Having just cloned a site + group, I find the visual styling of the completion message a bit confusing:

1. The links to the new site and group appear in a green box, where dark green words appear over a light green background. I wonder whether this meets accessibility contrast guidelines, and I wonder whether we should style it a bit differently to make it clearer that those are the links to the group/site one just created

2. Because of the contrast issues above, the eye is drawn to the "checklist" link. I think it's good to share this link, but I think it's a bit confusing to be taken in to the help section rather than the groups the user just created.

To remedy this, I would suggest restyling so that the emphasis is on the links to the group/site just created, with the link to the help documentation made a bit less prominent.

To mark completion, we may want to reuse the checkmark we show following a successful sent invite to a group. Doing something like that would allow us to put the links to the new group/site against a white background, but I'll leave it to Sara to think about design

  • Category name set to Group cloning
  • Assignee changed from Boone Gorges to Sara Cannon
  • Target version set to Future release

Assigning this to Sara for review. The "success" landing screen design is shared with site creation, so we may want to rethink them at once.
