Two UI Design Tips of the week

Tip #1

Sharing tips in context or educating your users is a great way to keep them informed of more features your users might need or use. Always give them a option to skip as they don't necessarily want to understand the software once they've started to use it.

Give your users choice to skip when required. UI Source: Adobe Spectrum

Tip #2

In Complex and information heavy websites, apps or software it would help the users to navigate back to where they came from in a single click. Offer breadcrumb UI pattern where possible so they can quickly jump between pages.

Notion is a great example of this โ†“
