What should happen after a successful submit on an admin content creation page?

by Sloth Armstrong   Last Updated May 12, 2016 08:06 AM

I am creating a website in which its admins have elevated privileges to create articles and other content through forms. Using the article creation scenario, what behavior would be most ideal for an admin upon successful form submission? The scenarios might be:

  1. Clear all inputs and give the admin the opportunity to create another article.
  2. Disable the submit button.
  3. Redirect the admin to the live article view page if they chose to "publish" it on submission. What if they didn't publish it?
  4. Bring them back to the main admin page.

Is there any clear option here that I should go with? In any case if the admin is not redirected there will be a success message dialog. There are a couple similar posts on UX but none specific to admins that I can find. Thanks in advance!

What's the most likely scenario? Do admins commonly add several articles? - - create and add another Do the articles have formatting they have to review? - - create and review

Otherwise send them back to where they come from.

In some cases you need them to edit what they just created, like add some data, then i send them to the edit page.

You can also add several buttons with clear labels.
