For empty status screen, which option is better?
Have two identical buttons, one in the normal place (next to the header) and one next to the text that explains what the user should do
pros: the button next to the text makes the action easy to find
Cons: redundancy can confuse users, they may think that they are different actions (although the design and text are exactly the same)
Have only one button next to the header, where you will also be later.
pros: cleaner screen
Cons: There is a possibility that users may miss the CTA.
This is for a desktop system that users use on a daily basis,
I could not find any clear reference for option 1, and I am against using arrows to point the top button
