Section-level images: Add caption help
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

User story:

As a new editor adding a caption, I want to receive help if I click/tap on the ? icon, because writing captions is difficult.

Update the caption help message for section image tasks.

Design:

Figma design

Triggered by tapping the help icon for the caption input field.
The same content as the caption onboarding is reused, without the guided help style and “don’t show again” footer.

Header:

Write a caption to go with the image in the article section

Body:

Readers of <article title> will see the caption displayed under the image.

  • Review the image details again for information that is relevant to include.
  • Describe the image so it’s clear how it relates to the <article title> article and its <section title> section.
  • Stay neutral by avoiding judgments like “good”, “ugly”, or “beautiful”.
  • Write in this article's language: <language>.

Should we move this to the post-MVP stage, given that it's more of a design update and not really related to the section image task type?

I'm all for simplifying as much as we can for the initial release!

Would it be minimal work if we simply update the copy, but used the same design as the Article-level task?

Or are you suggesting we actually remove the help icon from the caption field for the initial release?

Oh right, I didn't notice the copy is different. Yes, that's minimal work.

I updated the description to be about changing the copy and created T337403: Image recommendations: Update caption help design for the design changes. Let me know if I misunderstood something.

Sounds good. And thanks for suggesting a way for us to simplify and move faster, and for noticing the conflicting requirements in T337403.
