Replace subaccount applications filter icon with text

Post by jas8522 » Wed Feb 11, 2015 4:14 pm

Hi there,

Normally I'm a fan of icons as they tend to look nicer and prevent the need for immediately visible localization text.

However in the case of Installatron's filter option for toggling the display of owned account applications (ie: applications owned by customers as well as the parent account) in Plesk, we often get support requests from people unable to find their applications. We have also occasionally forgot about the toggle and wondered what happened to certain installs.

I'm wondering if perhaps that option shouldn't be an icon and instead be text with a checkbox. Or perhaps when the setting is disabled and its only showing my applications a bar could appear that warns the user that their client's applications are currently hidden and points them to that button to unhide them.

Anything that might help avoid the confusion about where those apps went!

Thanks for the consideration!

Given the way Plesk works I agree it might make sense to simply get rid of this button for Plesk.

We're looking at a couple options to address this for one of the next releases.
