- did you try to write
(edit goal) instead of the icon? otherwise it may feel like "icons overload" (it was discussed in issue)
Yes I tried and it looked weird and overloaded. In the issue there are no reasons given why not to use icons, maybe there's another issue somewhere where it's discussed?
it doesnt look awesome, but it's a small part of the app, and it's a useful shortcut to let users edit goals, so +1
maybe others have suggestions?
I think some text would be useful, otherwise I wouldn't assume the icon is for editing goal, so much as editing for the header text.
I'll work on a solution with a text link + a screenshot
Nice goal, btw :)
Comparing the 2 options:
Any other idea?
Not sure how it would look, but maybe a right aligned link that says
(edit goal) or
(edit goal details)?
Aligned to the right of the screen? Here the screenshot is truncated but on a large screen it would be really far from the title (all alone on the right).
That's what I was thinking of (far to the right). This may not apply to others, but associating an edit link with the title for goal reports, rather than something directly related to the goal seems odd to me. I'm not a UX expert though.
<small>ed and surrounded with () and left aligned? Just spitballing here.
What about the suggestion of @Bugsbane in https://github.com/piwik/piwik/issues/7345#issuecomment-90761253 . He suggested to add a menu link "Manage Goals" before "Add a new Goal". Reckon this would be most clear and visible.

+1 - not sure why we didn't do it in the first place
OK closing this then
