There are a few things that you could do. If the files are large and bandwidth is a concern, you could try to match size and filetype to see if it is actually a duplicate. In that case just skip it. If you know beforehand the types of file will be download and they happen to be too important to be missed. Just save it while appending time in filename. If ...

Yes, def a settings thing. You might allow the user to have a setting switch that states "Overwrite Existing" [yes] [no]. IF there is no settings option, THEN have a dialog that states "File already exists, would you like to rename?" If that is not possible, then you might have documentation that explicitly states "Files must have unique names because..."

Consider marking only the files that need user attention. Having icons for the good, bad, and indifferent can clutter up the report and make it hard for the user to find the information that is important to them. If files that are good or not required do not need any user action, they may not need an icon. That would draw more attention to the bad files (...

I agree it's not expected behavior and in the example given which is to expose the Settings option, why not just have the user click on the Settings icon or button? A toggle or switch is to toggle/switch between two binary values so it's not to be used for opening modals because in the example given, it would mean the value is Settings Window Open/Settings ...

If it is not a confirmation pop/up (which you should try to avoid, since users tend to get them out of the way without reading the message within) the answer is no. I have to say that I'm thinking about a switch as toggle. A switch does enable or disable something full stop. I doubt that a user would expect something else using a switch. If it triggers a ...

Technically it could, but it's not the expected behavior. When clicking on a toggle the user expects to switch from a state to another , he does not expect to get a pop-in. Except if it's an important warning really related to the state on wich the user have just switch on by clicking on the toggle , i would personally not recomend to use a toggle to ...

Generally there are two sides to this, which you have to make work together: SEO driven Users will find your content or products through Search (SEO). They'll land on a page that is not your home page. If they are unsure of where to go next, or want to 'audit' the trustworthiness of the site, then they'll click home. Your homepage should convey trust ...

You should consider a few strategies for helping users to focus their energy (attention and possibly frustration): Expectations Management Use a predictive system for the length of time until an agent might help them. This can be something you build, or a SaaS service you 'rent', or an extension of your existing software. You can outsource the work for ...

I kind of agree with Mo'ath but I think he has missed a bit. In the question, you state the folders may contain hundreds of files, therefore I think it is imperative to try and inform the user the consequence of deleting that folder, as such I think this is clearer about the consequence of the action.

I am building a comment section and I am trying to display clear call to actions to get the user to participate in the current debate. Your current design contradicts what you say you're looking for: the clear call to actions is visually subordinated to all the info content. In fact, all of the design contrasts are in favor of the content, not the action ...

Depending on your audience it might be safest to avoid using vowels in your ID if users are meant to see this ID. So many bad words are easily removed from accidentaly being part of the ID by removing vowels.

If I am understanding your question, there are some fields on your form that when information is entered, override some other fields that are no longer needed (for example, use saved phone number vs. enter a new one) First the field should be disabled (visually, that is usually achieved by reducing opacity or graying out) Second if the user has already ...

It is quite possible to over-analyze the scenario and end up not being able to make the best decision. Here are some potential things you can consider in making the initial decision, and then based on feedback or testing from the users you can further tweak the design. Consider the relationship between the actions and the information on the table cell when ...

Inline Button/Call to Action Buttons Should Be available in same Column of the row. no need to give it in two different columns. Also on Button Hover you can provide information. which generally refers to "Tooltips". Also don't gray out whole Row on hover, if it's required then go for lighter color shade, this resembles to call for to disabled row or ...

Of course next to each other and as close as possible to the mouse hand. The shorter the user's travel on the screen, the better the interface design. You are forcing the user to visualize a pattern of lines, something visually tedious, if on top you make them go from one side to another to interact with the respective buttons, it makes the situation worse....

The broader strategy is called "onboarding". User onboarding...is the process through which new software is designed such that new users are provided and acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors in order to become “up and running” and effective users of website, app, or software service.1 The manner in which you achieve this can vary. ...

I do not have an example. But in your solution it seems unclear why I can remove some selected items but not others. This brings me to the following solution: Place the previously submitted values outside the dropdown. You can even label them so it is clear that they are submitted already. In the dropdown you place only the values still available. So the ...
