Description Nico Gulden univentionstaff 2017-12-07 13:07:13 CET
Currently the buttons for installation and buy of an app have a static label. For a better call to action towards users we should add the possibility to define alternative labels for the two buttons in the app's .ini file.

A label could for example be "Install Community Edition" and "Buy Enterprise Edition".

There is feedback that visitors of the UMC do not know what they get with the click action. In some cases the app description says something about it. A customizable button label would make it more explicit and increase the usability.

But even after the customer bought the "Enterprise Edition", the label would still be named "Install Community Edition"...

This would lead to more confusion, I suppose. Putting it in the ini does not really solve the problem here. The App Center would have to know about the purchase status of various editions (and whether buying one allows to install this edition on another server as well, and so on...) to correctly label the buttons.

Yes, true. I didn't think about this one. This makes it indeed more complicated. In the worst case the effort for this would outnumber the value.

Maybe, we should think about a status dependent label for the buttons to better guide the users and show them the options. Probably in connection with the licensing status of apps.
