Submit button hidden inside Filter View button

I have always thought it very un-intuitive to have the submit button hidden inside the "filter view" button. Is there an easy way to set it free and make it easier for my clients to find it?

Re: Submit button hidden inside Filter View button

I second this request!

Just having the SUBMIT text on the top-most button would help a lot of my clients, but I don't really understand how to implement this option. I've gotten a lot of "That submit button was not very intuitive" feedback from my own clients.

Re: Submit button hidden inside Filter View button

For now, the best thing to do is to include instructions in the gallery text

Ah, dang. That's exactly what I've been doing.

Re: Submit button hidden inside Filter View button

It may be possible to move that button with jQuery

Re: Submit button hidden inside Filter View button

If you have any suggestions, I'd love to give that a try. Paired up with my other thread, the goal is to have two buttons- one at the top left and one at the top right of the proofing page: one button with the gallery help text and this one that says submit choices or something similar.

I'd still use the gallery text to remind them to click on the "submit choices" button once they've made their choices, but I think the problem is that some people assume the button is merely an image counter; I think giving that button text would alleviate this confusion.

How to do this with jquery, though...

Re: Submit button hidden inside Filter View button

I'll give it some thought. I think it can be removed or detached with jQuery and moved outside of its current home. But I'll have to find the time to experiment with that.
One issue is space considerations on small devices. Too many buttons in the top pallet and pretty soon things start looking ugly.

Re: Submit button hidden inside Filter View button

Agreed; that's why I'm only wanting to have two: No logos, titles or anything else up there besides a persistent pair of uber-simple buttons.

All the confusion has come from mobile users, in fact!

They tell me they just didn't think of that counter/button as anything but a counter, so my thought was to have the two buttons on the top/outermost corners (so they stay as much out of the way as possible) while also following the user down the page.

The next thing I need to figure out is a way to have the browser ask "are you sure you want to leave? you haven't submitted your choices!" if people still don't understand that last, crucial step.

Could be a good feature to have, maybe Ben or Matt will jump in with a comment.

With managed albums, if the client leaves without submitting feedback, the feedback is still stored in the database so that when they log in again, they can pick up where they left off.
And even if they haven't submitted feedback, you can view what they've chosen since it's all stored in the database.
