Closed, ResolvedPublic


On the labeling page there are two buttons: Abandon and Save. It is very unclear what Abandon does; it sounds like abandoning the workset.

Not sure about "Skip", but generally I agree that "Abandon" isn't the best language. Maybe we could be explicit about "Skip task" or "Abandon task".

That would work as long users understand what a task is (which I am not sure about). "Skip diff" would work well, assuming all tasks are diffs (and that the typical user is at least somewhat experienced and familiar with the wiki vocabulary).

All tasks are *not* diffs, so we can't be so specific.

Adding Contributors-UX-Research because it seems we're speculating about the problem and a good solution. I wonder if we could just ask some users.
