When to launch an asset download

Expectation by the user is that they will receive a White Paper if
they provide their own details. If they have to press another button,
that is annoying. If they see a button that suggests more steps that
can be a stopper as the User may think there are more hoops to jump
through. Exit User; lost conversion.

I can't see why submitting a form and allowing download is NOT
conversion. It will be tracked in the logs anyway. Apart from showing
that they REALLY want the White Paper by clicking again on another
button I don't see the benefit.

fits into the mix in digital agencies or other "non-traditional"

Impossible data entry control

In early interaction design sessions, my business partners are asking
for the following: I don't believe it exists.

1. Web Page with simple template allowing data entry.
2. Data must be able to be "pasted" in from other sources (most
likely from a spreadsheet)
3. Data will be variable (1 - N rows)
4. Data format will need to be validated on submission. (Two columns
of data will be allowed, one an identifier and the second a currency

I'm thinking of GDocs spreadsheet type functionality - but am not
aware of that type of control being commonly available.

Listing requirements for a web application

Hi all,

We are currently working on an online site/application - though the
requirements are fairly basic (IE7+ or FF3+), the target audience
could have any range of browsers.

Is there any standard way of displaying browser requirements to users
to guarantee they have a good experience? I'm having trouble finding
examples of this online.
