Hello,

The following "thingy" (trying to use a general term here :) ), is part of a web application...it is just one portion of a screen with many components.

What do you call this portion of a web app?
What would you call it in technical documentation?
The Add Targeting ______?
Form?
Panel?
Area?
<Something else>?

Thanks,
Steve

PS- I realize the answer to this post may be subjective! :)

Steve,
The thingy seems to be a Filter. Regards, Joe

Joe,
Are you saying you think the "thingy" is used to filter data? What part of it leads you in that direction?

From what I understand of the application (it's from Google) it's not so much a filter, but just one component of a lengthy setup process. Thanks.

> What part of it leads you in that direction?

The box above it says "Type to filter items" and the word "included" is next to "Ad units", which leads to me think the "Ad units" filter is "included" in the Browse or Search.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Seems like it would be most appropriately defined as a Section or Option, it really depends on how you arrive to it.

@Joe, I believe the user wants to know what the overall "Add targeting" component would be called from a workflow perspective.

In general, this is a component (user control or otherwise) but from a workflow perspective (e.g. - creating a document instructing users in the details of navigating to the component), this may be considered a section or option (if it is an option as a part of a larger section).

@Joe-My bad. I totally missed the references to "filter". Guess I've looked at this "thingy" one too many times...couldn't see the forest for the trees...

@It_Saige. Yes, I like "section". I will go with that in my documentation.

Thanks to you both.

Ah, I didn't even look at that. I focused on "Placements" because you outlined that in green. In terms of the entire "Add targeting" thingy, I think that "section" is a good choice. Regards, Joe

Yeah, the green outline was from a screenshot in a doc I'm writing that instructs the user to click "Placements".  Thanks. Guess I should have removed that for this EE post....

Also, as I went through the doc, I should admit that I found instances of the word "section" that referred to not a portion of a screen, but a section of the document

Fortunately, there were only two or three, so I qualified them by writing "section of this document." :)

Thanks! Don't you love it when the same word in the English language has multiple meanings? ;)
