How to Download and Print the TV schedule:Download & Print: For best results, download the schedule to your computer before printing. To do this, right-click on the schedule link and select "Save Target" or "Save Link" and choose a location on your computer to download. Once downloaded, open the file and select "Print" from the menu. The schedule is in PDF format and requires Adobe Acrobat to open. If you do not have it installed, first install Adobe Acrobat Reader. (Macintosh users: the built-in Preview application will open the PDF if you double-click on the file.)
Note: If you have Adobe Acrobat installed and are still experiencing problems downloading the schedule, follow these instructions: Open your Adobe Acrobat program and find "preferences" which may be under "File" or "Edit" in the menu. Once you click on "preferences," look under "categories" and select "internet." Under "Web Browser Options" uncheck the box that says "Display PDF in browser" and click OK.
Every once in a while, I come across a business requirement asking me to force a PDF document to be downloaded from a website instead of opened in the user's browser. While I question this every time since it is forcing the user to do more work to read the content, it's a small tweak to the site to implement and thus usually does get implemented.
While I know exceptions always exist, does anyone have any insight for if it's a good practice to force a user to download a PDF file instead of letting it open in their browser (or whatever default the user has)?
What is breaking the user experience of browsing the web these days, is that many websites treat links differently. There is nothing for the user to learn, there is no mental model to be built, from the user's perspective what happens when you click on any link is completely random. One reason for this is that people let their personal preference get in the way of designing a proper interface. I see lots of people that prefer PDF's to be downloaded and make that the rule for other people regardless of what they think. I've had many clients request that links to anything but their website is opened in a new window, but if you fear losing visitors taking them hostage is not the answer.
The only way we can make people experience a sense of autonomy and control when browsing the web is to stop customizing what clicking a link does. For your visitor, your website is just like any other website. Please just let them use, and learn to use, the control that is already at their disposal. Right click in any browser allows you to download a PDF instead of opening it (that is, unless you broke the behavior of the link). Any PDF viewer in the browser has a quick "download me" button. While Nielsen and Norman are probably right, it should be interpreted as aimed at builders of browsers and PDF readers, not at individual website developers.
A bit of personal perspective. If you're doing a literature study that involves looking through dozens and dozens of research papers, the last thing you want to have to do is to keep track of your browser, your downloads, and your PDF viewer. If you're unsure the PDF has what you're looking for it's much much easier to view the PDF in the browser, have a peek, hit the back button. If you need to recall it it's in your browser history, if you don't it's gone. If you downloaded it, you'd need to wait for the download, find it in either the download manager or Windows Explorer, then open it in a reader. If you find you don't need it, you need to close it, delete it, find your way back to your browser.
Firstly, you can (and should?) always give the user autonomy. You can ask the user if he wants to open the pdf in a new tab or download and open the pdf with a preferred application. This is also in line with the UX guideline that the user should always feel in control.
However, if the PDF is a submission or document of some kind, and it's the document itself that's the point then it makes more sense to go straight to download. This is the case on sites like arXiv that act as document repositories, or in situations where the user wants the document to save or send rather than to read (at least immediately).
For example, I worked on a data collection webservice project not too long ago in which the completed forms could be exported as documents, so we displayed the form in HTML, and the "export" button triggered a direct download. Sending the user to view the PDF first breaks their workflow in situations like this; they can see the info on the page, so they don't need to see it again as a PDF (which will take time to load, depending on how snappy your browser's PDF handling is). When in doubt, provide both options as separate buttons or in a dropdown, so the user can decide for themselves whether they want to read the PDF or just download it.
If through user behavior research you find that the users of your website prefer to save their pdf documents for later reading (for example, you might be running an online library of some kind), then it might be a good idea to force download. However the number of users who prefer downloading should considerably outweigh the other group, otherwise it's not worth it breaking the default functionality.
I do not know of any other compelling reason to force users to download the content; however as this is your business requirement it might be worth asking if there is a reason for this requirement. Maybe there is. However if they want to implement it "just because", then it's probably not worth it breaking the standard expected behavior.
Disagree with Nielson. PDFs should open in browser first. Users are wary of downloading viruses. They don't want to populate their hard drive with unnecessary files. Browser first, they can download it from there if they choose.
I would also question the requirement to automatically download a pdf, but outside of usability issues there are security risks. Google must also have these concerns, because as of last fall they enacted a Chrome Canary channel that will open up pdfs in the Chrome browser bypassing your Adobe or Foxit Reader apps.
I have never tried to implement this solution, and I'm not sure it is completely possible for all platforms. I always let it do what it did, and did not say or imply in the interface it'll download (just indicate it's a PDF and not a link) since so many browsers will view automatically now.
It might be a good idea to ask if it HAS to be a PDF. I've noticed that it is increasingly possible to get organizations (large and small) to get with the times and convert to HTML (or another format) instead.
If possible it's always best to give the users different options. However, allowing them to have a look before downloading the file, it will allow the user to see if the document would be useful. It is a good user experience to allow them to open it in the browser, read the table of contents and then evaluate if it's worth downloading it. Users will not want to download documents that you might not want to use.
Nobody here mentioned protected PDFs. Forcing a download might be convenient because saved locally the PDF will most likely keep its security level while browser viewers ignore all protection settings within a PDF file.
That said, I bet we can all agree that users generally do not like surprises. If the link to the PDF does something that I don't expect it to, then I lose trust. Whether or not the link will download a PDF or open it inside the browser, I'd like to be very aware ahead of time of what's going to happen if I click any given link.
However, reliability is usually something a business entity would strive for so it makes sense to only allow users to download. Downloading, in my experience, is leaps and bounds more reliable than opening a PDF in a web browser. So maybe that's the thinking behind their decision.
You could have one or several small screenshots, and no preview/open-in-browser option, from the PDF to give the user some brief visual explanation of what they're about to get if they decide to press the download button.
