Confirm Dialog - Clear Pinned Assets

Comments

    Hi!

    When you say she deleted her pins, was she working in the web interface or one of the plugins? (office/adobe)

    A confirmation dialog would definitely be in order, no doubt about that. I'll add it as a proposed feature.

    That said, pins are mostly used to make temporary selections, so in future I would recommend going to the pins tab every so often and adding all your pins to an album. That's a safer way to store them!

    Hi Olav,

    She was working in the FotoWeb Pro interface. She's a new user and she was gathering images to download. She mistakenly thought the x button closes the Pin window.

    My users love to work with Pins because ist so fast and easy without a confirmation Dialog. Maybe the solution is to make a user based perference for that in the frontend.

    Yes, I agree pinning is much faster than albums for gathering images. I think the confirmation dialog should only be for clearing the users pinned assets "cart" not for pinning or unpinning individual assets.

    Hi, I think the real problem is this:

    > She mistakenly thought the x button closes the Pin window.

    Perhaps we should rather change the icon from an X to a trashcan?

    I think a trashcan icon is better than an x button. However, it might confuse some users into thinking that it's a file delete action. I still think a confirm dialog is the best solution unless there's an easy way for users to restore their pinned assets.

    Would a tooltip on the trashcan icon help to clarify what it does?

    We are concerned about a confirmation dialog making working with pins less efficient. Pins are designed for temporarily remembering assets to eventually do something with them later. For example, a user might do a couple of searches and pin assets on the way, then copy these assets to an album, then delete all pins and continue.

    Albums are designed for users to permanently remember a selection of assets. They also do not have a limit on the number of assets they can contain, have more features (such as sharing), and can be restored if accidentally deleted.

    Yes, a trashcan icon with a tooltip that says "Unpin all assets" would be better.

    Thanks,

    Chris
