We need to display a download button to get a template document and upload button to upload the filled document, for some reason we want to have these two buttons in a single Modal window.

Any ideas and a reference screenshot would be much appreciated.

    not really sure what you want help with, are you saying you want someone to find or do a modal design for you? Could you please be a little more explicit about what the problem is? Also...you don't need a 'close button' and a 'close cross' in the corner on that screenshot you've included – Chris Jul 22 '15 at 11:42
  • Modals stop the user flow - one forces the user to interact in a specific area. Simple modals are ... simple modals. You may be overthinking the problem. – Mayo Jul 22 '15 at 13:13

    Help us understand more about the context of this problem. Why did your team decide to place both download and upload action into a modal? Are these two actions supposed to be performed one after another? Also what's behind the modal? How does the user arrive at this modal? What might they want to do afterwards? – nightning Jul 22 '15 at 16:30
  • In answer to a question you didn't ask: you're implying that the two functions MUST be in the same modal dialog box, so, if true, let's make it super clear what the user can do. I say this because the embedded assistance ("Before editing your template, … save a copy …"), while a helpful tip, is distracting from the main choices. I recommend you make it clearer that there are two distinct functions. For example, add a heading that asks: "What do you want to do?" and then subheadings "Download the template" and "Upload your modified template"—or whatever wording is appropriate for your audience. – JeromeR Jul 22 '15 at 22:04
