Default cursor location on Member List

Postby showseason » Tue Aug 07, 2012 8:24 am

Sorry if previously covered but could not find anything.

I use the member list a lot and it would be nice if the cursor defaulted to Find member in list: location, instead of having to click there and wait for it to appear (which seems a but slow already).

What system/browser are you using? On my desktop system (W XP and FF/IE8) the cursor is not automatically positioned anywhere. As I mouse over the menu bar items the menu item list drops down and I have to move the cursor to a drop-down menu item in order to click-select. There is a yellow highlight that appears over "Request Records" but I see no functionality of that highlight. Until the mouse pointer is actually moved over a drop-down menu item there is no click-select possible.

I am using Chrome but have tried IE too. In Clerk's Resources I select the Membership and then Members List in the drop down menu. The Members List comes up but the cursor is no where to be found until I click on the space following Find Member in list. The field becomes active and then I can start entering a name. Since that is the only field I usually use, it would be nice to have it active when first getting into the form. A little thing I know but it bugs me.

One option with Chrome would be to write a simple user script that puts the focus there for you.

I second that. It seems intuitive that the cursor should be in the field by default so that you can immediately start typing a name. Same issue with Firefox as with IE and Chrome. Little things like that can add up when you use the site frequently. Going to Membership>MemberList is done very frequently. I submitted this suggestion via Submit Feedback link on the lower left of the Clerk Resources page. Seems small, but should also be easy to fix, and would be appreciated.
