Re: [IxDA] Show more options, but not fewer

I can think of one instance of this in some user testing I did some years ago.

advice on usability testing for complex sites

Can anyone recommend methods for performing usability tests on large,
complex applications with lots of conceptual dependencies?

We're running into issues in our design of a test. We want to test
"Section B" of our application, but "Section B" doesn't make a lot of
sense unless you've already been exposed to "Section A". The trouble is,
Section A is pretty complicated in itself. They're definitely too big to
test together in a single 60 minute test.

What to do, what to do...!

User Recruiting Firm suggestions

My company (Lakamo Recruiting) specializes in Usability recruiting.
One of the most important criteria for Usability recruiting is having
recruiters who understand what Usability does, why it differs from
Focus Groups, and what are the challenges inherent to Usability
recruiting.

Smaller companies that get to know your recruiting needs will usually
do a better job. It is much more personal and the recruiters are paid
to think, not just to sit in a room dialing.

Users and Groups UI

Hello All,

I am looking for examples of "user and groups" UI.

I have a product where I need to be able to view and assign users and
groups. I'd like to be able to click on a user to view which groups they are
in, and add/remove a group in their list. I would also like to be able to
click on a group and see which users are in it, and add/remove users.

Any examples you could throw my way, would be appreciated. I'd like to come
up with something clever, that isn't too clunky.

XP: Extreme Programming & Product Usability

They don't fit in. :)

Here's why:

XP relies on a "customer" to decide which features should be implemented
and when. A "customer" may be a product/project manager, customer service
employee, a marketing resource, etc.

A different approach

Touch screen application interfaces have been following a common frame design for quite sometime now.
When i got an oppurtunity to work on couple of similar projects, 1st thing i did was i started observing the way people interact with the devices. I went through most of the similar applications.
As i was going through, lot of questions came in my mind. Few were like.

1. Technology has grown so much, isn't the practice of interaction with it also has grown?

Another Flash-FLEX question - design books?

I promise this isn't related to my previous Flash question - just coincidence.

Are there books people would recommend that talk about how to create
good designs in Flash/FLEX. For example, there appear to be
particular ways one has to work with CSS to get the effect one might
want. And there is a particular widget set that has certain
affordances, some of which seem better than others. I'm looking more
for some "how to" and "best practices" information than I am general
design pattern type stuff. But I'll take what I can get.

Thanks in advance,
--Alan
