Progressive disclosure


At the point where the end-user interacts with the Product outcomes, show them only the initial features and/or information necessary at that point in the interaction (thus initially hiding more advanced interface controls). Show the secondary features and/or information only when the user requests it (show less, provide more-principle).


To greatly reduce unwanted complexity for the end-user and thus preventing (a) end-user non-adoption or misunderstanding and (b) ensuring an increased feeling of trust by the users.
