Project: "File replacement"
Think about the situation when you drag some file (let’s say a photo) to a folder and you see the message that this item already exists inthis location.
What are our options?
We can replace the file or we can “stop” the action > go to the file > type a new name.
What if we could all that in one place? Here is my idea how we could do that.
We drag the file and the system shows us a panel where all these options are given to us in one place.
So, we can:
1. See which file
2. Replace the file or
3. Choose from suggested new names or
4. Type a new name and save the file.
Therefore you don’t have to go back, you keep moving forward withsome options.
I began with axure program; I developed some solutions how this panel might look. However, during the visualization, I have changed the design and combined all elements in a horizontal panel first, then in a vertical one, which I decided works and looks better.
To show how this feature can work I made a video (prototype of the functionality and visual aesthetics.)
