From a dictionary definition of dashboard: the panel facing the driver of a vehicle or the pilot of an aircraft, containing instruments and controls. Using this as a jumping-off point, it would be perfectly safe to assume that controls to perform actions could happily be presented alongside data in a dashboard. In fact, if you remove the controls, you ...

Lists are generally used to show items sorted by a specified criteria (even if it is just based on user preferences) and can either have a value associated with the item (which is it sorted on).

The best practice is not to use a flag - flags are for nations, not languages. Many flags look alike or don't match the nationality of the user, which could be confusing. Use a label of the language that the page is currently in, and provide links to switch to other options in their languages. In the example below, the current language is English (US). There ...

I think the main difference between a shopping offer and an order request is that the offer has a specific object, if it's something to sell/buy, while the order is a transaction. Without knowing what the project's design parameters are, what I would try to set as the main difference are these two concepts: the object and the transaction. As an example, if ...
