Re: [IxDA] Anyone using a tool that organizes UE issues by task, product or theme?

Hi Christina,

I use Mantis,which is a popular free web-based bug tracking system.But it can also be used in the UE issues tracking.

Up-sell and cross-sell

Looking for good examples of sites that do a good job up-selling (items that are more expensive that what you're viewing) and cross-selling (items that compliment).

I KNOW I've come across great examples, but nothing readily comes to mind!!

Cheers

Anyone using a tool that organizes UE issues by task, product or theme?

I'm collecting UE defects, concerns, ideas and need to organize them so that they can be addressed by a designer. Think backlog (details, priority etc) but organized so it works for a designer, not just a developer. I'd love to be able to tag issues so they can be sorted by theme, areas of the site, specific tasks etc. I'd like visibility into trends across a user type, tool or interaction, so we are solving real issues not just firefighting. Excel just isn't cutting it.

What are tool(s) are you using? What's working, what isn't working?

Thanks in advance!

Re: [IxDA] Anyone else having trouble getting used to Office 2007 menus?

Interesting conversation, I got 2007 only recently, and am not a big fan of the new Ribbon either. It seems like it was a "Bright Idea", executed poorly.

Double Click Duration

Hi folks,

I'm trying to dig up some guidelines for implementing double-click.  I can and have searched teh internets and consulted, e.g., The Essential Guide to UI Design. :)  I also know most of the principles and can derive from what the OSes and such do as well as the next person.

I say all that in hopes of focusing replies--I'm specifically looking for references based on testing and/or real-world practice.

Re: [IxDA] Google's New Design

I find the top nav is not only redundant but misleading, will I get the same results for images on the left than on top? Top nav would seem to indicate it will take me to the Images search engine front page, while left nav would filter/search for images based on my keywords; it turns out both act in the same way.

Cite: Envisioning Your Future in 2020

http://designmind.frogdesign.com/blog/envisioning-your-future-in-2020.html

Love this Ludwig's comment " : If life comes to this, I'll probably consider suicide", IMHO, this is really a eye-tracking envisioning, the future should be more human with more hidden tech.

Br,
