A reason for accepting months as words is that some people (including myself) struggle to remember the numbers of the months! Obviously, there's no equivalent problem for days, so allowing 'th' and 'nd' doesn't help anyone
Lee Crossley we avoid doing it. I believe it is bad for accessibility ( Tom Byers can confirm). It can reduce usability for users who are not expecting it. It also makes it harder to correct errors. The user need is to support people filling in the form, not filling it in *faster*.
Or zoom in and out in maps. It's odder to have the zoom in button disappear than having a consistent interface. Worth keeping in mind that these use cases are nearly all very rare on the services we make.
I think it depends on the context. We normally use 'Back' would to take the user to the 'page they were previously on' - ie not a specific page. Though there may be contexts where it could be closer to how 'back' is used on iOS - ie up one level.
In this case the user has started on 'Business overview', gone through a process to amend business details and at the end of this clicks to return to 'Business overview'. So in their mind they are very much returning to 'Business overview' rather than continuing to it.
If this green button is on a screen that confirms the amended business details, 'Continue' would be my preference. If it shows amendments that have not yet been confirmed, it would be 'Submit'. 'Back to business overview' doesn't seem a CTA; if the user would logically expect to return to business overview after confirming amendments, 'Continue' makes more sense. However, this is just one example and the query I received was more in general about use of capitals when referring to screen titles.
hm, good question on capitals, I'm not sure to be honest - We normally use sentence case throughout. So "Continue to business overview" or just "Business overview" - but this might be a question for a content person like Stephen Gill
I think it's sentence case. You either understand what we mean by 'Back to business overview' label or you don't - I don't think capping up 'Business' helps. If people don't understand what you mean, the answer is probably to change the label.
Harry TrimbleRob Le Quesne does this pattern assume that all steps are relevant to all people? What should happen when we only know what steps you should take because of your answers to previous questions? (branching)
Only the tasks users must do. We tested a lot adding tasks based off users answers in the beginning. For example if a childminder answers they will be looking after kids 5 or younger, then the prototype added a 'do first aid training' task to the task list
this makes email address a requirement. What do we do with people who don't have them? Or share an account. I would recommend they open one and provide links to Gmail, Outlook. I think the complexity of supporting alternative models is too great and could impact too much on the large majority.
