In this article by Nick Babich, Design a Perfect Search Box, he suggests that if the search field is important, it should be prominent, showing the text field instead of only the button. The main reasons are: It can be the fastest route to discovery for users; Search hidden behind an icon makes search feature less noticeable; Search hidden increases the ...

Did you ask your (potential) users about their expectation? Seriously, that should be the UX-focussed approach. Not knowing anything about the target user group, or the content, my general recommmendation would be to make it work like a filter: Keep all articles which have an active tag assigned. So, if you uncheck "learn", the "tech" tag is still active,...

(1) Ellipses + read more This will create confusion as the entire is ideally clickable. Also, read more usually shows the full content in the current view (according to common patterns). (2) Ellipsis + tooltip I will not advise the usage of tooltip since once users already know what it does it will become redundant having it on each column. (3) Just make ...

I think if you already have a lot of calls from customers about needing to downgrade their plans, it may be a pricing or expectation issue and not necessarily a UX thing. But if you still think it's a UX thing, Zoho Meeting allows you to downgrade your plan in some easy prompts.

It depends on what sort of data you are expecting. Expanding fields are great for compact forms where the user isn't likely to need multiple lines all of the time but you still want to provide the option for longer inputs. Generally these are used for the message input in chat interfaces where comments tend to be short, one-line statements but can be entire ...

Your question is basically about how to answer both the needs of your average user and your power users when it comes to balancing the number of options/features available versus having a clean and easy to use experience and user interface. I tend to look at how other successful apps approach problems like these. One example is of a complex app is Figma. ...

I think it's a great idea considering how you intend to target 2 different key audiences. My 2 cents would be to show that the "Short summary" is the one active by default and should perhaps be placed on the left. Also you could consider adding "view full case study" at the bottom of each short summary so viewers do not have to find it difficult to switch ...

In a modern computing environment, it's usually possible to "gray out" fields and selections dynamically. This is a well understood and reasonably intuitive paradigm. Since the reason you are flagging mandatory fields with red asterisks is to draw the attention of users to fields or toggles they need to deal with, I suggest that you simply gray out not ...

Instead of giving the users specific search terms or having them come up with their own, you could create realistic scenarios or ways in which they would typically use the search function. In this way, they would be motivated in completing the task since it's something they do in real life and also, you can get real feedback on the search results. Since it'...

Our (very niche) website allows anyone to create an account when we send a unique link in the body of a message to the specified email. Our choice has been to let people accidentally create duplicate accounts, since we believe that responding to that email is a sufficient warning. This despite the fact that our target audience includes people who still have ...

If your summary includes a progress bar, it will be easy for the user to visualize where they left and go back to this step quickly. If the progress bar is present in each step, you might not even need the initial wizard.

If you want to just check the visual side of accessibility (seeing that your examples aren't interactive prototypes, so they can't be tested for accessibility fully), you could go to WCAG 2.1, for example to see if colors and sizes are good enough. Target sizes For sizes, to achieve level "AAA" (which, arguably, means the buttons have good accessibility) ...
