We’re making more UI improvements!  If you browse through any area on SCN, you’ll notice that the answered and unanswered discussion thread icons are now in color, making them distinctly visible. You can  see the status of a discussion at a single glance, which greatly improves scanability of pages/lists.

This change is reflected throughout SCN; in content lists, space overview pages, activity feeds, communications feeds, etc.

The answered discussion is  labelled with a green checkmark.

/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/unanswered_icon_235133.jpgThe unanswered discussion is labelled with a blue question mark.

As my colleague Audrey Stevenson pointed out, “This is definitely a case where form follows function…”  which (essentially) means the UI design is based on the functional needs.

We’ve heard this topic discussed in various places in the community as well, including idea submissions in Idea Place (so thank you Firefighter, Ludek Uher, and Thomas Black for your Idea Place requests!). 

We heard you, and hope you find the improvements helpful πŸ™‚

Cheers,

Jodi

    Hi,

    Now is very east to find answered and unanswered questions.

    Is it possible to differentiate whether closed by “Assumed answer” or Correct answer?

    Thanks for improvement.

    Regards,

    Other than on this blog page, where is this documented? I know, it should be obvious what it means.

    Also, was any user experience testing done for those who may be color-blind?

      Well…my blog IS the documentation.  We may have something more comprehensive coming later, so I will forward your inquiry to the relevant people.
