You must do it by yourself and show alternatives that you tried. I did a fast wireframe for you to think about. On my example, I just reorganize grouping by year, month and ordinate by days. I mixed countries because it's easier to find by date and if you need to see by the country you just make a filter on the results. EDITED Please observe that this is ...

If this menu is for the customer definitely the table option is not a good idea because the user is not trying to study or work. They just want to eat some pizza. With all these flavours will be very hard to do it without images. See some alternative ideas using images. If the menu is digital then will be hard to give the best way because we can use a lot ...

One point that I don't think has been made is that the context menu always uses the element the click occurs on as its context. This is a bit tricky on a table, where you are clicking on a cell, but want the context to really be the row containing the cell. Even more so when it's not just the parent row, but a group of parent rows. The context makes more ...

It would be good UX for a general UI, but it is bad UX on the web. Your custom right click menu will block the regular one, what is against the principle of least surprise and possibly against what the user wants to do. Maybe he likes to use the browser's context menu, e.g. for copy, select all or even some more advanced options of current browsers, like ...

I don't think there is a clear answer to the question if a context menu is good from a UX perspective or not. Others have pointed out many aspects in their answers. What I would like to emphasize from these is the fact that the context menu should only be an additional way, not the only way to execute these actions. I see the problem that unexperienced users ...

No, it's not bad UX, but it's risky and requires additional concerns What happens if the user's right button doesn't work? a trivial task becomes impossible What happens with touch screens? However, I think there are undeniable benefits in your approach, so I think you can do it, just keeping a way to make this context menu or its related actions work even ...

This post I will answer like a web user. I have a confession: I'm always trying to use right-click on the web tools (web applications that work like a tool, like Google Drive) and nobody care with this. Rarely I saw someone using it. Otherwise, I will feel strange, maybe unhappy, if you do it on a website or e-commerce. Congratulations for your idea. ...

I think it is a great idea to use right click to context menu. It is a norm in desktop application and I see no reason for it not to be the case in web interfaces. And many if not all tools from Google and Microsoft now use right click actions to offer content related actions. And right click can be nicely replaced with long tap on touch-enabled devices, ...

I've actually tried to right click on some cells to see if I could add more rows or columns (and sometimes it doesn't happen at all and I have to look for another tool). So, from my experience/opinion as a user, it's a good idea I would like to see more often. From a UX designer perspective I would tell you to test it in some way, asking the user which ...
