ACSP Suggestion 2016.2: Minor UI improvements to ARIN Online


Author: Anonymous   
Submitted On: 03 February 2016


Minor UI improvements to AOL functionality…

ARIN should review AOL for usability tweaks. There are several examples of low-hanging fruit such as: When one clicks the “Enter Tab” in POC management, it should focus the entry field rather than requiring the user to make an additional click in the field after the page reloads before they can start typing.

Value to Community: These minor improvements to repetitive steps will make the AOL interface more efficient and reduce user frustration.
