Title: Save and Cancel buttons on new product or edit product page
Post by: buddahboy on October 30, 2013, 05:31:47 PM
Greetings - it may be a good option to have the "save" and "cancel" buttons on the new or edit product page also at the top of the page and not just at the bottom. 

Thank you
Ron

I think it is a good idea. Thank you for this suggestion.

... and also near the product Description field if possible.
(quick save buttons work faster and good for edits)

I'm dredging this topic back up to the top, as it appears it was never implemented.

Given the height/length of the product edit page, having the Save/Cancel buttons at the top of the page in addition to the bottom of the page is a necessity.

Can this be manually changed easily, or is it too involved of a change?

Thank you.

AbanteCart has a quick save feature now. If you create incomplete product and start editing it, you can save each field individually.
If user is creating a new product entirely, normally, he/she fills fields from top to bottom.

It is easy to add an extra buttons at the top, I just think it will be too much for majority of users.

Let's see more opinions.

Yes, but if you are only using a subset of the available fields (depending on the merchandise you sell), you may find yourself done with data entry and still towards the top of the page.

Regardless, best usability practices recommend that on lengthy data entry pages, you have save buttons at both top and bottom of the page/screen/tab. You shouldn't have to scroll all the way down (or up) to execute a major function.

Thanks.

.. save buttons at both top and bottom of the page/screen/tab.

Agree, floating Save button will be even better.  ;)

I thought about that, but didn't want to suggest it as I thought it might be too difficult to implement effectively. That would be the best option IMO. Not essential, but nice to have. :)
