In my web application, there is a process that, when run, displays an important message to all active users and requires them to acknowledge my dismissing the message.
My first thought was to display a modal that requires the user to accept before continuing usage of the app. However, if the user is already in a modal, this would have the unfortunate effect of having a modal over a modal – something I would very much like to avoid. I see this happen in operating systems, and it always annoys me. Does anyone have an alternate idea?
Edit: Code Mavericks solution is a possible solution and the one I have been going with for now. I am leaving this open for a bit with the hope that someone comes up with a non-stacked modal solution.
For claricication: The user is in the modal to perform a task within the app. When another in the same enterprise performs a different action that affect all users, they will need to be notified as this may impact the work they are doing.
