Description

Some colleagues provided some feedback about the naming of the buttons in dialogs which are used to apply changes.

For instance:

  • on the pools page, when editing a pool, the button to apply the changes is named "Edit Pool"
  • on the RBD image page, when editing an image, the button to apply the changes is named "Edit RBD"

The feedback was, that "Edit" is the action the user is already performing on the dialog forms and a simple "Save" (likely also "Apply") would suffice here as it is commonly used. It also would be less ambiguous as "Edit Pool" suggests an action that is already ongoing. The third option to label the button might be "Done".

Patrick, you may find more context on this discussion here: https://tracker.ceph.com/issues/37337#note-9

That said, I'be also in favor of having "Apply/Submit/Update" vs "Edit".

Sorry for the slow reply (I didn't see this until today).

+1 on the recommendations of going with "Edit Pool," "Edit RBD," and "Save" (or "Apply") which is clearer to users.
