Following the OP's update, I'll start with a specific suggestion for their problem. This will be followed by the sort of approach that you might take in the more general case (a slightly updated version of my original answer).
Specific Answer: Campaign Events
As I understand your needs, your users still need to be aware of new events as they arrive, even ...
It's not strictly necessary. After all, you can always select your filters, and then look to see how many results you've got.
That being said, I find it nice to have. Let's say I'm looking for something in the price range of 100-199. But the parenthetical numbers tell me that there is only one item in that range, while there are 10 in the 50-99 range, and ...
This is a tremendously useful feature for me. On the sites where I use it the most, it can take a lot of thought to come up with the "right" filter. If I make a choice that I expect to cut my solution space by half, and it cuts it right down to 2%, or vice versa, it immediately conveys a ton of information about the situation I'm in.
Also, if I filter on,...
No problem as long as it is clearly conveyed!
There is nothing wrong with having one filter by default selected as long as you make it very clear to the users that this filter is by default selected:
1- It should be clearly highlighted.
2- It would be best being the first option on the left. Neither the second nor the last but the first. This location ...
Having multiple search buttons is confusing, my suggestion would be to have the search button always be at the bottom of the view and have the filter items scroll.
Example: The yelp iOS app search filter screen
Hi Menelaos Vergis,
I worked on something similar recently, and this was the way I approached it:
1. An initial link (or button) that launches the filter view:
2. A launched filter view that collapses upon application:
3. A collapsed filter view that is both editable and removable.
Let me know if this is helpful.
Some other filters:
The most viewed or listened
Best rated: if each podcast has a rating scale
Most liked: if each podcast has a like button
Trending: the podcast most viewed/listened at this time or week
By Calendar: view the added podcasts in a time period (from xx/xx/xx to xx/xx/xx)
Most commented: if each podcast has the option to leave a comment
Wow. Lots of constraints. It seems that filtering by subject is still the way to go, which means you'd have to change your subject names. Can they be shortened? Generalized?
And think about using a filterable dropdown. Typing into it shows just the items that contain the entered text. Granted, the user has to know at least a little about the subject names, ...
Filtering: When the list is filtered an an item is added it should only be displayed if it matches the filter. You are saying that you are afraid, that the user might leave the filter on. Yes, this is a risk but you would have to achieve to make clear to the user that the list is filtered. There are options like show the applied filters as chips, have a ...
I have a similar situation and use a similar method as Oluwatobi Mayowa, but I'm not showing each individual filter specifically in the collapsed view. I only indicate the number of filters that have been applied.
Filters collapsed, nothing applied
Filters opened, 2 applied
Filters collapsed, 2 applied
The reason I don't feel the need to show each ...
Definitely, don't go with two search buttons. Very confusing for the user. Which search should I press will be what they think? Use a single search button and make it fixed to the bottom of the screen. Also "Looking for" as a placeholder and title are confusing... Looking for what, jobs, pay rise, part-time work? If this is job titles the placeholder should ...
I would suggest having one save button at the end of all filter options. It would avoid unnecessary confusion for a user. Also, it demands extra space which makes the list much longer. If the lists are more than 2 scrolls, consider grouping few of them & make it expandable. Users feel a bit uncomfortable to scroll more than 3 times. Unless it's ...
Quick clarification: you mentioned in the title that it's a date and time picker, but the description only mentions a week picker. Could you clarify which features you need, and an example?
In the meantime, here's a quick example of a week picker, which might be easier for older audiences to use, for a couple reasons:
It is visually similar to a paper ...
That whole interface seems overly complicated. Even with the video, I'm not exactly clear what's going on. So my rating is "low".
Based on your description, it seems like a search/filter of content will be extremely important for most interactions with the system. With that in mind, I'd develope an overarching search pattern that works across the board.
It is not intuitive that you can see everything while checkboxes are empty, but it is already a standard because it require less clicking. I remember that I indeed was confused about it when I first saw filters in form of checkboxes, but I am use to it by now. I don't think that anybody will read it as negative filters. (If you check yellow you no longer see ...
UX wise, your first approach is very intuitive: 'all the check boxes unchecked on init'.
This way the user feels more comfortable selecting his or her choice (as preferred to when all the check boxes are selected already).
It also makes more sense intuitively that:
All items are visible and Unchecked
Users see all their options (unchecked unconsciously ...
I would really say I found it a little difficult to grasp initially but eventually got used to it after going through it for a couple of times.
I interacted with the design and would suggest that the filters (label 1, 2, etc) could be as a drop down list just below the pages and would appear only when you click them). This way you can actually have more ...
Hmm, very interesting probabilistic case
The purpose of the non-linear process is to provide the end user with the product he expects, and thus narrow them based on variables?
I recommend using Akinator, it is a tool that by means of questions is able to choose any person we think of from around the world!
however, the akinator ...
I think showing all items (including items with no weight value) as a first step is a good idea.
Give the user a call to action to exclude items with no weight value so that you make sure the user sees what he/she wants.
The call to action may be placed in places like:
just under the weight filter.
instead of the weight value in items cards.
a full width ...
I wouldn't recommend removing perfectly valid filter options only because the result set would be empty. One important principle of usability is feedback; the user should know what state the system is in and why (additional read: Visibility of System Status).
Removing filter options doesn't communicate the state to the user, as they wouldn't know why that ...
You can list the results and mention the certainty of each match. The more uncertain they get, the lower they show up in the list.
In my example below I show the criteria with a check mark or question mark, but it could also be a number with label (like: "2 available", "availability unknown" etc.) or whatever suits the design. This is an example of results ...
May be if you have an automated algorithm (data mining, AI etc.) running though uploaded images of hotel and visitor's reviews, then you might find these attributes mentioned there.
Then, you can show users these attributes derived out of analysis. However, we need to clearly mention - "these facilities are found in review/photos, need to confirm with hotel"...
Your design decisions should be made to highlight two critical info points, and clearly communicate how those are changing:
Total entries of your dataset
Total of your currently filtered sub-set
Ideally you would want some manner of animation applied as entries are added or removed from the total pool of data or your currently viewed filtered sub-set, and ...
I think it’s a bit confusing. People may think, “Are the search buttons only for those particular filter sections?” Not that it matters.
What if you broke out the true search pieces: location and looking for, and use the search icon, then have your filter section in a new “card” or area and use an “Apply” button?
Given your mockup, I think there would be at least some confusion because the states of the "inline" filters don't match the states of the corresponding filter bar filters. For example, if I set the filter bar "Query Status" filter to "Open", the inline filter should automatically be set to "Open" to match, and vice versa.
Jira has a "Portfolio" Feature which features search on a treeview (the searchbar filters the list on the bottom).
I also found an example from tibico.
Adobe XD and Apple's finder also search on treeviews but flatten the search, so that could also be an option.
Using pills may not be the optimum interaction:
- '+more' hides the range of options by default, making the user have to click more
- making the user select individual 'pills' is slow going if they have a wide budget range
- showing 'pills' that are unavailable may lead to 0 results, yet missing pills out of the scale may confuse the user :(
It might be ...
N/A or Don't Care or Any or All
I find it very helpful to include some sort of "any" option. Otherwise I might think I must pick something. Some possibilities include:
N/A = Not/Applicable
Which one works best may vary depending on the type of item being selected (price, brand, size, etc.) or the target audience.
Make It Clear
Get rid of fields which have had very low usage in the past.
Group items in single list if possible to reduce the number of filters visible.
For those which have listed items defined, use select dropdowns. Use dropdowns as much as possible to improve data quality and reduce duplicacies.
Display all options in a list if possible and allow multiple ...
