I need a good UX design that enables changing configuration on both admin and user levels

I’m working at a company hosting several web-applications and mobile apps that enable the customer to show, modify and analyse their own data. Customers might have multiple user accounts per customer. Quite some customers only have one user account as well though.

Some settings should be configurable for all users of the customer at once, but some settings need the ability to be overridden for some users. Some settings also need overrides for specific applications only, or users only. Users with administrator rights should have the ability to change settings on customer level and should be able to restrict the configurability of some settings for others.

So the matrix of configurability for each settings is ‘customer’ and ‘user’, on the one axis and ‘all applications’ and ‘specific application’ on the other axis.

How do I design my interface in such a way that the user knows how to find and alter settings (if authorized) and understands what the scope of these settings are?

Docking station that supports both USB-C windows laptops and current Touch Bar MacBook Pros for Dual display output

I have been asked to look into docking station solutions for a dual 27-inch display setup, that supports both current generation Touch Bar MacBook Pros, USB-c windows laptops (lennevo thinkpads)and older retina MacBook Pros.

There are two issues here:

1 Current Touch Bar MacBook Pros dont support dual display output over USB-c but use thunderbolt instead so very few docking stations work for both windows usb-c and Mac usb-c for dual displays.

2 Older MacBook Pros don’t have usb-c and would need a different solution.

So I guess I wonder if there is a docking station that supports both windows and Mac dual display output over USBC, and if its possible to have an extra adapter for older MacBook Pros

Looking all over amazon and this form there doesn’t seem to be one?

Is there another solution perhaps with smaller individual dongles ?

So what solution allows for the most mobility for the workforce with a broad range of devices. Ideal solution is that an employee with any of the above devices (older MBP, new MBP or Thinkpad) can sit down at any terminal and power two displays straight away.

I know the question is a little similar to some others but I think the problem is unique.

Are there spells that heal both me and my allies based on the damage dealt to our enemies?

I would like to create a character in D&D 5e similar to World of Warcraft’s Shadow Priest. Specifically one aspect of the Shadow Priest; when he does damage, it heals other players nearby.

I was planning to create a Death Cleric to achieve this and use vampiric touch, but it heals only me. Is there a possibility to link others to me so they would get same amount of healing?

How to delete conversation with someone on facebook, both from my inbox and from his inbox?

I have a conversation with someone on facebook that contains some sensible information that that person could use to harm me. What should I do to delete that conversation from both my inbox and from his inbox.

As far as I know, the delete option in facebook only works for my inbox. That means that the messages I delete, still remain in that person’s inbox.

What options do I have?

Allowing both hover and select state on a section / component

Do you think allowing both hover and select on a component makes sense in the bellow context?

  • The tool is a drag & drop application builder (UI builder).

  • Configuring objects (sections in the page or components such as buttons, checkboxes, inputs, etc) is done by first selecting the object in the page.

  • The user can always select another object or multiple by also clicking on Command.

  • Each object also has a hover state

I was thinking that once something is selected it doesn’t make sense to have the hover state anymore, as hover is an indicator that it can be selected/interacted with. (once selected objects can also be dragged and repositioned in the layout)

Would you approach this differently?
