I have a navigation bar on a page that has a bunch of links on it. The links all show various information on a user's "job" (nevermind precisely what this job is). However, depending on the state of that job, not all links will be relevant (e.g. if the job is still running, the "results" link would not be relevant).
How should this be communicated? I have thought of three options:
- Hide the links
- Disable the links (greyed out)
- Have them be clickable, and display a message on that page explaining that the info is not available.
Edit: The user creates their own jobs. They can create as many as they like. I am using the Bootstrap navbar component if that helps http://getbootstrap.com/components/#navbar.
