47 +=== Defining an '##usability##' issue ===
48 +
49 +* Usability issues refer exclusively to interface/front-end issues, since only these issues affect the end-user directly.
50 +* The generic definition of an usability issue is if it is preventing the user from completing a task. This means the functionality is not usable and thus useless.
51 +* Improvements on a specific functionality are also considered usability issues if implementing that functionality will provide an obvious benefit to the user by making things clearer, improving learnability, making things easier to use, improving the way the user interacts with the system, boosting productivity etc.
52 +** Most of the 'Improvements' issues are usability improvements, but this doesn't mean 'Bugs' or 'New Features' cannot be labeled as usability issues. Also we could have 'Improvements' that are not usability issues.
