Description of problem: (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.)

Step 1: Make a change to settings (in this case, in licensing).

Step 2: Hit blue Save Settings button. Wait a little.

Step 3: Save Settings button is now grey. Text appears to the left: “Saved at 5:30 am”.

It is not 5:30 am. Nor is it 17:30. My computer might be off by a minute, but not more than that and it says the time is 17:36, EST (GMT -4).

end of bug report.

While we are at it, there are some accessibility and UX problems I have with the page as well.

  1. There is no indication that changes are in progress (such as when a large change is made, e.g. retroactively applying a new license to thousands of observations, which can take a full few minutes). The button stays blue after it is clicked.
  2. The medium grey text on white background is perfectly legible to me, but I have very good eyesight [18/20] and young eyes. I worry that people with poor vision will struggle with the low contrast. This is compounded by the fact that the explanatory text is relatively small.

I’ve also noticed that it sometimes takes me several tries of clicking on the button for it to work.
