Re: [IxDA] Best practices for designing Terms and Conditions/Customer Agreement Interactions

I recently did a piece of work with a big financial organisation. Naturally, they're required to present these sorts of things to customers, but fully realise that most (the vast majority, >90 per cent according to our research) don't read them, and those that do rarely finish or fully understand them.

As Mike notes, it's a cost/benefit thing - for both the customer and the organisation.

We ended up providing a legally approved conditions summary that was visible in our process and links to the full conditions subsequently displayed in a light box.

Today's New Application for Making Applications...


"You have an idea for a multi-user networked application. Maybe it’s
a game, maybe it’s a new way to share music or photos, maybe it’s
something nobody’s ever thought of. A beautiful little jewel of an
application, you know that you can make something fantastic.

To hide or not to hide - resolution

Hi everyone

Thanks for all of the notes and suggestions. Its great to be able to put these questions out there and get such thoughtful responses! I thought I'd let you know the outcome of this one.

We're at the stage now where final decisions are being made on how to proceed with this, and we're going to go with a fairly informative and interactive approach. We'll have information about the advanced product available via splash screens during the standard installation process, and we'll have a link to upgrade information and purchase procedure (via a HTML page) under the help menu.

Displaying different data types in a grid/ table.


Has anyone successfully displayed or come across an example where different types of data are in a table on different rows?

To be clearer; data (results) does not share common column headers. Like Cars, Fruits and Computer components in a common search.

I can see that on a web application or a normal search these can be listed out like a page of results, but in my case I am constrained to showing them in a table of search results. I have tried a couple of options, but not completely convinced with it.
