There is a part of the user workflow in the product I'm designing and having issues with.
The user is in a step where he needs to enter patient data in a modal window. Once finished, there are three things you might want to do:
- Enter the data of another patient
- just close
- close and fast forward to image capture
Here's the global workflow for this interaction:
In one use case, you may want to enter as much data as possible in a single session without continuing to capture the image. And so they would several times "save and add more" and then "save and close":
In the other case, if the patient is in front of the user, he or she wants to enter the required data and then continue imaging as fast as possible.
What I want to avoid as far as possible is that too many buttons are displayed (already three options + cancel the form). I also do not know which button should be displayed as primary. I do not want to risk the user losing what he should do after completing the form.
I have so far:
Here is an extreme example of another UI of what I want to avoid:
It seems to be a problem for users (you will find many tutorials if you are looking for "save and add another") with no clear solution. I've found related UX stack exchange questions (here and there) that do not address the specific question of whether to do several things after saving.
In the end, my question would be, is there any way to improve the user workflow by using a better UI solution?
