I have created a web application that the user can change the report filters, the report columns visibility and order.
All these are automatically saved so the user doesn't have to press a 'Save' button or make any other action. The next time she logins everything is as she left them.
My problem is that I have received several mails that people asking me to save the changes because they don't want to setup the report every time(they don't have to since it's
autosaved at the first place).
Clearly these people are not confident that the configuration is auto saved.
What do I have to do to communicate the
autosave feature of my application?
- Show a spinner next to every
- Show a full page spinner? (since the saving doesn't take long it will look like flashing)
- Show a small save icon that fades in and fades out at the top right?
- Or something else?
