Inconsistency between creating a task and editing a task


Posted: Jul 20, 2009

When you create a task and when you edit a task, there are annoying inconsistencies/differences in the interface:
a) title "Add Task" vs. "Edit Title"
b) "Cancel" button top-left and big "Save task and edit details" button vs. "Task Details" button top-left
c) a big "Save task and edit details" button vs. no button

I know you're trying to be helpful in making some great big distinction between creating a task, and editing an existing task. My advice: don't! When, for example, I create a document in MS Word, there is absolutely ZERO difference in the interface between whether I am editing a brand new document or editing existing content. That's how it should be with creating/editing a task.

In BOTH case I think the interface should be as follows:
- title always says "Edit Title" (or always "Edit Task")
- just always a "Cancel" button and a "Save button at the top
- NO additional redundant "Save task and edit details" button
