IBM Verse UI challenges :: Icons

by Volker Weber

Verse has lots of tiny icons. Some of them aren't obvious. Thankfully you can hover over them and learn what they do. I am still trying to find the icon for "Empty Trash". Has anybody been able to spot it?

Is that an umbrella icon for "Out of Office"?

It appears to be.

Volker Weber, 2015-05-23

IBM, well.... Lotus was always great in inventing non-standard icons, were not they?

IBM: Think
Apple: Think Different

It is not an umbrella.
It is a sun shade, because you might be on the beach during your holiday.

If it has to be explained, it has been done wrong.

Sunglasses would have been a better choice

@Thorsten: Sunglasses? The future is not _that_ bright...

I have posted a few of my own thoughts about this -> http://domino.elfworld.org/whither-ibm-part-1/

Hogne, I can assure you that IBM is completely deaf to this kind of feedback. I mean, you don't understand. That should be clear, right?

Volker Weber, 2015-05-26

@Volker: It seems IBM Norway isn't deaf. I'm currently at the Norwegian IBM User Goup meeting (ISBG) and a couple of IBM Norway's people were not amused.

So, they came up to me and offered me the chance to test IBM Verse with my job email so that I could actually do a full scale test with all the analytics IBM promises via Verse.

I think that was a nice move on their part. I'll do a blog post after testing that for a while.

BTW, Part 2 will be up sometime today.

that is not an umbrella, that is a mushroom
