Changing mode - panel stays open

sflamm 10 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 10 months ago 3

When clicking on the "Mode" tile to change mode - a menu opens to select the mode but the menu does NOT automatically close after selecting the mode.  Requires the user to actively click the "x" to close

This is by design and not a bug.


All slide-up drawers (dimmer, color, routine list, mode list) stay open so that if the wrong choice is made, the correct choice can be immediately made without re-invoking the drawer.


The drawer can be closed/dismissed with "X", or it will timeout after 30 seconds.


I admit that the auto dismiss duration for "simple" drawers (routine and mode selection are simple, vs dim level and color are more complex) is probably a bit long.

From a usability perspective - this is unexpected.  It would be best to make the selection and close the drawer automatically.  It is quite easy to open again and change selection if you made a mistake (that is the 1 % case - the 99% case is the user picked the proper selection)
