With some Ajax processes, you may be able to cut requests drastically by changing when requests are made (as opposed to how often). For example, say you have a page in which the user can dynamically reorder a list of items. Offhand, you might be tempted to perform an Ajax request with each change in the order (presumably, the request would save the new order in the database). However, it’s likely the user would make multiple changes, resulting in multiple requests, and the fact is that it’s only the final order that really matters. One simple solution would be to add a submit button for the user to click and have the single Ajax request performed at that time. (To be safe, you’d probably want to add code that alerts the user should he or she attempt to leave the page after making changes without saving them.)
6. Don’t interrupt or change the subject. Many assertive professionals finish others’ sentences out of habit. If you jump in and interrupt someone’s sentence, you prevent him or her from fully expressing his or her thoughts. Though your intentions may be good, the other person may perceive you to be a know-it-all or in a rush. Or worse, the person may think you are trying to put words in his or her mouth. Always permit the other person enough time to finish their thought before you respond. Your patience and thoughtfulness will be appreciated.
