Admin actions displayed as buttons instead of drop-down list
My suggestion is to show admin actions as buttons when the number of actions is small (eg. less than 4, but configurable).
- UI would be sleeker;
- Easier to discover custom actions (removes the need to click the combobox only to find out what actions are available);
- Reduces the number of clicks needed from three (expand, pick, Go) to one;
- Drop-down menu would be shown if there are many actions, so the UI would not be cluttered with buttons.
