As the title says, I’m looking for best practices or guidelines on how to design highly configurable web applications.
We’re currently doing a complete redesign of our HR application and there isn’t a single screen without discussion about the issue of configurations possibilities. Customers love that they can tailor our platform to their needs; in fact it’s one of our main selling points. But how can you ensure an aesthetically pleasing layout when you don’t know the number of buttons that will be displayed, or how many options will be available. Or how complex the search masks will be…you get the idea.
Examples for configuration possibilites are:
- QuickActions (one button per action)
- QuickFilters (checkboxes that activate a set of filters tailored to your needs)
- labels and images
- visibility of certain functions or contents
Our current strategy is to make sure that the default configuration looks and feels good and we even validate our designs through user testing. However, since the possibilities of configuration are nearly endless, we can’t possibly test for all cases. We try to take extremes or corner cases into account but for “badly” or overly configured pages, we can’t ensure that the layout will still be alright.
Are there any best practices or design guidelines about how to ensure a minimum amount of usability and aesthetic? How are you coping with that kind of “fuzzyness” in your layout? Any experiences or ressources are highly appreciated!
I would like to know if it possible to test individual applications for TLS 1.2 compatibility. I understand the quickest way around this is by making a change in the system’s registry but I would like to know if I can use a tool to test the compatibility. Thanks.
I’m not exactly sure what’s going on here.
In chrome. Supposed to say “office360”

I’m new to linux systems. I’ve just heard that they are good and stable and I need them for some web and android application developments. But as I installed an Ubuntu 19 some weird and stupid things happens. Sometimes the settings (which should be the critical part of every OS) disappears (probably after removing of some other applications) and I’m forced to reinstall the whole ubuntu desktop according to this.
Then after I do that, the software I had installed such as Android Studio or Pycharm are also has disapreaed and I am forced to reinstall them.
This is really disappointing. Is it a common behavior of all linux stuffs or is it for Ubuntu 19? Can it be solved if I have installed 18! By the way I couldn’t install 18 because it showed wiered error on installing from USB, such as the \cdrom must be unmount….
I am trying to access my Sharepoint files through my office applications but once I try to open it it gives me a blank file explorer windows with nothing on it.
I have checked the permissions for the folder from the hierarchy accordingly but I still cannot see any of the folder contents if I try to access them from Office applications like word and powerpoint that I mostly use.
Can someone give me some help please?
i cloned a spfx project from https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-webparts/tree/master/samples/react-yammer-api and it basicaly search for a name of the user in yammer and return some informations about it. I was able to execute and query yammer rest api just fine, but then i went to my yammer user profile settings and i revoke the access to the application that i registered.
And now i cannot get the users using the rest api anymore. Always that i make a request its return 401 error.
We need to login to 20 – 30 different web applications and enter credentials to keep user active throughout the day. This needs to happen in the background on user’s machine without user being interrupted. What technology do we use here to achieve this?
We thought of using an RPA but this is intrusive and causes user interruption. User will be locked out of using their machine while RPA is running.
We expect this automated code to login to multiple web application one at a time or in a parallel thread (no preference) throughout the day on a schedule or user can kick this off. This automated solution needs to be able to hold user credentials and keep user free from entering their credentials.
Can we use C#, vbscript, java or any other software development tool to achieve this type of effort?
We’d like to keep this in-house to keep cost low.
I added an ec2 instance (ubuntu server) in aws, installed python3.7, virtualenvs, pointed ec2’s elastic ip to a subdomain, entered virtualenvs and made a webapp to run the web application. How do I run runserver.py by accessing sub.dominio.com ?
/ubuntu/ |── webapp/ | └── runserver.py (wsgiref) |──.virtualenvs
Is it possible somehow to separate the icons for favourite apps and open apps?
Right now I have them all in the vertical taskbar to the left, so it happens very often that I want to switch app and instead click on a closed app, and it’s a huge hassle to wait for it to open and close.
I don’t want to get rid of favourites completely, but it would be nice if there was a setup to keep them in separate places on the screen, or maybe let the open apps icons float to the top of the bar, so that they are not so easily misclicked.
I’m new here and this is my first post, so bare with me.
I have a unsolved sound problem in ubuntu 18.04. It seems as if the hardware works fine since the speakers make a sound when I draw and drop the volume slider. All though, no sound works in any of the applications such as spotify or firefix. I also tried the “test sound”-function under settings but it doesnt make any sound.
If you need any more info, please tell me how to get it and Ill get back and edit this post. Really thankful for your help.
