Hi Lisa,

Could you clarify the intent?

Is the intent that people should be able to:

  1.  Go back steps in a process and (only when going back) make changes to the data.
  2.  Go back steps in a process and (regardless of whether they were going back) make changes to data?

If it is 1, I think we can simplify, if it is 2 then I think we need to split the needs (even in the same SC) as the exceptions don’t make sense for 2.

Subject: new wording for Undo


I am trying to draft new wording for undo based on Alastair's suggestion from the call, and incorporating Alex's comments

Can you let me know what you think and if there are further problems?
New wording:

UNDO: Users can undo actions, return to the previous context and correct data entry without loss of non-dependent data except when:

  *   allowing the user to undo an action or maintaining data may cause harm such as adding risk to the user privacy or security;
  *   the user has confirmed an action;
  *   allowing the user to undo an action may interfere with the essential function of the content;
  *   the action can no longer be controlled by the site;
  *   the user has been idle for 24 hours.

All the best
