@Prtksxna Are we likely to add a help link to this page, and if so, does that affect these buttons? (Help links are added top right)

Oh yeah, that is something to consider, thanks for pointing it out. This page probably would need a help link eventually. I am working on some changes to the layout of the header section and will get back to this once that is done.

Should the button be in title case? i.e. "New Investigation" instead of "New investigation" ? I expected the former, but the screenshot has the latter.

Oh, thanks for bringing this up. I always thought we do sentence case for buttons too (see Special:Preferences). Do you know of places where we are using title? I'll ask other designers too.

Not that I can think of now that I can think of it. It felt like an incomplete sentence so I assumed it was a title. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Looks like:

Link goes to Special:Investigate (rather than back to the current investigation).

Hmm, that's a good catch @dom_walden. I am unsure what the desired outcome should be if there is an ongoing investigation. I suspect users would not switch over to the logs in the middle of an investigation.
Let's roll with this and rethink if we hear otherwise.
