As I wasn`t sure about a couple of things, we had a little team discussion
about that topic today.
Tabs are usually used to symbolize that things are equally important or
independent from each other.
But in our case "user authentication" and "default user settings" are
that semantically belong to the user tab.
So, I would not advise to extract them from there.
* filter box
Why don`t we just put the label with the short cut above the combo box?
(I am still not sure, if I understood you correctly, maybe we should just have
a little phone call next Wednesday?)
Basically, I would suggest to stick with the mock up proposed in comment #6.
It shows at a first glance the two most important tasks the user can
users and groups.
login settings, password encryption, authentication settings and defaults for
new users would be hidden in an expert button within the user settings tab.
This would make semantically sense and wouldn`t hurt the user too much as he
doesn`t change these settings as frequently as user and group settings.
If you like to we can discuss this issue next week via phone because it might
be sometimes quicker and less frustrating :-)
Why would it make sense to you to put "authentication settings" and
user settings" into extra tabs?
