Microinteractions: Better Design for Better UX

page title border

Have you ever clicked a button to submit a form and wondered…is anything happening? Did that work, or did I just lose all my info? That’s a classic example of inadequate design, and a scenario where a “microinteractions” can drastically improve the user experience.

A microinteraction is a website element that gives instant, helpful feedback to a user, to facilitate a task and clarify what’s happening. So in the instance above, the “submit” button could change color, display a “processing” message or icon, and then confirm when the form submission is a success. It’s a relatively simple addition that raises your website’s UX to the next level.

Other types of microinteractions include, tooltips, rollover icons, and clickable dialogue bubbles that appear when the user highlights text on your site. Any helpful feedback that you provide to help users complete a task on your site will increase engagement, reduce frustration, and ultimately lead to a higher conversion rate.
