Usability: Manage Search (Re-index)
Last modified: 2012-11-29 18:27:15 EST
Re-index full text search database feature
- should have an option to select all
- should explain options (Purge index, Reindex, Optimize)
Also, Class should probably be renamed to Table. (It's both, but Table is probably easier to explain.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Zanata version 1.6.0-beta-2-SNAPSHOT (20120530-0019)
One other thing: The button "Re-index full text search database" should be renamed, because the action taken depends on which check-boxes in the table have been selected. (And it does nothing if none are selected.)
Perhaps we should grey out the existing button until something has been selected, call it something like Perform Selected Actions, and add another button which does everything, eg "Perform All Actions (SLOW)".
Workaround: until a select-all button is added, some may find using Tab and Space easier than mouse clicks. The first checkbox can be focused by clicking in the project search box and pressing Tab twice.
Should also have option to abort an in-progress operation.
Updated button to read "Perform Selected Actions", changed "Class" to "Table" and added tooltips to checkboxes, including warnings about memory use, time, etc.
Added remaining enhancements:
- shows elapsed time
- shows estimated remaining time
- increased progress bar size
- "Select All" and "Clear Selection" buttons
- shows currently processing class name
- "Abort" button
If there is an error or the operation is aborted, progress indicator and currently processing class name remain visible to provide information about the partially complete process.
VERIFIED with Zanata version 1.7.0-alpha-2-SNAPSHOT (20120723-0951)
and Zanata version 1.6.2-SNAPSHOT (20120723-0001)
