I think you are putting too much expectation in the video without any prior warning of what will happen. I have the image of the Olympic's dive: before the jump there's an animation on the screen of how the action will be performed with some technical info, so the viewers already know what they will see. The same thing you can use in your application, find ...

It is worth considering using time intervals. I think that a counting counter for example from 5-0 could work here (or other time period) A lot depends on the context and environment in which the user is located It's possibilty to omit the CTA, instead user the counter which changes the step every designated (convenient) time interval. this approach will ...

Are you using voice/verbal instructions? Cause you should! Like in any dance or martial arts related class, I think the best way we can learn to do some new or unknown movement is to receive clear physical and verbal instructions, starting with a step by step slow pace explanation accompanied with physical demonstration and verbal instructions. Mimicking ...

Broadly, I'd tend to agree with Danielillo's answer, but the Devil's Advocate in me couldn't help throw the following together... In your example, the colours behind the users are not being used for anything, so there seems little point in keeping them (especially given the problems that Danielillo mentioned of choosing "usable" colours). However, it takes ...

Multi colors are useful for differentiating elements, a function that is not necessary in this case. In fact the difference is given by the user name or nickname. In some cases color differentiation adds complexity and conflict: will a boy like to have the color pink? Would a user like to have a brown poop color? Will a user like his/her name to disappear ...

I think this might be a better solution, in this example you can select from either parent and either hide or show the available selections in a highlight, you could also provide collapse controls on the parents to reduce the amount of space and a clear all.

"Read More" CTAs are used on article/news sites to help determine if users are just opening the article, or if they're actually engaged enough in it to continue reading the rest. In the example above, the CTA given may not be the best option. If they're looking for the graph and already have access to it, this is just slowing down how they're retrieving ...

The problem is not with the mailto: but with the format of the link. If you format your email link like this: Email Then you will run into the issues you described. Users may just want to read or copy the email address but they can't (easily) because the only option is to click the link and leave it up to the browser/mail client to handle it. However, if ...

You are correct in that the solution you suggested would be confusing to the user because it doesn't allow for both scenarios to be implemented in the same design pattern unambiguously. The two scenarios to consider here are: A: Select a country first and then select an Organisation that falls under the Country OR B: Select an Organisation first and then ...

Let's look at the components of your problem first: We have two possible dimensions: Country or Organization One single metric: Presence Yes or No USA GERMANY FRANCE Pizza Hut Yes No No Mc Donalds Yes Yes Yes Oreo No Yes No This is clear right? Now let's say we do this instead: ...

Once I was at a VUI (Voice User Interface) conference, points I remembered: voice customization - the voice of a 32 year-old woman or 18 year-old man? NLP algorithms have a problem with understanding sarcasm / irony and indirect sentences Reading emotions based on sound waves from your voice and adapting to this message is also a problem Here You have more ...

I think adding custom filters that are usually a combination of sorting and filtering is known as "Faceted search" technique. On Wikipedia, this is defined as: a technique which involves augmenting traditional search techniques with a faceted navigation system, allowing users to narrow down the search results by applying multiple filters based on ...

This is commonly referred to as a Side Panel or a sliding Side Panel. If it blocks the user from interacting with content obscured by an overlay, it is effectively acting as a modal. Side panels do not always behave this way though, and can push content over as well as overlaying it.
