I apologize for this, a feature I hadnt noticed before popped up in my
gmail, "add event info"
Being the curious type I clicked it in part of replying to Dave. It
somehow pulled in an account setup by our admin for a group potluck
event in December. I didnt notice - apologies to the group.
Now the question I have, apart from my own carelessness, is are there
any guidelines on introducing features? Specifically I'm thinking
about staging features in with an overly helpful period then followed
by the feature falling back to 'normal'
The reason I ask is I will start 2 projects this year that will bring
fairly complex feature-sets in to the domain of a wider, maybe less
knowledgeable, group of users. Its a natural part of the
commoditisation of these products.
Does anyone have any advice or examples of interfaces that start
overly helpful and somehow grow with the user?
