Issue/Introduction

When trying to add new tasks in a Timesheet, the Select Tasks option is not standing out to users and not being used due to it not having an icon

Steps to Reproduce: 

  1. Connect to Clarity - Modern UX Timesheets 
  2. Open a new or an existing Timesheet, click on Add Tasks 

Expected Results: Select Tasks option to also have an icon so it's more obvious to users they can actually select it. 

Actual Results: Select Tasks option has no icon and as such users are confused and do not think they can select it. 

Cause

This is a cosmetic usability issue that makes it hard for the end-user to 'discover' the functionality of selecting tasks to add to a timesheet. 

In Release 16.0.0, the 'Select Tasks' is positioned on the top of the action list which makes it easy think it is not an action. 

In Release 16.0.1: The position of 'Select Tasks' is at the bottom of the action menu and end-users still do not understand that this is a choice for an action.  

 

Environment

Release : 16.0.0, 16.0.1, 16.0.2

Resolution

This is DE64889, fixed in 16.0.3 

New icon is added in front of the 'Select Tasks' action.
