Once other issues in edit have been addressed we can implement this part of the design which is less obtrusive and keeps the user in context.
This is part of the design which has already been prototyped and tested.
I have no idea what this means. Can you clarify?
Currently in edit clicking away with unsaved changes opens a small modal dialog. In the prototype we tested there's no modal, the error appears right inside the toolbar itself.
#2: I see. Can you remind me/show me how to get those validation errors to show up inside the entity toolbar? The prototype lives at http://www.acquians.info/Public/Edit/spark/blocks/index.html.
How is that "validation"? That's merely stating the number of fields that will be saved once you hit the "Save" button. I don't see at all how that deals with potentially lengthy (and numerous) validation error messages?
Right. I have designs for those cases. I will get them and add here.
We now have designs for this: http://invis.io/QBH9N85K.
We're not yet taking this on, it seems it needs more refinement.
Really not sure what this was postponed on. Generally things that need more refinement are active. Unless there's another issue that this is waiting on.
It's been over a year though, worth pushing it to 8.1?
This is basically an improved UX for Quick Edit.
Think all 8.1 are to be tagged postponed for now.
You're right — thanks!
