Commenting prototype?

Hi there,

I am fully aware that prototype questions are many in this discussion
list, but I would like to focus on something specific:

What would you recommend for allowing clients to put comments
directly on your prototype?

I am thinking of the functionality you have in Adobe Acrobat
Professional, where you can add notes to an existing document. I'd
like to use a wireframe/prototyping tool that allows for this.

Axure seems like a good tool, but doesn't seem to have commenting
ability unfortunately. Am I right about this?

Online scheduling tool?

Does anyone happen to know of an online tool I can use to schedule
participants for a usability test? I've used individual emails in the
past, but the number of participants for the upcoming studies makes that
a challenge. I'd love to be able to set up a calendar and have folks
book a slot that is convenient for them, and have it be immediately
shown as busy for others. Is there anything like this out there?

Referring to the interview of Marc Benioff on the BW, salesforce.com created a new software enabled delivery platform, popularly refered to as SAS (software as a system). Now in the next innovation move he is talking about 'application marketplace', 'Internet Resource Planning' etc.

I think it kind of indicates the becoming of web 2.0 or the next generation x-web.

UX feedback for client question

Hi everyone,

I have been asked to give UX feedback on a website, and prepared a lot of handwritten notes on it. I now want to give this feedback to the client and I was wondering what format to present this feedback in a "professional" way. This is my first UX gig so your reply is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Soren -

It is a useful distinction - there is a lot more to usability and user
experience than just language.

re: Degree for IxD or related

Hi Mark.

I've looked around at IxD related education a bit. While I certainly
haven't been completely exhaustive, most of it seems to be at grad
school level. I believe there are a few undergraduate programs
(Rensselaer's "Minds and Machines" program, for instance), but I'm not
sure how many people you'll find how have "IxD" undergraduate degrees.

The "or related" part opens up some opportunities for you, however.

Can anyone point me to research about hiding interface elements?

A project that I am involved in has raised an interesting debate about
reducing clutter in an interface.

Specifically, one side believes that it is ok to completely hide some
interface elements and only reveal them on rollover. I don't mean
disable or dim them in a normal state and then make them obviously
available on a rollover state, I mean make them magically appear out
of nowhere when the user mouses over a specific area.

search, results, refine


Does anyone have examples of a search interface where the user can conduct a
broad search, then continue to refine the search by filtering and sorting,
or modify the search or begin a new search.

I am interested in cases where the date/time ranges are involved.

On a related note - is it good practice to let users conduct a broad search
or limit the initial search and then have the user refine the search using
additional properties?

Do end users understand the concepts of filtering and sorting?
When is the result set too large for the user to make the next choice (in
this context) ?
