UI Tool Tips

This page is used to gather explanations for the POPFile UI that will be included as tooltips in POPFile itself. When complete, we will copy all of these to the The POPFile User Interface pages as well.

MB> Suggestion: I suggest we use this shortened version for the tooltips, but use Revision 44 for the Wiki. There is some good information that has been stripped out to make things short for tooltips–there is no need to be so terse in the wiki. <em>JC:I agree</em>

Instructions: include each item, end with a percent “%” this will allow for the text to be easily exported later. Everything that was blank “INTENIONALLY LEFT BLANK” will be empty in the POPFile UI.


History% View and reclassify email that POPFile has processed
Buckets% Manage buckets for POPFile to classify and browse classification statistics
Magnets% Manage simple filters that bypass the Bayesian filtering system
Administration% Configuration options
Users% User management
Advanced% Advanced configuration settings

Configuration: <em>(this tab is gone)</em>
Security: Control access to your POPFile <em>(this tab is gone)</em>


MB> These are shorter than “Sort by this column” and more accurate They are shorter, but require a seperate string for each column, when “Sort by this column” gives exactly the same information. And the colons don't make sense.MB> The colons actually came from Outlook–if you look at Outlook, MS uses exactly that toolip: e.g. “Sort by: Subject”–so I would beg to differ that they don't make sense. I think the word “header” is confusing–as not all users know what email headers are and may think you mean the column heading or some such. <em>Just because MS does it doesn't mean it makes sense. Looking at it as a short sentance a colon is not correct. If you had a dropdown that said “Sort by: Subject, CC, To, Date, etc.” it would make sense. Even if short by CC header is confusing to some people between the column header and the email header, in this case the result is the same. They are both the column header and the email header. I think just “Sort by this column” is better anyway. There isn't a real need to have a seperate string for each.</em>

Automatic Update Checking: There is text there–should we move it to a tooltip? no, for both of these it would be way too much text for a tooltip. And that is important stuff a user should be able to see automatically even though it does take up a lot of room.
