label it something like
Back to Summary Stats?
