Tappable/Clickable things should look tappable/clickable #2379

Expected behaviour

All interactive elements need minimum 2 unique visual/semantic clues that differentiate them from normal text on mobile (i.e. hover states don't count because they only work on desktop). This can take many forms, including colour change (e.g. "link blue", font weight, font styling, appending graphical elements like chevrons and/or icons).

This is an endemic usability/accessibility problem in platform.

Actual behaviour

^^ How can you tell which things are clickable and which aren't?

^^How do I select the category? The yellow button? The checkbox? the card background? the text? In this case, many test participants actually delete the category by accident because it's the only thing that looks tappable on the page that isn't the yellow FAB.


We need to:

  • decide what visual cues we want to use to signal "clickable" in platform generally
  • refactor link styles
  • refactor clickable header styles
  • find and replace every other offending interactive element.
