"Ignore columns" let you select columns to include 🧠


Here is what I believe is a UX bug.

In the CSV importer, when you click on “Ignore columns” you are presented with a list of columns TO INCLUDE. That is really confusing. Should I fill a bug @Marie @Emily_Roman ?

Hi @Bastien_Siebman,

I believe this is intended - If you select this option you can ignore some or all of the columns, giving you more flexibility than including or ignoring all columns!

I know, I am challenging the wording. “Ignore columns” → I expect to select what to ignore, not what to show…

@Bastien_Siebman makes a valid point with the naming. However, I do appreciate the way it is. I would prefer to see a count of columns ignored vs included (which isn’t shown in Bastien’s example because all columns were used, but see below). The fact that the subtext states: “select columns to import” should clear up any confusion.

Columns Ignored

Oh, I see! Sorry I missed your point in the first place! I agree with Jerod though, the select columns to import should clear up any confusion :slight_smile:

Still not convinced but that’s fine. Have a nice weekend everyone! :wave:

@Marie and @Bastien_Siebman,

I suggest the team consider this simple UX change:

  • Instead of menu label Ignore columns use Select columns
  • Instead of menu label 3 columns ignored use 6 of 9 columns selected
