Web Usability blog hits the nail on error messagesOctober 1st, 2009 | Posted by in sharepoint | usability
Not only true for all kinds of websites and client apps, but just the same in SharePoint..My customer doesn’t want a fat-ass code page telling him in a bizarre language that something is wrong..some SharePoint errors are just downright scary!!
So please, do your user a favor and do something about your error pages!!!
Some suggestions Els gives:
– use the language of the form
– be specific
– dont blame the user
– avoid spelling errors
