Dead simple button with self confirmation

While building an app, two months ago, I encountered the situation where I wanted to make users to confirm when trying to delete a record. The first thing that comes to mind is a little yes/no popup with a message: “Are you sure?”. But the kind of data to delete was, to my opinion, not enough important to build a whole popup + workflows for that action. Plus, it forces the user to redirect his attention to the message and yes/no buttons.

So instead I built a little button that ask for a second click to confirm the deletion. The button appears normal, but when clicked, it changes its aspect to make it clear it is waiting for a second click. And if the button becomes “un-hovered”, it resets to the first state.

No, workflow/custom states/plugin needed!

I thought I wouldn’t be the only one in need for this, so here’s a link to an example:
Bubble editor
Bubble preview


Hi @julienallard1,

I will also add, I implanted an additional key that after 5 seconds, the button returns to its original level. I also like the Google approach, a black banner for 6 seconds giving the choice to ‘undo’ the situation. The kind of integration that could be an integral part of Bubble.

And with additional options for Transitions, the workflows would be unnecessary.

These add ons would require workflows.
But I like the idea of the undo time-out à la Google.
