I'm actually working on a project done by another UX designer before me, and I have some doubts about the way users can save & cancel their actions on the page of new content creation.
This is a CMS backoffice. Users can create or modify a content and then chose between :
- save and stay on the page (button by default)
- save and back to the list of content
- save and create another new content
- have a preview
Also they can chose to stay online or not when they create or modify their content. When they save, if there are online, the content is published.
So here are my problems :
We can not save automatically because if users work in the online mode and make a mistake the auto save would published it online
I don't really like having one save button with 3 different choices (save and stay on page/save and create another new content/save and back to the list). Is that a good way to do ? I don't know how to make it better.
Here is an (ugly) sketch of this element (a bottom fixed tab-bar) :
I'm afraid that users miss the different saving possibilities and don't use it.
Thank you !
