UX guidelines

The verification checklist shows the steps for manually verifying that the form complies with UX guidelines. This checklist doesn't include any guidelines that will be enforced automatically through the development environment. Open the form in the browser, and walk through these steps.

  • The filter field should have a drop-down that contains the list of available values.
  • The expectation is that the filter field will be modified multiple times per day by the target user. If the filter field is modified less often or is primarily static, it should be put in a configuration dialog.
  • If more filter fields are needed, they should be put in a configuration dialog (up to five filter fields).

Examples
