In continuity of our series of “Inexpensive Usability”, in this version, we have added some more scenarios that could enable a web page to be more user friendly without additional effort on the development side.

Scenario 5 – Too Many Text Fields: When there are many form fields to fill, and if whether the fields are mandatory or not is not mentioned then clearly it could discourage the users to fill the data and user may not opt for form filling process.

Scenario 6 – Reduce Menu Clicks: While accessing the menus, users will have to first click on the main menu to view the sub-menu and then the second click will be on the sub-menu to select an item.

Scenario 7

 Quick Scroll Top - When the web pages has more content, users has to scroll down to view the content but in case the menu options or links to other pages are not displayed at the bottom of the page then user will have again scroll at the top to view and access the menus/links.


Our inexpensive approach - Just add a "go to top" button or an upward direction "arrow" image at the bottom of the web page near the vertical scroll bar.


We have applied our learning and added in our standard user interface checklist that we refer during the development of every screen as a part of our development process. Overall not only did it help to increase the users experience but it saved development efforts, it resulted in the reduction of support calls. Most importantly, such simple know-how and process increased users experience without impacting the development cost thus making usability inexpensive.
