Related to the “no arbitrary rules for clicks” discussion, I’m interested in
recommendations for the optimal number of choices to offer users in a wizard
or web app. At what point do we stop being helpful and start overwhelming
their ability to choose?
For example, to guide users to a solution for “How can I reduce global
First level choices:
Make different transportation choices
Change your buying habits
Modify your home
Influence your government
Second level for user who picked transportation choices in #1:
Ride a Bike
Plan errands to minimize the number of trips
Any ideal # of choices to offer? Is there an ideal # of words per choice?
