I'm hoping you can help me. I've been allocated the role within my organisation to look at how we can improve the usability of our systems. I'm not from a UX background at all so this is proving quire difficult. One positive to have come out of it is that I've realised this is the kind of area I'd like to work in. I'm a fairly junior grade within my organisation so I do have only limited influence.
QUESTION Has anyone ever designed an enterprise application's first release to have only a wizard for creating complex 'objects'; then, offered a more hands on solution for a hot fix or subsequent releases?
EXPERIENCE The above question occurred to me during a presentation of an enterprise application that took months to design. Moreover, it was only after the project had been developed could the design fully be realized in all of its complexity.
My gut tells me right-click actions in browser-based applications are
unconventional and should not be introduced (and if it is already
introduced, should be removed). I also feel even though the
application is for the "enterprise", this is a moot point because
in the end it is still a browser-based application.
What are your thoughts on right-click actions in web applications?
What about specifically for "enterprise" applications? Should there
even be a difference?
